Many editors have long toiled, independently and without much recognition. Respect and gratitude from peers is one of the best rewards an editor can receive. In addition to sending
, you can now nominate an editor to receive an extra special gift in the mail to thank them for their spectacular contributions and help them show off their love of the projects to those around them.
Requirements for participation (Voting, Nomination and Nominator)
All users must:
Voting and Nominating:
Note: WMF or Wikimedia Affiliate staff members or paid contractors should not be nominated through this process.
The biggest reason is because editors deserve it. The Wikimedia projects are enormously popular and useful because of the volunteer time poured into them by amazing contributors of all types whether they spend their time writing, collating, spell checking, patrolling recent changes, helping new editors or countless other jobs. These users frequently go unappreciated, and they're okay with that, but they deserve a bit more where we can! TheWhat are the requirements for someone to be nominated?[ was created with this as the primary motive: getting free or cheap merchandise into the hands of contributors to reward them for the amazing work they've done. It sells (as cheaply as possible) to the general public to spread the brand and has its small margin earmarked to help offset giving merchandise to the community. edit ]Users must: have made a minimum of 50 edits to a single Wikimedia project.have had an account active for a minimum of 30 days on the day of the nomination.not be blocked on any Wikimedia project.have made a continually positive impact on the Wikimedia community.It is not an outright rule but WMF or Wikimedia Affiliate staff members should not be nominated through this process.Will everyone who is nominated get something?[ edit ]
In the end the final decision on who gets something resides with the Wikimedia Foundation; however, we do not anticipate using that authority often. We plan to give as many packages out as we can and have no set date to end the program. For many reasons we may have to decide to pause the program (money, merchandise stock, staff resources etc.).
(rewrite this bit?)Can I nominate someone from the X language Wikipedia or Y Wikimedia project?[ edit ]
Yes! Editors from any Wikimedia project and any language are eligible to both nominate and receive nominations.Why was I nominated?[ edit ]
Ask your nominator! Even when you were nominated anonymously, we ask for a short statement about why someone is awesome and deserves some extra recognition, which should also help you understand what you did right. The general reason is that someone felt that you should be recognized as doing great work on the project(s) and they think that you deserve something a bit extra .Can I nominate myself?[ edit ]
Now that wouldn't be fair, would it? :)Can an editor receive a free t-shirt through this program more than once?[ edit ]
In order to sustain the program as long as possible and to reach as many contributors as we can, we are not able to give a user merchandise through this program more than once. To find out if a person has received merchandise through this program already, please see Merchandise giveaways/Who has shirts .Is this a vote?[ edit ]
No, some people are in the public eye and some aren't, it is totally expected that some people will get tons of +1 supports while some will get none. That doesn't in any way mean that one person is 'more' important or better than the other and they both equally deserve a shirt.Is the Merchandise Giveaways program still happening?[ edit ]
