Am I Missing Something?

This is for all the current MVPs and Microsoft Group
=================================

I am participation in Microsoft Windows XP and Office Newsgroup from last 2
years. In this time period, I tried to help others through best of my
knowledge. Please do not take me wrong as this was not just because I wanted
to become MVP. In this time period I also have significant improvement in my
knowledge.

But I am amazed that till date I have not receive a single comment through
any MVP or Microsoft Group about my ranking in MVP. 106 helpful post are not
enough to be recognized as an MVP or do I need to participate in other
activities? Am I missing something?

Your responses in this regard will highly be appreciated.

Does it really matters? VERY STRANGE.

That means, next time I should also consider the way I reply to the posts. I
can say it is very annoying and unacceptable for me. What If I still want to
use the web-interface? That means they will never or will take more time to
recognized me as an MVP.

Waiting for reply.

A lot of those MVPs do that many, or more, posts in a weeks time.

You gotta LIVE here.

And post until your eyes begin to bleed from staring at the monitor.

While not sure, I would also suspect that you need to post an accurate email
address (fudged to prevent bots from finding the real address) so that MS
could contact you, if and when you would qualify for the status. Since I
don't have any interest in MVP status, just want to try to help others, I
don't use a real email address in my signature or message details.

Probably. For starters, even I have posted more in less time than 106 posts
in 2 years. However, I have a somewhat abrasive attitude, and have rubbed a
few people (including at least two MVPs) the wrong way. One "Awshit" wipes
out a boatload of "Attaboys".

I am not really intersted in the MVP, anyway. I got something similar in
another forum (web only, no NNTP service), and it means I really have to
watch my tongue. I didn't ask for their MVM; and I get an occasional
nastygram from forum moderators (there are none of those in these groups;
but I would be surprised if those who award MVPs don't monitor them after
the award) when I step over the line.

Another MVP has to *nominate* you, and other MVPs choose to vote you
in. You can participate for years before getting nominated and it
depends on how beneficial you have been and how the nominator
perceives your help. Trying to earn points is not how you get to be
an MVP. In fact, because you have admitted trying to earn an MVP is
the very reason why you should not get one. Are you going to leave if
you don't get nominated? If so, you don't deserve the nomination.
That you think you deserve the MVP badge means you do not deserve it.
You participate because you want to, not to slap a shiny badge on your
moniker.

An MVP wannabe that uses a webnews-for-dummies interface. Uh huh,
real MVP material there ... not!

106 posts. Geez, a extreme beginner that dreams of MVPdom. I just
honed my Xacto blade. Guess I'm a heart surgeon now. You will need
several THOUSAND posts and YEARS of participation unless your help was
super stellar (but not evidenced by your post here).

Begging for the MVP badge should guarantee that you won't get it. And
from your low rate of participation, you definitely haven't earned
even a glimmer of nomination.

You and me both!

Thanks to all of you for your time and suggestions.

Especially, "VanguardLH" as I was accepting this kind of answer. You are
right. I was here for MVP status. But not know.

As the time passes, I started getting more interest helping others.
Discussing their problems with my friends and what we can do to prevent
errors. Finding ways to solve problems and there was a time when I was
posting 10 to 20 post in a day.

I am computer teacher and running a computer institution and I feel that
whenever I login to Microsoft Newsgroup everyday I learn a new thing.

Today, I ask this question because I have seen many MVPs who had helped only
few peoples like 30 to 75 Rated Posts but they have the MVP status. Where as
on today, I have 106 successful rated post out of 1794 posts (even 50 to 70
successful post was not being rated) but still I have not received a single
comment from any MVP.

Today, I am not here just for MVP award. I am enjoying posting here. I will
work harder and one day I will be called MVP. The city where I live nobody
knows what a MVP is and nobody is interested to know. Can you imagine that
post of people around me have learned Windows, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and
Internet Explorer just in a month or two. So, how would they know what a MVP
is? I don't want to show off anything to anyone. I am self employed and not
going to apply for a job in near future too.

The MVP award is just for my satisfaction only.

Hi,

........>106 helpful post are not enough.......

.......No.

That was my first thought too, then I realized it was a typo and should
have been more than 1,600 posts, not 160.

What size hat do you wear?

around 50-70 was not being rated even they were helpful. You know people

So what do you think know!

:

I don't HAVE a button that says "Was this post helpful..." because I don't
use a horrid web interface.

On an affiliated matter, why do you want to be recognized as a MVP?

Just come here to learn and help (when you can). You'd be surprised
how much information you can cull by either lurking or participating
in Usenet. Most come to ask a question and maybe answer a couple in
return for the help they got. Then they get hooked because it is a
community, an anarchy to be sure but still a community. You shouldn't
be concerned at getting a shiny MVP badge. If that is your goal, you
aren't here for the right reason(s).

The voting is only when using the webnews-for-dummies interface to
Usenet that Microsoft provides. That is NOT the Usenet. That is just
Microsoft providing yet another forum-to-Usenet gateway.

I am a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) and I have the certification
which is duly signed by Mr. Bill Gates (actually scan and printed).

You see peoples are around me, 50% of them have basic knowledge of Windows,
Office and Internet but they don't know what MICROSOFT is. Some who knows
about Microsoft and Bill Gates, they sometimes ask me that is that Bill Gates
signatures and you know what:

IT IS A: MEDAL OF HONOR: for me. Microsoft says "You are Certified
Professional".
