Description in Detail

This sticker can be used to recognize active participation in a WikiTree project or challenge. WikiTree Leaders can award a "Winner Badge" for winners of challenges. These stickers are a less formal, less competitive way of recognizing the achievements and contributions of project members, both within a challenge and within the project.

To award the Recognition Sticker, project leaders, project coordinators, or challenge leaders can send the coding to WikiTree members to place in their profiles. If you need assistance with coding for a sticker to use for your challenge or project, contact Liz Shifflett or post to G2G.


If you notice problems with this template, contact the Template Project.

Sticker proposed February 2018, see this G2G discussion.
