As with most help sites we here are Linux.com are working to build a knowledgeable active community of Linux enthusiasts and Technical Professionals alike, not only to assist others but to also showcase their skills to inspire others and advance their individual careers.
This site has a cool feature that allows us to choose members who's original contributions and many question responses have added value to the Linux and FOSS community. The list of featured members can be viewed by going to http://www.linux.com/community and clicking the "Featured Members" link at the top of the Members section.
The Featured members are not chosen by the quantity of contributions or guru points earned, but by the overall quality of their responses and contributions to the site. All featured members have shown the willingness to take ownership of new inquiries and work their best to assist the requesters until their questions are answered.
Please join me in thanking them for their efforts and time they volunteered to assist others.
