TechNet Wiki Updates: June 7, 2013 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Here is a summary of recent updates on TechNet Wiki.

       

    Home Pages:

    • On the main TechNet Wiki home page, we removed the RSS feed icon for the Featured Articles. The icon was legacy from an older process used (a very difficult process) that has been replaced. The current process does not allow an RSS feed for the Featured Articles on the home page of TechNet Wiki. However, we added this as a feature request that we'll track.
    • On the right pane of the main TechNet Wiki home page, in the "Help & Feedback" section, we replaced the Wiki: Roles article with a new article, Wiki: Governance and Guidelines Portal. That article contains the Roles article and all the other articles about governance and guidelines of TechNet Wiki.
    • On the Brazil Portuguese TechNet Wiki home page, we updated the Featured Articles.

    New and Updated Processes:

       

    Upcoming:

    • We have Wiki improvements coming in the next 1-2 months. We'll explain what that includes toward the end of the summer.
    • Advisory Board - This board is being redesigned and re-established. More information will be available in the next update.

    Wiki Edit Activity now shows...

    You get points when a milstone is reached. You get a lot of points when an article you wrote reaches a milestone. You get a little bit of points, per edit, when a significant edit is made, when the same article reaches a milestone. So those are the points you got. That Robocopy article reached a milestone recently, and you've edited it. So thus you get some points for that edit.

    The problem was that some people complained that they didn't see what articles they were getting points from. So they asked to see it appear in the Activity. Now it does. Confusing, but still a little helpful so that you know where the points came from. =^)
