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 MAP: How to inventory your VMware environment, by 

This week's reviser was Tyler Castaldo,

As the change comments say, Tyler "Updated screen shots to display UI changes in MAP 9.0." and also made them a lot clearer! 


Ninja Award Longest Article Award  
Biggest article updated this week


This week's largest document to get some attention is T-SQL: FIFO Inventory Problem - Cost of Goods Sold, by Naomi N

This week's reviser was Naomi N,

What makes this such a long document is a whole heap of code, but Naomi is always meticulous to include plenty of discussion and references!


Also worth highlighting is this week's third largest document to get some attention, TechNet Wiki Featured Article Nominees, by 

This week's reviser was Ed Price - MSFT,

This is a list of articles anyone can add to, from which we often choose the front page Featured Articles. 

The reason is is showing as so long is partly due to an unfortunate bug that has spawned row after row of line breaks!

I've left it for now to highlight just out of interest for the blog, but if no-one beats me to it, I'll try and find time to remove them all again later in the week.


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


This week's most fiddled with article is Windows Azure Pack (#WAPack) and Related Blogs, Videos and TechNet Articles, by .

It was revised 23 times last week. Revisers listed below.

What a wonderful find this was. An amazing list of links that I am steadily working through, and will probably take most of the holiday season.

A complete list of recent changes can be found here, and as you can see some devoted fans of the page have been helping to keep it fresh!


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


The article to be updated by the most people this week is TechNet Guru Contributions for December, by XAMLguy (me)

December is rapidly drawing to a close with a burst of fantastic contributions.

It has been a great year for the TechNet Guru Competition, and we have learned some new names, some real players and made some genuine friends along the way.

Thank you sincerely to everyone who has participated in 2013, and I hope you will all continue to wow us with your generous contributions to our knowledge fund 🙂

This week's revisers were Yavuz Tasci -TAT, Davut EREN - TAT, Nihat ALTINMAKAS, Mehmet PARLAKYIGIT-TAT & Ugur Demir - TAT

2013 saw the creation and rise to fame of the legendary TAT.

This band of brothers have taken TechNet by storm, stamped their authority on the Wiki and planted the flag for Turkey!


Third most popular article was mentioned above, Windows Azure Pack (#WAPack) and Related Blogs, Videos and TechNet Articles, by .

This week's revisers were marcvaneijk, Hans Vredevoort - MVP (Virtual Machine), Peter Geelen - MSFT & jlrobinson2171

I had to mention this article again, because it really is a bookmarker. Pass it round!


Ninja Award Ninja Edit Award  
A ninja needs lightning fast reactions!


Below is a list of this week's fastest ninja edits. That's an edit to an article after another person

Also worth a mention are the other top ten ninja edits:

What an amazing year we've had!

I've certainly learned a lot, and made some great new friends, and discovered who the real players are in this MSDN & TechNet community.

A high five to all those who have risen through the ranks, invited into our inner circles, and are now involved in various projects we have.

Congratulations also to those who have won awards, become MVPs, been interviewed and generally promoted in life, due to their efforts across these many community efforts.

It is truly joyful to think [especially at this time of year] how many kind, clever and generous people we have in this community. Generous with their time, patience, and knowledge.

If you don't hear from me again until the New Year, then I sincerely thank you for your support, and wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! 


Best regards,
Pete Laker
