Wiki Life: Featured Articles in the TechNet Wiki



The first time you access the
TechNet Wiki Home page, you'll see a group of four articles, in the center of page, and it shows that there is something special about their content.

Once you start reading one of the featured articles, you can understand why these articles are in a highly valued position on the landing page.

Usually they are very detailed articles, with images illustrating each step for the solution or they're sharing the source code so that the reader can understand it and use it in practice.

In summary, these articles suggest a solution or share knowledge in a clear way, where all the Community on TechNet and MSDN, including the members that don't work with this Product or Technology, can understand what was shared in the article! 

The work to select these articles are the responsibility of some teams that are made up of the Community. Each team is distinct for each language version of TechNet Wiki.

See these Featured Article Teams below for the TechNet Wiki:

Team Wiki Language Version
English  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/ 
Portuguese  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/pt-br/
Russian  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/ru-ru/ 
Chinese  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/zh-cn/ 

 

 

 

 

 

The criteria for selection of these articles are also based on the features that have been described above, but they may also have been influenced by Community, if an article is considered to hold a particular value where it clearly shares knowledge with all the community members.

If you know an interesting article to nominate for this honor, read: How to Nominate TechNet Wiki Article to be Featured on the Home page of TechNet Wiki.

You can see other articles that have previously had this privilege, by accessing the TechNet Wiki Featured Article tag. Also, you can find the English featured articles listed by technology here and listed chronologically (by when they were featured) here.

    Right to the point 🙂

  9. Durval Ramos says:

    Thanks Saeid ! You’re right, it’s important to make clear to all Community what reason this articles are privileged. Nothing is by chance and my intention is just to clarify.

  10. Is this logo an official logo of the Wiki?

  11. Durval Ramos says:

    Gokan, I found this logo on a LATAM TechNet page, but I don’t know if it was used in other web sites before. I believe that Ed can say more about this logo and if has been used before on International TechNet Wiki or, if it was just an isolated action
    in Latin America.
