Introduction[edit]

This group of editors proposes to make sure that all users who deserve a barnstar get one. This does not mean that you must always be on the lookout for users to award and give barnstars out willy nilly! It is simply a community of people who will happily give out barnstars when they feel they are due.

Barnstars[edit]

It is the custom to reward Wikipedia contributors for hard work and due diligence by awarding them a barnstar. To give the award to someone, just place the image on their talk page (or their awards page), and say why you have given it to them. If you are sure the barnstar is appropriate, don't be shy!

The barnstar is not unique to Wikipedia. Some years ago, some wiki-based communities began to give their users awards called barn stars, using a star anchor to represent the concept of the shared work experience, as in barn raising. The concept of the barnstar as a Wiki award was created by SunirShah on MeatballWiki. Web designers were invited to incorporate a similar barn star design into their project as Easter eggs.[1]

Wiki barnstars were introduced to Wikipedia in December 2003. Since then, the concept has become ingrained in the Wikipedia culture. These awards are part of the Kindness Campaign and are meant to promote civility and WikiLove. They are a form of warm fuzzy: they are free to give and they bring joy to the recipient.

While awarding a barnstar, remember to provide relevant and polite text as to why you are awarding it.
