As everybody knows it's IBM Champion season again. Throughout the last year I had the privilege to participate again in the IBM Champions Program. For this I am very grateful. The IBM Champions Program is an amazing program! My nominations for IBM Champion ICS 2018 are nearing completion. With these nominations I want to thank those who have made a significant contribution in my perception to the community during the past year.

I am very committed to our community and try, as good as I can, to contribute to the community through visible activities as blog posts, tweets, running an international community and being a moderator in several communities. Over the past year I noticed several small and major changes in our IBM Domino and XPages community. Some of these changes were reflected in longstanding activities such as the great free XPages webinars from T.L.C.C. and Teamstudio and the outstanding NotesIn9 shows which both were limited to 3 webinars - shows this year. Over the past years these were the starting points for new developments, tips and tricks and learning moments for many in our IBM Domino and XPages community. Until now there are no substitutes or replacements for these great longstanding activities. Also some great and very active community members left the IBM Domino and XPages community over the past year, like Mark Roden, one of the great influencers in the IBM Notes Domino and XPages community. In addition to the above changes there were many more changes which I will not further elaborate in this blog post considering these changes are out of the scope of this blog post, namely the nomination of the IBM Champions 2018.
Overall, in my humble opinion, the 'visible' activity was a lot less this year in comparison with the past few years in our community. A major reason for this may be that 'visible' activities, such as blog posts, tweets and videos, are moving more and more towards speaker activities during major community events, such as Engage and Social Connections.
There were also many positive developments and some community members have clearly put themselves in the forefront this year given their contributions to the IBM Notes Domino and XPages community. For me personally, given the above, it was not as easy as during the last few years to come to a selection of community members I would like to nominate for IBM Champion ICS 2018. But in the end I did.


Who should be nominated as an IBM Champion?
Well, below are the detailed criteria, but maybe what would help are some examples of people who might be IBM Champions: The person in your company who knows everything there is to know about your IBM software or hardware and makes it all work together and is always the one answering everyone’s questions. The person writing articles or books about IBM technology. The person with a blog who investigates and covers IBM technology. The person who runs the local meetup or user group covering IBM technology. The person whose Twitter stream is always sharing what they’re building with IBM technology. The person making YouTube videos about developing with IBM technology. The person who has a couple of sessions every year at IBM and user group conferences and events. Those are all people who might be IBM Champions.
The IBM Champion program requires IBM advocacy and influence outside one's own organization or customer engagements.  IBM also seek individuals that have significant contributions in at least 2-3 areas as defined below (significant contributions = a contribution, executed multiple times or for an extended period of time).
This can be blogging regularly, tweeting regularly (on topics relevant to our industry, but not necessarily IBM-specific tweets), speaking at multiple events in a calendar year, User Group Conference Planning Committee member (involves the execution of a conference or a part of the conference over a period of several months) or be a President or Board member of a worldwide or local user group for a period of 1 year.

Take the opportunity to nominate an influencer of IBM Social Business now. Nominations for the 2018 IBM Champion program will be accepted through November 13. Say thank you, like I did, and Nominate an IBM Champion!
And remember, you can always nominate yourself!
If you need information about someone you want to nominate then take a look at his or her LinkedIn profile. Concerning the nomination form, the form has been improved this year, just fill in what you know and submit the form!
Hopefully this blog post gives some inspiration to submit a IBM Champion nomination if you have not already done so. Why, because they deserve it!

If you think, based on the above,  that you would like to be nominated as IBM Champion please contact me. Let me know what you contributed to the community last year and I will fill out a nomination form. If you would like to nominate me as IBM Champion ICS for 2018, I would highly appreciate it.

Quick Tip: Read Text File - Compare View Values - Send Email Using LotusScript

Update Readers and Authors Fields Using LotusScript - Adding New Values
Tue, Nov 14th 2017 6:31a   Johnny Oldenburger
During the past months I have worked a lot with LotusScript. One of the questions I came accross was how to add a value to a Readers or Authors field in the UI document using LotusScript. First a little background information. In daily practice, I make extensive use of Userroles in the Access Control List which are assigned to specific User Groups in the Access Control List. Based on these Userroles document access is granted based on these Userroles in the Authors and Readers Fields in the spec

The period for the nominations for IBM Champion has been extended until 30 November! This is great news. The extension offers everyone the opportunity to submit their nominations for which the original deadline was too short. For me, this means that I can submit two more nominations for which I had no time left. Just great! Thanks for this opportunity. Read the blog post by Libby Ingrassia for more information.

This week is the final week to nominate, among others, an IBM Champion for IBM Collaboration Solutions (ICS).

Comparing, Replacing and Restoring Design Elements with Local History using the Text Compare Editor in Domino Designer
Thu, Nov 9th 2017 10:37a   Johnny Oldenburger
Last week something went completely wrong with some resources (design elements) in a modified design of an XPages application. Luckily Domino Designer has a very powerful feature, Local History. A standard Eclipse functionality of extremely great value. By using the Compare, Replace and Restore Resources functions with Local History using the Text Compare Editor the problems were quickly resolved.
