Wikipedia:WikiProject Wikipedia Awards

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
WikiProject Wikipedia Awards is a project dedicated to helping people develop the creation and use of Barnstars and other awards within the Wikipedia community. These awards are part of the Kindness Campaign and are used to help promote Civility and WikiLove.

The WikiProject Barnstar WikiProject awards

are awarded for substantial contributions towards a particular WikiProject.

Original Barnstar Award Barnstars

are used on Wikipedia to reward users who make outstanding contributions in a particular area. To give someone an award, all you have to do, is copy the code from the table onto the talk page of the person you want to give the award to, and tell them why you have given it to them. There are many types of barnstar to choose from; if you are sure your choice is appropriate - don't be shy!

The WikiCookie Personal User Awards

In the Personal User Awards there is a wide range of awards to choose from, from the "Golden Wiki" award, for users who have made outstanding contributions, to the "Son of Jimbo" award, for users with the last name "Wales". So the next time you think a user has made a significant contribution, or basically anything else, why don't you give them a reward to show your gratitude?

The Featured Article Medal Other Related Awards

In addition to barnstars, there are several other awards as well. While barnstars are generally reserved for a long-standing pattern of excellence, the following awards are more often given to honor specific actions or events.

Almighty Looshpah Service awards

May be self-awarded dependent upon number of contributions and the length of service.

New Awards

If you have a design for a new award, you can propose the award on the project talk page.

It is recommended that new Barnstars be shared at the talk page; many users have posted Barnstars at WP:Barnstars without realizing that their Barnstar idea had already been in place.

If you have a new idea for an award, but don't possess any graphic programs with which to make said award, then you can either:

  • Pick a user from the below list and ask them individually



Participants may use this code: {{User WPAwards}} to get this userbox:

Anyone who is interested in maintaining the Awards page and proposals, and helping out with the project in general, is welcome to add their name at the bottom of the list (Do NOT add your name if you have the intention of only contributing once or twice!) using {{user2|User name here}} ''Optional Comment''
