BigBlueBall staff member Doris Kenney—patndoris in the forums–has been officially recognized as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Windows Live Messenger (WLM).
The Microsoft MVP Award is an annual award that recognizes exceptional technology community leaders worldwide who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with users and Microsoft.
Rich Kaplan, VP Customer and Partner Advocacy at Microsoft said “It is with great pride we announce that Doris Kenney has been awarded as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP). All of us at Microsoft recognize and appreciate Doris’s extraordinary contributions and want to take this opportunity to share our appreciation with you.
“As a recipient of this year’s Microsoft MVP award, Doris joins an exceptional group of individuals from around the world who have demonstrated a willingness to reach out, share their technical expertise with others and help individuals maximize their use of technology.”
Of course, we at BigBlueBall are especially proud of this honor, but we are not surprised. Doris has been actively involved in our forums for a long time, sharing her expertise and helping people every day.
GRATZ Doris! Can't think of a more-deserved honor for you. Your work here at BBB most certainly exemplifies exactly what this award states as its purpose. WTG! Guess we'll have to pay for your insight now Ms. Expert! 🙂

I should add that Doris is one of only eight MVPs for WLM. Kudos!

I got a Microsoft MVP Award for signing up for the Outlook Connector beta testing and then doing nothing.
Does that mean I'm super awesome too?
Also, your tag cloud is cutting off half of the OpenID sign-in dialog. Might want to look into that.
Thanks everybody! MVP is quite an honor for sure. But without BBB it wouldn't have been possible. So my thanks goes to everyone here in the BBB community!

Congratulations, Doris! Well deserved. You've been very helpful.
@Majik Fox – No, that means you're a dick.

Congratulations, Doris! You've been helping BBB's members day in and day out, and this recognition is well and truly deserved…”most valuable” just about sums it up!
Great Congratulation Doris Kenney.
