Welcome to The Bund on Wikipedia Project's Wikipedia Task Force. The Bund on Wikipedia Project (דער בּונד אויף וויקיפעדיע פּראָיעקט) is a project that was established in order to create and edit pages about the Jewish Labour Bund, or Bund, on Wikipedia. Our Project seeks to assist professional and non-professional researchers of the Bund, as well as to preserve the memory and legacy of the Bund through Wikipedia. This Project/Task Force was established in August of 2009. Formally, it is a task force under WikiProject Judaism and WikiProject Organized Labour. Please see our website for more information.


The scope of this Task Force/Project includes everything that is related to the General Jewish Labour Bund. That includes people, publications, groups etc. There are no specific time periods included in this project's scope.

Assessing quality and importance[edit]


On the Talk page of any Bund Task Force article, you can assess the quality of the article (Stub, Start, C, B, or A) by adding the parameter |class=Start (for example) to {{Bund Task Force}}. At this point, I doubt if we have any A or B articles.

In general, you shouldn't assess an article you've worked on. For more information about quality assessments, see this chart.


On the Talk page of any Bund Task Force article, you can assess the importance to this Task Force of the article (Top, High, Mid, Low) by adding the parameter |importance=Mid (for example) to {{Bund Task Force}}.

Keep in mind that you're assessing the importance of the topic to this Task Force, and not the encyclopedia. Hence General Jewish Labour Bund is rated as Top importance for this Task Force, High importance for WikiProject Organized Labour, and Low importance to WikiProject Latvia. Here is more information about importance.


The following table shows this Task Force's articles by quality and importance. As you can see, many of our articles haven't been assessed yet.



For every article, please add the appropriate categories.


Add {{WikiProject Jewish Labour Bund Task Force}} or the shortcut {{Bund Task Force}} to the top of the talk page of an article to add it to this Task Force.
