Free TON

Free TON Wiki NEWS

Rules for creating articles:

The requirement is that the article should provide information about technologies and ecosystem of Free TON in simple terms.

Technical articles should explain the topic in plain language.

Articles about companies connected with Free TON should contain information about what these companies do for Free TON. Detailed information about the company is unnecessary.

The author who is going to write an article should provide a brief justification in the Wiki chat with tagging our responsible editors @bivanovsky and @rollie : what questions the article answers and what audience it is intended for.

We present to the authors an updated spreadsheet of needed articles with a separate tab for each language!

Advantages of the new format:

  • now each language can have its own structure and organization of content different from the English version of the Wiki

  • each tab contains links to articles for this particular language, not the original English version

  • a separate tab for each language greatly simplifies the work of review editors, and also makes navigation through the table easier

  • no need to write subheadings with Wiki categories in the table

  • no need to put a “cross” for recently written articles, you just need to remove your username after writing

How to use the spreadsheet?

  1. Suggest the article, necessary in your opinion, in Wiki chat, discuss its necessity and usefulness for the Wiki

  2. If the article is approved by the community, add its title to the column Article for your language

  3. Enter your Telegram username in the column Reserved, next to the selected article (only if the article is not reserved by another author)

  4. After completing the article, add a hyperlink to your work to the column Article (Ctrl + K, insert a link to the article)

  5. Wait for the quality assessment from the review editors (appears in the column Editor comment)

:gem:Dear community members

The extent of your payments for Wiki Renewal Contest depends on the points given to you by the jury.
The final score corresponds to percentages of the amount in the Team Report.

For example, with 9 points, or 90%, and the amount of 1000 TON in the Team Report, you will get 900 TON.

:point_right:You can see the final reward for each submission in the spreadsheet Wiki Costs and Payments.

The results of the #12 Wiki Renewal Contest showed that many translators neglected to approve articles for translation.

Please read more in the pinned message in the working chat and in the announcement.

:point_right:We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the jury can give fewer points for submissions with the translation of not approved articles.

:dollar:About rates and rewards changing in Wiki Subgovernance

Yesterday (03.02.2020) Wiki Members made two important decisions in changing the rates and rewards in Wiki Subgovernance.

Rewriting rate has been eliminated (submissions with this type of work will be rejected by the judges in future contests). Additionally, Copywriting rate was renamed to Content creation in order to more accurately match the type of work being performed.
Learn more

Fair Reward Ratio (FRR) has been introduced in order to offer community members a reward that considers their contribution and real market value of TON Crystal.

FRR is a numerical factor that can be applied to the just completed WRC to offset changes in the TON Crystal exchange rate (rates and rewards were previously accepted according to the rate of 1 TON Crystal = 1 USD).

The FRR value is set in a separate FRR Setup Proposal after the end of the WRC and before the end of the contest voting.

:point_right:If the FRR Setup Proposal is not accepted within the specified period, then it is not effective and the amount of rewards in the WRC remains unchanged.
:point_right:If the FRR Setup Proposal has been accepted, then the WRC rewards must be multiplied by the FRR factor immediately before the WRC rewards are paid (rounding of the
calculated values obtained is allowed for technical simplification of payments).

:exclamation:FRR Setup Proposal is a single-use proposal, which must be taken separately for each WRC.
:exclamation:When preparing the FRR Setup Proposal, Wiki Members should be guided by the actual market value of TON Crystal (in case of exceeding the estimated cost of TON Crystal by more than 20%, such a proposal is automatically invalidated).

:gem:New rules for Wiki Renewal Contest!

On 8 February, a proposal to change the organization of Wiki Renewal Contest was accepted. WRC will last until 28.02.2021 23: 59 UTC . It includes many new requirements. Let’s go through the main ones:

■ The principle of "One submission - one Wiki URL"
Now a submission can contain only one link to the Wiki material (Wiki URL) with the type of work “Content creation” or “Translation”. If a contestant send a submission with several Wiki URL at the same time, the judges will reject it.

:memo:New recommendations for “Content creation” or “Translation” submissions (these points are optional, however, failure to follow them may lead to "Reject"):

  1. Send your submission no later than 5 days before the end of the contest.
  2. Translate only approved articles.
  3. Pay attention to the results of the preliminary review and correct your material according to the comments. Send the corrected application no later than 48 hours before the end of the contest.

■ The reward limit for all submissions of one contestant - 5000 TON.

:woman_astronaut:The jury also have new requirements:

  1. The judge must reject the submission if it does not meet the mandatory requirements of the contest.
  2. The judge must provide a unique comment for each submission. It should be an exhaustive (no shorter than 3 words) review, leaving no doubt that the judge has read the submission.
  3. If there are 3 or more votes with the same comment, the judge will not receive any reward for these votes. If there are 5 or more votes with the same comment, the judge will not receive any reward for this contest.

:exclamation: Jury votes that do not meet the above requirements will not be paid.

■ The amount of the jury’s reward, which is not subject to change through the FRR, is 4000 TON. It will be distributed among all judges’ votes that meet requirements.

:gem:Dear community members!

We are happy to inform you that the submission period for Wiki Renewal Contest lasts one calendar month! You can send your submission for #17 Wiki Renewal Contest right now.
Submission period for "Content creation"or “Translation” ends on 23.02.2021, 23.59 UTC.
For all other types of work - on 28.02.2021, 23.59 UTC.

Now the authors have more time to send submissions and we recommend to use this time wisely:

:small_orange_diamond:Send your submissions earlier in order to receive comments from the review editors and, if necessary, correct the material and send it again. It will help to prevent situations when the author does not have time to correct the work due to the end of the contest and the judges can give a Reject.

Before sending your submission, don’t forget to tag @anesthesia_v in the work chat - she will count the number of characters and check the level of work.
