The renewal date for my MVP status is tomorrow. The email usually arrives at UTC 15:00.
So in less than 19 hours I'll know if I get to keep the MVP status or not.
What renewal dates do you other MVP have?

Mine is tomorrow as well. Last year, I initially got denied my renewal. And they are tightening up the program to make it harder to get/keep.

Fingers crossed!

I haven't been that active online due to kids, remodelling and real stuff at work.
However, I have been presenting a lot last year on several conferences and so. Also did technical editing for a Red-Gate ebook (cowriter is Mladen!) and wrote a chapter for Deep Dives II.
And co-organizing SQL Rally in Sweden in November. I managed to get Itzik here!

As I've noticed. Been out of it for several months due to time constraints. No real motivation to go back though.
