Hi All - we are very excited to announce our Super User program. Super Users make our community lively and engaging. This program provides a formal structure to recognize and reward our Super Users.

 

Here is the full program description. To join the program, send an email to social@infoblox.com.

 

Introduction

Infoblox has a vibrant community that discusses various topics related to network and security.  We are excited to announce a formal program to recognize and reward our Super Users.

 

Who can Participate? How to Join?

Super Users are consistent, knowledgeable and excited to engage within the Infoblox Experts Community. They answer questions, initiate discussions, and weigh-in on replies. They also have a futuristic perspective and are interested in learning and sharing in the community. These are Community Heroes.

 

The opportunity to participate in the program is offered to everyone.

  • Anyone in the Infoblox Experts Community (Infoblox employees and employees of Infoblox customers and partners) can apply to be a Super User by sending an email to social@infoblox.com. There is no cost to join the Super User program.
  • The Infoblox Community Team will track their engagement in the community to ensure they get the benefits of being in the program as they achieve certain levels.

 

What will Supers Users need to do?

  • Identify and subscribe to discussion forums. We encourage each participant to choose at least one discussion forum and subscribe to notifications.
  • Answer questions as they arrive preferably the same day. This will ensure an active dialog between community members and Super Users.
  • Weigh-in on others’ answers. Give perspective or identify other possibilities.
  • Share best practices in a technical article as part of the Contributor program (details below). Contributions can range from how-to articles to best practices.
  • Initiate conversations. Share your observations and ask for opinions of community members.
