Assessment

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to creationism (originally intelligent design creationism, but expanded in December 2010 to cover all forms of creationism). This page and its subpages contain their suggestions, and it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians working on the topic. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and Wikipedia:WikiProject/Best practices.

Scope[edit]

This project is dedicated to improving and better organizing Wikipedia articles related to creationism. These articles should all be placed in the Category:Creationism or one of its subcategories.

Goals[edit]

  • Improve accuracy and neutrality in articles related to creationism in a broad sense.
  • Create a centralized list of all articles related to creationism.
  • Create a rating system for all articles related to creationism and rate existing articles.
  • Ensure that internal organisation of creationism articles is consistent.
  • Ensure that overall linguistic style of creationism articles is consistent.
  • Ensure that all footnotes and references are kept up to date and align with WP Policy: Verifiability and WP Guideline: Reliable sources.
  • Work to bring these articles up to the level of Featured Articles.

Adopt an article[edit]

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.
