Welcome to the Halloween task force. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Halloween and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Goals[edit]

  • Improve the quality of existing Halloween-related articles.
  • Identify Halloween topics that are encyclopedic and currently not covered in Wikipedia.

Scope[edit]

  • Articles that can be reasonably associated with Halloween, including activities and celebrations on that day.

Guidelines[edit]
