The international logo

From January 15 to February 5, we organized a special editing contest exclusively for inserting references in articles where they lacked. The participants were advised to cover the articles which had no any references, but also they could have edit articles with small amount of references, in order to back up the content of the article itself. Four people participated in this event and added 3,226 references in 1278 different articles. Those four participants, as intended, got prized based on their contribution of added refs and covered articles.
