Microsoft recognizes Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) on the first day of each quarter and yesterday was an "MVP Day."
Some people had a great day yesterday. Congratulations to new and renewed MVPs! Others were disappointed. I've been there and want to encourage those nominated and not awarded. You're not doing community stuff for an MVP award - you're doing it for the community. Keep doing what you're doing. Recognition will come and go. Satisfaction isn't in awards, it's in watching the community grow.
Keep doing that.
