This page is for the Missing Article Trophy, an unofficial contest from WikiProject Medicine. It is a continuous race over who created the article of greatest medical importance that was still missing in Wikipedia as of July 2008.

These are the rules:
  1. To be eligible for the trophy, you should have created a new article in the last five days that is of higher medical importance than the previous article.
  2. It is allowed to start a new article where a redirect to another topic was previously installed.
  3. For the purpose of this game, a stub no more than a few sentences long that you expanded more than fivefold also counts as a new article.
  4. Although not an absolute rule, your chances of taking the cup are higher when you create a better article. Try creating something at least more than a few sentences, preferably that would be a Start instead of a Stub article.
  5. Again, although this is not an absolute rule, your chances increase the longer the previous winner has held the trophy. This rule will hopefully prevent slow turnover once the going gets tough. If there is a long period without turnover, the contest may occasionally default back to a new beginning, and the last claim will expire.
  6. Any contributor can claim the trophy, and any other member can award the trophy if they think the claim is justified. There are no formal judges.
  7. If you see a great article recently created by someone else, you are allowed to nominate this other person.
  8. Since this is meant to be fun, there should be no drama over this contest, and nobody should intentionally waste his/her time playing this game.
  9. If you are the current owner and you have created a more important article, you can again claim the trophy with the new article. However, as explained above, someone else still has to confirm your claim that this new subject is truly more important.

Claims for the trophy[edit]

  1. April 10, 2014: Mschamberlain (talk · contribs) - Lister's tubercle - short I know but it has been months since this changed hands, and there's a good number of pages pointing to it.
I would have loved to hand it over to you but unless you put in some more contributions to it, it can hardly qualify even for breaking the rules in handing it over to you. Stubs with material more than in your article are generated almost everyday and hence would qualify. I appreciate your efforts nevertheless.
