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


The article to have the most change this week was Windows PowerShell Survival Guide, by tonysoper_MSFT

This week's revisers were Lido Paglia, wlin1, François-Xavier Cat & organic-it

I love this article so much, it is in my bookmarks and I often dip back into it, as time permits.

This really is the ultimate starting page for all things PowerShell related, and still shows its popularity by the fact that new visitors are finding it, loving it and helping to keep it up to date and relevant.

Thank you for this awesome resource Tony and thank YOU the reader, for helping maintain it.


Ninja Award Longest Article Award  
Biggest article updated this week


This week's largest document to get some attention is regular winner but always worth a mention : E-Book Gallery for Microsoft Technologies, by Monica Rush

This week's reviser was Gaby_MSFT

This week's second largest document to get some attention is the all important Wiki Ninjas Blog Authoring Schedule , by Ed Price - MSFT

This week Benoit Jester - MTFC & Naomi N have added some extra slots.


So I'll highlight this week's THIRD largest document to get some attention is List Template Model to use with SharePoint REST API 2013, by Kpbutt

This is a new article from Kpbutt, but worth a highlight simply for the introduction, which I felt was very good in itself, and I hope future tweakers keep some of the sentiment.

"Wow!   I never thought that I would actually be the person on the other side, not the one reading the post but the one actually writing it.  I would like to apologize ahead if this article comes as novice and not with enough details.  Considering the number of repetitive posts on Apps for SharePoint 2013 forum, I wanted to quickly draft something which would share my experience with you.  I hope this article saves you considerable amount of time and effort, and I certainly would want your feedback on how to improve the article and the template model.  Without further due and too much text, let's start."

Although the content is currently just a code dump, the sentiment is exactly what we like, someone contributing something that helped them, hoping to save others time, and asking for help to improve. That is exactly what the wiki is all about. 


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


This week's most fiddled with article is yet again Turkish Council Center, by Gokan Ozcifci. It was revised 31 times last week.

This week's revisers were Ugur Demir, Yavuz Tasci, Mehmet PARLAKYIGIT-MTTC, Elguc Yusifbeyli, Davut EREN, Asil mutlu & Nihat ALTINMAKAS

So I'll highlight the second most fiddled with article, which has also had a mention before, Active Directory: Glossary, by Richard Mueller. It was revised 24 times last week.

This week's reviser was Richard Mueller,

This week's most third fiddled with article is another regular, TechNet Guru Contributions for November 2013, by XAML guy (me). It was revised 22 times last week.

This week's revisers were Steef-Jan Wiggers, Kelly Bush, Suleiman Shakhtour, Dave Smits, Michael Amadi, Muralidharan Deenathayalan, pituach, Tim Pacl, Magnus (MM8), Nilesh Jain, Ed Price - MSFT, Benoit Jester - MTFC, Jaliya Udagedara, Tomasso Groenendijk, Naomi N & mcosmin


SO I highlight this week's fourth most fiddled with article, SharePoint 2013: Service Accounts, by Margriet Bruggeman. It was revised 21 times last week.

This week's revisers were Carsten Siemens & Hossein Aarabi

This is new last week, but this week, most of the work has been done by Hossein, who has been busy tidying it up. This is a great article by another wiki councillor Margriet, and well worth a read.


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


The top articles to be updated by the most people this week are regular winners TechNet Guru Contributions for November 2013, by XAML guy, then Turkish Council Center, by Gokan Ozcifci


So I'm highlighting the third article to be updated by the most people this week, Transact-SQL Portal, by Naomi N

This week's revisers were Saeid Hasani, pituach, Durval Ramos & Naomi N

This is one of my top "to watch" articles, as I think this one could will grow and grow into another wiki classic. There's some great links there already, with more coming each week.

Thanks to everyone who is helping to build up this invaluable resource.
