VMTN Community Hero Program Launch

Starting TODAY, VMTN is making it a mission to pay homage to customers who are committed to making the community the well-oiled support and conversation machine that it is. These users will be awarded as Community Heroes. These unsung heroes devote their time and expertise to providing support to other community members, they are high point earners due to their answers being marked as correct or helpful frequently, and often share their contributions over social media.

Community Heroes will be selected through a nomination process (nominate someone!) bi-weekly. The following is the timeline the contest will routinely bi-weekly, starting today:

  • Monday Feb 13th: An announcement is made to internal VMware stakeholders and an alert is made on VMTN that nominations are open, as well as on social media
  • Friday Feb 17th: Nominations are closed
  • Monday 20th: Community Hero is selected
  • Tuesday 21st: Community Hero is contacted
  • Friday 24th: Announcement is made and awards are given through the VMTN blog and social media

You cannot self-nominate. To nominate a user:

  • Private message @KTbradley (community manager) on VMTN
  • Include the following information on your nominee:
    • VMTN handle
    • 2-3 examples from VMTN that show your nominees’ contributions
    • Any other community activity (VMUG, CloudCred, vExpert, {code}, blogs, social) that you feel capture their commitment to community
    • When nominating a user, please specify whether or not you’d like the nomination to be anonymous
  • Nominees with a history on VMTN will not be favored – this is a bi-weekly prize and judgements will be made around recent activity.
  • Moderators and VMware Employees can be nominated and elected.

Community Heroes will be awarded with the following:

  • A surprise VMTN gift will be shipped to their home
  • A blog post will be published on the VMTN blog around their community contributions and promoted over VMTN and VMware social channels
  • A Community Hero badge will be added to their profile permanently
  • The Community Hero is awarded the opportunity to make the first and most favorable nomination for the next election

Reflect on your recent interactions on VMTN. Think back to a time when you needed support and a community member was there to provide it. Remember relationships that began on this platform.

Then, head to VMTN to send your nominations to @KTbradley.
