This list will appear on a Home page tab (at the bottom), on your profile, or on a separate page for links like this (similar to how on the Forums page, there is a persistent link on the right called "My threads" that takes you to a page that lists every
thread you've posted in). I recommend the last option (a separate page) because it would work similar to the Forums page that already exists. The
My created articles link would live on the right side of every Wiki page, under the
Options section. Submitted by Ed Price.
We used to have this feature on the old profile, where you can pick what articles you want to have displayed in a list. This makes the most sense in a profile (to show off your favorite articles to others).
Include the number of page views on each Wiki page.
Considering modern screen sizes, image size restriction of 600px seems to be quite low, especially for the larger screenshots. It makes sense that the image size is all that can fit on the screen. However, to utilize larger images, we would need a lightbox
feature so that readers can zoom in on the required image (or even part of it!). Live Writer has been doing that (subject to support from a blogging engine). Here are examples of lightbox plugins:

Currently TechNet Wiki is limited to embedding YouTube videos. If we could embed any videos, then we could embed videos that currently live in the TechNet Library video system. Submitted by Ed Price.
In addition to the browser's RSS feed capability, we should add an RSS feature to tags. Submitted by George Doubinski.
A tool that would enable you to edit the capilization of tags. This would allow us to make tags look consistent. Another solution would be simply to force all tags to be all lower case. Currently the first person who enters the tag controls the case of the tag.
Here is an example of tags that are inconsistent:

Automatically put a visual flag on external links so that we know when we're leaving the Wiki.
NOTE: This feature does not flag TechNet forum links, but it does flag any other TechNet links (such as Library links) and it flags any other forum links (such as Microsoft Answers or MSDN).
Make the default behavior target a new window for an external link. "External" is defined by any site that is not TechNet Wiki. By that definition, "external" includes other TechNet and Microsoft pages.
Because the External Links icon isn't super clear (that your link is external and thus will open up in a new window), we would add the tooltip to the icon that says something like, "This link is external to TechNet Wiki. It will open in a new window."
The top 10 people who created the most articles each month. Cycle it out each day like we do with the weekly list of editors/contributors. (So it's a list of authors in the last month from the current day.) Submitted by Ed Price.
NOTE: The list is of the Top 5 New Articles Created of the month. Find that in the Wiki Leaderboards on the right side of this page:
Feature to automatically display the Table of Contents.
I think the information lists should be at the top of this list in importance. Put a cookie out in front of people and they'll reach for it (unless Ed gets to it first!).
What about providing a feature that renders the Wiki page in a printer friendly way, like the one that you can see in the Microsoft Knowledge Base articles' pages?
Does anyone know if the Apple Safri browser if supported by TechNet Wiki?
