MVPs allowed to crowd source funding of personal hardware on MSDN? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Why does MSDN allow MVPS to conduct personal crowd sourcing on the homepage of MSDN?

    The first time "dotNetDave" begged for money for his new laptop I let it side, but this is at least his second go around.  I respect anyone who contributes to the community and his recognition as an MVP is to be applauded.

    His beg-athon is not the kind of repeated content I expect from an MVP.

  • The article in question was featured on the homepage of the MSDN site as "latest community MVP content".

    His profile is: https://mvp.microsoft.com/en-us/mvp/David%20McCarter-4040072

    I appreciate his contributions to the .Net community and if this only appeared on his blog then power to him, however it became a featured item on the MSDN homepage. I think that is not appropriate.  If a member of the community is going to blog about needing money as he regularly does then I think his blog should not be featured.

    It appears as though MVP blogs are no longer featured so the issue is moot.

  • MVP blogs are aggregated automatically on MSDN. Probably the user needs to change the feed for aggregation.
