It takes a lot of years worth of hard work and selfless volunteering on sites like this (and others) in order to receive an MVP award. It's something that all of us are very proud of, and don't take for granted. It's not a prize to be won. You cannot nominate yourself. You are nominated by current MVPs, and your contributions over the preceding year are measured against current MVPs by the Microsoft staff.

If you're interested in attaining something like this one day, why not consider joining GeekU.

I was active in these types of forums for over three years before I became an MVP.

Yes, you can join GeekU at 17. We've had Experts in the past who were even younger than you. Age has nothing to do with your ability to work on Malware. :)

It's only for a year that you have the award, then you have to stop presenting yourself as a MVP according to Micro$oft's policy:

Q7: How long does the Microsoft MVP Award last?

A7: The MVP Award lasts for the duration of one year. During this time, MVP Award recipients are free to refer to themselves as Microsoft MVPs and to enjoy all of the privileges that are included with the award.

You are correct that the award is for one year at a time. However, many people are re-awarded every year on their award date. The award dates are Jan 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct 1. :)

Very small indeed, about 5/100000ths of 1% or .00005% of the world pop.
They are an elite group of people and we are lucky to have so many of them here willing to teach us.
