Ninja Award Most Updated Article Award  Largest amount of updated content in a single article


The article to have the most change this week was Operations Manager Management Pack Authoring - Dashboards, by Brian Wren

This week's reviser was Brian Wren

First up this week, an example of excessive pruning :) 
Brian has taken his article and severely trimmed it down to what it is now. This is a fine example of how the Wiki is living breathing content.
Always relevant. Always ready. Thanks Brian for your continued attention to your Wiki articles.


Ninja Award Longest Article Award  Biggest article updated this week


This week's largest document to get some attention that I've pcked for glory is Authentication using Facebook, Google and Microsoft account in WP8.0 App (MVVM), by saramgsilva

This week's revisers were Shanky_621, Sandro Pereira & saramgsilva

This is a last minute entry into May's TechNet Guru Competition, and a very strong contender it is too.
This is full of win, from the premise, to the solution, and page layout.
Good luck saramgsilva, this deserves a medal in my opinion, but each category has up to six judges from Microsoft, TechNet Wiki and MVPs

There are often so many high calibre entries into the Guru competitions, it is often a shame we can only give three medals.
For this reason we may at some time consider doing something with all the entries again, in future initiatives.



Ninja Award Most Revised Article Award  Article with the most revisions in a week


This week's most fiddled with article is TechNet Guru Contributions for May 2014, by XAML guy. It was revised 29 times last week.

Always a winner, May has been another bumper month of awesomeness.
Only the Visual Basic Gurus didn't show this month.


Therefore, I also highlight his week's second most fiddled with article is Minimum Security Rights for BizTalk Server 2013 R2, by ThomasECanter. It was revised 21 times last week.

<Cue fanfare...> New arrival from Thomas, who is also new to the community. However, his first post is very nice and drawing attention from others.

I also like how gracious he is in comments to those who help tweak his work. Someone who has clearly understood the philosophy and purpose of the Wiki.

Good luck Thomas, welcome and looking forward to more of the same. 



Ninja Award Most Popular Article Award  Collaboration is the name of the game!


The article to be updated by the most people this week is TechNet Guru Contributions for May 2014, by XAML guy

And the list of awesome collaborators this week is:

This week's revisers were João Eduardo Sousa, Mr X, Magnus (MM8), Hasham Niaz, Durval Ramos, Bob Blork, SubramanyamRaju.B, Sandro Pereira, Tomasso Groenendijk, Mahdi Tehrani, Mang Alex, Geetanjali Arora, Shanky_621, Muhammad Ehsan, Naomi N, Ravindar Thati, Dan Christian, Saad Mahmood, Steef-Jan Wiggers & Sarat Babu (SS)


The article to be updated by the SECOND most people this week is AAD Cloud App Discovery Preview - Changelog , by Nima Hashemi

This week's revisers were Nima Hashemi, Soren Dreijer, Markus Vilcinskas & Bob Blork

Regarding your comments Bob, Microsoft use the WIki for many things, this being one of them.

But don't worry, if you aren't looking for it, you won't find it :)



Ninja Award Ninja Edit Award  A ninja needs lightning fast reactions!


Below is a list of this week's fastest ninja edits. That's an edit to an article after another person

A quiet week across the Wiki, but a busy Guru corner, as the month comes to a close.

I close the competition tomorrow, so ANY VB programmers out there could drop in something simple and nifty and win a medal! Guru wins will soon count towards Ninja Belts, so an easy win is always worth snatching!

Thanks for joining me again in celebration of the week's wonderful wiki work, and hope to see your name in next week's awards!  


Best regards,
Pete Laker
