Static content subcom.

The Core Topics subproject of the Version 1.0 Editorial Team is intended to identify and work toward improvement of the most important articles (realizing that "importance" is subjective). Currently our work is limited to about 150 articles, which are listed with comments below. A supplementary list, similar in size, has been created to cover some other important subjects.

How you can help[edit]

If you're interested in helping, here are some good places to start:

Individually
  • Work on any article listed in the tree and update its status if needed. Especially, use the article status summary as a guide. The "Start Class" topics are more than stubs but often need substantial work.
Collaborations

Background[edit]

This was begun in December 2004, by popular demand, more or less, to be a list of about 150 core subjects that would go in a "release" version of Wikipedia.

The list is small so as to be tightly focused. Articles on individual countries are core topics, but beyond the scope of this list because there are so many and their value is clear. Biographies are beyond the scope of this list because their value when considered individually is too subjective. Other contenders for core articles include articles on the English language, timelines, maps and any reference material.
