in our this months newsletter i saw that "essential" became a featured poster as well as a featured coder. if i compare number of his posts or reputation points or solved threads, i think Ramy or Scott(sknake) must be granted these before than him.
I think the problem is, neither Dani nor HappyGeek had some c# experience and these guys mostly post on c# forum. So basically they are not realized by the administrators.
I dont know but this is not fair, and this will demotivate our valuable posters(i dont include myself at this point as i still cant keep my promise about Narue, my disease will be cured hopefully)
And other thing, i PM both Dani and HappyGeek to have mark as solved enforcement right to mark some threads as solved if i am hundred percent sure that they are solved like in msdn forums. none of them even replied back.
