Welcome to WikiProject Portals, a project that was formed to better organize information in articles related to Portals. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

The featured portal process ceased operation in 2017. At that time, there were 175 featured portals.


This WikiProject has been created in order to better organize portals and related templates, so as to allow better integration and coordination between portal topic areas and ensure any particular Portal does not become messy, forgotten or unnoticed.

Find a portal[edit]

This Project is not about how to find a portal. If you are looking for a portal, you are in the wrong place; try Wikipedia:Portal#How_to_find_portals instead.

Policy and criteria[edit]

New portals[edit]

An archived method for proposing portals can be found at Portal/Proposals. Currently, there is no process for the proposal and approval of new portals. If you want to create a new portal, see the Portal page and participate in the discussions at Portal talk. You may also talk about your idea for a new portal at this project's talk page. We'll be happy to review your idea and help out where we can.

Open tasks[edit]

  1. List all portals at Portal/Directory and Contents/Portals.
  2. Discuss and settle upon ways of linking portals of related topics.
  3. Discuss already created portals and determine their usability, readability, and worth.
  4. Discuss, create and harmonise templates and portal boxes.
  5. Help WikiProject portal dynamics with coordination and integration.
