Expired requests[edit]

Water bear[edit]

  • Offeror:···Vanischenu「m/Talk」 21:34, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Date offered: 21:34, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Expires:1 April 2014
  • Objective:Make the article "Tardigrade" appear on Main Page.
    Mission briefing:Practically, there are two methods by which this can be accomplished,
    • Option 1:Raise the article to FA status.
    • Option 2:Expand the article 5 times.
  • Reward:A brand new surprising barnstar! In addition to this, two conventional barnstars (you can predict them!) will be given to each user. (Thus, 3 barnstars for each winner). And above all, to be honored to receive a barnstar from Vanischenu!
  • Limit on rewards: Only for upto 5 editors.

What does "Expand the article 5 times" mean? I ask because it's probably too late to have the article at FA status by April 1 – not that I plan to work on this article. Tezero (talk) 21:40, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

@Tezero: The 5x expansion refers to the Did you know rule A4 which is about expanding the prose of an article to five times what it was within about five days. In case you didn't know, the Did You Know section is usually found on the main page, just below the featured article of the day. At this point the Water Bear article has 10392 characters of prose and that would mean expanding it to 51960 or more characters. Green Giant (edits) (talk) 00:47, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Recently passed GAs are also eligible for DYK. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 03:27, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Elevate Kongregate to B or higher[edit]

  • Offeror: Topperfalkon (talk)
  • Date offered: 14:45, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Request: Elevate Kongregate to B-class or higher. Review must come from WP:VG for B reward Whilst its importance is considered Low, I think it's the best example of that genre of websites (The genre being free online flash games with optional purchases).
  • Reward: The Original Barnstar, or any other applicable Barnstar from Twinkle's default set. For GA status or higher, an award of a single Steam game from my inventory is available (currently includes titles such as Deus Ex, Dota 2, Bioshock, XCOM, Ravaged), barnstars, and food/drink.
  • Limit on rewards: Maximum of two reward winners for GA+ tier
  • Expires: March 30, 2014

3500+ Dogecoins for Dogecoin[edit]

  • Offeror: Tractor Tyres (talk)
  • Date offered: 16:08, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Request: Stuck with a slow CPU miner? Just want some extra DOGE? All you have to do is get the Dogecoin article to good article status.
  • Reward: 2500 3500! dogecoins
  • Limit on rewards: In the case of multiple awards, the reward will be raised to 3500 4500! dogecoins and be split accordingly.
  • Expires: 1 March 2014
EDIT: The reddit user "ineedmoredogecoin" is willing to add an extra 10,000 DOGE to the reward.[1]
Just so the viewers at home understand this, how much does this all equal to in dollar form? GamerPro64 17:10, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
In dollar form the original reward is about $0.51, with the extra reward it raises to about $2.69. It's not too much, but the main part of this is the fun of getting some DOGE. Tractor Tyres (talk) 17:14, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
As of Jan 29, a reward of 13,500 Ð is about $20. --Odie5533 (talk) 04:59, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Comcast Business[edit]

  • Offeror: Cla68 (talk)
  • Date offered: 01:34, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Request: Create an article about Comcast Business, the business-to-business enterprise within the Comcast Corporation. It is a separate entity, accounting for $2.4 billion in sales in 2012. Current content found at Comcast#Business_Services may be helpful but is very detailed and needs more general encyclopedic coverage.
  • Reward: The Original Barnstar and USD $75, payable direct to editor by check or PayPal, or equivalent donation to a humanitarian charity of winner's choice.
    • For a stub with 3 independent references (e.g., similar to Work N Gear), award is the barnstar.
    • For a start-class article with at least 10 independent references (e.g., similar to Aeroflex), award is the $75 gift.
  • Limit on rewards: One barnstar and one $75 prize will be rewarded to the editor(s) judged to have contributed the most to each goal.
  • Expires: 31 December 2013
    • Comment If the article is created, there is a substantial likelihood that I shall consider listing it at AfD. We normally cover subsidiaries within the main company, even if they are legally separate entities. I suppose I should also say that although this board was kept at MfD, I shall be watching very carefully any request here that offers money. just as I watch other paid editing. DGG ( talk ) 19:45, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Following up, the article was in fact created, and, as is often the case with paid editing, half of it was advertising: a list of customers. It is not encyclopedic content which businesses use a communication company's services . I removed that part. I'm looking at the rest. DGG ( talk ) 20:47, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Rather unfair to say that "half of it was advertising: a list of customers", when clearly it is hardly an unprecedented practice on Wikipedia. DGG, shall we expect your equally faithful work soon on the following articles?
Now, those are several hundred cases of Wikipedia articles presenting nothing different than what the Reward Board author produced. DGG elected to call it advertising and remove it in this one instance. What about the hundreds of other instances? Shall we just let those go, or do we have a new WikiProject:Removal of customer lists to launch? - I'm not that crazy (talk) 03:30, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Sometimes the individual members of the customer-listings are appropriate, sometimes they are not... the key is whether the specific customer-provider relationship is WP:NOTEWORTHY, rather than mere mutually-WP:ABOUTSELF (let alone *pure* WP:ABOUTSELF which is not good enough). There is a difference between Comcast bragging about how Joe Schmoe is one of their customers (or equivalently about Joe Schmoe bragging on his L33T new weberneteevee connection), and an article in the Wall Street Journal about how Comcast just won a trillion-dollar-contract with the Venusians. Well, okay, that one would get a dedicated article, probably. Some local-government-customers are Noteworthy.[2][3] Some suppliers are Noteworthy.[4] Some employees are Noteworthy.[5][6] But yes, not every Comcast customer is noteworthy, and WP:SPIP applies. Hope this helps. 74.192.84.101 (talk) 23:56, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Request: I require someone to add a significantly large quantity of information to the article Birmingham Gay Village, preferably historical information about the area.
  • Reward: A copy of Civilization V (PC game), practically new.
  • Limit on rewards: One, to the person who announces their intent to add the content and adds a significant amount.
  • Expires: 30 November 2013

Suburban Express[edit]

I'd rather see an uninvolved admin re-close that because I think this is an inappropriate action (and I do have a potential COI because I have sent emails with someone who claims to represent the company). Biosthmors (talk) pls notify me (i.e. {{U}}) while signing a reply, thx 09:16, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Biosthmors: I consider myself uninvolved, as my only connection to this posting or Suburban Express is that this posting is tied to the MfD that I closed. As to me not being an admin, I completely fail to see why that would matter. Sven Manguard Wha? 21:24, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
It just seems very dubious/controversial to me at the moment. What is the logic for hiding this? Thanks. Biosthmors (talk) pls notify me (i.e. {{U}}) while signing a reply, thx 04:38, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
My logic for holding this is that it was viewed as so controvertial that it lead to both the bounty board and the reward board being listed for deletion. At the MfD for this page, this specific posting was focused on by the MfD nominator and some of the commentators. Clearly the community sees it as out of line, so this close was an extension of that MfD. Sven Manguard Wha? 20:09, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
I disagree. That was just the silly anti-paid editing lobby whining. And I don't see why you say [c]learly the community sees it as out of line. Biosthmors (talk) pls notify me (i.e. {{U}}) while signing a reply, thx 12:01, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
We will agree to disagree then. At this point I have defended my position as best as I can, and it is clear that neither of us will be converted to the other's position. If it bothers you enough that you feel it warrants the effort, feel free to ask for a second opinion at WP:AN or some other board you view as appropriate, and alert me to the thread. Otherwise, I'm not sure what else to say. Sven Manguard Wha? 21:43, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Marvin Ray Burns' user page[edit]

  • Offeror: marburns
  • Date offered: 25 Sept 2012

  • Expires: Sept 25, 2013

Do you have an Erdős number?[edit]

  • Offeror: bobrayner (talk)
  • Date offered: 18 September 2012
  • Request: This is a slightly different one. Put simply, I have a (low) Bacon number but I think it would be cooler to have an Erdős number (and, hence, an Erdős-Bacon number). This is just for personal gratification, so we don't need to treat the criteria too strictly - I think it would be sufficient to cowrite a substantial article with an editor who has an Erdős number, and perhaps take it through a peer-review process such as GA or FA. This offer is only open to editors who have an Erdős number. I like writing articles on commerce, transport, Africa, and history (especially Ottoman history, maybe a little economic history/taxation &c) and I have some article ideas on the drawing board, but I'm open to suggestions. What do you think? Would you cowrite something with me?
  • Reward: A glittering array of awards awaits:
    • An appropriate barnstar
    • A donation of $100 or €100 to a charity of your choice
    • The undying respect of your peers (Subject to availability. No cash alternative.)
    • If you want to "swap", and get a Bacon number (and, hence, an Erdős-Bacon number) for yourself, I'd happily to collaborate on that in some way - all suggestions welcomed.
  • Expires: 18 September 2013.

Expand List of Wikipedia controversies[edit]

  • Offeror: SB Johnny on behalf of The Wikipediocracy Fund
  • Date offered: 15 April 2013
  • Request: English Wikipedia now has a new List article about the various Wikipedia controversies that have taken place over the years. The List is organized chronologically, by the date when the controversy either happened or became notably covered in reliable sources. We wish to see the List expanded with additional bullet points, where each bullet point is an independent event, and the editor must write at least 50 words about the event, and properly reference at least one credible, reliable source to verify the event and demonstrate its notability. Candidates for this prize will be registered Wikipedia user accounts whose entries are submitted under just one account (no use of multiple accounts). The judges will disqualify any added bullet points that fail to meet the 50-word minimum, or that insufficiently document the content with legitimate reliable sourcing. The judges will also disqualify any user who attempts to "game" the challenge (such as: duplicating entries on the same controversy; deleting the work of others and trying to re-add it as his/her own; plagiarizing other sources; etc.). Note that some Wikipedia articles already have a "Wikipedia controversy" section. Adding these to the new List are fair game, but the edit summary must clearly indicate that the content was based on material already in Wikipedia, not newly-generated content. Also, if you enter copied material that was covered only in a non-English Wikipedia, your edit summary must clearly indicate that your content was based on material translated from another Wikipedia, not newly-generated content.
  • Reward: Every qualifying contributor to the List will receive a coveted Internet Barnstar. The contributor adding the second-most qualifying bullet points will receive $75 (USD) from The Wikipediocracy Fund. The contributor who adds the most qualifying bullet points will receive $150 (USD) from The Wikipediocracy Fund, along with the Oddball Barnstar. Cash awards may be received via check or PayPal (to recipients who are willing to disclose their identity to Wikipediocracy judges), or the awards may be donated to a non-profit humanitarian charity of choice.
  • Limit on rewards: No limit on Internet Barnstars. Limit of two (2) cash awards.
  • Expires: 31 May 2013. Judges will issue all the awards before 15 June 2013.

Commons uploads categorised[edit]

This is Yes check.svg Done, but commons:Category:Birmingham Gay Pride doesn't seem to exist. (Drop a note on my talk page either here or at commons:User talk:WhatamIdoing with a sentence to describe the subject and a guess at where it should be placed in the cat tree, if you'd like me to create it for you.) Also, I changed the links in your list to go directly to Commons, which will save you a little trouble when you go look at these in the future. WhatamIdoing (talk) 02:20, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

The Line[edit]

  • Offeror: BDD (talk)
  • Date offered: 23:58, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Request: "The Line" is an episode of Heroes, and it appears to not meet WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. Normally, I'd go through its incoming mainspace links to retarget them to The Line (Heroes) (currently a redirect), so that the article can be moved there and the current title can redirect to the dab Line. However, my wife and I are watch Heroes on Netflix and I want to avoid spoilers. My request is that you revise these incoming links. There are fewer than 100. Please contact me on my talk page if you're interested, and I can give you some tips on the quickest way to do this. You can easily complete it in under an hour; it's just a bit tedious.
  • Reward: One shiny Special Barnstar, or another appropriate one if you'd prefer.
  • Limit on rewards: This is a one-off. Priority will be given to the first editor to volunteer on my talk page, which should also avoid duplicated effort.
  • Expires: I'll do this myself if we finish Heroes first. That should happen in the next week or two.

  • Offeror: WWB Too (talk)
  • Date offered: 16:21, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Request: Help add topic-specific interviews from the C-SPAN Video Library to External links in relevant articles. To help with the process I've created a table with a list of articles that don't currently have links to relevant interviews. For each article to add a link to, I've included a completed template to add the correct interview link to the External links section. The table is here in my userspace: User:WWB Too/C-SPAN ELs
    • Please note: the entries labelled "Doing" are those where the interview link needs to be added. For those labelled "No CongLinks template in use" or "No C-SPAN template in use" you'll simply need to paste the template I've prepared into the article's External links. For those labelled "Template in use; C-SPAN now added", the {{CongLings}} template is already included in the article's External links but the C-SPAN parameter (c-span=|) needs to be completed. In these cases, if you replace the whole existing template with the one from my table, please take care not to overwrite any new parameters that may have been added.
  • Reward: Editors adding at least one (1) link are entitled to display this barnstar-inspired personal award. Editors who adds a minimum of ten (10) links are entitled to display the award and may be eligible to receive a free C-SPAN baseball cap (click links for images). Contact me on my user Talk page for more details.
  • Limit on rewards: In the case of the C-SPAN baseball cap, we can only send to U.S. addresses. 15 hats available. Limit one per individual editor.

    Due to partial and unreliable collection of labour statistics (and a huge informal sector) it's not practical to give exact, trustworthy stats on employment in Hong Kong in the 1960s.

Arado Ar E.381[edit]

GA achieved! It's such an obscure and un-realized craft that I'm not sure if FA is even feasible. One would have to have access to the actual Arado documents, blueprints, etc. BUT, I was glad to have helped to get it this far. NielsenGW (talk) 12:31, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
No way. I'm positive A-class is the next rung on the ladder for this great article (Cheers!), and up beyond that is the star of FA, maybe even part of a GT or FT. Who says obscure planes can't get FA? Obscure Russian ships are doing it (see this). WikiCopter (radiosortiesimageslostdefenseattack) 01:20, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
I think it's going to A-class now. WikiCopter (simplecommonslostcvuonau) 00:08, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Collectibles as rewards for several kinds of improvement to articles related to Firefly/Serenity (sci-fi)[edit]

A sample BrowncoatAward barnstar
Check back every week or so for updates; any duplicate FF/S items I end up with will be added here as additional rewards.
  • Offeror: — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs.
  • Date offered: 10:43, 24 September 2010 (UTC).
  • Updated: 08:20, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Request: Be the principal improver and "process shepherd" in moving an article relating to Firefly (TV series) and Serenity (film) at least one assessment class or reviewed status higher (as detailed below), and get incidentally very relevant reward items with real collectible value. I'll pay for the packaging and shipping (including bag-'n'-board or sleeve-'n'-toploader, as applicable). In addition to specific, non-virtual rewards covered below, all completed reward levels also include the {{BrowncoatAward}} barnstar illustrated here (or a different barnstar if requested and it seems appropriate, for those who already have BrowncoatAwards). Photos of reward items available on request (use e-mail; I can't just post them here, since they're copyrighted and it wouldn't be covered by fair use). Alternative bounty: For anyone who is entirely anonymous and does not want anyone to have contact information for them, I'll be happy to make a donation on your behalf, per the Wikipedia:Bounty board, in the approximate value of the offered reward items instead of sending you the items.
  • Rewards: There are different rewards for different levels of article improvement. I "upgrade" the offered rewards with addtiional and/or better items as I accumulate more duplicate things I don't want to bother eBaying away.
  • For "Featured Article" status: A limited edition (of 5000) Serenity: Better Days #1 variant cover comic book (it eBays for around US$25 as of September 2010). From Dark Horse Comics, in association with the California Browncoats club and the Kids Need to Read Foundation. It is a charity fundraiser edition, exclusive to the 2008 San Diego ComicCon, with a variant cover featuring wrap-around pencil art by Will Conrad. Condition: NM. Plus 2 Serenity promo trading cards (Inkworks 2005, serial numbers SP-1 & SP-CEE), NM-M condition, I'd probably say M, but my eyesight isn't 20/20 any longer; worth about $1-3 on eBay. There is only one of this reward!
  • For "A" class up from "GA" (or from "B" if "GA" is skipped): A "Serenity: The future Is Worth Fighting For" promo post card, NM-M condition, with blue, moody art of Mal & River. Value probably around $5. Plus 2 Serenity promo trading cards, SP-1 & SP-CEE, as above. There is only one of this reward!
  • For "Good Article" status up from "B": The World of Serenity, a 6-page trifold full-color promo brochure with cast & Whedon bios, a really nice full-page group shot of the Big Damn Heroes, and "Serenity" movie logo in large size. 8.5 × 35.5 in. (8.5 × 11 in closed), condition: VF+ to NM, sells for around $20 on eBay as of October 2010. Plus 2 Serenity promo trading cards, SP-1 & SP-CEE, as above. There is only one of this reward!
  • For complete "B" class up from "Start"/"C": 4 Firefly/Serenity promo trading cards (SP-1 & SP-CEE, as above, plus 2006 P-1 & P-2, all in NM-M condition, with P-2 being worth $2-6 on eBay, the rest $1-3). There is only one of this reward!
  • For "Start"/"C" class up from "Stub" or non-existent: 2 Serenity promo trading cards (SP-1 & SP-CEE). There are over 20 of this reward available. Browncoat is a great candidate, as there's almost no real information there, and a great deal missing (there's an entire notable-in-itself documentary film about BCs, a network of regional BC websites, the annual, international "Can't Stop the Serenity" global charity fundraiser, etc.)
  • Un-limitations: I want to be as incentivizing as possible.
  • Except as noted, these rewards apply to any article directly connected to the Firefly/Serenity 'verse, including articles about the episodes and comics or other media, about Browncoats or "Can't Stop the Serenity", about actors or crew, about production or other involved companies, whatever.
  • A "tag-team" of two or more editors can each qualify for rewards where there are multiple rewards available (and they actually appear to be working together and not edit-warring. >;-)
  • Rewards are cumulative on request: A new article all the way to FA (new/Start/C to B to GA to A to FA would net 2+2+4+2 (12) cards, plus whatever non-card stuff I add to the GA bonus, and the ltd. ed. comic, but only if you specifically request the duplicate cards (since you might not want them, and they can be used as incentives for improving more articles).
  • Anyone with concerns about my trustworthiness with regard to sending you the rewards can examine my eBay feedback score (e-mail me from my WP user page and ask for my eBay ID).
  • Just let me know on my talk page that you intend to claim one or more of these bounties, and for what article, and (eventually) when the goal is reached. I'll review article history and I'm not going to deny a reward just because you weren't the only person improving the article; I just need to see focused effort on improvement. If you have any questions regarding if a contribution will qualify please contact me first.
  • Definitions of status/assessment levels:
  • "'Featured Article' status" and "'Good Article' status" don't include restoration of delisted FA's or GAs, unless the work to restore the status is quite significant and mostly single-handed (e.g., the article Serenity (film) itself, down to "B" class as of this writing, probably doesn't apply, since fixing it looks like a big group effort and not much to fix, really).
  • "'A' class" means assessed as that class by a relevant, broad project (WikiProject Film, WikiProject Science Fiction, WikiProject Biography/Arts and Entertainment, WikiProject Books, etc., as applicable, just not WikiProject Firefly which has a conflict of interest), or by an independent peer review.
  • "Complete 'B' class" means satisfying all 6 of the explicit B-class criteria as defined at WP:ASSESS#Grades (B -> More detailed criteria -> [show]); I'll be the judge of that, regardless of project assessments or lack thereof - projects too often hand out "B" assessments to articles that don't even meet half of these criteria.
  • "'Start' class" and the rarely used "'C' class" class both mean the same thing here: A basic but well-written article that stands okay on its own, with no dispute/cleanup tags, all facts reliably sourced, and not something so fanwanky/crufty that it is likely to be deleted or merged; essentially, something good enough for WP:DYK, but not fulfilling all "B" class criteria yet. Brand new articles qualify in theory, though it's hard to think of a notable topic within scope that has no article yet. One thing that does qualify is re-development of a summary section at another article into its own full article like Malcolm Reynolds was from List of Firefly characters (do not attempt this with a minor character or other cruft, or it will just get merged back into the source article where it belongs). River Tam (presently a redirect) is perhaps the most obvious candidate, as long as one is aware of the WP:NOR and related issues that led to the article being blanked and redirected to the extant summary (a lot of cleanup will need to be done on the history-preserved material, or a new article written from scratch).
  • I reserve the right to impose a waiting period (up to 1 month, or until resolution of disputes if any apply) on fulfillment of any reward if I suspect that something bad may happen like an AfD, the undoing of an article split, or a dispute about a newly-granted status/assessment grade. (That said, I want to give these items away, as I have too much stuff, and eBay is too tedious for things that aren't worth a bundle.)
  • Limit on rewards: See each reward for availability of collectibles. No limit to the number earnable by one editor. I'll update this listing as rewards are claimed and new rewards become available.
  • Expires: January 1, 2011 (tentatively)
