We're going to take a deeper look at the TechNet Wiki Awards System... Wiki Ninja Belts.
First are the Novice Wiki Ninjas. This is for ninjas just getting started. The Achievement Medals are pretty easy to get, but placing in the Top Contributors even for one week is a bit of a challenge. It's not as easy as it seems...

Just enjoy working together in the TechNet Wiki community."About: This is only the start of a journey. The white belt can be achieved with 1 week of putting in extra effort.Ninjas: To see who currently holds this belt, see this belt's section in the Belt Status article.
Sensei Says: "A yellow belt means practice, practice, practice... And when you're done? Practice some more."About: Your journey continues as you prove you're a consistent editor. The tweety bird sings your song.Ninjas: To see who currently holds this belt, see this belt's section in the Belt Status article.
Sensei Says: "Someone always knows more. Don't let that faze you, you're well on your way."About: After writing your first 10 articles and seeing your name on the Wiki Ninjas blog a few times, it's time to feature you as a Wiki Ninja on the blog.Ninjas: To see who currently holds this belt, see this belt's section in the Belt Status article.
