A project as collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of the large and ever-growing category and related articles on Cloud Computing. JohnWooten (talk) 11:52, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

List of important pages and categories for this proposed group

List of WikiProjects currently on the talk pages of those articles
Please invite these and any other similar groups to join the discussion about this proposal. See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Directory to find similar WikiProjects.

Why do you want to start a new group, instead of joining one of these existing groups?
To create a unified organizational and collaborative effort to provide enhancement, clarity and validation of a very large number of pages. Cloud Computing is highly evolving, complex and diverse in scope; much ambiguity exists over the term ("cloud computing") and its broad application continues to implement across a multitude of disciplines. Currently there exist >3,000+ articles linking to Cloud Computing, an emergent technology that continues to evolve and develop many new categories, subcategories and articles that are more appropriately addressed under this single project, as opposed to simply a Task Force that would need to encumber many different disciplines.


Also, specify whether or not you would join the project.

  • It seems to me that cloud computing involves several different disciplines so I don't understand the argument that organizing this as a task force would be an encumberance. ~KvnG 14:23, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Why wouldn't this be a task force of WP:COMPUTING ? Networking is a taskforce of WPCOMPUTING, and that's an even broader topic, as are many other fields of computing. -- (talk) 05:23, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
