Wikipedia:Incremental service awards (Ribbons)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Incremental service awards are a simple way of acknowledging an editor's level of contribution based on two specific benchmarks: the number of contributions the editor made to Wikipedia and the length of time they have been registered. Academic interlocutors have described Wikipedia's service award schema as a way to award the self. The incremental service awards extend that tenet.

Unlike the Standard Unofficial Service Awards these awards are used to allow the users to have awards in-between the Major service awards.

Please remember that time spent with and number of edits to Wikipedia are not indicative of the quality of an editor's contributions, or of their diplomatic ability. Service awards also do not indicate any level of authority; "veteran" editors have no more authority than "novice" editors.

Levels[edit]

Currently there are 20 incremental service awards, 4 levels each for the first 5 service awards. The images for further incremental service awards still exist (although the templates are not available)—check this page history for their use.

To keep the validity and status of the major service awards, a ribbon is the only variant of the incremental service award.
