Welcome to WikiProject EastEnders. This WikiProject is a collaboration area and open group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of articles related to the 1985–present British soap opera television series EastEnders. We currently have 352 articles under the scope of this project, which generally includes articles where EastEnders 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.

If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page, add yourself to the list of participants, see the to-do list or just start editing.

Please see the Guide to WikiProjects and the Directory of WikiProjects for more information on Wikiprojects.

What do we include?

The main criteria for inclusion should be notability. That being said, to avoid clutter and confusion, we should note the following.

Characters

Most characters that appear in EastEnders do not pass the notability guidelines on fiction. Each character that appears can be included in one of the lists of characters by year, such as list of EastEnders characters (2010) (see lists of EastEnders characters for more). Even characters with a separate article should be included in these lists. Articles can be de-merged if they grow very large, but please discuss them first (generally an article will not be de-merged if the character has appeared on screen for less than six months).

Images

Illustrations for EastEnders-related articles are typically taken from screen captures 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 production of EastEnders that have been released under free licenses, allowing third parties to modify images and use images commercially. For a gallery of free images relating to EastEnders, see here. Most non-free images currently in EastEnders-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.

New articles

This is a list of the most recently created EastEnders-related articles on Wikipedia. If you create a new article, please list it here. Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the main Wikipedia page. DYK has a 5 day limit from the creation (or expansion) of the article.

What you can do

edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject EastEnders:

Here are some tasks you can do:

Goals

  1. Organise and improve EastEnders-related articles that are in need of attention.
  2. Ensure character pages and other notable information is kept up to date with the events in the show.
  3. Maintain a standard style throughout articles, to provide a consistent and professional encyclopaedia style.
  4. Ensure that quality of articles is held above that of quantity of articles.
  5. Ensure that EastEnders-related images are provided with the correct copyright information and that they are correctly placed under the relevant EastEnders category.
  6. Ensure that EastEnders-related images and articles do not infringe copyright.
  7. Ensure that images used within an EastEnders page are relevant to the text and provide the reader with a break up from long lines of text.

Cleanup

For a list of articles requiring attention, please see Category:EastEnders articles in need of real-world perspective or the Operation: Cleanup page.

Adopt an article

Similar to a collaboration, 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, a stub or an article in need of constant updating. 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.
