TechNet Wiki Platform Update 1: The Wiki is changing!!!
In a few weeks, the current plan is for the Wiki platform to change.
You could probably tell that it takes a few clicks to get a new article created or an edit made. The platform has been difficult to maintain.
Our TechNet team is updating the platform! We should see many performance improvements.
We'll also see a few new features. But we won't have feature parity in a few areas. That might mean a few missing things (like leaderboards, code formatting editor, or a few feeds) or the system might not work quite as efficiently (like the History tab). But we're working to get that parity in place.
We think these will be minor hiccups and worth all the performance improvements. It's a necessary transition, as the current platform can't be maintained and updated properly (thus the performance issues), and we need to be able to fix bugs, add features, and more easily update featured articles.
We'll update you with progress here and offer transparency into what parity we're missing, what parity gets added back in, what performance issues are fixed, and what new features get lit up.
Thank you for your help and your patience!
