Since the most recent SCN Topic Leader contest came to a close on July 31, the SCN team has been enthusiastically working in the background to bring you the list of winners. For those of you who are new to the community: the SCN Topic Leader contest is a way of highlighting the most active experts in certain topics in the community.

To find out more about the 2014-2015 contest and its rules, check out this blog post by caroleigh.deneen: Updates to SCN Topic Leader Contest | SCN.

As Caroleigh explains in that post, the first criterion for winner selection is that you be one of the top three members in a topic space in terms of points earned in that space during the 12 months of the contest period (in this case, August 1, 2014 through July 31, 2015).

Like last year, we included a point threshold as one of the criteria as well: this year the threshold is 480 points. And as was the case in the past, we applied this criterion to select active and meaningful areas of expertise—certain areas such as Getting Started or Events are not included.

It’s All About Recognition

What do the winners of this contest earn? Topic Leaders will receive an Acknowledgement of Achievement per e-mail (please be patient, it will still take some time to get those out). And of course, there will be a nice badge to post in your Me-in-3 selection on SCN!

If you are listed below as a Topic Leader, and you will be coming to SAP TechEd in Las Vegas or Barcelona (this year’s remaining venues), we would like to hear about it, as we plan to give you the opportunity to meet some folks like SAP Mentors there. Note that, unfortunately, we cannot give Topic Leaders a free pass to SAP TechEd. (We have not done that in the past either.)

A Final Word Before We Get to the List

A lot of hard work goes on in the background to prepare this list, and I want to give a shout-out to a few folks who deserve it here. Bunchball and SAP IT had a hand in providing us with the report we needed to start with, and caroleigh.deneen and sajid.amir2 were instrumental in moving the vetting process along. All of this under the unwavering support and guidance of jeanne.carboni.

And of course, we could not have finalized the list without the SCN Moderators and Space Editors, who gave their time to help review it.

Thank you to all of you, and to other SAP employees who work unwaveringly to support this community. We could not run it without you!

And now… Join me (and bill.mcdermott)  in congratulating our winners, the 2014-2015 SCN Topic Leaders!

I think this space doesn't come under the selection criteria.

Minimum 480 points and period Aug 2014 to July 2015.

Thanks Dibyendu, that might be a reason but I'm not sure how it is possible to check that.

It seems the current space leader, Daniel Paulsen, reaches 490 points in the last 12 month on his own. :smile:

Today you can see the calculation for the period 1st Oct 2014 to 30th Sept 2015. We can't see/check the back calculation.

Lets call caroleigh.deneen to investigate more on this.

Hi Everyone,

It has come to our attention that the RESTful Web Services SDK space was mistakenly left off the Topic Leader list. The point report provided to identify the winners left out a space. :sad: We have now examined the leaders for the contest period in that space, and it turns out that we have a winner there (he is in the top 3 and meets the point threshold)! :grin:

So, without ado, let me extend our congratulations to this new Topic Leader: daniel.paulsen! I have added Daniel to the Topic Leader list above, as well.

I want to apologize to Daniel and to the community, on behalf of our team, for not catching this report mistake sooner. Once we received word that another Topic Leader may have been missed, our team conducted a full audit of the point report provided. While we did find some other spaces that had been left off of the report as well, none of them had members who met the point threshold for the contest. We feel confident that no other deserving winners have been erroneously passed over. We are now investigating the cause of the omission, in order to avoid similar issues in the future.

Regards,

Audrey
