NOTE:

Following the discussion on bulk article creation by different community members about using a tool and articles being evaluated by the same volunteer who has created them, we are withholding rewards to Punjabi (Shamukhi) community.

Hearty congratulations to all the communities who participated with enthusiasm.

What exactly is “bulk article creation”?

Congratulations to all the winners and participants and of course organizer :bouquet::bouquet::bouquet:

What exactly is “bulk article creation”?

As the linked discussion says, apparently pnbwiki employed some crude automatic translation from Urdu to mass-create articles to game this contest. The principal user involved is blocked on English Wikipedia for repeated copyright violations. :-/
