  • If you get a regular article promoted to Very Good Article status, you will get 10 points.
  • If you get a Good Article promoted to Very Good Article status, you will get 5 points.

Further bonus points may be added at the community's discretion. Likewise, penalties can also be given.

Scores[change source]

Scores for the Article Cup are kept in the table below. For the first four columns after your name, you should simply enter the value of what you have done - i.e. if you have got one Regular Article to Good Article with a WP:HAVE Bonus, put a "1" in the respective columns. If you got the same again, just add one to the current number. For the "Other Bonuses" and "Penalties" boxes there should an explicit value. The final column will be calculated for you at 18:00 UTC each day.
