I think we need more barnstars on the Doom Wiki (Ryan W is the only person who has been given one so far, although he's certainly deserved it :-). However, Barnstars are a wikipedia thing. Maybe we could create our own Doom-themed variation on the theme? Fraggle 22:50, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

US$0.02: While I am extremely flattered to have a star on my user page, I seriously doubt that our level of activity has yet reached "critical mass" to support this kind of systematized heraldry outside the main space.  If I'm in the minority on that opinion, fine... I would suggest not basing it on anything in the game that has quantitative "rank" (weapons, monsters, Marines from the novels), for reasons that I hope are obvious with so many gamers in attendance.  Maybe instead of stars, we want spheres, like all the extra spheres in Skulltag.  We could have an ouch-face sphere for technical contributions, a bug-eyed v0.4 trooper head sphere for documenting minority ports/platforms (I would award Fraggle such a sphere for writing things like this), a dead trite/tick/arachnotron for fixing bugs, and so forth.  Of course, this is easy for me to say, because to make them look good would require a graphic artist far above my own ability.    Ryan W 02:21, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
