Atlanta task force[edit]

Some Wikipedians have formed a task force of WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state) to better organize information in articles related to the Atlanta, Georgia and the Atlanta Metro area. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians.

If you would like to help, please add your name to the List of Participants below, and see what you can do. We'll be happy to have your help!

Our goals[edit]

How can I contribute to this project ?[edit]

No matter how experienced you are, we could use your help!

If you're new to Wikipedia, have a look at the following:

  1. Introduction to Wikipedia
  2. How to edit a page
  3. Starting a new page
  4. Wikipedia syntax

If you're looking to join the project or for something to do, try the following:

  1. Add your name to the list of participants (optional)
  2. Contribute to an existing article; there is a list of articles below (or click here)
    1. Have a look at this week's collaboration (on the left).
    2. Consider starting with a topic you're familiar with, and working out from there.
    3. Every article in the project has a "to do" list with suggestions and helpful links for that article. If you can think of something the article needs, or have completed one of those tasks, feel free to edit that list!
    4. Be on the lookout for tags such as {{cleanup}} and {{unreferenced}} to guide your contributions.
  1. Start a new article!
    1. There's a list of requests below (or click here).
    2. Be sure to add {{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)|class=|importance=|atlanta=yes|atlanta-importance=}} to the talk page.
  2. Add an image to an article!
    1. Check the image requests below and to the left (or click here)...
    2. Or look at project articles for somewhere a picture you've taken might look good.
    3. Image uploading and licensing is difficult, so don't be afraid to ask for help!
    4. If you upload an image you've taken, licensing it under Creative Commons cc-by-2.5 (or a similar license) will reduce the chance that it will be deleted.
      1. cc-by-nc and cc-by-3.0 licenses are considered "unfree";
      2. If you upload an image, you have to swallow the fact that any person or corporation (including the institute) can (and will) use your image.
    5. Add images you upload to Category:Atlanta. If you upload them to Commons, add them to the category on both Commons and Wikipedia. (Yes, you can categorize a Commons image on Wikipedia.)

And remember, provide sources for your edits.

General Tasks[edit]

  • Assess Atlanta articles that are currently unassessed.
see assessment
  • Prioritize Atlanta articles that are not currently prioritized.
see assessment
  • Raise quality of current articles (place an announcement in the box above when you do!)
  • Create new articles related to Atlanta

Specific Tasks[edit]

  • Clean up Atlanta neighborhood naming conventions: districts, subdistricts, neighborhoods (See Naming conventions below)
  • Fulfill the image requests

Naming Conventions[edit]

Districts, Subdistricts, and Neighborhoods: The current format of 'neighborhoods' for Atlanta is confused/inaccurate. Calling Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead 'neighborhoods' is incorrect. These are large districts, with taxing and zoning authority, and are themselves comprised of smaller districts (such as the Fairlie-Poplar district in Downtown) or neighborhoods/developments. Note, for example, Midtown includes Ansley Park, Home Park, Atlantic Station, SoNO, etc. Buckhead has over 130,000 residents and includes smaller neighborhoods, with their own associations. Someone who knows the city well needs to clean this up.
