Description[edit]

Task force of Wikipedia:WikiProject Food and Drink, for all chocolate/cocoa/cacao related articles. there are at most 867 pages, fewer due to double categorized pages. I think its nicely defined, and easy to manage. I would be willing to add the task force tag to all the articles over the next 2 months. Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:54, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Identify the subject:

Show the subject is big enough:

  • Category:Chocolate is fairly extensive, but not overwhelmingly so. only a few of the sub cats (some candy brands) are not chocolate related
List of important pages and categories for this proposed group
List of WikiProjects currently on the talk pages of those articles
Please invite these and any other similar groups to join the discussion about this proposal. See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Directory to find similar WikiProjects.
Why do you want to start a new group, instead of joining one of these existing groups?
This subject is a well defined subset, deserving of its own focus, esp. considering how passionate people are about chocolate. we have beer, cheese, bacon, wine, spirits: whats left except bread and chocolate? Add to Food and Drink, model it after the Cheeses task force

Support[edit]

Also, specify whether or not you would join the project.

  2. I'm not sure that we really need this, but if it existed, I would join. I wouldn't be able to be very active, though. WhatamIdoing (talk) 16:55, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
  3. There's definitely enough to write about, but you'll need to find more people who want to focus on writing the articles –Mabeenot (talk) 00:57, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

This falls under the WikiProject Food and Drink Desserts Task Force. Also, this proposal is a bit stale and lacks any significant participation to justify splitting off this subject. I recommend closing as failed. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 06:31, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

I proposed it, and I thoroughly support closing this as failed. I have never attempted a task force before, so this really was just a test run to see how this works. i really wanted the task force, but not if there werent at least dozens willing to work on it with me.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 01:29, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
