TechNet Guru Contributions for December 2013

TechNet Guru Contributions for December 2013




Introduction




December's competition has now closed.

The results are HERE.


January's competition page is here.

If you contribute any new code, or solutions to problems in the following categories, please add your content (that you write for a Forum or Blog) to TechNet Wiki, and then add a link to your TechNet Wiki article below, to let us know.

This is a TechNet Wiki awards program, so we only want WIKI LINKS for articles created in December, not old, external forum or gallery links. If you have already made a contribution on the forums or gallery, simply copy it into the wiki and reference the original article, like shown here.

One winner in each category will be selected each month for glory and adoration by the MSDN/TechNet Ninjas and community as a whole. This includes a dedicated blog post in the Wiki Ninjas blog, a tweet from the Wiki Ninjas Twitter account, an announcement on your forum, and other acknowledgement from the community.

Winners will be voted on by five judges. The judges consist of 3 TechNet Wiki Community Council members and 2 Microsoft Employee SMEs (Subject Matter Experts -usually the people making the technologies). The judges will be looking for articles that are thorough, technically accurate, visually clear (images might help, but aren't necessary), and well written. (Any community member can help with the "technically accurate" part by reviewing the articles below and either fixing inaccuracies in the article or commenting on them--asking questions or suggesting fixes.) The articles must be written in December 2013 and must be in English. However, the original blog or forum content can be from before December. Make sure you aren't taking credit for someone else's content (you have to be the author of the original content and of the Wiki article). The categories listed are targeted to the most popular forums/technologies and ones that we are able to support. We will add more categories as we go (please don't add more categories, instead, leave a comment at the bottom to suggest a new category).

How to Enter

1) Create a new TechNet article

YOU CAN COPY YOUR CONTRIBUTION FROM MSDN/TECHNET FORUMS OVER TO TECHNET WIKI (IN DECEMBER) TO QUALIFY FOR THESE AWARDS. You can also create a new article not related to your forums contributions.

A) Log into TechNet/MSDN with your Microsoft credentials

B) Add your content as an article to TechNet Wiki: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/add.aspx

If you are copying and pasting your MSDN/TechNet forum solutions over to TechNet Wiki, please give some introduction to the problem, make sure your steps are clear, and then link to the original forum post. You can also paste in your blog posts (rather than forum content).

2) Tell us about it

To add a link to your article:

A) Log into TechNet with your Microsoft credentials

B) Click the "Edit" tab, above this article title, and copy in the URL to your TechNet Wiki article into the appropriate section.
