Recognized Developers of XDA: Update
You might recall that over the last few months, we’ve been collecting information for those wanting to be considered part of the Recognized Developer of XDA group. Those in the group will get extra privileges on in the forums. We had originally planned to process all of the forms by 20 April, but due to the high volume of applicants, it’s going to take us longer.

If you didn’t get a chance to fill out the form and still want to be considered, please send a PM to pulser_G2, who is leading these efforts.
