Microsoft Community Contributor Award 2011

Okay, I’m surprised. I got a mail from Microsoft few hours ago stating that I’ve been awarded “Microsoft Community Contributor Award” for the year 2011. This is the mail (but not the complete one) I got.

Microsot Contributor Award

Dear Raghavendra,

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

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

Thank you for your commitment to Microsoft online technical communities and congratulations again!

Thank you Microsoft for your recognition. Okay what else do I get apart from the certificate and the cool badges? They have given me 12 month free subscription for “Microsoft Press E-Reference Library” which have hundreds of books in different formats and the patterns and practices whitepapers etc. Cool!
