Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to rowing. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

  • Featured Articles:
  1. Raise the rowing (sport) article to featured status.
    1. Get article relisted to 'good article status'
    2. Put through another round of peer review, see here
    3. Nominate for featured status
  2. Ditto for Henley Royal Regatta, The Boat Race , Steve Redgrave
  1. Tag {{Rowing-stub}} onto all rowing stub articles so we can keep track of them.
  1. It would be worth trying to make a rowing portal
  2. Maintain the rowing portal

Citations[edit]

Many of the rowing articles on wikipedia are lacking inline citations and references. It is wikipedia policy that all articles contain references, so that the information can be verified. Inline citations are not a policy, as so few articles have them, but they are necessary for an article to be raised to 'good' or 'featured' status.

Can all involved please make an effort to add citations to any article they have significantly contributed to, preferably inline. Otherwise, according to wikipedia policy, there is nothing to stop uncited information from being deleted.

You may wish to read or skim through the following policy pages:
