If you check the Top Contributor list of the last 30 days right now you will find lots of SAP employees in the top spots. Reason is, that we gave every SAP TechEd presenter 250 points for each session held whether in the SDN Clubhouse or not. These sessions were mostly conducted by SAP people, that there was no chance to give points in the forums the last three days didn’t help either. If you think this is distorting the picture there is an easy way to eliminate all of these SAP flag carriers on the list.

You just select the radio button at the bottom of the screen: Exclude SAP Employees. See this result:

Here Sanjay Sinha is still leading the list of all SDNers within the last 30 days. Thomas Jung, who in the Small Announcements didn’t even make the top 15 is back at number 4. I guess he has finished the draft of the BSP book that he writing together with Brian McKellar. Actually Thomas was super active at the Boston TechEd, so he got some well deserved points for that.

In other news: The point system is back. It has been ruled out as the culprit in our system stability problems. So please be so kind and go back to all the wonderful answers that you have gotten in the last couple of days and award points points points. Be specially generous this time, because these SDNers have given you answers even though they weren’t sure if they would ever get points for their effort.

As I have written in the Rewarding points in the forums – October 26, 2005 these stability problems I guess come with the success of having over 250K members and a lots of users. (Even though SDN was down a couple of times we still clocked in at over 1100 posts per day last week.) SDN’s availability over the weekend was 100%. Of course there was less load. Have not seen today’s statistic, but I didn’t have problems when I was on it. I guess Halloween as well as the holiday in Germany tomorrow helps. We will let you know in detail what the reason was once we have fixed it.

Beyond SAP: Two new services that display today’s most interesting stories Google News like, just weighted by the authority of other blogs that point to them: Blogniscient as well as Memeorandum. It is a bit like our DevToday just taking into account not only your preferences, but other trusted sources preferences too. Very interesting.

        Well I looked at both of the them.  The 700 point one doesn’t appear to be me, but all the recent contributions listed are things that I have done.

        I guess my next weblog will have to be entitled “How to Clone yourself for fun and profit”.

          Sorry Thomas,
          There is actually a second Thomas Jung on our system. You just have a little generic name. I moved the points back to your own user. Which brings you back on top. (Within 24 hours). Goes to show how productive you are even while writing a BSP book. Amazing.
          It also showed a little flow in our Business Card. To display the contributions we are doing searches against the database using your name. If there are people with exactly the same name, both contributions are shown in the Business Card. Sorry have to go to city hall now to get a name change. There are two Thomas Jungs already, so how about a second Craig Cmehil on SDN? 🙂
          Best, Mark.
