Imranqazi90[edit]

Status:    Done
Why is this user awesome?

Imranqazi90 joined 2 years ago and are currently an admin on the Kashmiri Wiktionary. They are doing a great job in maintaining the Wiktionary with more than 9000 edits. Literally it is their hardwork which keeps the project working. I would therefore love to nominate them for a T-shirt. I hope this T-shirt will make them feel good.

  • Oppose. Please send the user a Barnstar or your personal thanks, or buy them a gift out of your own money. Please do not give away donors money on these little known and little attended internal gifts. SilkTork (talk) 17:38, 25 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    SilkTork, not trying to change your vote but a little confused with your rationale. Merchandise giveaways don't just apply to big wikis. --Ferien (talk) 19:38, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Hi Ferien. The wording is "little known and little attended internal gifts" not Wikis. This gift offer is known to only a few people. Nominations have been made by only a handful of people who were aware of the gift. It effectively has been a personal gift from one person to another, paid for out of donors money. BarnStars are free, are well known, and for most recipients are a badge of honour and recognition. اِفلاق should give Imranqazi90 a BarnStar, or if they feel that Imranqazi90 deserves a gift, they should pay for that themselves.

    @SilkTork Thankyou for your view. I do respect your view about using donor money in place where it is needed most. Some people may think of this as a waste of money, but if this encourages editors to continue to contribute, I won't align with the view of it being futile. Some small Wiki's are existing due to the hardwork of few users. A small token of love from the foundation creates a positive impact. Without exaggerating, the work Imranqazi90 has done on Kashmiri Language projects is extraordinary. Since this program is active, I don't feel any obligation not to nominate them. However, your view is a valid point, you can raise such issue in a better place about closure of the Merchandise giveaway program. But I think the oppose is totally out of context here.

Noting that this request is still open because we have not hit the two support requirement threshold. If one more person supports, we can close this request as successful. Best, Vermont 🐿️ (talk) 03:19, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
