Wikichievement for contributors to TFC articles

I have no ideas for pictures, names or descriptions now, but it makes sense that we provide an incentive for people to work on TFC articles. ~ lhavelund (talkcontrib) 01:48, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Keeping editing and updating the Team Fortress Classic section of the Wiki.

Lemme blow some life in to this achievement. Stunned.png TheNobleScout 01:14, 9 January 2012 (PST)



The Haxtinguisher
For careful watching and removing hax pages (such as autotranslated pages).

With the last incident of someone having used Google Translate, I notice how hard it was to track down the pages and delete them... So an idea for rewarding this work. Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png Tturbo (T/C) 16:01, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I like dis new chievement. — Wind 00:30, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Template Blacksmith

Tf win hydro noenemycaps.png

Template Blacksmith
For making many approvable, good and funny userboxes for the TF Wiki.

I made this one because it would be good for the userbox makers since theres no achievement for making these and alot of the users (including myself) likes to sprite up their userpages. I have another one in mind, but I dont wanna bring it up before you guys are agreed to this Wikichievement. The Noble Scout R9t4 20:22, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

The Userboxes are a very minor part of a purely aesthetic part of the Wiki. They are hardly worth a Wikichievement (Even though I would get about four of this one right now for my userboxes) --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 02:21, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Remember Firestorm that i said userboxes. Which mean no one knows how many userboxes it needs to be, so it means that it must be alot of them. The Noble Scout 17:30, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
These sort of wikichievements shouldn't be encouraged. Creating tons of userboxes doesn't benefit or improve the actual wiki in any way. It's nice to decorate your userpage with them, but we'd much rather spend your time contributing to the wiki instead of creating countless arbitrary userboxes. Sorry :( User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 17:37, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, then i'll make a better suggestion later since this one was abit of a failure :S The Noble Scout 18:19, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Painful Karma

Second degree burn.png

Painful Karma
Create an article that some will like & some will dislike.

I made this one to test a series based on grouping. As in making an article criticized by 2 groups. The first group liking/praising the article, and the second group... eh, not so much. If you don't understand, then basically imagine making an article about a recent TF2 edition. 30 people so far view the article. 15 of them like it and 15 of them don't like it. But more people will probably dislike this Wikichievement than like it :P The Great Irish Warload 00:45, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

What is this rewarding? Making an article that splits the community or that isn't worth editing? Not a good Wikichievement at all. --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 02:21, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
So I guess I was right about this receiving more hate then like :/ The Great Irish Warload 03:14, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Too easy to get, just making one like Benjamuffin did with Demopan and you are done. The Noble Scout 17:25, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Hot Contribution

Makin' bacon.png

Hot Contribution
Create a article on a new released item before any other user does it.

The thing about this little wikichievement must be on english to make it a competition between the users who makes articles to the TF Wiki. Its a good idea i thought, but i need your meanings and to achieve this it must be either a new item or map etc.... or just what the description says. The Noble Scout 13:42, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

There's already the Frontier Notice Wikichievement that does that if I remember the description correctly. Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png Tturbo (T/C) 15:07, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, true... Killicon home run.png The Noble Scout (T/C) 21:12, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
This would just encourage users to spam and make a useless page. The Wikichievements should not generally have solid requirements or it will emphasize spamming and not being userful. Also, to both of you, please reduce the size of your signatures, there's no reason for them to take up so much room --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 21:37, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Help other users to improve the Team Fortress Wiki with constant tips and coordination.

For those who'd rather help other users and teach them how they can contribute positively to the Wiki. The title/text may not be clear, so those can be modified later.  –  Duel RED.png Epic Eric Duel BLU.png (T | C) 00:06, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

I Like this wikichievement, something that Recruiter doesn't count. But another name would make it even more awesome. Killicon ambassadorhs unused.png Tturbo (T/C) 01:23, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Generous Giver
For giving out multiple weapons, hats, tools, or even games, to members of the Wiki who are in need of them.

I'm not sure about the description. But this could be useful for those who'd like to give out things. GeminiViRiS User GeminiViRiS Doubleface.jpg Talk · Contribs 23:13, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

I don't see how this is related with the Wiki.  –  Duel RED.png Epic Eric Duel BLU.png (T | C) 23:27, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
I want this to be real.... I give away stuff all the time, lol --Stevoisiak 02:15, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
Me too, there are some wiki users that really deserve it  – Awesome.png Ohyeahcrucz[T][C] 02:17, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
I agree with EpicEric. If there were achievements for general purposes, this would be worthy. Alas, these are wikiachievements, and strictly wiki related. --Nihilus0Backpack Lugermorph.png(contribs) 02:19, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram minus.png Oppose I see no purpose in this. It's not contributing to the Wiki to give away stuff --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 02:26, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram nope.png Nope Why doing that, it will be very generous by others to get and give stuff, but how can you relate Wiki workers to this one, GeminiViRiS? Stunned.png The Noble Scout (T/C) 08:15, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, yes, silly me for not making an achievement not relating to the Wiki. But I thought I'd throw an idea out here for the community of the Wiki. See, in the IRC chat, some folks are clamoring that they don't have "X" game for pack "Y". Whether they're cheap or can't afford it, it's always nice to give rather than receive. —GeminiViRiS User GeminiViRiS Doubleface.jpg Talk · Contribs


How do you determine who deserved achievement, and who's not?--User Kost 2.jpg  ( T|C) 07:41, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Been active in one special section in the Wiki.

Well, since ive failed in my other Wikichievement stuff, maybe i should contribute this one; the point in this was to be to the editors who works in a spesific section all the time. Take me for example. Im working mostly on the Hats section on the Norwegian Wiki Part. Its just an idea and i dont think it would be any good but at leaset worth a shot.

The Trivia Remover
For those who spent there time taking out bad and pointless trivia.

I know it's a bad name for it but I'm horrible at naming things.
Anyway I've seen people removing those pointless trivia in the recent log all the time so I made this. If that isn't good I made another one.
Tf win well minimumtime.png

Article Dominatior
For those who spent there time cleaning up article making it smooth to read.

Again bad with the naming but award to those who cleaned up article making it easy to read. Painted Batter's Helmet C36C2D.pngViolencejr123 21:52, 2 August 2011 (PDT)

Pictogram plus.png Support I like them, but do you think we could somehow combine the two? To me, they're both about cleaning up the pages, just more specific. User M-NINJA Signature.png 21:55, 2 August 2011 (PDT)
Hmm I will see. Painted Batter's Helmet C36C2D.pngViolencejr123 21:58, 2 August 2011 (PDT)
Tf scout flag cap grind.png

Article Dominatior
For those who spent there time cleaning up articles to the point were it's smooth and easy to read.

Well I was thinking of just keeping this one since taking out trivia is cleaning up an article like you said. Painted Batter's Helmet C36C2D.pngViolencejr123 08:41, 3 August 2011 (PDT)
Pictogram plus.png Still Support I like it. I just have one last suggestion, maybe the use scout achievement "Round tripper" icon? User M-NINJA Signature.png 15:31, 3 August 2011 (PDT)

Walk someone through a tutorial.

Reword description if you want. I basically want this to be for those who end up providing more help on a topic then the tutorial that was made for that area. e.g. i found the painted hat variants tutorial a little confusing, another user who has done it before, goes through and helps step by step with a successful result.

» Cooper Kid (blether·contreebs) 02:15, 30 August 2011 (PDT)

Out of all of these, "We can fix it in post" is really the only achievement worth implementing. The others are either far too simple (Classic Editing) or they promote something we don't want (Wiki crime and punishment). --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 15:58, 23 September 2011 (PDT)

The first one seems abit unachieveable because you got to redo a HUUUUUGE article. From my point of view, it's not a wikichievement, but a goal. The second one on the other hand is a co-op achievement...Look around! We do this everyday!

suggestion - template related achievement

Just something to say "hey, thanks for the help with the really difficult templates, without your help i would have been stuck". Many times i have been making templates but there has been one bit that has tripped me up which someone just manages to pull the solution out of thin air and it works perfectly. would be nice to show gratitude for something so significant especially when its help with highly used templates.
