Welcome to the WikiProject Isle of Man! This group was formed to better organize articles on the Isle of Man in a spirit of cooperation.


This group includes within its scope all articles related to the Isle of Man, its geography, transportation, history and so on. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on the Isle of Man in a fair and accurate manner. All of these articles should be contained within the Category:Isle of Man or one of its subcategories.

To do[edit]

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Please feel free to add your name in here.

Structure and navigation[edit]

  • Refine and maintain the List of basic Isle of Man topics, a key guide on Wikipedia to the Isle of Man as a subject. It serves as a table of contents, summary, and topic outline of coverage on the political entity the Isle of Man and is the most useful tool on Wikipedia for exploring and understanding fundamental material about the Isle of Man (and how it fits together) on Wikipedia. Its purpose is an important one: it simply enables readers to see at a glance how the subject of the Isle of Man is broken down, what the component topics are, and how they relate to each other - that is, how information on the Isle of Man is organized (here, and in the world-at-large). It is a site map and outline of knowledge that demystifies the subject known as the "Isle of Man". Because of its central role in the presentation of Wikipedia's coverage of this subject, it is very important to develop and maintain it to the highest level of quality: to help readers improve their conceptual awareness and understanding of the Isle of Man as well as find their way around this subject on Wikipedia. For examples of other pages in this set, see List of basic France topics, List of basic Thailand topics, List of basic Japan topics, List of basic Taiwan topics, and List of basic Iceland topics, all of which are currently completed to a higher level of quality than this page. In other words, it's getting its ass kicked: the List of basic Isle of Man topics is incomplete, needs your editing contributions, and is especially in need of maps and pictures!
  • Refine and maintain Category:Isle of Man and its subcategories.
