Introducing the first annual Mobile Nations Community Awards!

Mobile Nations Community Awards
By James Falconer on 21 Nov 2012 02:35 pm EST

Be it Android CentralCrackBerryiMoreWindows Phone Central or webOS Nation, you need only dive into any of our forums for a few minutes to realize what makes them so special is the amazing group of individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty every single day to make them a helpful, friendly and fun community to be part of. 

With the introduction of the first annual Mobile Nations Community Awards, we are going to better acknowledge and reward the members and volunteers who have made outstanding contributions to our Mobile Nations community across our individual sites and give them the full recognition they truly deserve.

And there are so many people too recognize. Passionate members who share their expert knowledge freely, answering and troubleshooting the questions and issues of new users at all times of the day. We have many volunteer moderators, advisors and ambassadors, who not only keep the forums organized and under control, but also produce guides and tutorials to help device owners get the most out of their ownership experience. And then you have somebody like Cory Streater, our Android-loving Forums Administrator, who has put literally thousands of hours into the forums on all of our sites over the years behind the scenes, squashing bugs and adding new features that make the forums rock.

We have a lot of categories planned for the Community Awards. Next week we'll be following up with another post here and in each of the forums, opening up nominations and voting for some of the different categories. In the meantime, if you have any ideas for specific categories of awards you would like to see us acknowledge, be sure to let us know!

Introducing the first annual Mobile Nations Community Awards!


Big second on Cory, that guy should get the life time achivevment award! Besides being so "in front of the camera" at AC, he does a lot behind the scenes at ALL of the MN sites! That guy gets the first prize in my book!!!!!

 PS  Rene ain't far behind either with his podcast work!!!!!

One thing worth mention is that I don't think all of the awards should be only for old timers. It seems usually with member profile blog posts,etc its always the guys that have been around for years...not always the currently most relevant people. Perhaps one or more of the awards would be for up and coming members that have been showing promise more recently, rather than just the "all time" amount of contribution.

Look at James go. Back a couple of days and already getting down to it. Good stuff!!
This is a great idea, can't wait to see the categories.

I used to be so active on the forums until my mind changed. I got to start getting more active and I can really be a big help as I'm persistent with any efforts to best help and provide advice. :)
