StatCounter for article TechNet Wiki Bugfix: Save with RetryThis article addresses a frequent TechNet Wiki bug:

Saving an article often fails and may require several manual retries.

A Tampermonkey script mitigates this problem:

It adds an additional "Save !" button which automatically retries a failing save action up to 10 times.
If 10 retries fail a confirmation dialog offers you to continue or cancel.

Let's fix the Wiki?

Unfortunately, TechNet Wiki has several known issues. Some of them already exist for years although many of them are easy to fix (like the mixed-up change tags on the history tab). A draft plan for improving the Wiki could look like this:

  1. We update/complete the list of known wiki bugs
  2. The community (council) prioritizes these bugs
  3. A (small) budget is provided to fix at least the top-prioritized bugs
