Introducing the Sonic Wiki Bounty Board! Contribute & Get Rewards!


Dreadknux

Recommended Posts

The Sonic Wiki (nee 'Sonic Database') was a brand new section of the site we launched over a year and a half ago, and while we have been encouraged by the positive response to it (despite it being only in Beta), I wanted to find ways we can encourage the worldwide Sonic the Hedgehog community to collaborate and help build the best resource that we possibly can, together.

With that in mind, I am introducing a new Wiki-adjacent feature, called the 'Sonic Wiki Bounty Board'. Here, Sonic Stadium staff will highlight specific areas of the Wiki that need urgent attention, and will offer rewards for users who help complete the assignments and populate the entries with content. You can find it here:

https://www.sonicstadium.org/wiki-bounties/

At the moment, we are offering Sonic Stadium account rewards for all users who contribute - no matter how big or small their involvement! Because we are currently in Knuckles Week, the current Bounties relate to Knuckles-related entries and requests for information. We are offering Rings and exclusive Knuckles Week-themed Achievements as rewards for these particular Bounties, but over time we may add other kinds of rewards too, in order to spice things up.

Looks cool, doesn't it? If not a bit empty. Help us out!

Anyone who is willing to help muck in with some info (and has a Sonic Stadium account) are welcome to come and contribute - if you're interested in helping with a Bounty, simply go to that particular Bounty page and make a Comment accepting the mission. All we ask is that:

  • You have a very good grasp of (written) English language
  • You do NOT, under any circumstance, copy-paste, plagiarise or otherwise 'steal' content from other wikis or sources (in other words, the information you write up needs to be entirely in your own words)
  • You are open to following an evolving Best Practice guidelines document for the Sonic Wiki

Our Sonic Wiki is not built on any kind of Wiki-style platform, so editing and creating content will not be familiar to those who are used to working with Wikipedia and similar outlets (however, it is built on the SSMB platform, so if you are familiar with writing posts on our forums then you will be absolutely fine here). I recommend taking a look through our Page Structure & Elements guide in order to help make the Wiki pages the best they can possibly be.

The more people edit, create and get familiar with this Wiki, the more I want to listen to your feedback and tweak things in order to make it even easier and better. I will be making some changes to the overall design soon based on responses I gathered from our Annual Reader Survey earlier this year, but if you want to add anything (good or bad) then you can let me know via DM on this website, or through the 'sonic-database' channel on our Discord server.

Who knows, we might even get out of Beta soon!

Thank you all in advance for your help and interest! And if you'd rather read wikis than take part in editing them, that's totally fine too! And thank you for your interest in doing that as well!

Onwards an upwards!

I know the other commentors are saying this as well, but just a heads up that the bounty link doesn't work. It states that we don't have access to that page.

I was looking forward to seeing what I could chip in on. I'll take any excuse to do some typing (I find it cathartic to spend a lot of time typing).

Haha! Whoops, that's embarrassing! I realised I forgot to set permissions so that everyone could actually see the Bounty Board!

This has been fixed now. Please let me know if there are any other issues (good job we're still in beta!!)

Very cool! Thank you so much, I will reply with more detail to your DM about this as well when I get a moment! :) We can keep updates to the records themselves on the Bounty pages, if that's okay!

Looking good and appreciated! I think this might need some text for context as to what it is, but always appreciate new contributions!

Generally speaking, we do have a guidelines and structure doc (both linked in the OP above) but in these early stages I'm not going to be too strict on this stuff. Better to have people contributing in good faith and we can work together in establishing and enforcing a decent content policy!

Hey, @Dreadknux , I was wondering if once Knuckles week is over with, or maybe even before, I could add a bit to the Rouge wiki page? I see that it is almost completely barren, and we can't have that for one of the best girls!

I keep trying to create a page for everyone's favorite Echina Mina the Mongoose but something always goes wrong.

Guess I'll stick to stubs that exist?

That’s a smart idea!

And, to whom it may concern 

im already working on Entries for Silver, Blaze and Marine, but I want to see if there is any holes in the other ones, too

I have now added a prototype section to chaotix, that will presumably be changed to link to the corresponding prototype when it's page is made!

Nothing stopping you from working on other records or information! The Bounty Board is there to mostly encourage people to work on the pages that the staff thinks are highest priority (or want to incentivise contributions to in honour of a themed week or something). You can add stuff to a Rouge page, a game page, whatever you like, whenever you like - it's just that the Bounty stuff will (at present) be the ones that will specifically offer rewards (I am looking at ways I can offer rewards for general contribs to the wiki though).

@Dreadknux

When do the bounties end?

This week I'll be going over the contribs and closing/rewarding users who have taken part! I'm also going to be going over general contribs as well (that haven't been assigned a bounty) and create some rewards for those too :)
