Public service announcement:
The MVP nominations are open from now until February 5th, 2018.
NOTE: This is now an annual rather than Bi-annual process. Source
New MVP classes will be welcomed once per year, and anyone can nominate an MVP during the once-yearly nomination period.
Feel free to nominate those who have made an exceptional contribution to the SFSE community. That could be users or moderators or anyone else who has helped you on your way.
