Introduction

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 <month> <year>, 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 5 judges. The judges consist of 3 TechNet Wiki Community Council members and 2 Microsoft Employee SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) and/or MVPs. 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 <month> <year>, must be in English and article should be related to Microsoft product only. However, the original blog or forum content can be from before <month> <year>.  Make sure you aren't taking credit for someone else's content (you have to be the original author of the original content and 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).
