Third contest

Prizes

Contest avatar

Users can enter the contest by contributing to the wiki during that time span. Various actions give raffle tickets; the more tickets one amassed, the more likely one is to win. Fixed prizes are also given out to the top three contributors by number of tickets.

The three users with the most tickets will each get a discount voucher for the Paradox Web Store. This can be used for any combination of digital goods (limited to at most one copy of each individual product) in a single transaction, but cannot be applied to physical goods, new releases or pre-orders. They will also receive a special forum avatar and icon (Wiki contest icon.png). These are unique to major wiki contributors.

  • 1st place gets a 50% off voucher - Won by Voy (127 tickets)
  • 2nd place gets a 30% off voucher - Won by Lordlory95 (120 tickets)
  • 3rd place gets a 20% off voucher - Won by Mitchz95 (40 tickets)

Further winners will be selected using a random number generator. The prizes will be drawn in the order listed below. An entrant's chance of winning is proportional to the number of tickets they've obtained. The top three contributors by number of tickets are also entered in the raffle.

A total of 9 prizes will be raffled off:

  • 3 copies of the Hearts of Iron 3 Collection (raffled individually) - Won by Voy (127 tickets), Lordlory95 (120 tickets), Mitchz95 (40 tickets)
  • 3 copies of the Victoria 2 (raffled individually) - Won by Voy (127 tickets), Lordlory95 (120 tickets), Glee8e (5 tickets)
  • 3 copies of the Age of Wonders 3 base game (raffled individually) - Won by Lordlory95 (120 tickets), Mitchz95 (40 tickets), Korodikrisz (10 tickets)

It is not possible to win more than one copy of each game, but it is possible to win one of each.

Winners will be contacted by email soon (the same one associated with the Paradox account).

  • Paradox Wikis moderator SolSys decides whether a raffle ticket has been earned based on the guidelines below.
  • All entrants must register an account on the wiki; anonymous edits are not counted unless they can be clearly connected to a registered user (E.G., in cases where the user was accidentally logged out)
  • The entrant must have access to the email address they've defined for their account, as prizes will be sent via email. Note that by default the Paradox Account email address is used
  • If you have changed the email address of your Paradox Account since registering on the Paradox Wikis, you should update your email address on the wikis. Otherwise, it may take longer than normal for you to receive your prize(s) if you were to win
  • Only edits after the start of the contest count
  • Any vandalism will cause all raffle tickets earned by the entrant to be forfeit
  • Entrants should read the style guidelines in order to ensure their edits are up to the wiki's standards. Edit summaries are encouraged, but not required except where otherwise specified

  • Any action on the list undertaken between the start and the end of the contest will earn tickets.

Earning tickets

All tickets are provisional until the contest starts and edits made in advance can change the values below

A large variety of tasks will earn you tickets; everything from updating pages, to writing strategies, to modding information, to creating pages on new features. All tasks are listed below.

Anything that involves the creation of a new page or section assumes that the resulting page is rated B or above, and has no resulting ambox requests ({{rewrite}}, {{cleanup}}, {{copy edit}}, {{expand}} and {{stub}}).

Any task that gives "at minimum" a number of tickets can give more than that number if the quality and/or thoroughness of the writing is higher than expected.

The first three tasks give more tickets the more outdated the page/section/infobox is. The base ticket amount is multiplied according to the following table:

Version Multiplier
2.2 1
2.1 2
2.0 3
1.9 4
1.6 5
1.5 6
  • Important: When updating an article/section/infobox do not remove versioning tags. Instead, set the version number to the updated version. This will make it stop displaying until a newer version is released.
  • Version 1.7 was never officially released and Version 2.3 is the current version.
  • Ensure that pages are up to date. See outdated pages for a list of potentially outdated articles. If no changes are necessary for the page to be considered up to date, a justification must be written in the edit summary or on its Talk page. This gives a base amount of 1 ticket per page updated
  • Ensure that page sections are up to date. See outdated sections for a list of pages with potentially outdated sections. If no changes are necessary for the section to be considered up to date, a justification must be written in the edit summary or on the page's Talk page. This gives a base amount of 0.25 ticket per section updated.
  • Ensure that infoboxes are up to date. See outdated infoboxes for a list of pages with potentially outdated infoboxes. If no changes are necessary for the infobox to be considered up to date, a justification must be written in the edit summary or on the page's Talk page. This gives a base amount of 1 ticket per 10 infoboxes updated.
  • Improving an article by such an extent that it is reassessed at a higher level. See Category:Articles by quality for information on how assessment works. This gives at minimum 2 tickets
  • Write a page about an important modding concept. This gives at minimum 4 tickets
  • Other improvements to the wiki give tickets based on the judgement of the person assigning tickets. Content additions, structure improvements, and grammar improvements are prime examples of contributions that'd fall under this

Reporting completion

For most of the above, no report of the action is necessary. A descriptive edit summary is enough. Please only contact the overseeing moderator about tickets if you've got any complaints about the # of tickets given, if 72 or more hours after your actions you've yet to receive any tickets, or for the circumstances described below. Questions about anything else are welcome at any time and will be answered as soon as possible.

All earned tickets are be listed below on a per-user basis. There is no need to notify overseeing moderator that one is entering the contest (except for the specific contributions mentioned above); it is assumed everyone wants a chance at winning a prize.

If you believe you have made a significant contribution ("Other significant improvements to the wiki"), or that your ticket-earning contributions have been missed, this can be reported at User talk:Dauth.

Earned tickets

Fractional tickets are only used for accounting progress towards an entrant's next ticket. In the raffle, ticket numbers are always rounded down.

Notes
  • When updating content remember to also update the accompanying version tag (do not delete them).
  • When updating old articles refer to changes from past patches as well (not just the last one).

Reporting completion

For most of the above, no report of the action is necessary. A descriptive edit summary is enough. Please only contact Meneth about tickets if you've got any complaints about the # of tickets given, if 72 or more hours after your actions you've yet to receive any tickets, or for the circumstances described below. Questions about anything else are welcome at any time and will be answered as soon as possible.

If you believe you have made a significant contribution ("Other significant improvements to the wiki"), or that your ticket-earning contributions have been missed, this can be reported at User talk:Meneth.

All earned tickets are be listed below on a per-user basis. There is no need to notify Meneth that one is entering the contest (except for the specific contributions mentioned above); it is assumed everyone wants a chance at winning a prize.

Earned tickets

Fractional tickets are only used for accounting progress towards an entrant's next ticket. In the raffle, ticket numbers are always rounded down.

Notes
  • When updating a section remember to also mark the new versioning.
  • When updating old articles refer to changes from past patches as well (not just the last one).
