Top Contributors Awards!! Team Foundation Server 2012, Dynamics CRM 2011, Windows 7 tips, AD RMS and still more Guru juiciness!! Slurp!

Welcome back for another analysis of contributions to TechNet Wiki over the last week.

First up, the weekly leader board snapshot…


A new personal best for Maheshkumar! Just short of a thousand revisions, as you'll see below!

Mostly language tags, but some other thoughtful work too. Great performance Maheshkumar.

Also, nice to see Ed, Naomi and Benoit all in the top five. Great work folks.

Special mention also to Benoit for topping the most articles chart for the last month!


As always, here are the results of another weekly crawl over the updated articles feed.

 Most Updated Article Award  
Largest amount of updated content in a single article


The article to have the most change this week was new arrival and wonderful addition to the French community pages : Team Foundation Server 2013 – Vue d'ensemble et concepts sur l'outil.(fr-FR) by Hezequias

This is a great read for Team Foundation Server 2012 fans.. Note also the tag. Thanks Hezequias.


 Longest Article Award  
Biggest article updated this week


This week's largest document to get some attention is an oldie but goodie : Available Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Plugin Messages by Jamie Miley.

It's thanks to Maheshkumar S Tiwari's obsessive tag work that he's dug this one up for attention. 

I remember this article from before, because of the cut off column. Someone really should try to fix that…


 Most Revised Article Award  
Article with the most revisions in a week


This week's most fiddled with article is another new arrival How to Rename a Windows 7 User Account and Related Profile Folder by TNJMAN.

28 revisions, mostly his own, as he buffed this to perfection, but also tweaks from Richard Mueller, Naomi  N and Maheshkumar S Tiwari  


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


Ignoring the addition of tags, this week's smallest but most valuable tweak is to How AD RMS Works by Jim Groves.

It was by Santi Fernandez Muñoz, who realised it was missing the Other Languages section

Cross linking articles like this is very important to us, and if you spot any such missing translation likes, please be sure to add them, in the appropriately formatted way shown above.


 Most Popular Article Award  
Collaboration is the name of the game!


The article to be updated by the most people this week is for the THIRD week running, is TechNet Guru Contributions for September 2013 by me!

As the month draws to an end, we saw a rash of new contributions from NINE people

Thank you everyone for contributing some outstanding work yet again!


Another outstanding performance by ninja Maheshkumar. If you see any added value you can add to articles as you go through them that would be great too. Extra sections, suggestions for missing content, and especially "see also"s. We like to try and link everything to something if we can, so readers can browse further for related articles.




One last article I'd like to mention is Top Contributors of Week:Records.

A great collection of stats, thank you for doing this Maheshkumar, a great idea!




Yet another record number of revised articles this week!
Luckily I've had time to make some urgent adjustments to the crawler and it all worked this week!


Best regards,
Pete Laker

  1. Excellent work by the top contributors this week.

  2. Hezequias Vasconcelos says:

    Hello XAML and Community.

    Thanks for the info. French community is special and will grow even more.

    This work is shared and Bernoit also does a great job.

  3. Naomi N says:

    7 seems to be not bold

  4. Glad to see that the crawler survived Maheskumar's work ! 🙂

    Thanks for the mention, I've mostly done translations this month, as they are so many good existing articles on SharePoint !!

    Great job Hezequias, Nice article ! 😉

  5. Great work this week everyone. Loving the action in the French community 🙂

  6. Maheshkumar, you almost broke 1K?

    Are you making sure you add the "en-US" tag to the English articles? We need to make sure we get all the English articles in the stats we're looking at. Thanks!

  7. Hi Ed,

    Its not just "en-us" tag , there are other tags also missing on articles ,which are present in article but no tag like "has code,has image,has comment,has see also, has reference,has toc, link collection etc…"  and those  are a year(also couple of year older) articles.

    Apart from adding tags(which I see is important-there are many great articles which might have not found because of missing tags ) , I do edit  when it seems incorrect(spelling corrections,grammar corrections etc) and add See also section along with horizontal row wherever required.

    Articles which are spam "Candidate for deletion" is added and about which I am not sure I add "For review" so that community council can take look at that.

  8. Thanks for doing that, Mahesh!

  9. congratulations for the good job you have done.
