Please discuss any proposals for new projects and task forces with other members or with the project as a whole before creating them.
WikiProject Television runs several descendant WikiProjects and task forces are informal groups of editors gathered for collaborative work on a particular topic within the subject of television. They afford the advantage of allowing editors to organize their efforts around a topic without having to expend time and energy organizing and duplicating the overall structure, style, and guidelines for a descendant WikiProject which would be completely or mostly covered by the Politics WikiProject.
Editors interested in creating descendant WikiProjects and task forces should look towards creating a task force with a medium-to-large number of articles within its scope, or consider a higher-level scope if this cannot be achieved.
Task forces should also have aroused a significant number of potential participants to warrant organizational overhead. The project, via consensus on the discussion page, will determine if a descendant WikiProject or task force is to be created.
We now strongly recommend that new show/topic-specific WikiProjects become task forces of WP:TV. This still allows for greater focus on that show/ topic, but without having to start a whole new project from scratch. Many existing show-specific WikiProjects became projects before the concept of task forces was widely known, and many of them will become task forces in the future. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Guide for more info, or ask for help on WT:TV.
