...oh wait, that's actually meant seriously?

Well, the reasons for not having barnstars here at Wiktionary should be pretty obvious, they only detract from our actual goal. -- Prince Kassad 02:20, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

The barnstar was deleted by Leftmostcat. However, I think we should go through the RFDO process anyway, just in case there actually is support for keeping this template. (Keep.) --Yair rand 04:07, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Restored by me. I don't care really. Abstain. Mglovesfun (talk) 04:19, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
We are a very small community, so we'll just end up giving this barnstar to each other among 10-15 people, which is sad and pathetic :) (Delete). --Vahagn Petrosyan 04:23, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Keep. @VG then don't give it out to the people who are already motivated. Give it to hard-working newbies so they feel appreciated and begin to be attached to the project. Give it to a semi-active editor that made significant improvements that went unnoticed. Sure a small core of editors is the most active, but that doesn't mean we can't try to help new (or semi-active) editors appreciate more the task of editing. We won't know until we try.
@PK if you think it distracts from building the dictionary, don't use it. If others think it helps, they'll use it. This at least has a chance of encouraging editors to be active (unlike all userboxes which we do ban). --Bequw¢τ 17:39, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Don't delete it with too much prejudice, but there should be a prohibition on creating many more for the moment. Conrad.Irwin 18:27, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Since this image is on Commons, even if this were deleted people could post the image with a comment. We might want to rename it, don't we avoid caps in templates? Mglovesfun (talk) 20:13, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

If we keep this, can we rename it The Only Barnstar?  :-) ​—msh210 16:00, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

I think {{User Barnstar}} would be in keeping with template naming conventions. Conrad.Irwin 16:04, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Actually {{Barnstar}} would be better :) Anyways, I say keep this one and do not allow any further ones to be created. You guys need to add something to give to other users to show your appreciation for their edits. Razorflame 08:48, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
I'd prefer {{User Barnstar}}. It's good to keep the user templates distinct from the mainspace templates. --Yair rand 20:20, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. Let's use it to encourage our editors. —Internoob (Disc.Cont.) 18:52, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Kept. Mglovesfun (talk) 23:07, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
