  • Today, no blogs are counted towards the new recognition system. The MSDN and TechNet blogs will be added over the next month or so. Beyond that, we are still working on the plans.

  • Only Microsoft site blogs are counted, from what I can tell. Anything else e.g. WordPress blog posts, don't count toward the MS network achievement system. I've been wondering where that was actually stated.

    If I find a link that references it specifically, I'll post it.

  • Will it be possible to count blogs on other sites also towards recognition? I have blogs on two sites (www.beyondrelational.com and www.lessthandot.com and I'd like to keep these blogs).

    Also, I did update my profile (tried it a few times), but I didn't get any bronze points for that. I also rated a few items in the Gallery, but got just one bronze medal.

  • Today on Microsoft Employees are able to blog on the TechNet Blogs, so unfortunately no I can give you a login to start blogging.

  • At this point we are still investigating what off platform blogging recognition might look like. Stay tuned on that.

    As to the bronze achievements. You need to update all aspects of your profile to receive that achievement. The Gallery related achievements beyond your first rating of a sample require on-going ratings to earn more. If you've got samples to contribute you'll also receive more achievements and begin to acrue recognition points.

  • What do you mean by Profile? When I press Edit Profile button from the My Profile, I have a very simple form with few entry boxes. I have everything filled there and I also have an avatar. So, I don't understand what else can I add to My Profile.

    As for the code samples, what kind of the code samples they should be? Say, does this one

     

    can be considered as a code sample

  • We only went back through about 8 months of activities to give out the first set of achievements. So if you simply update all the fields, then you'll soon receive the achievement for profile completion :)

    And sure, that code sample could be quite useful. I'm trying to find out where the best place to put SQL related scripts and samples but I'll let you know.

  • I published it http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/4a854353-17dc-4ccd-ac86-cb91970407ac but I found that the description I entered disappeared and only the script remains. I'm not sure how to add the description back.

  • Thanks for publishing it. I'm not 100% sure why the description went away. That said there is a discussion tab on the sample - you could start a discussion and add your description there.

  • Hi Sean,

    I was just wondering if you have any update in this?

    I know that now the new recogintion system awards the activity on MSDN and TechNet blogs. Is there any plan to add other blog platforms to the count?

     

    Thanks in advance,
