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 Configuring the Windows Server 2012 R2 Base Configuration Test Lab in Windows Azure, by Joe Davies

This week's reviser was Joe Davies.

Well, "most change" as in deleted! As the remaining link says, it is now available somewhere else, so I am guessing this page itself may get removed due to its futility.


So I'll mention the article to have the SECOND most change this week, a new article called .NET Resources on Technet Wiki, by Peter Geelen - MSFT.

This week's reviser was Peter Geelen - MSFT.

What a fantastic collection of links from Peter. Could do with some organising or grouping maybe, but it is an invaluable bookmark for anyone wanting to just trawl through random .net related articles.


Ninja Award Longest Article Award  
Biggest article updated this week


This week's largest document to get some attention is SharePoint 2010 : Custom BCS connector for Search with Security Trimming, Batching, Incremental Crawling, by Nitin K. Gupta.

This week's reviser was Nitin K. Gupta.

This is a great collaboration document, from Nitin Gupta and Vaibhav Sharma. There's a whole heap of code with this one, but plenty of detailed descriptions scattered through it too. Great work guys!


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


This week's most fiddled with article is SharePoint Resources on the TechNet Wiki, by Maheshkumar S Tiwari. It was revised 25 times last week.

This week's reviser was Maheshkumar S Tiwari.

Another colossal collection of links, this time for all things SharePoint.

Both Peter's and Mahesh's articles are hopefully being entered in this month's Guru competition, as they both fit into the new "Wiki & Portals" category.

This new category is for articles which are about the actual wiki itself, or portal pages (link lists to other TechNet/Wiki pages) 


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 January 2014, by XAML guy.

This was mostly people tidying it in retrospect, as January is closed, but still wins on a slow week for collaboration.

This week's revisers were XAML guy, Ed Price - MSFT, Naomi N, Richard Mueller, Madhu_SA & Maheshkumar S Tiwari.


The article to be updated by the SECOND most people this week is Wiki: Portal of TechNet Wiki Portals, by Richard Mueller.

A fantastic portal page, that is growing into an alpha point for the whole wiki.

This week's revisers were Richard Mueller, Yagmoth555, João Eduardo Sousa, Naomi N & Carsten Siemens.


The article to be updated by the THIRD most people this week is Visual C# Resources on the TechNet Wiki, by Maheshkumar S Tiwari.

Another great collection of links here from Mahesh. Keep up the great work sir!

This week's revisers were João Eduardo Sousa, Carsten Siemens, Peter Geelen - MSFT, Maheshkumar S Tiwari & Paul Ishak.
