WikiProject Buddhism is a group of people dedicated to improving Buddhism-related contents in Wikipedia. This page contains only suggestions: things to give you focus and to get you going and you should not feel obligated in the least to follow them. If you don't know what to write or where to begin, following the guidelines below may be helpful.
February 23, 2010: Hi everyone, I am proposing the development of a strategic policy regarding the authorship and maintenance of Buddhism pages, especially concerned with reducing the amount of time spent in long drawn out disagreements. How about contributing your thoughts? (

20040302, where is this policy located? -- Farang Rak Tham ( talk) 10:47, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Farang Rak Tham, You are the first to even respond to my proposal, let alone contribute to it. It remains much as it was back in 2010 – nothing more than a proposal. ( 20040302 ( talk) 16:52, 13 March 2017 (UTC))
20040302, but where can I read it? I can't find it on your user page.-- Farang Rak Tham ( talk) 17:05, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
Farang Rak Tham It wasn't written. I just made the suggestion that we develop one. I am really not sure that it would work anyway :-D ( 20040302 ( talk))
20040302, still a good idea to revive this wikiproject a bit. I've noticed the Thai wikiproject is a lot more active than this wikiproject. We could start by activating the wikiproject's talk page and continue this dicussion over there.-- Farang Rak Tham ( talk) 12:46, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
December 23, 2008: Hi everyone. I have implemented Turnkey presentation of WikiProject page (more details on the talk page). While this may not be perfectly done as yet, I hope it will encourage more efficient WikiProject operation in the future! All information that previously appeared on this page is archived at this page; much should probably be integrated here. Please help to make the operations of this project as smooth and efficient as possible! /Ninly ( talk)
I propose to move Wikipedia:WikiProject Buddhism/Archive to the other talk archives (e.g. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Buddhism/Archive 3-- Farang Rak Tham ( talk) 21:54, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
