Wikimedia Australia/Activities/Editors Challenge

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

An Editors Challenge is a friendly competition/contest for creating and improving Wikimedia content.

How it might work:

  • Challenge Topics are developed
  • A small group of people organise the selection and announcement of topics, and evaluate the submissions at the end
  • A Challenge runs for one week, and they are held once every four-to-eight weeks
  • Entrants should sign their intention before the start of the Challenge, and at the end, submit diffs/indicate which article(s) they worked on for the Challenge
  • Winner(s) are sent a small prize by WMAU (if they want!) (e.g.: t-shirt, book, voucher, sticker prize, free sock admin account)
