    MCC badge last 3 month - one month needed to propagate the badge into the profile and therefore it may be only visible for 2 month if the badge would not be extended for any reasons?

    Why does it take up to one month to appear in the profile ?

    As the the welcome mail is sent to the e-mail assigned to the profile why could the MCC badge not been enabled immediately after sending the welcome mail ?

    That's what I was wondering... If google can find 921231231223112132132 search results in one tenth of a nano second, surely Microsoft can update a profile badge in less than a month....

    I got the following answer:

    This information is not current as the MCC badges are provided within the first week of the award cycle once the MCC claims the award. Currently there is an issue with a small number of MCCs not seeing their forums badge appearing. We are working towards correcting this and will update with more information when available. Hopefully should be corrected by next wee

  • I got the same response. I replied that the number of people is not small.

    It's strange that they would say to you the part about "once the mcc claims the award", because in my opinion the initial email makes it clear that no actual "claiming" on the part of the mcc is even necessary.

    This is the way my award email read:

    Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that your contributions to Microsoft online technical communities have been recognized with the Microsoft Community Contributor badge. 

    This recognition is reserved for participants who made notable contributions in Microsoft online communities such as MSDN, TechNet and Microsoft Answers. The value of these online resources is greatly enhanced by participants like you who voluntarily contribute your time and energy to improve the online community experience for others. 

    What does this mean to you?
    First, in the next few days, you’ll notice a "MCC" badge appearing next to your name. This will appear automatically and will remain there for the next three months. At this time we will reevaluate your contribution levels to see if the recognition will continue on a quarterly basis. 

    Additionally, we would like to highlight you on our official badge website. Simply respond to a few questions and we’ll share a little about you with the larger community, including your blog URL, Twitter handle and more. This step is completely optional but will give you some great exposure. 


    If you want something you've never had, you need to do something you've never done.

  • I received a better answer from MCC coordinator which I'll quote here:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello Naomi,

    You have a valid set of questions and I’m hopeful I can answer them as thoroughly as possible. 

    First, I wanted to address the question pertaining to the badge not appearing in the community.  With the new re-launch of the Microsoft Community Contributor badge, we are steadily adding the badge next to the names of those who’ve received the recognition.  In the process of this change, there was a small operational bug that prevented a limited number of Microsoft Community Contributors from seeing the badge.  A member of our team has personally taken to remedy this issue as soon as possible.  This, hands down, is our top priority, because it’s a primary component of being recognized.

    Regarding your other question about who gets recognized, it gets a bit more complex, but I’ll try and explain it.  We have made some changes as to how we select those who receive the badge versus how individuals who were selected for being Microsoft Community Contributors under the award offering.  Previously, we chiefly looked at activity in the forums with some evaluation of the activity in other community areas such as wikis, blogs, etc.  Now, we are taking those other non-forum contributions and bringing them into more into focus.  This helps highlight the amazing contributions made not just in the limited question and answer area, but in the overall community.  We now evaluate a slew of contributions including (but not limited to): localizing content for other languages, answering questions in forums, contributing to wiki projects and more.   Will this change from quarter to quarter?  Most likely.  This is especially true considering the increasing amounts of visibility into what contributions are being made in other areas of the communities and changes within the communities that we recognize contributors in.
