Super Users in the SAS Support Communities


There are SAS users, and then there are SAS Super Users in the SAS Support Communities.

Super Users in the CommunitiesWhat makes a communities user "Super"? It's the Super Users that fly around the discussion boards -- answering questions and guiding other community members. They aren't just SAS experts; they are teachers as well, helping new users to "learn to fish" and find their own answers.

The SAS Support Communities Super User program recognizes the strongest members for their outstanding contributions. In addition to the public honor of the "Super User" designation, inductees are given tools that help them to expand their community leadership. We hope this helps them get even more out of their community experience. Certainly, their actions help the rest of us in the community as well.

We asked our Super Users what they enjoy most about the communities. Here's some of what they said:

  • "There is a wealth of expertise available for free."
  • "You can participate any time of day or night."
  • "I love when you get an interesting question and multiple people post different answers trying to one-up each other."
  • "It's an opportunity to share. Most of the answers I provide take me very little time to prepare, and I know programmers can struggle as they are learning."

Congratulations to our inaugural group! These 6 outstanding community members will enjoy the official Super User designation for the next 6 months. They are:
