It is the custom to reward Wiki contributors for hard work and due diligence by presenting them barnstars. To give the award to someone, just edit his or her user talk page to include the image, and say why you've given it.

The concept of the barnstar as a Wiki award was created by SunirShah on MeatballWiki. It has since been imported into the Wikipedia and now here to the Homestar Runner Wiki.

The following are the barnstars and awards currently in use, in order of creation.

[edit] Community barnstars

Any user can give out one of the following awards to another user:
