Just noticed that along with "Adobe Employees," "Community Professionals," and "Community Members," there is a new designation - "Community/MVP."
Maybe that has been around for some time, but I just noticed it today.
It is a new designation. Brand new and sparkly!
How does one get it? Microsoft's MVP (Microsoft Valuable Professional) required one to sleep around with another MVP to be recommended for their coveted title so What is the requirement for Adobe's MVP? Is it the same? Or could it be "Most Valuable Pirate" in which case one just have to keep posting new ways to hack Software Products

At least they did not give them the "orange" title text - that would have really rattled some cages.
It's what you might call an unintended sneak peek. We've been working for several months on a better badging solution. The aim is to recognize and distinguish the contributions of our moderators and expert community program members, without turning the forums into an alphabet soup of labels and badges.
We are still testing various solutions and getting feedback from the moderators and various Adobe community programs with a stake in the game.
We hope to roll out the new solution (along with reinstated points, # of posts, and a much spiffier profile design) by the end of the June. Stay tuned, and sorry if we caused any confusion.
Not very original. Microsoft has had the MVP designation for about 15 years. stands Microsoft Valuble Persons. I was offered the position as a MVP. I turned it down. Because I didn't think I was really that qualified, and Your required to come to Redmond a couple of times a Year. Something I am finanically un able to do. Anything that MVP's Turn in as bugs get top billing. And they have access to research tools. I was given the MCC designation instead. which means I know a little bit more than the average bear.
Phillip, you are unfortunately mistaken on a couple of points.Someone else already pointed out the meaning of the initialism.
But the "requirement" to travel to Redmond twice a year that you cited doesn't exist to my knowledge. I know because I was an MVP for several years. And while Microsoft does host an "MVP Summit" each year, you aren't required to attend. It's optional. They were very generous in providing hotel accommodations and meals. So the only real expense you had was just for the airfare and travel to the hotel.
I missed attending many of these and was never dinged as a result.
Claudio, in the Adobe forums, "MVP" stand for "most valuable participant".
The criteria for becoming an MVP is described in a link off of this new page for community-related information:http://forums.adobe.com/community/guidelines
And I'm not getting it in the landing (main?) page of this forum, but in individual threads. Andf I don't get it if I go from the main page to the last post of a discussion if I posted that last message...
Sorry, I had meant that reply to go to Terri. I had no intent to imply that you couldn't find it or it wouldn't work for you, Claudio. I simply clicked reply on the thread with the picture in it after reading to the bottom of the thread, to confirm that Terri's (?) was working as designed. Unfortunately you had quoted her response, including the picture, which threw me off. With the train wreck of a migraine headache I have today I get derailed easily.

It is a new day.
Frankly this latest forum upgrade wasn't painful at all. One or two little glitches, but nothing like prior times where the entire presentation was messed up until one incanted special spells to rid the system of cookie monsters and cache cows.
I do agree. When the little outages ceased, and I cleared the cache, things shaped up. The changes seems to be "eye candy," as I do not detect any speed up, or similar, but there could well be some things that I have not encountered, or even seen, yet.
Scary for a few minutes, when things were ON, then were OFF, then ON... but not too long.
Good luck to us all,
What is the reasoning behind the following display:
Under Top participants you see: Name +++
but under discussions you see the same: Name ++++
What does that difference in ++++++ mean? Are points on a per forum basis for participants but on individual posts on total points?
