Operation Wikipossible III (2018, March 12 - June 25)
Operation Wiki possible III is a massive project created by our admins like WestonLulz and Positive Elixir Trade for the users of the Big Nate Wiki to help make this site a better operational place. After Operation Wikipossible, our site was incredibly wikitastic, but over the months, it has fallen into a near-death zone, so now it's time to make the wiki strong again!
This wiki must evolve, as Big Nate is a popular collection of comics with lots of infomation that our wiki could really use. We need it! And our primary source of workers aren't just the admins, but the community. That means you. Not him. Not the guy in the corner. You! You can make this wiki a better place! There will be a couple of phases, each focusing on different areas of the wiki, and by the end of it all, this wiki will be triumphant. If we work together, the overall whole will be much greater than the sum of its parts!
And there's one more thing...
That's right! At the end of Operation Wikipossible, prizes will be given to the most hardworking users out there. Prizes that are predictable, but are bigger than anything you could imagine! User rights! Here is how the users will be granted user rights.
1st place will get content moderator rights + discussions moderator rights + chat moderator rights + rollback!!!
2nd place will get discussions moderator rights + chat moderator rights + rollback!!
3rd place will get discussions moderator rights + rollback!
Only you have the power inside of you to make yourself win. The tension is on! Whoever gives the best gets back the best! Let the games begin, folks!
Note: Unregistered users can't earn these rights.
Note: If you are consistently vandalizing the wiki, we will hand over your rewards to the rank below.
Note: If you go inactive, we might not give you your rewards.
Phase 1: The More The Merrier
(Ends June 25)
This is the start of it all! Before we can start getting any of our pages made perfectly, we need a good amount of help. The community. You! Here is what we need to do:
Recruit friends to the wiki. Know any Big Nate fanatics? Tell them about this place!
Build your userspace. Create your profiles, get talk pages set up, and make sure the wiki knows what kind of editor you are. Maybe you can make a blog post to introduce yourself. This let's users know how good of a user you are. Every admin approved blog post you create after March 11th will earn you 12 points.
Have an account on Youtube, Twitter or Facebook? Spread the word on any websites to rack up the users.
Most users from Community Central are always new and looking for interests. Ask them about Big Nate and they just might come here.
If you find a wiki that is related to the Big Nate Wiki, just let WestonLulz, Positive Elixir Trade, or another admin know, and we will request an affiliation with them!
Rewards: If you invite a user over here, and you and the new user can verify that you invited him/her over here, the newbie is awarded 250 bonus points and after they have 40 contributions, we will award you 250 points as well! However, both of you won't get the bonus if you can't verify. We just want to see if you have invited an active member willing to contribute.
With more users, more help. Co-operation is a crucial factor for our wiki!
Phase 2: Short to Long
(Ends June 25)
In order to have a popular wiki, we need good amounts of information. Can you fix up these short pages and make them longer? You can make less-trafficking articles longer as well.
Click here to help the short pages!
We also could have more pages. For every administrator approved page you create, you get 15 points, but it is recommended that you notify the admins in person. Otherwise, they might miss it!
Note: For every contribution you make after Sunday, March 11th, will earn you one point. The leaderboard will be updated every few days (or weeks). Badges earned after March 11th will also count towards your score with each bronze being 10 points, silver being 50, gold is worth 100 and the platinum badge is 250!
Phase 3: The Less, The Merrier
(Ends June 25th)
This wiki doesn't take vandalism lightly. You can help us by monitoring the wiki as well! Each genuine report you make on a vandal will earn you 32 points!
Phase 4: Fun + Games = Good
(Ends June 25th)
In the mix of contributing, you can also create a forum game! Each active forum game that you make via the Fun and Games board will get you 20 points!
Phase 5: Calm over Conflict
(Ends June 25th)
Sometimes, it can be good to have a good understanding in communication. For every conflict between users that you can resolve on your own, you earn 60 points!
How the point system works
If you don't already understand the point system, you can read the pointers below.
The contribution points will override with everything else, so if creating an admin approved page is a contribution, you earn 16 points. 15 for the page, and 1 for the contribution.
Even though vandalism counts as contributions, being blocked will count as negative points. If you are blocked, you lose 1 point for every hour. For example, if you are blocked for exactly 3 days, that's 72 hours and 72 points lost. It always rounds up to the nearest hour. It never rounds down, so if you are blocked for 2 hours and 1 second, you still lose 3 points. A maximum of 672 points can be lost from one block.
Obviously, we do want to accomplish something by the end of this operation, so if we can't get to it in time, only first place survives to get Rollback. Here's what this wiki needs!
8 more active users
1 active Forum Game
Note: The users already with user rights are in charge of this project.
Note: For every warning and reminder we have to give you, you lose only 8 points.
Note: You can view the Leaderboard by clicking here. It may be outdated but we are constantly keeping everything under control.
Note: Admins may not get any rewards from this operation, but they will be of an inconvenience to your rank as they can earn points as well (Except the main host, Positive Elixir Trade), all the more reason to try and beat them!
Note: You will not appear in the leaderboard if you haven't contributed after March 11th.
Note: Anyone who asks for user rights during this operation will be blocked for 3 days.
We know we can make the wiki awesome! Let's GO! :D -The Admins
