The reward board is an informal page where users who want a specific task related to Wikipedia (such as the promotion of an article to featured article status or the editing of an image) can offer a reward to editors willing to take on the task. The execution and details of the transaction are the responsibility of the participating parties, and the reward can be monetary, goods (books, cookies, etc.), barnstars, or tit-for-tat editing (like improving another article).

Reward board is similar to the defunct Bounty board; however, instead of a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation, payment is made directly to a specific editor.

The Wikimedia Foundation is not hiring contributors and no payments are made by the Foundation. This is purely a page for editors to offer rewards to other editors. Challenges may remain open for a maximum duration of one year. After that period of time, the challenge will be moved to expired requests; however, the author of the challenge may repost the challenge with a new expiration period. The aim of this policy is to keep the board clutter-free, ensure editors are available to fulfill such challenges, and to ensure the challenges are still valid.

See Wikipedia:Conflict of interest for information about monetary compensation and possible conflicts of interest.

OK, I changed the expiration date.Marvin Ray Burns (talk) 02:05, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Kurt Vonnegut photo[edit]

  • Offeror: Yaksar (let's chat)
  • Date offered: 19:22, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Request: While the author Kurt Vonnegut has a very iconic appearance, there are apparently no free images of him besides a photo taken during his military service, which is currently in the article. While we are able to use non-free images "where no free equivalent is available or could be created that would adequately give the same information", I'm not sure if we are prevented from doing so by the existence of the army photo. Regardless, it would be a great solution if someone could find a free photo taken of him with his iconic appearance. He's spoken at numerous public events, so I think it may be likely that one exists somewhere.
    • @Yaksar:Would this image work out? It doesn't have him with wavy hair but he is rocking his mustache. GamerPro64 02:42, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
      • It would definitely be better! It does not, however, seem to meet the copyright requirements for us to use here. Are you the owner of the photo by any chance?--Yaksar (let's chat) 04:35, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
        • I am not. I looked up Kurt Vonnegut on Flickr in hopes that there would be a replacement for it there. I thought that it being on Flickr would allow us to upload it here. GamerPro64 18:21, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Pinging the ever amazing and startling We hope. The force is strong with this one. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 09:05, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Let me start looking--many times photos of authors were sent out for their new books, for interviews and other appearances. We may be able to work from that angle. We hope (talk) 15:42, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Yaksar, Crisco 1492 See if this one works: File:Kurt Vonnegut 1972.jpg We hope (talk) 16:41, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
  • And this is why we should just give you the keys to the encyclopedia here and now. Fantastic! — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:30, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Just want to say that you don't need to give me the barnstar because I do this (or at least try to) for anyone who asks. We hope (talk) 23:49, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
