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:
- 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.
