Welcome to WikiProject Coronation Street. This WikiProject is a collaboration area and open group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of articles related to the ITVsoap operaCoronation Street. We currently have 218 articles under the scope of this project, which generally includes articles where Coronation Street is a relevant focus to the subject. This WikiProject aims primarily to improve and organise these articles in an attempt to establish a standard. Such an effort endeavours to produce a reference that has value as an authority on material within the television series, is easy to read, and has a consistent style.
The objective of this WikiProject is mainly that of organisation and improvisation in relation to articles regarding Coronation Street. What this means is, that there should be a clear standard set for both the editing and creation of articles regarding structure and layout. Quality, substance and content should be a priority. All articles on Coronation Street should strive to meet a good encyclopaedic standard. Some articles are created from a fanatical point of view, containing only unsourced plot summary. Wikipedia no longer accepts such articles per WP:PLOT, and this has resulted in a greater number of Coronation Street articles being nominated for deletion. It is important that all Coronation Street articles, particularly character pages, are written, in part, from a real-world perspective. This means that factual information should be included in the article (such as casting, impact, reception and critical analysis), based on both primaryandsecondary sources. In-universe information, such as a plot summary retold as if it really happened, cannot maintain an article by itself per wikipedia policy. To avoid possible deletion, an article on a fictional topic needs to include real-world information, in addition to in-universe information.
Illustrations for Coronation Street-related articles are typically taken from screen captures, publicity materials, magazine articles and websites. As such, they are nearly all non-free and must only be used in conformance with the Non-free content criteria. Exceptions include pictures of people involved in the writing or production of Coronation Street, which have been released under free licenses: licenses that allow third parties to modify images and use images commercially. For a gallery of free Coronation Street-related images, see here. Some non-free images currently in Coronation Street-related articles lack detailed or sufficient fair use rationales justifying their use in the articles. Such images are in danger of deletion; you can remedy this by writing better rationales.
This is a list of the most recently created Coronation Street-related articles on Wikipedia. If you create a new article, please list it here.

DYK has a 72 hour time limit from the creation of the article.
