Wackypedia:Gold star ranking system
The gold star system is Wackypedia's method of rewarding users for good practice.
How to earn gold stars
Users will be rewarded with gold stars for being the primary author of features (both articles and images), but also for various other activities, such as:
- Housekeeping: article cleanup, article categorisation and image tagging, services to the welcoming committee.
- Ambassadorial work: ensuring the good reputation of the wiki is upheld at other wikis, forums, websites etc. For example, managing to get Wackypedia mentioned in a news article or enticing a number of new users from Wikipedia/Uncyclopedia.
- Peacemaker: neutralising/reverting the actions of vandals, including turning a potential vandal into a user.
This list is by no means exhaustive and administrators will award stars wherever they see fit.
