Thank you for your contributions — we are so glad to have you!


The Unexpected Win

This acknowledgement allows us to highlight the actions of a member whose contributions this month created a win for everyone involved.


This month, we’re featuring @Network-dad, who had a great week at ECMS2 and even learned something that helped out @amarquez2: a great way to streamline importing ASA configs to your MX.

Wow @NolanHerring . Amazing effort there bud! Beating even @PhilipDAth 's bot (just kidding, gratz as always mate). @jdsilva I guess it was snowing kudos for you, gratz ❄️❄️.


@CBurkhead , well deserved, I saw great posts from you!


@Network-dad congrats on the new badge! And on your ECMS2!


@BlakeRichardson and @Nash , I thought I wasn't going to make it. I think it was a close call. Great jobs from you guys too!


Kind of a big deal

@BrechtSchamp, I spent ECMS2 hanging out with @Network-dad and absolutely ignored the forums last week... I was so tired. 🤣 Bugging him into hanging around more was just exhausting.


Congratulations, everyone!

Kind of a big deal

Congrats @BrechtSchamp @NolanHerring @jdsilva @PhilipDAth for MOTM and always providing support for the community. @CBurkhead for the Rising 

@Network-dad whom I personally met and is a great dude. Good job everyone.

Finally got a chance to get back on the forum today and this is so amazing!  I'm so glad to help out and thank you, everyone. It was so cool to meet @kYutobi @Nash and look forward to helping build this wonderful community!

I had no idea that I had made that many posts! Congratulations to the other winners. Hopefully, I can continue to help other members of the forum.
Kind of a big deal
