Evgeny was too modest to mention that he excluded himself from the awards on the basis that it's sort of his job to make lots of contributions to DC. The raw data shows just how prolific he is in doing that.

A minor quirk in the table is that "DC Expert 2017 - 4th-10th places" only lists 6 names rather than the expected 7. But looking at the raw data I see that 2 authors tied for the position below Rubens Silva. So I guess either they both get the badge or neither does.
