Look into showing all Distinguished Experts for all topics in the next years awards. Exclusion of some topics leave Experts wondering how they did. Additionally look into custom date range support for Member Rank results.
The Top Expert/Hall of Fame component is coming back to the question page.
We are adding recognition of award winners to profiles right now and will be adding them so they display near your avatar in your comments on site. We should additionally look into giving better ways to display your awards off site.
Previous winners of some of the retired awards don't know what they need to do now for recognition.
The descriptions of the awards are too vague for some, even though they are still predominantly based on points and we are only excluding people for extreme behavior and not responding to moderation attempts.
From what has been posted, I need more views of stuff in my TA. As an Expert, I cannot control that. Well, I suppose I could write a bot that views every question and article daily.....
Another area that might need recognition are the experts who do other tasks that don't garner them points. Clean-up, article editors, etc.
With the improvements you have already made, I think you (the collective you as in the EE development team) are finally listening to us (the experts/volunteers) and at least considering our inputs important and relevant.
but treating everyone very poorly and not representative of the award by doing a subjective gut check at the end of the year
These are this quarter's top performing experts in the fifty most active topics.
Most active topics are the topics with the most points earned and most page views for the specified time frame.
