    Monthly updates,. Great stuff!
    I think a faster turnover on featured articles is a great idea.
    These should increase the likelihood of serendipity.
    The reader navigates to technet wiki looking for something or other or just happens to find it for the first time. There on the front page are 4 chances at great article to showcase the wiki.

    I’m not sure how useful comments are for measuring acceptance… but it’s a great idea.

    Thanks Andy !!!

    These are some criteria that the "English Featured Article" Team must evaluate… but each team member can consider one criterion is more important than another one…

    The comments are just a "thermometer" to your article… measuring your popularity… your engagement… about a troubleshooting… It really is not essential to nominate/define a article as TNWiki "Featured Article".

    If you know a great article… either yours or another author’s…

    Please, add to nominate an article for TNWiki "Home":
