Aims[edit]

The main point of this project is to make coverage on Northamptonshire pages the best possible, not have pages with just a few lines, but have enough information without cluttering the page.

  • To have a page on all villages in Northamptonshire.
  • To have all pages with at least ten lines and expand pages with barely any information.
  • Create guidelines for articles about Northamptonshire.
  • Add suitable images by making or finding
  • Bring the Northamptonshire page to 'Good Article' quality
  • Add suitable maps by making or finding
  • To Improve all articles relating to Northamptonshire
  • To tag all Northants articles.
  • Complete the incomplete infoboxes (add coordinates)
  • Add some references
  • Add categories
  • Our biggest aim is to get Northampton, Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby and Rushden to 'Good Article' quality
