Top Contributors Awards! First of 2014!

Welcome back for another analysis of contributions to TechNet Wiki over the last week.

First up, the weekly leader board snapshot...

Peter well deserves to take top spot for the start of the year post, as he does so much work over the years, and is one of the most important "behind the scenes" players in TechNet.

Peter has ended & started the year with a large amount of tidying, including deleting unwanted articles. I'm sure you'll join me in congratulating Peter for topping the charts this week and thanking him for everything he does for TechNet Wiki.


As always, here are the results of another weekly crawl over the updated articles feed.

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 Solicitações de recursos para o TechNet e MSDN perfis e ferramentas de plataforma Social., by Hezequias Vasconcelos - MTFC

This week's reviser was just Hezequias Vasconcelos - MTFC,

This is a faithful translation of a top level wiki organisation page, Feature Requests for TechNet and MSDN Profiles and Social Platform Tools. This page lists all the requests for changes to MSDN and TechNet and is quite extensive.

I think this could be quite fun to maintain, as that page may change frequently, but Hezequias is one of the team, so I'm sure he'll be email-subscribing to changes. Great work Hezequias!


Ninja Award Longest Article Award  Biggest article updated this week


This week's largest document to get some attention is once again T-SQL: FIFO Inventory Problem - Cost of Goods Sold, by Naomi N

This week's second largest document to get some attention is as above, Solicitações de recursos para o TechNet e MSDN perfis e ferramentas de plataforma Social., by Hezequias Vasconcelos - MTFC

So I'll highlight this week's THIRD largest document to get some attention is Full help of Microsoft Powershell STORAGE module, by i.biswajith

This week's reviser was only i.biswajith,

This hunk of help has been faithfully copied into TechNet, and I can't find another source, so it is gratefully received.

Thanks to all three gargantuan gifts!
