Council Spotlight – TechNet Wiki Featured Articles


Welcome to our Thursday Council Spotlight, where you can see the various projects that the council has been up to!

 

Today's post is about:

TechNet Wiki: Featured Article Teams

 

Overview

We have one team for each version of the Wiki. Each team exists to update the featured articles on the home page of that language-based version of TechNet Wiki. Because this takes a unique and passionate personality, the team will change regularly. The appointed Team Captain (one per language) will work with the Community Council member assigned to this Area. They will make sure there are at least 4 members of their team (4-10, per language), and a current Captain is designated each month. 

To Join a Team

Just leave a comment on this blog post or on the article.  

Team Responsibilities

The team will sync for the specific periods (for example, the English team will pick two articles each week). The team captain will submit the articles to the Wiki Community Council to feature them. So the real responsibility is communication as a team and recommendations/voting for what should be featured each time. (For example, Russian is four new articles each month.) As we get more contributions for each language, the cadence will increase accordingly. 

 

English Featured Article Team

Current period length: One-week periods. Two new articles each week.
