How to get points for Blogs and Galleries(MCC and MVP) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    My question is if I gave answer to the question it is on Microsoft forum so I get the points straight away. But if I do blog somewhere else how do Microsoft know that I am doing blogging and my blogs/Galleries is quite popular in the community.

    Another question in order to get MCC or MVP award do I need to do blogging and answer to the forum question for full one year in order to consider for that

    I mean Microsoft award MCC and MVP in the start of every year or it could be any time in the year as well

    I think someone might be able to reply this question in more detailed manner

    Many thanks

  • MVP awards people on January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st. New MCC are awarded each month (usually at the end of the previous month).

  • Blog is in the meaning of microsoft blog which can be earned only by microsoft emploee.

    Gallery is meant by the visual studio gallery here:: http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/

    If you have got questions about this, just ask.

    In a perfect world,
    users would never enter data in the wrong form,
    files they choose to open would always exist
    and code would never have bugs.

  • I believe for Galleries contributions you can get points and medals. Only MS employees can blog on MSDN, but you can write articles in TechNet WiKi. If you would be considered for MVP, your blogs will be considered also. I don't think blogs matter for MCC award.
