An intense performance art with an impressive variety and dedication by its performers, drum and bugle corps (shorthand drum corps) is an activity combining unparalleled musical, physical, and mental demands. A rich history has brought the activity to where it stands today, governed by such organizations as DCI, DCA, and DCE.
At present, Wikipedia's information on drum corps varies greatly from article to article. Some need to be created, some rewritten from the ground up, others expanded to truly do justice to the activity and its performers. The goal of this project is to improve the articles relating to drum corps and make Wikipedia a premier resource on the activity.
This project covers all drum corps articles, including American and European corps at both the junior and senior level, as well as articles about individual corps such as the Blue Devils or The Cavaliers. In addition, this project will also be responsible for applicable sections on drum and bugle corps in articles where marching bands and drum corps intersect, such as drum majors, marching percussion, articles on horns and drums, and other assorted articles. The primary focus, however, is the creation and maintenance of all things drum corps.
The Wikiproject will also be responsible for articles pertaining to winter guard (governed by WGI, which is arguably a child activity of drum corps.)
Help Save Southwind!! It was almost immediately tagged for speedy deletion. I think I provided a compelling argument for it to remain (talk), but if anyone could add some oomph to that, it would help both for Southwind and the integrity of the activity and WikiProject.
A few have been added, but still less than halfWerecowmoo (talk) 15:19, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Have been attempting to add to the Drum Corps Associates member pages but they have been constantly deleted by mods. May want to go back and mark each page as a member of this project. I would do it but do not know how. Also, please remember the pages shouldn't be used as corps promotion (as has been happening constantly to the Austin Stars page) but should be factual and historical.Werecowmoo (talk) 23:50, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
Jersey Surf need a page. They've gone World Class as of 2009 and really should have a page like every other World Class corps. --Crossman33 (talk) 04:22, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
And on top of this, their page was deleted in April! --Crossman33 (talk) 17:42, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Just made the page. Hope it stays up.--Crossman33 (talk) 18:51, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
This page is within the scope of WikiProject Drum Corps, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of Drum and bugle corps (modern) on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
Standardize the basic information in corps articles
Create a custom project template (see above template)
Create a uniform infobox for corps (see articles such as Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps for an example of what we're shooting for). The current infobox (Template:DrumCorpsInfoBox) is a good start, but for defunct corps (no director), corps without titles, or other needed changes, it is somewhat inflexible. Needs to be discussed and modified!
