The Eastern Barnstar[edit]

Hi, SarekOfVulcan! Thank you for editing Wikipedia!

I noticed that you added a new barnstar, The Eastern Barnstar, to the list of barnstars at Wikipedia:Barnstars. This is a perfectly fine barnstar, except for one thing: Barnstars usually have templates so that users can simply and easily place the barnstars on pages via the template without having to find the barnstar image in question and figure out what to do with them; however, this barnstar does not have an associated template. Would you mind if I created a template for this barnstar, so that it can have one and, therefore, potentially be more useful to other editors?

Thank you again for editing Wikipedia!

@Noah Kastin: Sure, feel free. Thanks! --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 18:54, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
@SarekOfVulcan: I have now made the template, which is located at Template:Eastern Barnstar. I'm going to add it to the list at Wikipedia:Barnstars now. Noah Kastin (talk) (🖋) 19:00, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Barnstar of Existence[edit]

I created a barnstar that can be sent to users who contribute to existence related articles, or more humorously, to send to users who exist (after all, you can't contribute without existing).— Preceding unsigned comment added by ZLEA (talkcontribs) 17:50, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

@ZLEA: Nice! I see that you've posted it over at Wikipedia:Personal user awards, which seems appropriate for the award that you created. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it! Noah Kastin (talk) (🖋) 12:05, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Art+Feminism Barnstar[edit]

We created the graphic for an Art+Feminism barnstar, but never went through this process of formally creating the barnstar and template. This barnstar is to be given to editors who make contributions about art and feminism. I don't know how to create the actual template, or if I was supposed to do that prior to this request... but if not, can someone help me, or point me in the right direction in how to create that template.

Art+Feminism Barnstar 2

--Theredproject (talk) 23:12, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion!
I support the creation of this template, but only if its main purpose is for rewarding efforts during the Art+Feminism edit-a-thon. If it is meant to be for rewarding more general efforts about art and biographies of women, we have the Barnstar of Fine Arts and the Bio-Star for those, so I would not support adding an additional barnstar just for covering those two topics, as it would be somewhat redundant.
Thanks again for the suggestion!

Minnesota Barnstar[edit]

Hi, Paul2520, and thank you for adding the Minnesota Barnstar to the the topical barnstars list!

I noticed that you entered File:Seal of Minnesota-alt.png as an alternate image for the barnstar. While this is perfectly fine, placing the image in the Barnstar 2.0 column seems misleading, as the seal is not a barnstar. Therefore, I would like to propose that we find some way to place the seal in some more convenient area of the table (if there is one) and/or create a Minnesota Barnstar 2.0.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you!

Noah Kastin (talk) (🖋) 17:49, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

@Noah Kastin: Your logic for removing it from the table is reasonable - it does appear a bit out of place, not being a star and all. I've updated Wikipedia:Barnstars to suggest the Seal can be an alt image. I had used the seal to give a MN award to a couple editors. I'm not entirely opposed to a second version of the award, but I'd be more inclined to make a Seal-based star as the alt image. = paul2520 (talk) 02:40, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
@Paul2520: How about a picture of File:Original Barnstar Hires.png with File:Seal of Minnesota-alt.png super-imposed over the center of it? Noah Kastin (talk) (🖋) 07:23, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
@Noah Kastin: That would be perfect. I would be happy to do this in GIMP - I can either get to it late tonight or else in a couple of days. = paul2520 (talk) 16:09, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
@Paul2520: That sounds good! I'll be interested to see what the final product looks like. Noah Kastin (talk) (🖋) 22:38, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
@Noah Kastin: how does this look? File:Minnesota barnstar with State Seal.png. I tried playing around with the coloring to make it look more rustic, but I think this version was best. Essentially just the superimposed image, with a few touch-ups. = paul2520 (talk) 16:40, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
@Paul2520: That looks amazing! That's actually exactly what I had imagined the barnstar would look like. Let's use that! Noah Kastin (talk) (🖋) 03:54, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

The Feminist Barnstar[edit]

I would like to see such a thing as ‘The a Feminist Barnstar’, which should be awarded for making edits to articles about women. There is a graphic that I have created.

The graphic for ‘The Feminist Barnstar’. Please create an appropriate template once done.

Thank you. ———Peppa Pig the Second (talk) 10:43, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

SVG Edition of The Template Barnstar[edit]

New Edition of Template Barnstar

Hi, I created a new edition of the Template Barnstar, for the old one is low resolution. But I couldn't learn the words in the old editon (for its low resolution). Is it applicable to Template Barnstar?--HFWMan (talk) 09:02, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

@HFWMan: Thanks for putting up this new version of the award!
If you're asking if your picture would be acceptable as the 2.0 version of the barnstar, then I would say yes, I would expect so. However, if what you're asking is what the words in the original version said, I can't help you with that. I'm pinging Smurrayinchester, the creator of the original barnstar, to see if he can help you on this matter.
If you have any more questions, please let me know.

@Noah Kastin: Thanks for reply, I has asked the question about the words of the old version template barnstar, but no one knew (and the author hasn't logined for long time). Alright, actually it needn't any words, with the words being introduced, the font of the words will be a new problem. if current version of my work is acceptable as the new version, then thank you very much. --HFWMan (talk) 01:22, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
@HFWMan and Noah Kastin: The text is All your base are belong to us, but it was deliberately made small enough that it was unreadable - I just wanted some generic text that didn't mean anything. Smurrayinchester 12:26, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
@Smurrayinchester: Thanks for letting us know what the text in question is! It's always nice to know these sorts of things.
@HFWMan: If you're fine with your version of the barnstar, I would say: go for it, put up the barnstar! If you need any help adding it to the barnstars list, I'm happy to help.
