Hi Greg,

It would be a real travesty of justice if Microsoft didn't reawrd you MVP. And I totally agree with the others about the title not being worth anything if they did so. Good luck and I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

Thanks everybody! I just hope MS still appreciates Win7 as much as we do.

Yes Bill it feels like a job I have been dreading, would be intolerable if friends here wouldn't have helped the Social Awkward get it set up. Now WTF do I do with it?

What I enjoy doing is answering posts in threads. The rest is jumping through hoops.

Bill,
If you start singing I am going to pack up Donna and leave the State!

Greg,
If I were you, and I am not, I would just continue doing what you love to do and that is helping others. If MS can't see that then all the reports and hoops you are trying to jump through aren't worth the pile of beans that they are full of.

The awards and $5.00 might get you a cup of brew at Starbucks. The real satisfaction comes when you have resolved and helped an OP and he says thank you for a job well done.

I've been there and done that in the Pharmaceutical, Mortgage Banking and Dept of Corrections jobs where I have gone above and beyond the job descriptions with little or no acknowledgement from the higher ups. It was when the nurse, doctor, the borrower, or a guard said thanks for all you help is what made the day worth all the effort that went into it.

Just don't want you not to lose any sleep over it and thank you for all you have done for all of us.

Thanks, Dennis. That's what this thread today has helped me realize.

But more importantly, thank you and Donna for your service as vets!

Greg,
My pleasure.
Donna and I served during the Vietnam War and my son served during Desert Storm.
Our reward was serving our country to have the freedoms we have today and getting home alive. "Some gave all!"

+2 Thanks for your service my friend.

Greg, I suspect that starting the social thing, and getting it going a bit, then an occasional update should suffice. I cannot fathom MS not recognizing you actually toiling in the trenches. I also believe Windows 7 will continue to be the majority OS for quite some time, and it will be vital to have good help as well.

Lets face it, if you ain't re-awarded then they've lost the plot with what an MVP is all about and it ain't worth having.
Ditto. After years of searching for answers on the net anyone can easily realize that the work MVPs provide can be trusted, very helpful for the user as well as MS.

I know the MS business model is going through some dramatic changes, but if they turn this program into another arm of the advertising department folks will eventually realize it, learning they can't trust an MVP's advice much more than any of the other crap out there on the net.

If w7 is neglected MS won't have near as much to stand on when it comes to garnering public support for their next real OS.
