Trident logo.svg Welcome to the Rick Riordan task force of WikiProject Novels! We aim to create a standard of excellence for articles related to novels written by Rick Riordan. In general, this task force aims to organize, expand, and improve Wikipedia's encyclopedic coverage of articles that pertain to this author's works. Until November 2015, this task force was known as "WP:PJTF". View the discussion that led to our new name here.

Please make propositions or proposals, discuss issues, share ideas, and make comments at the RRTF General Forums.


This project covers:



  • We appreciate IP addresses wanting to help, but we cannot accept members without accounts. Please create an account to join. Thanks!
  1. If you are still interested and are ready to help full-time, please list yourself under the "active" heading.
  2. If you are no longer interested, please place your name in the "inactive" section or remove your name entirely.
  3. If you are unable to participate full-time, but still want to show your support, add/move your name to the "supporters" section.

No user in good standing may ever be removed from the following lists by another user, though they may be moved to a different section depending on their activity level. "Supporting" users will never have their names removed, except at their request.

  1. WikiPancake (talk · contribs) - Moved from "active"; No longer actively editing, at least for now, also am willing to give up HR Rep to another fellow editor. I'll try to edit frequently as possible (although it won't be easy.)
  2. Ladywitchthought (talk · contribs) – I haven't read this series for a couple of years, but once I re-read them, I will hopefully find time in the holidays to help.
  3. Brambleclawx (talk · contribs) Will occasionally help out. This is not my area of specialty though.
  4. MeisMyself (talk · contribs) I will help out whenever I have the time. I can't guarentee that I have the time to do all the requirments to be active, though.
  5. Alec scheat (talk · contribs) I`ll help whenever I see a mistake or so in the articles. Not sure how helpful I can be, but I`ll try and correct mistakes.
  6. MegCahill (talk · contribs) I'll try and help out whenever I can. But lately I've been way to busy to even think about Wikipedia.
  7. KF5LLG (talk · contribs) I have read all of the series books. Heroes of Olympus, the original percy jackson, and the kane chronicles.
  8. LovelyEdit (talk · contribs) I've read all of PJO, HoO, and Kane Chronicles. Also willing to edit any pages related to those series.
  9. Cassie Hawthorne (talk) 03:58, 5 April 2014 (UTC) I have read all of the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus books, but I'm not an active editor. I usually only edit articles if their errors really bug me to the point of almost-insanity.
  10. Airplaneman (talk · contribs)
  11. Dibyendutwipzbiswas (talk · contribs) I'll try my best.
  12. PrincessofLlyr (talk · contribs) I'm not very active right now, but still keep up with series and may eventually come back.
  13. Elizium23 (talk · contribs) I am back after several months of hiatus. I will help in minor ways such as patrolling vandalism.
  14. DocWatson42 (talk) 05:16, 9 May 2017 (UTC): Feel free to ask me any questions about editing, especially about copy editing, layout, formatting references, and other technical issues. I may not respond promptly, but I enjoy helping.
  15. Cassiethecat800 (talk · contribs) I'll try to help out, but I haven't read all of his books.
  16. Pedrohoneto (talk · contribs) I'm not very active in the English Wikipedia, but gradually I'll try to translate the articles of The Heroes of Olympus books that I promoted to good status in the Portuguese Wikipedia.

Users and members: feel free to add things to the to do list to help the project focus on areas in need.

Maintenance of task-force[edit]

WP:RRTF is always looking for ways to make its pages more user-friendly -- you can help!

  • Participate in the Outreach Program:
    • Inform other editors and projects of your membership and what the task-force does.
      • Send a {{subst:RRinvite}} to Wikipedians you think might have an interest in the project.
      • Make sure every new or returning member gets a {{subst:RRwel}} on their personal talk page.
  • Article style and oversight:
    • Develop a standard format for articles, and create project pages to describe this formatting. (Use WP:NV's pages as a starting point.)
    • Develop a quality and importance classification guideline, and appropriate project subpages, similar to Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Assessment.
    • Consider creating a Rick Riordan portal. (Keep in mind this previous attempt and these guidelines, and remember to start a discussion.)

Maintenance of articles[edit]

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Completed tasks[edit]

Top ten Candidates for Collaboration[edit]

The following CCs are articles in need of improvement by RRTF members. The ultimate goal should be to achieve good article status for each and every article under our scope, but the following represent the most important pages in the most need. See this page for a useful template.

  1. John Rocco -- Stub class (current Collaboration)Low importance360 views per month (vpm)
  2. Blackout (picture book) -- Stub (current Collaboration)Low60
  3. Swim that Rock -- C (current Collaboration)Low30
  4. Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard -- StubTop17,070
  5. The Trials of Apollo -- StubHigh22,230 (# 363: WP:NV's 500 most popular pages)
  6. Percy Jackson (film series) -- StartTop45,090 (# 183: WP:NV's 500)

Editors are encouraged to use this sandbox for test edits. This will be checked regularly by RRTF members and necessary updates and corrections will be made. It is requested that an editor make test edits here instead of directly in the articles.

Tagging and assessment[edit]

Any article related to this task force should be marked with "rick-riordan-task-force=yes" to the {{WikiProject Novels}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Rick Riordan task force articles.

The resulting code is usually:

{{WikiProject Novels

Please note: The parameters "percy-jackson-task-force" and "percy-jackson-importance" will generate the same template, and do not need to be changed for individual articles.

Stub template: {{fantasy-novel-stub}} (goes at the bottom of unfinished or very small articles)
Navigation boxes: {{Camp Half-Blood}} {{Kane Chronicles}} {{Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard}} (go at the bottom of articles to organize links to related pages)

Article classes[edit]
