  • We (the community) have found that when the TechNet Wiki site has performance problems, we may get timeout errors. Most of the time our action (publishing a new article or editing an article) completes, but we get an error. When this happens, metadata often does not get updated, or our profile does not get updated (the activity added to our recent activity page and our statistics do not get updated). Most of the time, XAML Guy's weekly crawl seems to pick up the activity, so there is a chance that eventually our statistics could be updated. However, in most cases it never happens. I myself also created a new article recently and my count of new articles never got updated.

  • In other words, there are many bugs in regards to TechNet Wiki and unfortunately you got hit by one of them.

    But you gave me an idea - how about adding TechNet Guru competition winner (or multi-winner) as part of the profile? And also, how about adding it as a an achievement medal?

    Sounds like a good idea, what do the forums' owners think?

  • What I have also noticed is points related to my articles are counted/given to other user.

    While start writing the article I gave a draft title something like “A complex post” and written few lines to the article. Meanwhile another user comment in the article as “nice topic for wiki article”. Later I have updated the article with more information, changed the title, which went on to get a Technical-Guru medal.

    When I realized that my MSDN-porfile is not updated with the article, I check the activities of the user who first commented in my draft article, he receives the points related to my article but under the title “A complex post”. There are two issues here:

    1. Points related to my article are given to another user who commented in its initial version.
    2. Points to other user are comes as “The article A complex post on the TechNet Wiki has achieved its 15 minutes of fame. Congratulations”. This activity doesn’t use the updated title but still uses the title which I used while starting the article.

    This is a known issue. But I'll submit another bug request to check on it.
