We define a Top Contributor as someone who is passionate, helpful, friendly, and an active user. These members continue to share their profound knowledge by answering questions, starting new threads, and going out of their way to share the benefits of Airtable with their extended networks.  

In January, our Top Contributors offered 84 solutions, started 24 new threads, wrote 356 replies, and received 203 kudos 🔥

What a nice way to highlight the people who participate in this community! Thank you. 

However, I have to ask how your definition of a top contributor (passionate, helpful, friendly) is taken into account in how you identify these contributors? The first several lists (solutions, kudos, replies, posts) a can be generated automatically from statistics with no knowledge of the actual content of the post. I can see how passionate people have more posts. I can see how helpful people have more solutions. I don’t see how these statistics show how friendly someone is. In fact, sometimes unfriendly conversations generate a lot of posts/replies. (Not the case with this list, but anyone who has witnessed a flame war on a forum knows what I mean.)

I don’t have a specific request. I’m just tossing out my thoughts and impressions. Thanks for your patience with me.

Thank you @kuovonne,, these are all great points! As we continue to evaluate future Top Contributors we will be reviewing both quantitative and qualitative data.

Friendliness will fall under how each member up holds the Communities Code of Conduct and Guidelines as they interact with other members of the Airtable Community.

I agree that heated conversations could generate more posts/replies, but we also want to make sure we are keeping it constructive (criticizing ideas, not people). As long as members are being respectful they'll have a great shot at becoming a future Airtable Top Contributor!
