Here at XDA, we want to make sure the most contributive and skilled developers get the recognition they deserve, which is why we have the Recognized Developer program to which any developer can apply. Being a part of the program gives you advantages like a faster, ad-free forum template, a custom title, basic moderation privelages, and more. On November 22, we mistakenly added a small batch of Recognized Developer due to a clerical error. These particular developers were waiting in the queue to be evaluated, and had not yet been looked at. As such, we’ve removed the Recognized Developer status from that particular group until our Developer Committee can properly process them. If you see one of your favorite developers with their Recognized Developer status suddenly removed, it’s likely because of this error. We’re sorry for any trouble this might have caused, and we can assure you that it won’t happen again._________
