Oracle Ace, or Oracle Dunce…err, I mean Deuce.

Oracle Ace or Oracle Dunce?

For quite some time the “about” section of my blog stated that I am an Oracle Ace. Well, I was getting pelted with email from people that got the scoop on the fact that I am not an Oracle Ace. I was an Oracle Ace. Moreover, I was actually an Oracle Ace who wasn’t self-nominated! But, no matter, I am no longer an Oracle Ace and I have updated my blog accordingly.


Oracle employees are not eligible for participation in the Oracle Ace program. So the Oracle Ace-dom that I had prior to joining Oracle was revoked. I still have the vest though!

    Well, you’re an “Employee” Oracle ACE. That counts!

    The value of what your contribution to the Oracle user community is not diminished in any way just because of a technicality on ACE eligibility. You keep doing what you’re doing…and many of us will continue to be just as grateful to you for doing it.

    Hi sir,
    surely eough you are an ACE. A logo doesn’t matter at all for you! Just a thought, when you leave Oracle (if you leave) than will you get back the ACE title again?

    Hi sir,
    LOL! Yup, that’s also a valid point!
