Centiare is calling on contributors to create a new page on Centiare, utilizing all of your best skills in generating original content, applying wiki markup, and designing a beautiful page. You may choose any topic that is a legal entity, which has not yet been created on Centiare. This could include:
- Your Company
- A Non-Profit Organization you admire
- Your Hometown
- Your Favorite Band
- Your Favorite Artist
- Your Favorite Website
The entry must be created in user-protected Directory space.
Entries that are found to have plagiarized copyrighted materials without permission will be disqualified, and the offending materials may be subject to removal from Centiare. That is, please do not copy any text, photos, music, or video from other sources (including Wikipedia) or copyright holders who retain the rights to that material. Copyrighted content may be used only if you carefully obtain express written permission from the owner for its use in Centiare. Frankly, we suggest you create everything yourself; that is, your own research, word smithing, photography, audio recording, etc.
Judges will be comprised of a five-person panel of long-time Centiare contributors, and they are not eligible for the prizes. Scoring will be based on five 4-point grades:
- Quality of content (the writing is factual, well-organized, grammatically correct, and engaging to the reader)
- Use of wiki markup (credit given for semantic tagging, use of wiki-linking to valid pages, headings, infoboxes, and tables)
- Style and beauty (outstanding use of photos, audio, video, tables, graphics, color, backgrounds, etc.)
- Monetization (how well does the page incorporate ways for the author to make money, without being overbearing; this may include marketing contact info, Google AdSense ads, Amazon Associates links, or even actual products or services for sale)
- Overall reader experience (how a first-time visitor to Centiare would react to this page)
With 20 points per 5 judges, the best possible total score will be 100 points.
