Editor of the Week
Editor of the Week is a recognition award for unsung heroes: editors who do excellent work in improving Wikipedia while typically going unnoticed. A recipient of Editor of the Week ideally has one or more of the following characteristics:
- Writes or significantly expands articles on a regular basis.
- Cleans up articles by, for example, adding sources, expanding citations with the necessary information, aligning prose with the manual of style, or improving the quality of the prose through copy-editing (such as making the text more concise and removing redundant wording).
- Serves as notable voice of reason in discussions with other editors.
- Performs behind-the-scenes work, not normally seen by the general community.
While there are many well-known editors who meet these criteria, the intent is to recognize someone less celebrated yet deserving of greater renown. As admins typically have already been recognized for their work, please limit your nominations to non-admins.
To nominate an editor for Editor of the Week, add your nomination to the nominations page. It should be around 100–200 words, describing why the editor should be recognized, including specific tasks and behaviours that are beneficial to the encyclopedia and the community. If accepted, your nomination will be posted to the recipient's talk page, so make it a good one—recipients appreciate knowing the precise actions that you are recognizing!
Once nominated, the clerks for the Editor of the Week program will discuss the nomination, and reach a consensus on whether or not it is accepted. All accepted nominations are placed in a queue for the Editor of the Week. On Sunday evening, a clerk will present the Editor of the Week award to the editor at the top of the queue.
An editor can be recognized as Editor of the Week no more than once in a 12-month period.
Administrators, while deserving, are not eligible to receive the Editor of the Week award.
When discussing a nomination to reach a consensus on its acceptance, please focus on the editor's praiseworthy characteristics and word any concerns as positively and constructively as possible. It isn't necessary for a nominee to be a perfect editor—the Editor of the Week initiative is designed to spotlight the specific beneficial behaviours and actions described in the nomination.

- Update Template:WikiProject Editor Retention/Editor of the Week/Project main page with a new infobox for the current Editor of the Week. The infoboxes are created and stored at Template:WikiProject Editor Retention/Editor of the Week/Project main page/sandbox. Transfer the information from the sandbox to the main page.

The current archive pages can be found at Template:WikiProject Editor Retention/Editor of the Week/Project main page; the next one in sequential order should be created and used for the Hall of Fame ( on Monday) and for adding to the recipients talk page (on Tuesday).

- On Tuesday, add the Template:WikiProject Editor Retention/Editor of the Week/Project main page template to the recipient's talk page. Use the subst: syntax for the sequential archive as specified on the template page.
