Today we are pleased to announce that the TechNet Wiki Ninja Belt awards system is now back on line!
The system now uses a new "calculator" which decides who has what. This pulls data in from our own records and user's profiles to decide the rankings.
This whole project is explained more in this previous blog post.
Along with the new format, we are showing progress towards the next belt, which should help people understand what is required for the next belt.
Below is an example of our highest achiever, Ed Price:
For the requirements, see the Wiki Ninja Belt Rankings, Black Belt - Sensei (6th Dan) section
- Ed Price - MSFT
Achievements for current belt:
- Last Top Contributor win was 9/27/2014
- New Articles = 818/750
- Article Edits = 24153/7500
- Comments = 8663/3750
Progress towards next belt:
- Needs another Top Contributor win since the last Ninja belt awarded
- Has 19 Featured Articles
- New Articles = 818/1000
- Article Edits = 24153/10000
- Comments = 8663/5000
What this all means is the Ninja belts can now be calculated and published semi-automatically, which at least makes it manageable for us all to participate and start earning those belts!
