How do you conclude that attending Events make contribution better
than what you do?
As an ambassador, I believe your work is great!!! My point is not
having category system in Ambassadors.

Point is to let the world know that ambassadors are reliable person,
one can atleast have a proper information or pointer to informations
from them.

If someone is unable to do even that, (replying to mails, pointing to
wiki or mailing lists)
it will be better not to have them as ambassador.
And this is just happening.

Monthly report was just a suggestion to get the conversation going. It
is not that I insist on that only. If we get some other way which
works, I am fine with that too..
