Have you ever received a prestigous star page award for your article?. If you wish to get a star page award, read on, to get tips for getting this award.

Getting a Star Page

Wikinut is a great place to write articles.

Getting a star page award is a dream for every Wikinut user. However, let me tell you, getting star page award is a not very difficult if you do the hard work. Here, in this article, you will get simple tips to get a star page award for your next article. You will have to do the hard work for getting this star page award and follow the tips blindly and let me know whether it worked for you or not. However, please note that I do not give you the guarantee that you would receive the star page award after following these tips or reading this article. After all, not every one can get a star page award. On a single day, if there are many articles with such good qualities, it would be difficult for our moderator to award each page as star page. Ofcourse, if you follow these simple tips, your probability and chances of getting a star page award for the article written by you, is increased to a considerable extent.

My Star Pages

So far I have received two star pages award. They are-

1. 4 Most popular tourist attractions in Mumbai
2. Important safety features to be considered before buying your new car

You would be surprised to know that, the first page I wrote in Wikinut was a star page. Ofcourse, when I received that award I never realized that it was a big milestone, as I was very new to Wikinut that time. Without knowing the rules for getting star page award, I got a star page award.

To know more about star pages, please read the article regarding star pages written by our great chief nut.

Tips to get star page award

1. Your article should be original and not copied from elsewhere. It has to be truly a 100% original article.
2. Your article should contain atleast 5 to 6 images. Please note that these images should not be copied from some where else. Using your own camera to capture images is highly recommended. Also, you have to use a highly quality professional camera with good pixels and resolution. Never try to upload images captured from your mobile phone.
3. Your article should at the minimum must contain 500 words.
4. Your article should have good formatting.
5. Your article must have proper bullets, numbering, etc.
6. The tile of the article must be eye catching and such that it should appeal the eye of a reader and induce him to read your article.
7. Not only title, but also content is very important. The content of your article must be original and should contain information useful to a prospective reader.
8. Break the articles into different useful section.
9. Articles must be such that, user reads the entire article and does not skip any of its part.

Including links also helps a person get a star, as does using some bolding or italics (not too much). Having sections is good too.

For sure originality is most important. Many writers here also write for other sites and we do allow you to republish your article here too (as long as it is yours) BUT You should change it a bit to make it more original - at least give it a different title and summary - and always fill in the notes to the moderator to let us know that you just changed an article you already wrote on a different site if that is what you did.

I also write for Yahoo voices and their rules are entirely different. They no longer allow pages with over 500 words, they don't want recipes and are not interested in poems. They also do not like articles written for the purpose of venting about ones life. They also don't allow cussing which is fine with me because I see no need for it. It is hard to get used to Wikinut's rules. Thank you for the tips!

Are you sure about the 5 pictures. I only see one actual photograph on this page besides the two that are stars. Just wondering!

There is no specific guidelines.... It is just an estimation.... a page with single pic or even no photograph may also get a star page award.... if quality of writing deserves it to get a star page award....
