Welcome back to a New Year!

Each year we have a tradition of awarding the members who have worked the hardest, helped the most, and given their all for the community. There are two main categories: those who write articles and those who help in the forums and in Quick Answers. You, our members, vote for these articles, for their answers, you download code that's been posted, bookmark articles and "accept" an answer as the right one. Each small activity adds to the contributors points tally and at the end of the year we have a list of the brightest and the best.

It's with great pleasure that I say congratulations to our Most Valuable Professionals of 2013:
