I know the contest period ended on July 31 and you’ve been waiting to see the list of Topic Leaders. I just wanted to let you know that the list will come very soon. As previously explained, this time around was a bit different with two different systems and different areas to accumulate points in.

There was some manual work involved to map the point categories to the current SCN spaces but thanks to Richard Lin, a new intern in the SCN team, this has been done and the list is currently being finalized and reviewed.

I am about to take a nice vacation but Richard will announce the names of the 2011-2012 Topic Leaders latest by end of next week (August 16). Stay tuned and make sure you follow Richard and read his blog.

With a new SCN and more game mechanics to come, we will redesign this program to make it more appealing, to recognize expertise as judged by the community and to keep you informed on how you are doing and motivated along the way. I will be blogging about our gamification project soon.

              Hi Koti,

              Apologies for the delay. We had noticed some discrepancies with the calculation of points, due to the old and new SCN transition, and will have the announcement up shortly.

              Once again, apologies for the delay, and please stay tuned.

              Cheers,

              Richard

    Hi everyone,

    In case you haven’t seen it yet, the list has just been published by Richard Lin. Check out our SCN Topic Leaders 2011-2012 in this blog and congratulations to all!

    Again, I want to apologize for the delay this year, it was a lot of manual work to put the list together (thank you Richard for your help) and some discussions with our Moderators who screened the list. It was a team work 🙂

    Best,

    Laure

      Hi Laure,

                     I got topic leader award for the last two years.  I believe the contest starts August 1st every year and ends the next year July.. So, today is the last day for this year?  I did lose about 300 points during May end sometime… I dont know whether it was database error or something. I was in the second position but somehow dropped to the third position. Are you considering top three leaders as of July 31st for determination? Please answer

        Hi Baskar,

        Sorry for replying only now. Are you talking about your contributions in the PI and SOA Middleware space?

        Sean Yang will take a look at your records in the system and we will make sure that none of your contributions/points got lost.

        And yes, we look at contributions until July 31 this year.

        Best,

        Laure

        Hi Baskar,

        I checked the full point history of your account and didn’t find point deductions like that. If possible, please provide some more info so we might find the reason. For example, did you observe the deduction from the masthead/your profile page or from the leaderboard in a space?

          Hi Sean,

                        Thanks for your reply. Can I know the total points I got from August 1st 2012 to July 31st 2013 ?  If you provide this information, that would be helpful.
