A beautiful trophy.
Coveted by editors worldwide

After ten months of creating, expanding and reviewing articles, the 2023 edition of the WikiCup, the English Wikipedia's annual editing competition, has concluded.

The new champion of Wikipedia is ... (drum roll) ... myself? I never saw that one coming — especially considering that I was the last person to qualify in Round 3, as well as the last in Round 4[1] — but yes. I, BeanieFan11, am now the 14th champion in the WikiCup's history; second place honors went to Thebiguglyalien, followed by Epicgenius in third.

Over the course of the competition,[2] editors achieved 60 featured articles, 15 featured lists, six featured pictures, 397 good articles, over 300 Did you know entries, and 120 In the news articles; the competition also led to 545 good article reviews and 298 featured article reviews, so clearly this resulted in great improvement to the encyclopedia!

@BeanieFan11: Just for context, I think Dr Salvus now goes by the username Wikipediæ philosophia, should you want to add it to the article.
Anyway, I once again want to give my congratulations to the winner and every other participant involved, and thank Sturmvogel 66 and Cwmhiraeth for hosting the competition. Despite performing quite poorly, I really enjoyed my debut, and I'm definitely looking forward to next year's edition! Oltrepier (talk) 10:17, 7 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
