MondayInterview with a Forum Ninja – We pick one contributor on MSDN and Technet Forums, write about their forum achievements (and also about their other achievements), and we interview them.

WednesdayFeatured Forum  – We write about a Microsoft forum that we think is great, whether it's about a great technology, is an example of great collaboration and moderation, or simply features a lot of great answers or news-related posts.
