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|
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.
