About the driveEdit

The Reviewing Drive is a backlog reduction drive, which will run from 00:01 UTC on 1 April through to 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2021. The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project; however, only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. This year the drive is focused on the following areas:

More specific notes about what these entail can be found below. Only quality reviews will be accepted; project coordinators will spot-check claimed entries and reserve the right to disqualify reviews that they deem to be substandard. Gaming the system is frowned upon and may result in disqualification from the whole drive.

ScoringEdit

You will receive points for each article/page you work on, based on the schedule listed below.

AwardsEdit

As a token of our appreciation for your efforts, the coordinators will be presenting service awards and barnstars based on the number of articles or pages you improve. The awards will not be cumulative, though, rather each participant will qualify for a single award based on the total number of points they accumulate.

To add a bit of friendly competition, the three editors who earn the most points by 30 April 2021 will be awarded bronze, silver and gold wikis. These will be in addition to the barnstars above.

The coordinators will post awards to your talk page within a few days of the end of the drive once entries have been checked and scores tallied.
