Council Spotlight: Who are the TechNet Wiki Community Council members?


Hello!

The names are listed in order of when they joined the TechNet Wiki Community Council. Since this council is a task force designed to make the Wiki a better place, we have a fairly high turnover rate (people join but don't have the time to help get stuff done). So we keep cycling people through when they are able to contribute. However, the benefits have been outstanding over the course of 2013.   

You can find the current members here: TechNet Wiki Community Council

For more details about our Areas of Focus, see TechNet Wiki Community Council: Areas of Focus.

To learn about who is invited to join the council, see TechNet Wiki Community Council: How to Become a Member

    Thanks to all council members! Thanks Ed for providing this great list!

  3. Durval Ramos says:

    The Council is very important for good quality of the TechNet Wiki. These members cited by Ed make our Community have life, and not just be a place to display content. They organize and motivate all of us to always produce more quality articles (even if that influence is not conscious in every one of us).

    I would like to thank this work with words, but we are IT people so the numbers speak for myself about this growth.

    Congratulations to all

  4. Awesome job guys! Your time and effort makes a big difference to the quality (and value) of the Wiki!

  5. Thanks Ed for highlighting this part of the Technet Wiki.

    Plagiarism checkers are wonderful tools to hit upon plagiarism in files. However, you need to remember the fact that they can not access password protected areas or some thing that isn’t always in their databases. Try this to get all
