The Essex collaboration is a coordinated effort by the Essex Task Force to improve Wikipedia's Essex-related content. However, being a member of the task force is not a prerequisite for participation in this collaboration (nor, of course, is participation a requirement for membership in the WikiProject). All Wikipedians, regardless of their level of expertise on the subject, are welcome to contribute.

Aside from the main benefit of creating better Essex articles on Wikipedia, it is hoped this initiative will a) Attract new editors to work on the Project; b) Improve the writing skills of existing editors; and c) Demonstrate the value of collaboration on Wikipedia. Additionally, some large articles may burn out individual editors before they reach Featured status. The ultimate goal of the Essex Collaboration is to get at least one article related to Essex featured every couple of months.

Nomination procedure[edit]

Any user may nominate an article to be collaborated upon. Nominees should:

  • Be about any geographical feature in current or historical Essex or somehow Essex-related topic.
  • Need a significant amount of work in terms of content, organization, prose, etc.
  • Not be in any edit conflict or be under protection.

If you would like to nominate an article, please add it at the bottom of the list of nominees along with a short note describing why you think it should be chosen.
