TechNet Wiki Ninja Belts – Updated (March 2015)

Hello Wiki Ninjas and much valued TechNet and MSDN members !!!

The Ninja Belt Calculator has just been run, and the list of Ninja Belts have been updated in the following TechNet WIki article:


Wiki Ninja Belt Status: Who Has What Belt Ranking


The calculator has been run monthly, due to the constant work done of everyone involved to make Wiki Ninja Belts a reality.

It recognizing their work to sharing knowledge in Technical articles to Developers and IT Professionals.


Wiki Ninja Belt


You don't know what to do get your TNWiki Ninja Belt?

Well... anyone who "comes onto our radar" (either by winning a Weekly Top Contributor Award, winning a TechNet Technical Guru Award, being interviewed or having a Featured Article) gets added to our database.

We then track your progress and achievements, and award Ninja Belts - depending on your progress.

Ninja belt ranks include your TechNet / MSDN Profile stats, so we have to import them too.

Altogether, this is crunched through our Ninja Belt Calculator, based on the rules defined here.

See below is a list of those Community members who are being promoted to Ninja Belt levels:

  7. Andy ONeill says:

    Thanks Ed and congratulations all.
    Eagle eyed Ninjas might notice there’s a minor glitch in Pete’s software and it failed to import some medals. For example, I have Wiki Community gold editor 2 but it’s showing as outstanding for my progress to the next belt..
    Pete is aware of the issue and will fix it ASAP. I have no idea whether anyone’s progress up the belt award thingummy was affected but I guess that’ll be fixed for next month.

  8. Ed (DareDevil57), you have an Orange Belt:

    You earned it on 2/11/15.

    So you’ll make one of these lists next when you get to the Green Belt…

    Achievements for current belt: (awarded 2/11/2015)
    ◦ Received Wiki Contributor II Silver achievement medal
    ◦ Received Wiki Commentator II Silver achievement medal
    ◦ Has 20 Top Contributor wins

    Progress towards next belt: ◦Needs Wiki Editor III Gold achievement medal
    ◦ Needs Wiki Commentator III Gold achievement medal
    ◦ Needs Wiki Community Editor Silver achievement medal
    ◦ Has 20 Top Contributor wins
    ◦ New Articles = 129/15

    So you need to do more edits and comments on Wiki articles.

  9. Also congrats to Arleta, Ashwin, Erdem, Emre, Sylvain, Sathish, Yan Grenier, Jason Gerend, Joon84,
    Marcelo, Emiliano, and Diego!

    We have a complex "calculator" and some Profiles that aren’t being loaded properly, but we are making minor adjustments.

    In your Profile missing a few articles to next "Ninja Belt"… I believe that in April … you may have a new Belt!!!

  15. Congrats to everyone, however I achieved another medal needed for an upgrade but don’t see my name on the list. Please advise
