Code samples in Gallery or Samples RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any difference in contributing to Gallery or Samples? I had already contributed more than 15 code samples in Samples. But still not received "15 Code Snippet" flair in my profile. And also is there any flair called Code Sample contributor like we have Gallery Contributor. And how can I get MVP label in my profile? (I am already a MVP). Please clarify my doubts. Thanks in advance.

    Edit: When I go to http://mvp.support.microsoft.com/, getting an error as This site can't be reached.

    Kindest Regards

    I'd make sure the email associated with your MSDN profile and microsoft account is the same one you used for MVP. If questions I'd ask your lead and or email mvpga

  • I don't think so. You can read about recognition here.

  • Your profile shows 28 contributions to Galleries. And the Activities tab shows you have published to both the TechNet Gallery and the Samples Gallery. I also see achievements for downloads in both Galleries. They seem to me to be the same for recognition. If you feel you have achieved a medal that does not show in your profile, wait at least a week. Some are slower to show up, as if the are updated less frequently. If it has been more than a week, email fissues [at] microsoft [dot] com with details, and they will investigate.

    Edit: Maybe I am mistaken. The link Dave Patrick posted talks about points for number of downloads and ratings. There is no mention of achievements (which used to be called medals), gold, silver, and bronze. The achievements I am familiar with include "Gallery Contributor II", which you have. These are documented here:

    What is the "15 code snippet" you refer to? I don't see anything like it in the link I posted.

  • That image must be old. I don't recognize any of those achievements, and cannot find anyone who has them. None of the achievements I have ever seen has numbers like the ones in your image. The new recognition system, with the current achievements, was introduced in early July of 2011, and must have replaced the one in that image, which is no longer used. The link I posted has the current achievements, including the ones you have in your profile.

  • Thanks much for the answer. I really appreciate it. Please see the image below. 

    My doubt is, I have already contributed 25 Code samples and 4 Galley contribution. But it seems like it shows only medal related to my 4 gallery contribution. So I just want to know whether there is any difference in contributing to Gallery(https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/) and Code samples(https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/)? Please clarify my doubt as I am kind of new here. Any help is appreciated.

  • Hi, Thanks again for the reply. Actually I took the image from the link you have mentioned https://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/ff395928.aspx. Yes you are right, it seems like an old one. I guess I have come to an answer that there is no difference in contributing Gallery(https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/) or Code samples(https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/). I have received Gallery Contributor II medal, but for the Gallery Contributor III medal, my code snippets must be downloaded 3000 times, but mine is just 20165 so far.

    I hope this is why there is no updates in medals in my profile. I really got confused because of the old image which has old medals information( Like 5 Wiki articles, 15 code contributions) . I have already raised a ticked on this here. Thank you every one for the help. 

    Kindest Regards
