"If one could conclude as to the nature of the Creator from a study of creation, it would appear that God has an inordinate fondness for stars and beetles."

~ probably J. B. S. Haldane

WikiProject Beetles aims to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Beetles (Coleoptera). It was founded on July 3, 2011 and was active for a brief moment before becoming semi-active. Now, however, it is beginning to become active once again. If you have any questions, please ask them on the talk page of this WikiProject.

History and progress[edit]

This project was founded on July 3, 2011 by User:John Troodon, who was a sockpuppet of User:Dromaeosaur Dude. Following a brief period of activity, it suffered a period of decline, becoming semi-active and just nearly reached the inactive point. It stayed like this, very un-useful, until late 2014, when it was revived by the efforts of a group of dedicated editors.

For progress, see /Progress.
