The Heart of TechNet Wiki

A few days ago, some countries celebrated "Valentine's Day" to increase the passionate love, but I will not write a poem or romantic words.

Today I want to highlight a few articles that are part of the "heart" of our TechNet Wiki. They are the core docs.

Perhaps these selected articles aren't favorites articles of most of us, but surely these articles are extremely important so that we can write our owner articles with quality.


So for today's Article Spotlight, I would like to highlight some articles that I consider important for everyone that write on TechNet Wiki:

Governance and Guidelines Portal – Contains a list of well established best practices to govern the TechNet Wiki Community

Best Practices for Giving Credit – Important Tips to extend credit and also clarify the differences between quotes and plagiarism

Message Templates – Several ways that help to highlight snippets of a text, it's a good standard, easy for all our readers to understand the content in our article

How to Contribute Content to TechNet Wiki – It seems that is an article for beginners, but have information that may be helpful to improve the quality of many of our articles

What Makes a Great Wiki Article – After improving his article, read some tips to make it a great reference for the Community

Types of Articles Not Appropriate for TechNet Wiki – It's important to know the limits, either in a Risky Activity or in our TechNet Wiki

Common Tags and Technology Tags – To help everyone search your articles with efficiency, use all features of the Wiki. The tags are excellent in this task


There are many interesting articles about this subject and many others should be written, especially now that we have a new specific category for TechNet Guru awards.

Review your concepts: what's good and what's bad in your articles?  Maybe we can influence more people with our TechNet Wiki.

Perhaps, one or more Wiki Ninjas can change the world.
