How do we select MVPs?

Firstly, it's essential to understand that merely writing articles on C# Corner does not guarantee the MVP (Most Valuable Professional) Award. The C# Corner MVP Award is a prestigious accolade reserved for our top members who are true community leaders and sources of inspiration for others.

Annually, a specific number of MVPs, ranging between 120 and 150, are chosen for this award. This implies that you must be among the top 150 contributors over the last 12 months to qualify as an MVP. Being ranked 151st might mean missing out on the selection. Contributions considered for this award include points earned from various activities such as articles, blogs, forum responses, eBooks, speaking engagements, webinars, and other community involvement. Another crucial factor is the engagement your content generates. For instance, an article attracting 1 million views in a year will earn more points than one with 1000 views. Featured articles also carry additional weight in the MVP award considerations. Contributions like speaking at conferences, writing eBooks, and hosting webinars significantly impact your score.

Additionally, some MVPs are chosen for their behind-the-scenes efforts in supporting the community and improving the platform. This can include promoting C# Corner in colleges and universities or writing code to enhance the forums.
