Achievement/Pointsgaming Rules:

Q: What is Achievement/Pointsgaming? 

A: It is the act of making posts on a wiki that are generally useless merely for the badges and score.

Achievement/Pointsgaming is best described as a user of a wiki flooding the site with unneeded edits for the competitive nature of appearing on the leaderboard. This contributes to several issues which include but are not limited to:

  • Spam
  • Needless/Pointless Edits
  • Poor Categorization
  • Confusing and poorly written pages

Examples of pointsgaming include but are not limited to:

  • Creating new categories
  • Adding categories to articles that dont need them
  • Editing an article repeatedly saving in between each change
  • Adding multiple pictures to pages that aren't necessary

Examples of legitimate edits that are not pointsgaming:

  • Making multiple edits to one page and saving all of the changes at the end
  • Adding categories that actually make sense to the article
  • Adding relevant pictures to pages that match with the information provided

All punishment regarding pointsgaming will be taken up by the individual admin and their discretion.
