Some Wikipedians have formed a WikiProject to better organize information in articles related to the 2012 National Broadcasting Company (NBC) American television police procedural fantasy drama Awake, to help focus and coordinate collaborative work on them. Anyone can join. For more information on Task forces, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Guide.

Our project is designed to help collaborate a group effort in improving all articles related to the television show Awake. It is free for all and anybody can join, even if you are new to Wikipedia or just have not edited the Awake articles before! You can help us out in small ways by just fixing a typographical error here and there or you could write extended summaries for Awake episodes. You could even help cite things to help make all articles related to Awake comprehensive and factual. Some of the core project goals are to maintain cited and comprehensive articles related to Awake and to create a consistent and detailed look for each page. Currently, this project focuses on "in-universe" articles, in addition to essential crew and actors/actresses who have received series regular status.
Our project produces a weekly newsletter with updates about the project. Other topics the newsletter consists of is welcoming new users, announcing new featured content and nominees, as well as a weekly initiative. Every week, the newsletter posts a "Weekly Initiative", and it changes every few weeks. The Weekly Initiative consists of a goal (such as developing a character article to GA status) to be completed, with a barnstar or love token being given for each user who participates. Every member gets the newsletter posted to their talk page, and it is written and coordinated by TBrandley. If you are not receiving newsletters, please contact the coordinator. All members are encouraged to give ideas, which can be listed at the project talk page. The current newsletter is always posted at The Newsletter Page, and a list of past archives are given here.
Please refer to the project's talk page for discussions regarding major projects.

A-Class review[edit]
Symbol a class.svg

WikiProject Awake maintains an A-Class review, to recognize articles that meet the A-Class criteria. Full instructions are given at the review page, but the process is similar to featured article candidates. The goal of this process is to give nominators a taste of what the FAC process is like—it is expected that if the article is approved for A-Class, it will be near ready for FAC. We highly recommend going through the A-Class process with "your" article before FAC, especially if you have never experienced FAC, as it will ease you into the process, and show you what to expect. Before nominating an article, please be sure to read all of the instructions at the review page.
