    No, I never wrote article in my name on MSDN or publish books. And when I was awarded MVP, there was no such thing as MSDN forum. You list your achievements elsewhere, and better provide data that can be independently verified.

    If your regional Microsoft office does not have staff and budget for MVP, I don't know how your application and contribution can get translated/independently verified. Contact http://twitter.com/#!/mvpaward if you want the program to expand to your country/region.

  • On the page you linked:

    By clicking Create you confirm that you are a full time Microsoft employee and have agreed to the Microsoft policies for blogging.

    I don't see your account with a Microsoft Employee tag.

  • Hi

    Full time Microsoft Employee?!

    This is quite impossible for my case because of the nepotism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nepotism) phenomenon in my region. Really really sorry to say that but this is the situation!

    Unfortunatly, I will just drop the idea and that's it and I'm sorry and dissapointed at the same time to say that, I'm disapointed because I do believe that my contribution will be a value added the community given my motivation, background and anterior contibutions within the community, by the way, I recieved the Microsoft Community Contibutor Award for 2011, thank you anyway for the information

     

    Best Reguards

  • Sorry but I do expect a web site for Microsoft employees blogs somewhere on the Internet to simplify my search for voices from within Microsoft. Some Microsoft blogs used to be on the live space site, making them next to impossible to find. 

    I don't know the rules of community contributors but I would imagine you are subject to the non-disclosure agreement like MVPs, so I don't expect your blog to contain information that are subject to NDA rules. Only Microsoft can make those information public. If I were to monitor Microsoft's blogs to see when I can talk about NDA content, I wouldn't monitor your blog. There are other reasons that people want to hear voices from Microsoft. If you want to join the party, submit your resume to Microsoft. 

    Community contributors are independent experts, you should expect some kind of neutrality from the community.

  • Hi Sheng

    You get the point by saying " I would imagine you are subject to the non-disclosure agreement like MVPs"

    The mater of fact is as you said I'm really interested in the MVP and that's way I tried to create an MSDN blog and start contributing.You know to be an MVP you have to contibute to MSDN by responding to questions, writing technical MSDN articles or writing books on Microsoft Staff(If I'm wrong please correct me)

    I tried to contact my regional Microsoft office to get more information about how to become MVP. And the responsible that I contacted said to me "We don't have such program, and you have to send a clear request by only by mail(means don't come to the office or contact me face to face) " and I send her a mail with a clear request as she suggests but she simply ignored me. It's really disapointing!

    I have asked the international microsoft staff (Not in my region Of Corse because they aren't helpfull) about creating MSDN blogs directly. And I completely understand and respect their standard(Only FTE could have blogs) but this doesn't constraint me to contribute to the community and become an MVP I thing (If I'm wrong please correct me).

    If you have any tricks about that issue, please feal free to comment

    Thank you
