Announcing our October Early Warning Signal (EWS) Apprentice (Part 1 of 2)

Hello SEA MVPs,

 

It’s not every day that records are broken. Just when we thought we had achieved our highest number with 14 EWSes submitted in September, our EWS Apprentices had achieved another milestone, producing yet another record-breaking 24 EWSes this month! SEA MVPs had stood out above the rest!

 

Many may be asking ‘How did we manage to achieve this? What is our winning formula?’ Well, the answer is simple. We believed that each and every SEA MVP can make a difference to make our team of EWS Apprentices better. Each EWS submitted by our EWS Apprentices counts in helping Microsoft to identify key problems, discussions, or trends stirring within the community of which we may not be aware of.

 

A big ‘THANK YOU’ to 12 of our SEA MVPs this month for making this difference! Thank you for doing your part and making us shine. Another noteworthy accomplishment was that we had an astounding number of new EWS contenders this month – a total of 9 new EWS contenders! Never did we have so many new EWS contenders in a single month. Here are these new warriors –  Ridi Ferdiana, Elczar Pelarta Adame, Wei Min Chan, Michael Sync, Pom Figueroa, Vincent Maverick Durano, PPG Dinesh Asanka, John Patrick Oliveros and Sainath Sathya. And not to forget to mention our long-time EWS apprentices Ming Man Chan, Jeffery Tay and Chandana Nilanka Athauda.

 

So, as we basked in the glory and enjoyed the limelight, don’t let complacency seeps in. Keep the good works in effect, because you all are definitely making a difference. Step up to this challenge and join our record-breaking SEA MVPs in the month of November and submit your ‘first’ or ‘next’ EWS if you have not done so!

More about EWS:

Early Warning Signal (EWS) function gives MVPs the ability to ALERT and send Microsoft about potentially broad, hot, high impact, negative customer experiences or any new issues that they see in technical communities. To report a new issue, use the EWS submission form. All new EWS submissions are reviewed by Microsoft within 5 business days, and you will receive a response with outlining actions planned relevant to your submission. You can also view EWS submissions from other MVPs and vote on them.

 

If you need any assistance on filing an EWS or if you have any queries on the above, please feel free to approach Windy Teo or Lilian Quek  for further assistance. For a glimpse as to who are our current TOP EWS Apprentice up to date, check out the ‘EWS Hall of Fame’ on Part 2 of this blog article.

PS: EWS can be considered as one of MVP’s great contribution to the technical communities and filed in the MVP Member site. This will be used for MVP’s evaluation when a MVP’s award cycle is due for renewal.
