Guidelines for writing articles

Please feel free to announce your new Singapore-related articles below (newer articles at the top). Please ensure that you follow the Wikipedia guidelines before you post any article. If you need help or would like to seek the collaboration of experienced editors on an article, do post a message at our talk page.

After you have created the article, add the banner {{WikiProject Singapore}} to the article's talk page so that the article is added to the list of "Singapore articles by quality and importance". If you want an assessment of your article, please add your request here

To help fight vandalism of articles, please add articles that you are interested in to your watchlist and revert any vandalism that occurs.

DYK suggestions

If you create or spot any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, consider suggesting them for the "Did you know?" box on the Wikipedia main page. Only nominations made within seven days from the creation or fivefold expansion of the article will be considered for DYK. Therefore, if you are creating a new article or working on a major expansion of an existing one and think you will take more than seven days to finish, consider doing so in a personal sandbox first and moving the article into the main namespace when you are done. You can make personal sandboxes by creating pages called "User:USERNAME/sandbox", "User:USERNAME/sandbox1", and so on, where "USERNAME" is your user name. An easy way of transferring the contents of your personal sandbox to an article is to replace the contents of the article with "{{subst:User:USERNAME/sandbox}}".

Also consider adding such articles to the Singapore Portal.

New articles identified by bot

Recently created articles that may be within the scope of the project which are automatically picked up by our bot are listed here. Do help to improve relevant articles, and make nominations for the "Did you know?" section on Wikipedia's main page.

This list was generated from these rules. Questions and feedback are always welcome! The search is being run daily with the most recent ~14 days of results. Note: Some articles may not be relevant to this project.

SGpedian administrators[edit]

No, some Wikipedians are not more equal than others. Friendly SGpedian administrators with mops and buckets are at your service to render assistance for any issue you may have from time to time. Feel free to drop a note on any of their talk pages if you need their attention.

Article improvement[edit]

This part of the notice board facilitates collaboration between SGpedians to improve Singapore-related articles. There are many issues that may be common knowledge in Singapore, but are not well known outside Singapore and thus not mentioned in Wikipedia. SGpedians are encouraged to work alone or together to identify such issues, and to create and improve articles on them to counter systemic bias.

For information on and to take part in general collaboration projects, see the following:

Click on the following links for more information on projects on specific topics:

Combat vandalism! To combat vandalism to Singapore-related articles, check for suspicious changes at "Special:Recentchangeslinked/Index of Singapore-related articles", and revert undesirable edits.

Click here for detailed information on how articles are assessed for quality

Good Article drive[edit]

The aim of the Good Article (GA) drive project is to increase the number of Singapore-related GA articles in Wikipedia. To take part, simply nominate an article with GA potential below and "adopt" it, or another article. Then work alone or with other SGpedians to bring the articles you have adopted up to GA status. Articles undergoing a GA drive are not owned by those participating in the collaboration; even if you are not a collaborator, do be bold and improve articles undergoing a GA drive.

Articles don't write themselves. So write them!

Nominated articles (46)[edit]

Please format nominations as follows:

* '''[[ARTICLE NAME]]''' (Notes such as "failed GAN on 4 July 2007" or a link to an ongoing peer review, if applicable): list issues that need to be addressed, such as "needs copy-editing" or "lack of references in History section"
*:adopted by list SGpedians who have adopted the article by typing [[User:USERNAME|USERNAME]]

To adopt an article, simply add your user name to its "adopted by" list and start improving it! Once work on an article is complete and it has been nominated for GA review, it should be moved to the "Articles undergoing GA review" list below.

  • 2010 Summer Youth Olympics torch relay (failed GAN on 9 January 2011): The article should be copyedited and restructed. Some paragraphs are unreferenced.
    Not adopted yet (AngChenrui is primary contributor).
  • Administrative law in Singapore (appeared in DYK on 12 January 2012, failed GAN on 23 March 2014): The article should be written in summary style, with less jargon, and minor tone issues addressed.
    Not adopted yet (Smuconlaw is primary contributor).
  • Ah Boys to Men (see recent peer review): The prose needs extensive copyediting and the information must be better organised.
    Adopted by Hildanknight (Bonkers The Clown, the primary contributor, was banned).
  • Andrew Ang: The two one-sentence sections should be merged into other sections. The article needs some information about his personal life. A copyedit would be useful.
    Not adopted yet (Truth'soutthere is primary contributor).
  • Balaji Sadasivan (appeared in DYK on 8 October 2010): The article would benefit from a copyedit and a Personal life section.
    Not adopted yet (Jacklee is primary contributor).
  • Battle of Singapore: The article needs a copyedit. Some paragraphs are unreferenced.
    Not adopted yet.
  • Bonny Hicks (failed GAN on 28 March 2007): The article needs copyediting. The GA reviewer also commented that the article needs more context (he also asked for more references, but they appear to have been provided).
    Not adopted yet (CyberAnth is primary contributor).
  • Bukit Batok Memorial (appeared in DYK on 4 June 2007): The article needs a copyedit and MOS check. More information would be useful.
    Not adopted yet (Aldwinteo, the primary contributor, left Wikipedia)
  • Burmese Buddhist Temple (appeared in DYK on 30 July 2007): The article would benefit from a copyedit and MOS check.

    Not adopted yet (LRD NO is primary contributor)
  • Chua Ek Kay (appeared in DYK on 18 February 2008): The article would benefit from better organisation. Its lead section needs to be rewritten. There are NPOV and prose issues to deal with. Finally, the Early life section and first two paragraphs of the Artistic career section are unreferenced.
    Not adopted yet (Marcuslim is primary contributor)
  • Constitution of Singapore (appeared in DYK on 14 January 2013, failed GAN on 16 February 2014) : The article should be copyedited to ensure summary style and reduce legal jargon. On the other hand, the "subjects dealt with by the Constitution" should be expanded, not a list.
    Not adopted yet (Smuconlaw is primary contributor).
  • Criminal Law (Temporary Provisions) Act (Singapore) (failed GAN on 26 June 2009, see reviewer's comments): The article needs more references (beyond the Act), as well as more information about controversy surrounding the Act and actual cases. Its lead section could be improved.
    Not adopted yet (Jacklee is primary contributor)
  • Daniel Bennett (footballer): There is insufficient information about his recent seasons with SAFFC. The article also needs copyediting with focus on prose flow.
    Not adopted yet (LRD NO is primary contributor)
  • Fann Wong (former GA, delisted on 15 January 2008, see reviewer's comments): The "Awards" section is unreferenced, the "Works" section is empty, the lead section should be polished and several short paragraphs should be expanded (or merged into other paragraphs).
    Adopted by Hildanknight. (Ryan-D is primary contributor)
  • Goh Keng Swee: Two citation needed tags. A copyedit would help.
    Not adopted yet (Jacklee is primary contributor)
  • High Court of Singapore (failed GAN on 30 March 2010, see reviewer's comments): The article would benefit from copyediting. Some sections should be rewritten in summary style. Please watch out for overly legalistic or technical tone in prose and lists.

  • Indra Sahdan Daud: The lead section is too short. The article needs extensive copyediting with particular attention to prose flow.
    Not adopted yet (LRD NO is primary contributor)
  • Jin Long Si Temple (appeared in DYK on 28 October 2007, failed GAN on 15 October 2012): The prose needs to be copyedited, with emphasis on NPOV. The article is somewhat outdated. One reference link is dead.
    Adopted by Hildanknight (Aldwinteo, the primary contributor, left Wikipedia)
  • Judicial independence in Singapore: The article would benefit from a copyedit and NPOV check.
