All Wiki members want to see good results from their efforts, you can call it ROI (return on investment). They have been spending a lot of time to achieve a better TechNet Wiki along the time.
However, we need to keep balance in our Wiki Life. In my opinion, we need to achieve a more balanced model which respect both groups: competitive people and collaborators. It is obvious that a group of collaborative people wins over a group of competitors. While having a very collaborative team is a sort of perfectionism, on the other hand having a very competitive team will finally result in disengaged authors.
Let me focus on a specific use case as an example.
If we search articles in the TechNet Wiki, the result shows with the avatar of their last editor. Well it is an ultra-collaborative approach. Why? Because we grant the credit of that article to the last editor who applied even a minimal edit on top of a very hard work of the first publisher, just for the sake of the collaboration!
We have more use cases in the TechNet Wiki which could be in a suggested change list to achieve a more balanced model.
For the second sample, I believe that the first publisher deserves an “about the writer” section in each article. It should be there automatically when one publishes an article.
As the third use case, the avatar of the first publisher in his article should become larger than the avatar of the last editor.
Although, there are more uses cases to achieve a better balanced model, you can leave your comment here, so we can make a wish list.
Have great nights and nice days!
