TechNet Wiki Community Council

TechNet Wiki Community Council

Purpose

The Community Council is a small group of members from both Microsoft and the Community. The Community Council takes responsibility for the following goals and tasks:

  • Represents the Wiki community members to the community as a whole and to Microsoft.
  • Arbitrates disagreements between Wiki members over edits and/or policy change/feature change requests.
  • Recommends policy changes.
  • Maintains and enforces the Code of Conduct.
  • Fosters, incubates, and curates community.
  • Collect TNWiki bugs and feature requests, and then represent the community to the Wiki app team.
  • Facilitates community and social opportunities, including the Wiki Ninjas blog, the Wiki Ninjas Twitter account, the TechNet Wiki forum, and other social and community projects
  • Cross-linking and portal growth and expansion
  • Spam, duplicates, pirated content identification and deletion
  • Featuring TechNet Wiki articles

The Community Council is modeled on the Ubuntu Leadership Code of Conduct, whose “foremost goal is ensuring that their team members and team succeed.”
Early tasks of the Council included clarifying policies around plagiarism and non-English content.
