Benefits from the project

This project will make users more competetive and will prevent vandalism with other users.

The contributions will increase alot.

What will happen if they continue? well the same concept will be the same. But this project will improve that. believe me.



The purpose of this project is to award the users of wikipedia with barnstars that are awarded according to their contributions,edits...etc.... The competition will be held online and it will be held every year. The winner with the most wins will get the wikiolympic barnstar. The others who got nominated will get nomination barnstars and the barnstar of the win they got chosen for(most Contributions,most articles which they had made throughout the year.)
