Based on the nomination of the teams behind Point & Find, Ovi Maps for mobile, and Image Exchange, we'd like to recognize mbrett again as the Beta Labs contributor of the month for November. He's an "excellent contributor" that contributes quality feedback on a regular basis, and does so with a "p
Since we didn't have any major releases in October, the contributor of the month was a difficult choice. In cases like these, we sometimes honor newcomers that contribute a handful of very insightful comments. But for this month we want to recognize a contributor with a steady and strong track record, a constructive approach in his feedback, and an interactive presence. These are all things we appreciate in a beta labs contributor.
For your efforts, navio1973, we'll give you a choice:
The contributor of the month for September 2009 has been selected. Congratulations iivo!
Ovi Lifecasting really appreciates your feedback and as a token of appreciation Beta Labs rewards you with genuine Nokia Kontio rubber boots!

Another month has passed and it's time to once again announce a well distinguished community member. Ovi Suite 2.0 continued to be our most important Beta, so we turned to them for advice. Here's a direct quote from the team of why they chose cricfancy:
"cricfancy has been very active in finding more details about errors in Nokia Ovi Suite and has helped us a lot in improving the product."

July was a quiet month: only a couple updates and one graduation. At first, this made it again difficult to choose a contributor of the month, since we didn't have any beta launches and thus could not ask the teams to nominate best contributors. But, we didn't want to just skip this contributor of the month either. So, the reasons are this time not just based on July's observations.

Once again, ladies and gents, we have selected the winner. And this time, there's no doubt about it. Let me introduce you Nokia Beta Labs Contributor of the Month / March 2009, the man who needs no introduction: mbrett.
During the first 2+ months since he first time logged in, mbrett's forum activity tells the story:
- Reviews written: 9, commented: 24
- Bugreports written: 11, commented: 114
- Suggestions written: 11, commented: 94
Phew. What a month. During February, thousands of people signed in to Beta Labs discussion forums, posting thousands of comments, suggestions, reviews, and bug reports. Despite the fact that we launched only 1 new app (along with a couple of major updates), the website traffic grew about 40%. Thank you all. Seriously. This level of attention and contribution will make things really interesting around here.
