Wikipedia:Reward board

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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 (including cryptocurrency), 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.

How to offer a reward[edit]

If you would like to offer a reward such as the ones below, simply add an entry below. Add all the details that you feel are relevant to the reward, in a format similar to this pattern:

===Reward title===
*'''Offeror''': ~~~
*'''Date offered''': ~~~~~
*'''Request''': What needs to be done to claim the award.
*'''Reward''': The reward you are offering.
*'''Limit on rewards''': In the case of possible multiple rewards, any limit set.
*'''Expires''': Date until which your offer is valid. Max expiration date is one year from offer date.
*'''Sign-up''': Person interested in taking on the task. Please provide expected completion date.

In the case of a monetary offer, please specify country currency. Numerous countries use the same symbols.

Please place new entries in chronological order of expiration. See Wikipedia:Reward board fulfilled requests for past rewards.

Yitzilitt. I worked on your draft a bit. Draft:Arlene Levine. I uploaded a photo, added paragraph breaks, and moved links down to the references section. Next step is to find and add an additional GNG passing source. I evaluate 2 of the 11 sources in the article as currently passing GNG, need 1 more, see my comment in the article for details. Step after that is for somebody to read through the GNG passing sources and add as much relevant info as possible. Then after that, hit the "Submit the draft for review" button. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 10:03, 4 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@John M Wolfson, I know this is very late, but the task is, inasmuch as it can be automated, complete. There are a under 200 pages listed at User:Qwerfjkl/UScounties that could not be automatically. If you find any pages not listed on that page that still have wikitable markup, the bot may be able to process it (might not be worth it unless there are a large number). ― Qwerfjkltalk 17:21, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll try to make a dent on these. Retswerb (talk) 06:28, 29 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Having a go at this (although there are definitely some articles still in the category that have already had their descriptions shortened). pinktoebeans (talk) 19:28, 18 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll participate in this. I usually find these long ones annoying, and here's some incentivization. -2pou (talk) 23:13, 18 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There's definitely something buggy in populating this category. A number seem to correlate to auto-generated short descriptions from certain infoboxes (i.e. the auto SD would be long, but someone overrode/customized it with something short, yet it's still flagged), but others I can't figure out. -2pou (talk) 01:02, 19 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To help out people finding the same, there are some opened topics regarding this category at Wikipedia talk:Short description#Template incorrectly categorizing when transcluded and Wikipedia talk:Short description#"Category:Articles with long short description" isn't working that indicate this category can't be fully cleared until some additional changes are made (not sure if it'd be on the category end or the transclusion end). To Luxtaythe2nd: Courtesy ping for SA as the offeror. -2pou (talk) 20:19, 20 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Maybe you could try an (expensive) search like hastemplate:"Short description" insource:/\{\{short description\|[^\}]{100,}/

I'm up to trying for this. 🐶 EpicPupper (he/him | talk) 22:57, 12 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll try to make a dent at this when I can. JML1148 (talk) 23:36, 8 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ditto. I'll go take a look at the category and take care of what I can. Regards, User:TheDragonFire300. (Contact me | Contributions). 08:53, 21 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Let's do this. I'll try to get 25-75 per day. interstatefive  18:06, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well I did about 15 and 3 got reverted (1 with the edit summary "vandalism"), so I may want to stay away from this for a bit. interstatefive  15:28, 10 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Luxtaythe2nd: Just to let you know, the backlog was recently finished. There aren't any articles left in the category. (Not sure exactly who contributed if you're giving out barnstars. I contributed, but only somewhere between 100 and 200 articles.) — PerfectSoundWhatever (t; c) 14:07, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@PerfectSoundWhatever: Alright. I'll close this shortly. Luxtay the IInd (talketh to me) 17:16, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
