The month of April was not a very exciting for me. Consistent server issues from our previous provider, we had to urgently search for a new home
. Overnight we had 27 offers on the table and finally we picked the one from HandsOnWebHosting.com, a company run by Conor, the first winner of the Most Valuable Member of the Month contest and our Community Advisor today.
In light of this, until we had a reliable server, I had to postpone the announcement of last month's contest winner. After all, we had one of the most busiest months and going through hundreds of posts generated by our Top 10 ranked members would have proven to be a real pain considering a very slow page load time.
Regardless, as I mentioned we had a very busy month and it took me 2 days to go through each post and make the decision.
Again, we had some really good competitive spirit, lots of cool posts, new names that really had some great posts from the likes of Zachary McClung from the Web Host Boot Camp 2009 virtual conference, who paid a nice visit.
Now to the winner! If you are around on a regular basis, it is hard not to notice this member. Already a winner once, he remains active almost on a daily basis with an unbelievably friendly attitude and great advice to anyone who needs it. It is hard not to agree that Steve-Hostirian
's well written guides and discussions almost always spark active debate and conversation about the issues he raises. Apart from his own threads that he starts, Steve continues to cover ground in many different forums providing his views and opinions. For this reason, Steve from Hostirian.com becomes the Most Valuable Member of the Month winner for the month of April 2009. Steve (Hostirian.com) will be awarded this time with 10,000 impressions in our 125x125 banner position on HostingDiscussion.com. The winner will be contacted in private.
(from CSN-UK.net) receives an honorable mention for last month's activity. To most he might appear a relatively quiet member. But when he comes up with advice, he makes sure he gives the best advice possible. Most of his suggestions and posts are throughout and backed by solid experience. Our UK-based friend is definitely on the radar now!
Congrats to all Top 10 who made it this month!
