WikiProjects and Task Forces
- WikiProject Articles for creation is in the process of deleting abandoned submissions, while keeping those which show promise (Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/G13 rescue) for adoption/improvement (Feel free to work on one or more of THESE.) —Anne Delong (talk) 12:19, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
- WikiProject Invention is in the process of recruiting membership and focusing efforts upon invention-related topics in the encyclopedia. Northamerica1000(talk) 10:47, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
- User:Emijrp/All human knowledge is in the process of estimating how many notable articles (by type) are needed to cover the sum of all human knowledge. In other words, "How big is Wikipedia's article count likely to grow, and what is still left to be covered?" Please help us forecast the future of this encyclopedia and chart missing coverage by expanding the tables, updating the progress bars and improving references. The most prolific editors will be awarded with the unique AHK barnstar! Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun.
- WikiProject Wikify is holding its December Wikification Drive from 00:00, 01 December 2013 to 00:00, 01 January 2014 (UTC). Hard-working participants will receive awards for their contributions. —benzband (talk) 21:29, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
