Welcome to Today's articles for improvement (TAFI)

This project identifies and collaborates upon underdeveloped articles that require improvement. Our goal is to use widespread collaborative editing to improve articles to Good article, Featured article or Featured list quality over a short time frame.

Our four main tasks are to:

  • Coordinate and collaborate to improve articles
  • Identify candidate articles
  • Select the order they appear on the community portal in the Today's articles for improvement section
  • Assess and track our accomplishments

Our assessment criteria and procedure are explained on the Assessment page. Like many other WikiProjects, TAFI assesses the articles it is involved with. Unlike other projects, we only assess the article's state before and immediately after its week of collaborative editing – that improvement is one (but not the only) measure of our success.

TAFI makes use of various templates. See the Automation page for details, including banners, talk page messages, and user templates. The project's bot tasks are also listed here, currently undertaken by Theo's Little Bot.

The archives page gives an overview of archived submissions and schedules. For unsuccessful nominations, archived by month, see Unsuccessful nominations for an index. For successfully nominated articles that were not selected to either be scheduled or kept in the List of articles area, see the List of articles archive. For articles that were scheduled and appeared as "Today's article for improvement", see the Schedule archive.
