    - Will TechNet Wiki contributors get profile points? What are the plans/thoughts around that?

    - Will we get the ability to include more description space on our profiles for more text, images, and/or videos? Are there any plans or thoughts around that?

    - Will we get Favorited articles back to our profiles? If not, shouldn't we remove the "Favorite" feature since it currently does nothing?

  • Very interesting questions!

    IMHO:
    Question 1. Yes, that's + 1 as feature request!
    Question 2. Yes, feature request! (+1)
    Question 3. Yes, please, I miss that one too! (+1)

    It would certainly help to promote the use of the wiki.
    And it would be a big step forward in the wiki usability!

  • Profile points will happen.

    We can collect profile requests/scenarios and submit them to the Profile team for consideration. Pile on this thread!

    "Favorite" should be removed since it does not currently do anything. Agreed. Out of curiousity, is the functionality missed?

    Yes. 

    Peter also mentioned that he missed the Favorite feature (being able to Favorite articles that then get placed on your profile). It was one way to easily see what articles you wrote or which ones you want to work on more, etc. 

    So I don't think the feature is the best/only way to satisfy that need. If we could see all the articles we created for all time, then that would take care of it.

  • I can answer my own questions now...

     

    - Will TechNet Wiki contributors get profile points? What are the plans/thoughts around that?

    Answer: They do now! Yay! Points and achievements!

     

    - Will we get the ability to include more description space on our profiles for more text, images, and/or videos? Are there any plans or thoughts around that?

    Answer: No current plans around that, but it's a good idea that a lot of people want.

     

    - Will we get Favorited articles back to our profiles? If not, shouldn't we remove the "Favorite" feature since it currently does nothing?

    Answer: We removed the "Favorite" button to solve this problem. However, it would be a nice feature to have on the new profiles.
