Wikipedia:Articles for Improvement

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Articles for Improvement (AFI) was where Wikipedians discussed how to improve low quality articles. Articles were listed for at least seven days, after which the nomination may be closed; although they may remain listed for longer provided improvement is being carried out and until consensus on improvement is reached. During the period that articles are listed, users may offer suggestions on how to improve the article, including any possible sources, or may directly edit the article.

The process was designed to support the development and expansion of articles which do not meet the deletion criteria at WP:DEL-REASON, but are in need of care, especially those which have had cleanup and maintenance tags for over a month, yet are still awaiting improvement. The process followed the advice at Wikipedia:Before and the policy notes at WP:DEL-CONTENT to work to improve an article rather than list it at AfD.
