More than anything else, please be nice. “Not nice” activities will get you banned from the TechNet Wiki. For more information about maintaining a neutral point of view (NPOV) in your Wiki work, see the definition of NPOV in Roles.
This article is also available the following languages:
Regarding the last bullet. Do you really think that Wiki is a good place for discussions? I suppose forums are more suitable for this.
IMHO - If there is a technical question or discussion on how a technology works, it should go to forums. However, if there is a simple discussion of whether an article on the Wiki is correct, it might make sense to start it here, but then take it to Forums if it gets extensive. Then someone would need to follow up by correcting the article itself if the disagreement is resolved in a way that deems it necessary.
Re Dicussion: policy discusion, feature requests, and bug reports can be filed in the forum for the wiki at: social.technet.microsoft.com/.../threads
I like the title of this topic. If you were ever wondering how to get banned, now you know! I think this article should start out like this: "To get banned, do one of the following."
Changed in the fr-FR NPOC to BPOV to match "Policies that Govern the Wiki", but let me know if I should change to NPOC (balanced / neutral)
Yagmoth, I'm not 100% sure what you're asking, but I think it's good the way it is. Thanks for translating!
my pleasure for the translation :). for the bpov it's simply because it's named that way in "wiki: roles", and there npov, thats why i was wondering :)
OK, so why was I banned? My account was "freedom_nut", and I didn't break any of these rules.
SQL Server dude, please open a new thread in the Profile forum or the Forums Issues forum. Or email me. It's edprice at Microsoft. No one's monitoring this page for ban issues. I don't know enough info to answer your question. Some people were banned in the September timeframe because a lot of spammers existed, and a few non-spammers got banned with the spammers because the behavior at the time looked the same. Thanks!
Is banning from TechNet Wiki will be also for forums and vice versa?
