I'll do my best to prove that I didn't get that Wiki:er badge for nothing.

Oh and what about misspellings? Do they count into the rating?


----Just to make sure I do not take someone elses Idea away: I am planning a Wiki on Les Paul (The Guy^^)

(By the way, I thought we had to write 5 articles to get a badge, not 3 as stated in the first post?)


That's right - we will edit that!

Do the two articles I've allready written in the last two days count? =)
I got a load of bands and stuff to write about yet, so I'll be taking part ^^


No they don't count! I am looking forward to your band articles! biggrin.gif

No worries - I think we still have the text for you! smile.gif Just a second

I am not completely sure what you wrote - but if you click "recent changes" in the bottom of the wiki, then click your article, then click "History" in the header menu. You can then see a bunch of different versions of your article - hopefully you can restore ... unsure.gif

Nope, couldn't restore it :/ Seems like the version when I had written wasn't saved somehow...only the very first version when I had the correct picture and headline were. Well, thnx anyway smile.gif I suppose this wont happen to anyone else then since I must have done something wrong..

Awesome contest smile.gif
And awesome prizes!!! blink.gif

Good luck to everyone, can't wait for the articles smile.gif

I'm not sure I'll be participating though, I'm busy working on my website, writing songs, the new job is taking a bit of time and I have big plans for my "practice agenda" which I will spend quite a bit of time on smile.gif

I will however write for the wiki as well, when I get the chance, but not in a competition mode where all I do is wikiwriting biggrin.gif

As I said in the other thread. I believe old articles before comp date don't count and if you upgrade them you will get the points difference from before the competition. So if you created an article worth a 2 before comp started and changed it to add more detail to a 5 article you'd get 3 marks rather than 5.
