WikiProject Bradford

This is the home of the Bradford WikiProject, a group of people dedicated to expanding and improving articles relating to Bradford, England. You don't need to be from Bradford to help with this WikiProject.

One of the tasks of the Bradford WikiProject is to assess the quality of Wikipedia's Bradford articles. The resulting article ratings are used within the project to help in recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work. They also play a role in the WP:1.0 program, which the WikiProject uses to help automate some of the assessing process.

The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{BradProject}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Bradford articles by quality, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist. WP:1.0 also produces a statistics page, and a log of articles assessed.


General aims include the general maintenance, expansion and improvement of all Wikipedia articles concerned with Bradford, including:

  • Improving all Wikipedia articles that are concerned with Bradford, including its history, geography, people, constructions and buildings, etc.
  • All relevant articles should be included in the Category:Bradford or one of its subcategories.

More specific goals are:

  • To bring Bradford up to FA standard.
  • Add a suitable infobox to all wards in Bradford.


You don't need to be from Bradford to help with this WikiProject. We welcome editors good with layout and prose, and non-Bradfordian editors who can point out when we've wrongly assumed we don't need to explain or define something for the reader, or failed to properly establish the context of an article. We ask that users be registered, and are familiar with Wikipedia's various policies.

Please feel free to add yourself here, and to indicate any areas of particular interest or knowledge.

Needing attention[edit]

There are many articles relating to Bradford which require attention and work. Members of the project are encouraged to post articles in need of work in the table below. Any relevant article can be nominated, but articles with greater significance should be of the highest priority, and so please explain why you nominated this article and what needs doing.

Articles that you think are almost at WP:GA or WP:FA standard, are also very good articles to nominate!

Article name Date of nom. Who nominated it Why are you nominating it? What needs attention?
Example 25/2/07 User:Example Example is very important because it is used as a demonstration for what we need. Sources do not use inline citation, the overall appearance is dated, and in breach of WP:LEAD and WP:MOS. Better use of headings, images and wider range of sources would rapidly improve the article.
J. B. Priestley 25/2/07 User:Fl1942 One of Bradford's most respected writers. It deserves better than this. Huge way to get to even GA status. Citations, expansion, etc.
