Top Contributors – Ed updates Wiki Wiki Articles, Gokan enriches SharePoint 2013 content, and Danny Von Dam makes the list with System Center VMM 2008 R2 goodness

Welcome to our Top Contributors of the Week!

I’m going to be less thorough than Peter Laker usually is, because he’s out on vacation (and because I’m less thorough than he is).

So we’re sticking with the leaderboard lists…

In first place this week is me!

Congratulations, me! Oh, thank you, me! You’re welcome! I’m welcome!

As the title mentions, I’ve been editing Wiki Wiki articles. That’s a confusing way of saying they are Wiki articles mostly about TechNet Wiki! Here they be…


Next, let’s say/write congratulations to Gokan!

Welcome to the top, Danny! This will earn you the White Ninja Belt!

This is what Danny’s been up to, in the world of System Center VMM:

Thanks to Danny for all your contributions!



And here are the contributors with the most articles in the last 30 days!

I don’t have XAML guy’s awesomeness to do all the awards he usually does, but I will do one…


Smallest Significant Edit Award  
Size isn’t everything! Every edit counts.

The award goes to Naomi N, who updated this article: Latest Windows Security Update in July 2013 Breaks the SharePoint XSLT system web part pages.

In that article, Naomi fixed one letter in the article to change ‘has create’ to ‘has created’ instead. See the revision here:



Also, I’m glad to see other familiar faces in this list, like Yagmoth (a Community Council member), Tomoaki (our Japanese leader and MVP), Dplotnikov (a Russian leader), Naomi (a multi-winner of the MCC award and a two-time winner of the T-SQL Guru award), Brent Groom (a Microsoft employee and member of the Community Council), and Paul Turley (a SQL Server MVP and member of the TechNet Wiki Advisory Board).

Thanks to everyone for helping make TechNet Wiki such a great place!

    Congrats to Danny van Dam!

  2. Naomi N says:

    What about minor edit? Say, I fixed one letter in the article to fix 'has create' to 'has created'? I also was on vacation this week but immediately upon returning I started working on the lots of articles. I think you may want to mention articles most edited (say, last night I made about 20+ revisions on 'Suggestions' article and another user worked on translation of that article and made about 60 revisions). So, I hoped to make it this week again (and I was on third place when I checked the leader board at night on Saturday but it changed again soon even though I worked then ~ 4 hours straight from 9:45 till 12:40 am)

    What is What the SCVMM 2008 R2 'Over-committed' Status Really Means ? Looks like double quote doesn't work

  4. Danny van Dam says:

    Thanks Ed!

  5. Yagmoth555 says:

    lol, quite funny your thanks to yourselft 🙂

  6. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Naomi, Peter Laker runs a lot more data than I do, so it helps us appreciate it when he's able to do it!

  7. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Naomi, can you link to the article/revision you mentioned? That seems like a worthy winner of the Minor Edit category for this week!

    Great work Danny! Keep your good job going!

  10. Naomi N says:

    Yes, I think I found that article yesterday at some point, it was a great article about Troubleshooting SharePoint Update problem – I wish articles like that participate in the competition…/18589.latest-windows-security-update-in-july-2013-breaks-the-sharepoint-xslt-system-web-part-pages.aspx

  11. Naomi N says:

    I think it's also worth mentioning a great job done by RH6M6 user to translate my "New Forum Re-Design: Suggestions, Ideas, Impressions" article into Russian. He did about 64 revisions of that article.

    I struggled to keep both articles current and move implemented requests into the appropriate sections in these articles. I also translated my own 'SQL Server Dynamic Pivot on Multiple Columns' into Russian yesterday (on Sunday)

  12. Danny van Dam says:

    Thanks Gokan! You are doing a great job yourself!

  13. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Naomi, that's a good example of a small but important edit:…/compare.aspx

  14. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Naomi, I gave you the "Smallest Significant Edit Award" that will help with the Top Contributors requirements of the belts. Thanks for your contribution!

  15. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Naomi, Julie ended up emailing me, and I added her article to the SharePoint Guru July contributions. So your comment here helped her get submitted! Thanks!

  17. Naomi N says:

    BTW, I now have the Orange Belt. If I get to the next blog, I will be also a Green Belt, right? So, what I will need for the next step?

  18. Naomi N says:

    Hmm, I went to check the Green Belt article and it looks like you found one more blog with my name from January, 2013 (although I am mentioned only in passing at the end). So, if that blog is counted, it means with this one I already got the Green Belt (so I'll update the article) and now should work towards the new belt.

  19. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Naomi, correct! You're now a Green Belt! That was fast. =^)

  20. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    I added Danny to the White belt list here:…/

    Congrats, Danny!

  21. Naomi N says:

    I checked a blog and the article and it seems to be the work of the original author mostly. The article itself seems to be very thorough and well written.

    In the case I am talking about RH6M6 volunteered to help with the translation of the article but wanted me to be the author. So, I created the article in Russian WiKi and then he spent 2 days translating. I think it's a great work.  

  22. Gokan Ozcifci says:

    Thanks Ed for moving me 🙂

  23. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    You're welcome, Gokan! You and Naomi are our two Green Belts right now. =^)
