This week I found out I have been renewed as a Microsoft Xbox MVP for another year.

This is how Microsoft describes the Xbox MVPs:

“Xbox MVPs are community leaders who’ve demonstrated an exemplary commitment to helping others get the most out of their experience with Xbox products and services. They share their passion, knowledge, and expertise with Xbox and the community while encouraging others to do the same.

Selecting and awarding the title of Xbox MVP is an opportunity to showcase the vital role community plays in Xbox products and services. The award allows Xbox to recognize community leaders for their contributions while bringing other voices into product and service development through direct conversations, relationships, and the annual MVP Conference.

There is no formula for becoming an MVP, in part because there are so many ways that one can contribute to Xbox and the community. Some of the evaluation criteria include contributions to online forums, events, conferences, podcasts, websites, social media platforms, and charitable efforts. These contributions are carefully reviewed and compared among the other nominees. Current MVPs receive the same review process each year.”

This is the 12th year of being an MVP and I am truly honoured!
