And below are the results for the TechNet Guru Awards, August 2013 !!!!
The TechNet Guru Awards celebrate the technical articles on TechNet, contributed from valued wiki authors like YOU!
Each month, the contributions are scored by a panel of judges (5 per category, 2-3 in each are MS experts), and the winners of each category are showered with love and attention from all corners of TechNet.
See the links at the bottom, to find out more about the competition and how to enter.
We have picked the top three highest scored contributions for each category to bestow our awards upon.
The awards are in gold, silver and bronze, the gold obviously being the top winner of the category.
The last column is just a few of the comments judges made during the judging process.
In some cases, we have not obtained permission to use the judges names, so they have been reduced to initials.
My fellow wiki ninjas will be digging deeper into some of these articles in this blog series, so watch out for those.
A big thank you also to the other authors who did not make the top three of each category.
Some articles only just missed out, so we may be returning to discuss those too, in future blogs.
Congratulations to these three for achieving greatness this month, some great articles. Maheshkumar gave us many contributions last month. Thanks also to Lex Hegt for his contribution.
Brilliant contributions here, one and all. Hats off to Daniel, Matthew and Rahul. Check out the full listings last month as we also had some nice contributions from Mohammad Nizamuddin and Aurélien Prévot.
Nuff said in the comments I think! Thank you Nonki for supporting this category for August!
We only had two entrants for August, as shown above. Superb work by both. Congratulations to Rajkumar5055 for just nosing ahead this time.
Although Saeid won two of August's awards, that is simply how the voting tool goes. We also had some other excellent entries by SathyanarrayananS, Shanky_621, Sugumar Pannerselvam & Surendra Nath GM
Only these three names contributed last month, but all are very good quality contributions. Thanks guys! Hope to see you in September's winners!
All deserving winners in this category, nice work folks! Also worth mentioning were the contributions by Mohammad Nizamuddin, Paul Ishak & Deeptendra
Thanks for keeping the Windows Phone category afloat Chilberto. Maybe we can all rouse up some more competition for you in September!
Thanks for your support Sachin S. We also need to promote this category more methinks...
Yey, Silver for me! Congratulations to the others. Gaurav Khanna also gave a nice contribution in August, but it wasn't added to the competition page before the end of month deadline, when submissions were closed and the list was loaded into the judging tool for voting.
Thanks Ike! Let's try and round up more for September.
Thanks Uwe! Maybe we can find more contributors for future months...
A great big thanks to EVERYONE who contributed an article to last month's competition.
Hopefully we will see you ALL again in this month's listings?
If you have not yet contributed an article for this month, and you think you can create a more useful, clever and better presented wiki article than the winners above, here's your chance! :D
Best regards,Pete Laker
