Here are listed proposals for the project overhaul. Discussion can occur here, if merited, some of the proposals are pretty cut and dry, a yes or no will do. Feel free to add your own proposals here but keep them feasible, and plan to work on their implementation.
A class review system
Implement a strict project wide A-class review system. Criteria to be discussed, some basic outlines do exist.
- Yes -ing I would like to see is that we create a template similar to the GA one that is posted on a page to give people incentive to get it up to A status. I think that anytime an article is put up, it should be reviewed by project members with lets say 2 or 3 members giving it the ok to raise to A level. I would like to see us create some symbol sorta like GA and FAs.Kranar drogin 02:30, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
- I agree, I have some drafts of criteria that I worked out for the NRHP project but they can be used here. I will post them if folks think that is helpful. IvoShandor 04:26, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
A bi-weekly or monthly project newsletter.
- A page would be at: Wikipedia:WikiProject Illinois/Newsletter, issues could be subpages, such as Wikipedia:WikiProject Illinois/Newsletter/Post Census Report. IvoShandor 05:54, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
A monthly collaboration morphed from our current collaboration page, which has faltered to a stop.
Restructuring of the project
|WikiProject Illinois (Talk)|
A restructuring of project focus based on several areas, outlined in the template to the right. The restructuring will allow project editors to work with editors that are both in their region and/or within their areas of interest. As editor work to build the collaborative atmosphere, they can create their own subpages, music within culture for instance.
