edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for History of Wikipedia:
  • Expand lead section, should really be two or three paragraphs at least
  • Re-structure it: all the old stuff is in named sections, stuff from the "middle" of the history is in sections numbered by year, and the newer stuff is... not really there at all. Done?
  • Fill in what's missing – more than that must have happened in 2006!
  • review each area for changes regularly (eg: major policy development, major changes elsewhere in the community, wikimedia fouhdation, sister projects and landmarks, software and server farms, controversies and impact in the world)
  • Eliminate self-references in the form of direct links to project pages
  • Eliminate unnecessary detailed dates and consider prose form in some areas.
  • Cite as many things as possible
  • Coordinate with m:Wikipedia timeline
