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 SharePoint 2013: Troubleshooting - Cannot Connect to the Configuration Database, by Gokan Ozcifci

This week's reviser was just Gokan Ozcifci himself,

This is an "oldie but goodie" from Gokan, that has been updated with fresh content. Great work as always Gokan!


Ninja Award Longest Article Award  
Biggest article updated this week


This week's largest document to get some attention is Windows Azure Pack (#WAPack) and Related Blogs, Videos and TechNet Articles, by Hans Vredevoort - Hyper-V MVP

This week's reviser was Hans Vredevoort - Hyper-V MVP himself!

This is another must read for any Azure fans. Hans has returned also to update it, which keeps it at the top of the charts for essential reading.


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


This week's most fiddled with article is TechNet Guru Contributions for January 2014, by XAML guy. It was revised 15 times last week, revisers below.

2014 is already hotting up with some outstanding contributions. I recommend following this competition or even entering if you consider yourself a mover and shaker in any of the Microsoft Technologies.

Another of this week's most fiddled with articles is Office 365 Lessons Learnt, by Dan Kenyon-smith. It was revised 14 times last week.

This week's revisers were Dan Kenyon-smith & Naomi N

This is a nice snippet from Dan, tidied by one of our favourite wiki quality guardians, Naomi.

This is an example of giving something back, a snippet of knowledge that may save someone valuable time.


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 as above and often, TechNet Guru Contributions for January 2014, by XAML guy

This week's revisers were Ed Price - MSFT, Gal Ratner, AB82, pumpkinszwan, Joseph__Moody, Mohit Kumar Gupta, Jaliya Udagedara, Paul Ishak & Mr X

So I'll highlight, the third article to be updated by the most people this week -  C# : Action, Func<TResult> and Predicate<T> Delegate, by Jaliya Udagedara

This week's revisers were Maheshkumar S Tiwari, Ed Price - MSFT, Jaliya Udagedara, Peter Geelen - MSFT & Naomi N

A superb piece of work here. Excellent formatting and subject. Many of our regulars have clearly shown interest, as it is worth their time also to improve it even further.

This is exactly the example I like so show people. A quality contribution is appreciated by the community, who in turn help buff it to perfection.


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

Congratulations Hasan!

2014 has really started to pick up now, with new articles and revisions jumping back up to normal healthy/busy levels.

Thanks to everyone for coming back for another year to the TechNet Wiki community.


Best regards,
