As the THWACK® community manager, I have the honor and privilege of recognizing a handful of people from the 180,000-member community we call THWACK. Members of this prestigious list span the globe, cross numerous business and government sectors, and have hundreds (if not thousands) of combined years in the industry. These MVPs exemplify what THWACK is about: sharing knowledge. Without further ado, please join me in congratulating this year’s class of THWACK MVPs.
What does it take to be considered for next year’s class? In one word, INVOLVEMENT. I fully understand I might be one of the few people who gets a paycheck to be on THWACK all day, every day; but finding some time throughout your day to answer questions on your favorite forum, sharing something in the Content Exchange, or contributing in other ways are great ways to get started. Take part in user experience research, help with beta testing, or join us at one of our upcoming SolarWinds User Group™ meetings. There are no other barriers to entry. Remember, THWACK is a community by IT professionals for IT professionals— SolarWinds just pays to keep the lights on.
Your bid for inclusion in the 2023 class starts now, so get involved! Let your voice be heard and share your thoughts and ideas. Become more involved in the community, and maybe your name will be included on next year’s roster.
To everyone on this list, congratulations! I’m looking forward to working with you and the 180,000 other members throughout the year. Thank you to the new and returning THWACK MVPs and all the THWACKsters for making THWACK the best community in IT.
