User:Doug/sandbox User:Doug/Sandbox User:Doug/Sandbox 2 Discussion of inactive projects -thoughts:

So I would tentatively organize the inactive projects more like this:
  • 1. Delete - Spurious projects we wouldn't consider beneficial no matter how many members they had and projects that have never done more than create a Project page with no activity for several months.
  • 2. Userfy and refer editor to WP:COUNCIL/P (but remembering that neither the Guide nor Proposals are policy)- One member projects where the member is actively editing in the topic covered by the project
  • 3. Rename as a task force - Projects with Very few members and a small scope (some very large scope projects have very few members)
  • 4. Mark Historical and either rename as a task force or otherwise suggest where to comment - projects with little activity over an extended period of time that don't fall into any of the above - including most inactive maintenance projects.
  • 5. Mark Inactive - projects of any size with little activity for several months as a sort of yellow light to everyone concerned and to help us track when someone needs to suggest actions 1 though 4.




A template for law? Not really that great, there's better stuff down below.


WikiProject: Law


--comment-- According to the article the United States is eligible as "a group of British Colonies until 1783". Is there a reliable third party source that says that the United States, a federal republic only 13 of the states of which were ever British Colonies (though many other parts were British territory at times) and which also includes French, Spanish, and Russian colonies or territories and one previously autonomous kingdom, that repudiated the Crown and made war against it, is eligible for membership.

Also, as an American, I consider the idea that we were colonies until 1783 POV. During the Revolution the American's carried arms openly, organized a standing army which moved about at will, and operated virtually all of the functions of civil government.

- maybe want to add



Looking for something good/better for WPs I'm involved with - these are just models, I am not necessarily associated with any of them:

WikiProject Philosophy task list

  • Optimism should have a separate page that focuses on the philosophical idea of optimism and distinguishes the philosophical view from "positive thinking" and other everyday uses of the word.
  • Philosophy of social science, has some okay points but requires elaboration on Wittgenstein and Winch, perhaps other linguistic critiques, whether logical positivist or postmodernist.
  • Exchange value needs to be redone, it shouldn't be under 'Marxist theory'- although it's an important component of Marxist theory it's also vital for all economics. That said the articles weight on Marx is also absurd.
  • German Idealism and the articles related to it may need to be rewritten or expanded to avoid undue weight on Arthur Schopenhauer.
  • Protected values first section confuses right action and values and needs a copy edit, moving and wikifying
  • Quality (philosophy) needs a more clear explanation.
  • Socratic dialogues could do with some tidying and clarification. See the talk page for one suggested change.
  • Problem of universals: The introductory definition is (perhaps) fixed. But, the article is poor. Check out the German version.
  • Teleology: the article is shallow and inconsistent.
  • Existentialism: the quality of this article varies wildly and is in desperate need of expert attention.
  • Analytic philosophy This is a very major topic, but still has several sections which are stubs, and several topics which are not covered.
  • Lifeworld A philosophical concept that seems to have fallen exclusively into the hands of the sociologists. Could use some attention; it's a major and complex issue in phenomenology.
  • Amorality This page needs great attention as it is currently totally uninformative and, in my opinion, risks more to confuse readers than inform them, as most people will come here with no knowledge of amoralism and worse, often with huge bias against it.
  • Perception Needs the attention of philosophically minded Wikipedians. This is only the start of an overhaul of perception and related articles.
