Guideline and policy news
recent query shows that only 16% of administrators on the English Wikipedia have enabled two-factor authentication. If you haven't already enabled it please consider doing so.
Cookie blocks should be deployed to the English Wikipedia soon. This will extend the current autoblock system by setting a cookie for each block, which will then autoblock the user after they switch accounts under a new IP. A
bot will now automatically place a protection template on protected pages when admins forget to do so.

Specific aims for the project are:-

To recruit more active editors (See Member News)
To bring our top level article
Yorkshire up to Featured article status To bring all other top priority articles (currently 15 with 2 at FA) to at least
Good article status To set up a weekly or monthly selected article improvement drive (See this month's feature below)
To produce a regular news letter for circulation to members
and apropos of the above a
2010 New Year article improvement drive/collaboration is being organised.
top priority articles that have been identified to date are as follows -
The number has been kept deliberately low to give us a fighting chance of improving them to at least GA status, also so we can concentrate our efforts on these first.
