It’s that time of year again: there’s a certain magic in the air, a sense of excitement. It’s time for the announcement of the SCN Topic Leader contest winners!

The SCN Topic Leader contest is a way of highlighting the most active experts in certain topics in the community.

A Quick Reminder of the Contest Rules

This year’s contest period covered the twelve months from August 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014. As I explained in my recent blog post, Topic Expertise on SCN – Updates to the SCN Topic Leader Contest, the first criterion is that you be one of the top three members in a topic space in terms of points earned in that space during the 12 months of the contest period.

Like last year, we included a point threshold as one of the criteria as well: this year the threshold is 500 points. And as was the case in the past, we applied this criterion to select active and meaningful areas of expertise—certain areas such as Getting Started or Events are not included.

The wait was long, but now the results are in!

It’s All About Recognition

What do the winners of this contest earn? Topic Leaders will receive an Acknowledgement of Achievement per e-mail (please be patient, it will still take a few weeks to get those out). And of course, there will be a nice badge to post in your Me-in-3 selection on SCN!

Unfortunately, we cannot give Topic Leaders a free pass to SAP TechEd && d-code. We have not done that in the past either. Nevertheless, if you are listed below as a Topic Leader, and you will be coming to Las Vegas, Berlin, or Bangalore (this year’s venues), we would like to hear about it, as we do plan to give you the opportunity to meet SCN team members and SAP Mentors there.

A Final Word Before We Get to the List

A lot of hard work goes on in the background to prepare this list, and I want to give a shout-out to a few folks who deserve it here. Bunchball and SAP IT had a hand in providing us with the report we needed to start with, and Caroleigh Deneen and windy chan were instrumental in moving the vetting process along. All of this under the unwavering support and guidance of Jeanne Carboni.

And of course, we could not have finalized the list without the SCN Moderators and Space Editors, who gave their time to help review it.

Thank you to all of you, and to other SAP employees who work unwaveringly to support this community. We could not run it without you!

And now… Join me in congratulating our winners, the 2013-2014 SCN Topic Leaders!  /wp-content/uploads/2014/09/272418_l_srgb_s_gl_549696.jpg
