A barnstar is a decorative motif found on barn structures in the United States and Germany. Some wiki communities have adopted the barnstar as a symbol of good work, specifically in relation to the metaphor of barn raising as representing collaborative effort toward a common goal. The idea is that a user can be "awarded" a barnstar by the image being placed on the page associated with that user, and thus thanked for their work toward the community.

If someone has awarded you a barnstar, thank you for your efforts!

If you would like to recognize another user for their efforts, simply add the text {{Award|Forum}} to their user page.
