Fulfilled requests[edit]

Terraria for Terraria[edit]

Note: I am not affiliated with Terraria in any way. I simply have extra copies of it in my Steam inventory.
  • I'm curious: why these games? The articles for Terraria and Amnesia don't look too far from GA status as they are. Tezero (talk) 06:14, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
    • Y'know what, never mind. I do want to play Terraria. I'll message you. Tezero (talk) 21:35, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
      • These articles were chosen because they are in the Survival genre and because they need(ed) improvement. --Odie5533 (talk) 04:55, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
        • Ah. Anyway, to other potential takers, I'm doing Don't Starve. I'm not sure if Odie5533 has other copies of Terraria. Tezero (talk) 22:34, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
          • Don't Starve is now a GA. Tezero (talk) 17:57, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Checking up on this request. Tezero, did you ever get that copy of Terraria from User:Odie5533? GamerPro64 17:17, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I did. It's fun enough, though I haven't played more than a few hours yet. Tezero (talk) 17:37, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
@Odie5533: Do you have other copies to give away for this reward, or should I archive it? Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 13:04, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Stanton Foundation[edit]

  • Offeror: Stanton By Your Man (talk)
  • Date offered: 13:11, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Request: Currently, Wikipedia has no article about the Stanton Foundation, the over $200-million offspring of the Ruth and Frank Stanton Fund. Please create a suitable "Start" article about the foundation.
  • Reward: $5 for an appropriate 3- to 5-sentence lede, plus $3 per reliably-sourced sentence of follow-up detail regarding this topic, up to $21.
  • Limit on rewards: Multiple recipients are eligible, but maximum payout will be $26. No rewards will be paid if the article is deleted or merged to Frank Stanton (executive) within 30 days of its creation.
  • Expired: July 4, 2014
  • I would move this request to "Expired requests" since it expired yesterday, but it appears that it was fulfilled. I emailed Stanton By Your Man on how he was going to carry out the reward but I did not get a response from him. I'm not sure what to do. GamerPro64 05:41, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I'd like to quickly point out that my e-mail inbox lacks any notification of being contacted by you, GamerPro64; but regardless, I appreciate this reminder that the offer has expired. By my reckoning, User:Eddymason is entitled to $5 for starting an appropriate 3- to 5-sentence lede, plus $9 for three additional reliably-sourced sentences of follow-up detail. I then calculate that User:The Devil's Advocate is entitled to $12 for adding approximately four additional sentences, although it is a little difficult to determine exactly because of much over-writing of Eddymason's content. This would sum to $26, which was the maximum payout. I will also note that User:Geraldshields11 added a heavy dose of incorrect information, attributing the Stanton Foundation (tax EIN number 133598005) to a doppelganger namesake in Jackson, Michigan, which has nothing to do with the Ruth and Frank Stanton body. If it is not too much trouble, I would ask that this notice (which I've now marked "Expired") stay in place until payments can be authenticated. - Stanton By Your Man (talk) 12:23, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I believe I actually added more like eight sentences. Six in the activities section and two in the history section.--The Devil's Advocate tlk. cntrb. 15:53, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
That is entirely possible. However, with Eddymason accounting first for $14 of the maximum $26, there was only $12 remaining for the additional sentences, anyway. I understand from my financial assistant that the two beneficiaries from this request have been paid via PayPal, so it can be moved to "Expired". Also, just to play devil's advocate for a moment, it may be appropriate to point out here that The Devil's Advocate seems to have been in violation of the Wikimedia Foundation's Terms of Use, which specify:
"...with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation. You must make that disclosure in at least one of the following ways:
a statement on your user page,
a statement on the talk page accompanying any paid contributions, or
a statement in the edit summary accompanying any paid contributions."
Eddymason's edits predated the Wikimedia Foundation's new Terms of Use which focus on paid editing, so that is why I am only mentioning The Devil's Advocate. It seems that a more explicit reminder of the Wikimedia Foundation Terms of Use should be placed on this Reward Board page. I don't feel like a long-enough contributor in good standing to have the authority to make substantial changes to the preamble on this page. - Stanton By Your Man (talk) 12:46, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I reverted my edits. Geraldshields11 (talk) 14:01, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Frank Stanton (executive)[edit]

  • Offeror: Stanton By Your Man (talk)
  • Date offered: 13:11, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Request: Currently, Wikipedia's biography of Mr. Stanton contains no mention of his involvement in setting up anti-Communist surveillance at CBS in the early 1950's and the quiet blacklisting of certain actors and directors. It is a blemish on his record that he later (softly) regretted, or explained that he felt forced to do in order to keep CBS advertisers happy. It's an important enough event that it belongs (fully and reliably documented) in his Wikipedia biography.
  • Reward: $3 per reliably-sourced sentence regarding this topic, up to $15.
  • Limit on rewards: Multiple recipients are eligible, but maximum payout will be $15.
  • Expires: July 4, 2014
Note: it appears that User:Scortato has fulfilled this Reward Board request, and so payment of $15 will be processed soon for Scortato. - Stanton By Your Man (talk) 03:32, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Payment made in amount of $15 (£9). - Stanton By Your Man (talk) 20:07, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Ribbon Alternatives for WP:WPMILHIST and WP:INDIA[edit]

  • Offeror: Chris Troutman (talk)
  • Date offered: 07:36, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Request: Ribbon Alternatives (shadowed, textured, and small ribbons) for the World War Barnstar. Alternatively, a complete single set of ribbons is also needed to represent both the India Star and the related India Barnstar of National Merit. The offerer will judge the entries for suitability to establish if the goal is met.
  • Reward: The Barnstar Barnstar for each complete set. If the same editor completes both, a different barnstar could be awarded for variety's sake.
  • Limit on rewards: One barnstar per complete set for a maximum of two.
  • Expires: 14 February 2015.
Would World War II rib.png work for the small one? If so, I'll try to make others in a similar manner. —PC-XT+ 05:36, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes that works for the small size and captures the idea. The request is for the complete set. Chris Troutman (talk) 07:03, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
I haven't seen anyone make a complete set for the India ones, and felt like making some more ribbons, today. Are these suitable? File:India_Star_ribbon_(shadowed).png, File:India Star Ribbon.png, File:India Star rib.png, File:BoNM - India Ribbon (shadowed).png, File:BoNM - India Ribbon.png, File:BoNM - India rib.png —PC-XT+ 00:14, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
@PC-XT: Yes, those meet the requirements. Would you like a second barnstar barnstar or would you prefer a different award? Chris Troutman (talk) 03:12, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
I am happy with either option. Thanks! —PC-XT+ 15:52, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Claimants PC-XT completed the complete set for WPMILHIST's World War Barnstar. Chris Troutman (talk) 21:57, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
PC-XT completed sets for WP:INDIA's India Star and India Barnstar of National Merit. Chris Troutman (talk) 03:12, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Explore India[edit]

Update: User:Chris troutman claimed the award for the entire original list, and I added a few more. Happy editing! —PC-XT+ 10:26, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Update: User:Green Giant claimed the award for the second batch of articles, improving Mayong (Assam) for a bonus barnstar! I may add more articles, soon, as I migrate... —PC-XT+ 02:00, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Update: User:Chris troutman and User:Green Giant continued to find coordinates and otherwise improve the articles, so I gave them each an India Geography award, as well. The list is getting long, but I may add a few more. —PC-XT+ 09:36, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Stub expanson[edit]

Ah ha, I get what all of these have in common. I might take a shot at one or two of these during the stub competition in December. Sven Manguard Wha? 17:55, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm currently working on the Yellow-spotted Honeyeater article. --Jakob (Scream about the things I've broken) 20:06, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Silgan Holdings[edit]

*Offeror: Cla68 (talk)

  • Date offered: 01:34, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Request: Create an article about Silgan Holdings Inc., a consumer container company with $3.6 billion in sales, ranked #632 in the Fortune 1000, and component of the S&P MidCap 400 index.
  • 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 The article has been completed as requested and the reward has been paid. Cla68 (talk) 07:50, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

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.

  • Expires: 5 October 2012 or when the backlog is less than a month old. Whatever comes first.
  • If you're done, then I"ll go ahead and award. Buggie111 (talk) 00:34, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
  • I was going to review on a daily pattern, but if you give one for each reviewer's total efforts, then I'd rather the award waited till I'd done my full part. :) Wilhelmina Will (talk) 00:41, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Women's rights in Saudi Arabia Needs a Consistent Cite Format[edit]

  • Offeror: Noloop (talk)
  • Date offered: 17:58, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Request:There is a recent peer review: [34]. The main obstacle to GA status, I suspect, is that the citations are a mix of the simple "ref" format, and some other fancier templates. There are about 100 citations, so this isn't something I can (or want) to fix myself. Help needed!
  • Reward: Dunno. I've never done this before. A barnstar? Propose an article for deletion and I'll vote your way ! (Just kidding.) A peer review. Make an offer (not money). Whatever happened to good deeds being their own reward? Let's get the article to GA status.
  • Expires: When GA status is achieved or at 17:58, 11 September 2010 (UTC)Expiration date added by Griffinofwales (talk) Come and join theSimple English Wikipedia. See rules at top.

  • Date offered: 14:38, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Revert vandalism on my user page[edit]

  • Offeror: The Utahraptor Talk
  • Date offered: 00:41, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Request: I'm busy patrolling Recent Changes, and may or may not notice vandalism on my user page quickly. What I want is for anybody that has rollback rights or uses Twinkle to revert any vandalism you find on my user page. Any edit that is made by an IP address, even if it appears constructive, is vandalism, because I always make sure I'm logged in before I do anything with my user page. Also any edit from a new user that isn't a vandalism revert is probably vandalism, too.
  • Reward: I am prepared to offer an anti-vandalism barnstar to anyone who reverts vandalism on my user page. If you revert more than three vandal edits on my user page you will get the user page shield barnstar.

If anyone gives more than 3 reviews then I will give them more barnstars if that's what they want :) The point is, we want these editors to feel important and encouraged.
