    Heh.. I was a TheHelper.net poster before I became an MVP.

    If you want I can contribute to this somehow, I've only been an MVP for a few years though.

    Info on the current MVP program, and how you became a MVP. Also, about how you found TH.net and maybe some of that story too. It might not be interesting to you but it is interesting to us :)

    I stubbed out the main Tom Mai link on the Story since his stuff is in the stories section. I am going to do my own thing on Tom since I think I know him pretty well posting news together for a number of years now :)

    Added FireCat and Siretu as a Potential Section Stubs with a high probability of being done soon.

    Oh yeah. I showed the MVP-specific part of this to a recently added MVP, Leviathan. He thought it was interesting to read the history of the MVP program even though he never had anything to do with Thehelper.net.

    Anyway I will write up something for this eventually. I will have to check in with the guys at Blizzard to see how many details I'm allowed to spill about the inner-workings of the MVP program currently. :p

    They have a bunch of information about it public I have been doing some research. I will be adding Moar to that section later.

    Let's see if we can invite a few more MVPs and try to finish the research up with even more details, hopefully we get Blizzard's attention and actually get one of the employees to reply here.

    I highly doubt that Tom Mai. We have not had a Blizzard forum lurker in a long time. Last one was our StarEdit mod back on the SitePowerUp forums before we got Vbulletin.

    Since Daskunk said that he's going to check up with Blizzard, he might share this site with them. Who knows? There's a chance!

    As I promised, I deliver.

    Also, I am interested in the kc history and the real reason behind Ace's leaving. You guys really made a mystery out of it...

    No, life cannot wait.

    Life can wait -> No conclusion to the story -> Story incomplete -> :(
