    New Top Contributor Program - Announcing Our 1st TC

    Today is our 3 month anniversary, so we just added 3 new member recognition programs to acknowledge those who support our community. This really is YOUR community and YOU guys make it work!

    Announcing Our new Top Contributor program

    Without further ado our very 1st Top Contributor is... drum roll...

    Colan Nielsen



    Colan, by far, has the MOST posts, as you'll see in the new Local LEADERBOARD (LINK).
    But you can't get to Top Contributor status at the Local Search Forum by post count alone.
    He was also selected due to the quality of information he shares AND his helpful attitude!

    Thanks COLAN for all you do to help fellow members of the Local Search Community!

    As the community grows we'll be adding more Top Contributors. So if any of you are interested in being a Top Contributor here are a few criteria we’ll be looking at; Post count, # of new threads started, # of thanks and reputation stats. (Based in part on stats from the new Local LEADERBOARD.) (ADD LINK) But more than anything, we'll be looking at your knowledge of Local Search, willingness to help the community and share industry news or helpful tips.

    Who will our NEXT Top Contributor be???

    Thank you all for being a valued part of our community!
    We look forward to adding more Top Contributors very soon!!!

    And congrats again to our new TC, Colan!

    P.S. See announcements about other new Member Perks we just launched today:
    The Local LEADERBOARD (announcing our top 12 members) and Member Reputation Bump.

    P.P.S. I thought long and hard about the name. Didn’t want to sound like I was copying the Google Business Forum, but just could not come up with an appropriate name. "Top poster" doesn't get it, "most helpful member", does not do the title justice. It's really overall 'contribution' to the community, so there really was no other option as fitting.

    SPECIAL THANKS TO DAVID - My right hand man & tech genius, for adding all these cool new features (and satisfying my every request) - to help make this a better place for all!

    I really do love local search, so I'm in my element when I can share and learn with other local lovers and business owners alike.

    Can't wait to see who the NEXT TC will be
