Revision as of 20:01, 15 November 2013

The wiki is currently running a raffle for Conquest of Paradise, Europa Universalis 4, and Crusader Kings II. This contest will run for approximately two weeks, from 2013-11-15 to 2013-12-01.

Users can enter the contest by contributing to the wiki. Various actions will give raffle tickets; the more tickets you amass, the more likely you are to win.

Rules

  • All entrants must register an account on the wiki
  • The entrant must have access to the email address they've defined for their account, as prizes will be sent via email
  • Any vandalism will cause all raffle tickets earned by the entrant to be forfeit
  • The admin (Meneth) decides whether a raffle ticket has been earned based on the guidelines below
  • Entrants must read the style guidelines in order to ensure their edits are up to the wiki's standards
  • Administrators and halfops cannot enter the contest

Earning tickets

The following actions will earn you a raffle ticket:

  1. Improving an article by such an extent that it is reassessed at a higher level. See Category:Articles by quality for information on how assessment works
  2. Significantly improving an A-class article
  3. Adding a strategy guide to a page in Category:Needs strategy guide. Note that the strategy guide must either be your own work, or another person's work used with permissions and significantly reworked to comply with the wiki's style guidelines
  4. Rewrite an existing strategy guide to conform with the style guidelines
  5. Correcting 10 spelling, grammar, or minor factual mistakes on the wiki
  6. Replacing two 192x128 flags with 800x533 versions or above, to a max of 1000x666. Note that the replacement must not be upscaled, and must be similar to the in-game flag
  7. Verifying two pieces of uncertain info in a page that needs verification. If the page only has one piece of uncertain info, verification will still give a full ticket
  8. Write a page about an important modding concept
  9. Other significant improvements to the wiki

Reporting completion

For most of the above, no report of the action is necessary. Just make sure to put a descriptive edit summary.

Correction of spelling/grammar mistakes has to be reported to Meneth with a link to each error fixed. This can be done at User talk:Meneth

If you believe you've made a significant contribution ("Other significant improvements to the wiki"), this can be reported at User talk:Meneth.

All earned tickets will be listed below on a per-user basis. There is no need to notify Meneth of you entering the contest (except for the specific contributions mentioned above); he assumes everyone wants to get the chance at winning a prize.
