January 2018 Community Content Awards Edited

It’s awards season, everybody! This January was one for the books in terms of both the high volume and quality of content created by members of this community, for members of this community. We hit some record high traffic and engagement metrics and wanted to acknowledge and honor the folks who helped us hit those marks. 
Below, you can find the list of our January winners matched with their special awards. To make things fair, we have two categories: Champion and Rising Star. The Champion category is meant to honor our tried and true contributors who are part of the official Champion program. (If you’re interested in becoming an Atlassian Champion or in learning more about the program, click here). The Rising Star category is meant to identify and encourage the up-and-comers keep the participation coming.

Such an awesome group of humans — thanks again for all that you do! 😊

This is fantastic!  Thanks for all this! :)

@Billy Poggi, see, all those exclamation points are part of the reason you won the Boundless Positivity Award! 😃

You are all great and I'm glad you like the names, @Carolyn French -- I came up with some!

@Billy PoggiI am not surprised you received the Boundless Positivity Award, it is exactly what I feel everytime I attend our NOVA AUG! Congrats Billy!

My youngest daughter says she wants a fluffy unicorn award too...

Congrats to all the winners, and everyone else who contributes to this community of awesomeness!

No chance I'll ever get a positivity award, I'm told my cynicism runs deep.  And I have this dreadful pain in all the diodes down my left side.  Or "loyalist".  I signed in around 2004, and haven't left.

Seriously though, well done everyone who got named.  You've all encouraged people to engage more, come up with some innovative and clever answers, taught other "experts" new things (ok, that might be just me learning from you, and then stealing all your answerz, but I'd like to think we learn from each other), and, most importantly, helped people.

Now, about that "most referred to penguins/kittens" category?

Brien Matthys Community Champion Feb 14, 2018

Congrats and thank you!
