Welcome to the Cheshire WikiProject, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of the UK county, Cheshire. We aim to provide complete coverage on subjects related to Cheshire, by creating, expanding, and maintaining articles on people, places, and things resident or native to, or located in Cheshire. We are also the project which maintains the Cheshire Portal.

Goals
  • To improve all Wikipedia articles that are concerned with Cheshire, including its history, geography, people, constructions and buildings, establishments and customs so that as many as possible become Featured Articles.
  • To maintain, improve, and expand the Cheshire Portal.
  • Identify 'holes' or omissions in the coverage of Cheshire, and write new articles to remove them.
  • All relevant articles should be included in the Category:Cheshire or one of its subcategories.
Scope
  • Articles about all subjects related to Cheshire, including articles on people, places, and things resident or native to, or located in Cheshire.
  • The Cheshire Portal - its maintenance, expansion, and updating.

Guidelines[edit]

We shall try to follow the Wikipedia:Manual of Style for our articles.

Open tasks[edit]

The process of specifying open tasks is currently taking place on the project's talk page. Please feel free to join in.

Urgent Task

We need to begin to assess all articles that fall within our remit. The new assessments sub-page is now accessible here and can provide guidance on how to do this.


edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Cheshire:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Article requests : Articles about the following: The above tasks might consist in writing new articles, even if they are very brief at the moment, and also in searching out already existing articles on wikipedia that would fall into one of these categories. They should be initially placed into appropriate lists so others can see them and help complete them.
  • Expand : Work on the following:

    The project's talk page to expand the project page and specify various tasks that need doing;

    The Cheshire Portal to expand and maintain it to a high standard.
  • Other : Urgently begin to assess all articles that fall within the remit of the project.


We also need to work on all articles that are flagged as needing some kind of cleanup. To help us identify these, a subscription to an automated tool has been made. The output from this should be found on Wikipedia:WikiProject_Cheshire/Cleanup_listing once the bot has done its run. It is updated every few months.

Improving Articles[edit]

This entire section gives information about Cheshire-related articles as they progress from simple stubs into becoming Featured Articles with Featured Status. In general, articles should move down into later sub-sections, ending up in the "Featured articles" sub-section at the end. The methods that are used to assess articles are described in the next-but-one main section.

Articles up to becoming candidates for but not yet attaining Good Article (GA) status[edit]

This section deals with the creation of a basic article from simple stub via a short article into one which can be considered, with a little work, to become a candidate for Good Article (GA) status. Articles can be added at any stage in this sub-section. Once an article moves into a later sub-section (1.2 and beyond), it should never return to this one.

New articles[edit]

Please feel free to list your new Cheshire-related articles here (newer articles at the top, please). Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Main Page. The following articles have either been created or added to the Cheshire WikiProject recently:

Bot created list[edit]

This list was generated from these rules. Questions and feedback are always welcome! The search is being run daily with the most recent ~14 days of results. Note: Some articles may not be relevant to this project.

Rules | Match log | Results page (for watching) | Last updated: 2015-03-31 18:07 (UTC)







Recently expanded or substantially changed articles[edit]

Please feel free to list Cheshire-related articles here that you have substantially reworked or expanded. This could also include cases where you have added substantial citations and references to an article. This may help generate interest in articles and improve them further. Any such articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Main Page.

Achieving Good article (GA) status[edit]

Articles listed here are either close to being nominated for Good Article (GA) status (GA), have been nominated, or have achieved Good Article status. Wikipedia:Good articles gives more information about this status for articles. The criteria an article has to meet or exceed for it to be given Good Article status can be read about here. The process by which an article is nominated for Good Article status can be found here. Good Article status can be viewed as a stepping stone to achieving Featured Article status.

Articles approaching Good Article standard[edit]

These articles should be judged to require only a relatively small amount of work before they can be nominated for Good Article status.
