Please do not nominate users for awards here. Instead, please be bold and give an award to the user you have in mind using the templates listed on pages such as WP:*, WP:WPPA, WP:ORA and WP:PUA. Thanks!
I've come up with an idea for an award given to editors who expand an article 100-fold? This would be counted by readable prose (naturally) and nominations for the award could be posted somewhere like Wikipedia talk:100x Expansion Award. Smaller awards for 50x and 25x expansions could be also given. This also wouldn't could people expanding articles they created (because the creation of the article would expand it by ∞-fold anyway). It also wouldn't apply to redirects and disambiguation pages. What do you think? --Jakob (talk) 20:47, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
How frequently does this kind of expansion happen? I mean, 100x the readable prose seems almost impossible under any other circumstances. Achowat (talk) 02:39, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Great idea. But only to be awarded if expanding text is supported by necessary citations. We certainly do not need to motivate further large-scale cut and paste cribbings, to increase article volume. LeProf 18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:10, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
I'd like to create a "Wiki Warrior Barnstar" - awarded to those who fight to the death for (constructive) edits and are willing to go all the way to the end (within wiki policy of course) to see it through.

Barnstar for combating plagiarism and un-referenced material
Please help me identify the most suitable Barnstars for calling attention to those who help identify cribbed (plagiarized) material, and its close trust-me-its-true cousin, longstanding material without proper attribution. Such unheralded, and even combatively resisted editing effort is central to whatever hope we might have, for Wikipedia to become a reliable source of information for academic use.
