Rewards are badges that you can earn which will appear in a module on the right-hand side of your profile. There are two types of Rewards: Common Rewards & Special Rewards. Common Rewards can be earned by multiple people by accomplishing the same task, while Special Rewards can only be earned during unique events such as contests, or for performing a universally accoladed task. An example of a Special Reward would be for founding the wiki. Special Rewards are typically only given out once, and afterward they can no longer be acquired.
↑The presence of the New Editor, Unverified, or Non-User Tag on your profile will disqualify you from holding most Common Rewards. Edit articles often & they will eventually disappear.
↑Farming is defined as adding bad categories, making numerous edits when only one is needed, spamming on message walls, uploading numerous unneeded files, or otherwise earning a Medal without making a significant contribution to the wiki.
