Guidelines

Preparation

  • Set-up an event page on local Wikipedia, then put the link to your local event page in the meta contest page. (You can use this well-designed sample page, localized this template is required).
  • Translate the rules into your language. Discuss on the talk page if you need clarification or change of rules.
  • Call a few Wikipedians to join you as local organizers and/or jury members.
  • Post an invitation message on the village pump, mailing list, Site Notice, and community social media channels.

During contest

  • Verify and accept articles submitted to the fountain tool according to the rules.
  • Declare list of Top 3 prize winners at the end of every month.
  • Continue to publicize the event in community channels and encourage participation
  • Coordinate and encourage onsite edit-a-thons.

Best practices for promotion

  • People feel good to know their work is noticed and received with gratitude.
    • Thank participants (through the edit history thank link) for every single article they create.
    • Award barnstars for most active participants.
    • Share interesting articles on FB and Twitter pages for the contest and tag the users who created them.
  • Create a site notice announcement for both logged in and anonymous users.
  • Leave a personal message in talk pages inviting potential participants who have contributed well in past edit-a-thons. Most editors may not have noticed the general announcements and may not have a good understanding of the contest. The personal message will receive a better response if it is lengthy explaining the significance of the contest and how each one can make a difference.
  • Publicize the contest stats, so there is a healthy spirit of competition between communities.
  • Identify topics of interest for specific editors and bring it to their notice through talk page messages. For example, if a user is interested in biology or history, she is more inclined to participate in the contest if she can spot such topics with ease.
  • Add more coordinators, jurors, and organizers, so there is a shared sense of championing for the contest.
  • Be available through various communication channels so participants can clarify their doubts quickly.
  • Post interesting topics above Recent Changes feed so editors can have visibility and reminders to the contest.
  • Post regular updates in the village pump about the contest.
