How do we select MVPs?
Let me start with this that just because you write articles on C# Corner doesn't mean you will become an MVP. C# Corner MVP Award is a recognition to our top members who are true community leaders and inspiration to others. 
Each year, there is a fixed number (Between 120 -  150) of MVPs are selected for the MVP award. That means, to become an MVP, you must be in top 150 contributors for last 12 months. If you are 151st, chances are, you may not be selected for the award. The contributions include the points earn from contributions including articles, blogs, forums answers, eBooks, speaking, webinars, and everything else you do on the community. One other factor that is important is, the engagement on your content. For example, if you have an article that gets 1 million views in a year will get you more points than an article that gets 1000 views. Featurd articles will get more points towards the MVP award. Speaking at conferences, writing eBooks, and webinars are impact the score. 
Some MVPs may also get selected for helping behind the scene helping community and improvements in the platform. For example, there can be an MVP who is increasing awareness of C# Corner community at colleges and universities or there can also be an MVP who is wriitng code to fix forums.
