Wikimedians to the Games

Earn points

The selection of Wikimedians to attend the 2012 Summer Paralympics will be based on a points system. The two individuals with the most points accumulated between 20 April 2012 and 30 June 2012 will be invited to attend the London 2012 Paralympic Games. If one of those two people cannot attend, the individual with the next highest number of points will be invited to attend, and so on until two people have been found who can attend. Beyond earning the most points, the selected Wikimedians need to have been credited with at least one Good Article on English Wikipedia and published one Australian disability sport related article on Wikinews.

The points system is:

DYK

2 points for creating or expanding an article that appears as a DYK. The expanded/new article creator must be named in the DYK nomination. A maximum of 25% of a person's total points can be from this point type.

Good Articles

15 points for successfully ushering an eligible article in English or German or French through the Good Article (GA) process as a contributor. (See lists of eligible and ineligible articles for more details.) To receive 15 points, the contributor must have had substantial editorial involvement in the article, and participated in the review. Fifteen points each may be awarded to a maximum of two people where they have collaborated in the production of an article. Where a Good Article results from collaboration of more than two people, those people will be eligible for a proportional share of 30 points. If the article is subsequently delisted, the points will be taken away.

To be eligible, all entrants must submit at least one GA before 20 April 2012 and achieve GA status before 30 June 2012.

Good Article Reviewing

2 points for reviewing a sport related article that is not connected to the Paralympic movement or disabled sport. The purpose of including this is to prevent any potential backlog as a result of people nominating articles related to this content improvement effort. Any article that undergoes a review, with the reviewer's decision being overturned will result in a loss of points. This is only available to articles written in English. A maximum of 25% of a person's total points can be from this point type when combined with featured pictures/sounds.

Featured List

15 points for successfully ushering an eligible list in English or German or French through the Featured List (FL) process as a nominator or co-nominator. (See lists of eligible and ineligible articles for more details.) If the list is subsequently delisted, the points will be taken away.

Featured Article

50 points for successfully ushering an eligible article in English or German or French through the Featured Article (FA) process as a nominator or co-nominator. (See lists of eligible and ineligible articles for more details.) If the article is subsequently delisted, the points will be taken away.

5 points for successfully ushering an eligible article in Chinese or Dutch or Italian or Indonesian or Polish or Portuguese or Russian or Spanish through the Featured Article (FA) process as a nominator or co-nominator. (See lists of eligible and ineligible articles for more details.) If the article is subsequently delisted, the points will be taken away.

Featured Pictures/Sounds

1 point for getting a picture or sound listed as featured on Wikimedia Commons or Wikipedia which can be used to demonstrate how a sport is played, give insight into classification, or be usable for a biography with an eligible article. Pictures and sounds must be of or about Australian Paralympic athletes or officials. A maximum of 25% of a person's total points can be from this point type when combined with Good Article Reviewing. Pictures are only eligible for points once and double points will not be allocated for getting media featured on both Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons.

5 points for taking a picture of Australian Paralympic athlete at an international event and getting the picture listed as featured on Wikimedia Commons or Wikipedia. A maximum of 25% of a person's total points can be from this point type when combined with Good Article Reviewing. Pictures are only eligible for points once and double points will not be allocated for getting media featured on both Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons.

Wikinews

2 points for writing a news article about Paralympic sport in Australia, the Australian Paralympic Committee, or Australia’s preparation for the Paralympic Games and having it appear on the main page of Wikinews. A maximum of 25% of a person's total points can be from points in this category.

To be eligible, all entrants must contribute at least one Wikinews article before 20 April 2012.

Additional points

Wikimedia Australia and the APC may conduct workshops and/or edit-a-thons during the project period and may decide to allocate points for participation at those workshops. Attendance at these workshops will earn entrants 5 points for each workshop up to a maximum of 10 points. Entrants who travel more than 300 km to attend (including from Sydney) will earn the maximum 10 points from attending one such activity. Travel grants may be available through Wikimedia Australia to travel to Canberra to attend these workshops.

Wikimedia Australia and the APC may decide to introduce categories for additional points during the competition period if they are relevant to achieving the aims of the project. Points will be lost for any Good Article, Featured Article or Featured List that gets delisted. This is to protect against collusion whereby contributors may offer to pass good articles for each other to gain points.
