Kudos & Milestones: September 2014

Kudos:

GaryC123 came across a question from colonelblue with his name in it – about assigning sounds to divs – and after solving it, got this thank you: Experts like Gary are why I have stayed subscribed. A credit to your site and service. Thank you!

Staudte was trying to figure out a way to reduce the amount of data transferred when a page is loading, and robert_schutt came to his aid: Perfect solution, exactly understood the problem, precisely explained and documented. THIS IS THE WAY IT SHOULD BE! It should be graded A++ and given triple points… Thank you so much ūüôā

By The Numbers: Several months ago, our good friend DaveBaldwin commented that he thought he had more certificates than anyone else on Experts Exchange. We did a little investigating of our own and found that at the time, he was third overall. Even more recently, with the new Member Search we were able to come up with a newer list, turns out that since Dave asked, he has taken over the top spot.

The top 25 Experts, in order, with certificates in the most topics as of August 31, are: DaveBaldwin, 90; leew, 88; arnold, 85; rindi, 82; thinkpads_user, 70; angelIII, 67; robwill, 66; Ray_Paseur, 63; ve3ofa and giltjr, 62 (tie); nobus, 60; SysExpert, johnb6767 and Merete, 58 (tie); garycase, 56; alanhardisty, 51; leakim971 and MASQUERAID, 50 (tie); Qlemo, 49; Chris-Dent and war1, 48 (tie); and SheharyaarSaahil, Callandor, hanccocka and jason1178, 46 (tie).

New Geniuses: A few familiar names top the members who earned Genius certificates this August. angelIII picked up his 15th, the most ever, in ASP.NET. He also became the first or second (see Milestones below) member to go over 4,000,000 points in four topics, most recently MySQL Server.

leew, who for a very long time led the list of most Certificates (see above), and who is 11th in the Hall of Fame, has earned his seventh Genius certificate in Microsoft Operating Systems. Tintin received his fourth, in Shell Scripting. Earning his second was cgaliher, in Windows Server 2008. First time recipients were gauthampj in C# Programming and mas_oz2003 in NET Programming.

Five Million Point Club: GaryC123 and _agx_ are the newest members of the Five Million Point Club. By reaching that level of points overall, both receive lifetime memberships at Experts Exchange.

My First Million: Reaching 1,000,000 points in August were ivostoykov, kenboonejr, TomasHelgi, and tzucker¬†–¬†Congratulations!
