The Novels WikiProject Newsletter
Issue XX - January 2008
Project news
  • Welcome to a new calendar year (for most of us!)
  • During 2007 we have seen membership grow from just below 200 to just below 300. Also our tagged article count now runs at about 16,000 considerably up on this time last year. It highlights the message given from last year that there is much work to do improving and caring for this corner of our "wikiworld". Sadly our Auto-list editor moved on and we sorely need an able replacement. On a more positive note we have seen the establishment of task forces, style guidelines and peer review. Our latest outreach initiative is the Novels Job Centre.
Member news
  • The project has currently 299 members, 9 joined & 0 leavers since the start of December 2007
  • n.b. this graph copy has been included as a "one off" example just for this newsletter to let you see the addition to our membership page.
Other news
Task force news
