WikiProject Paintball


Welcome to the Paintball WikiProject! We are a group of editors who have come together to cooperatively improve Wikipedia's coverage of the sport of paintball. Please feel free to join.

Scope and goals

Goals The current project focus is to bring the Paintball article up to FA status. Please see the discussion on its talk page. Listed below are a number of tasks which members have felt to be beneficial toward that cause.

The goals of WikiProject Paintball are simple. In general, they are...

  • To improve the quality of the articles pertaining to paintball by creating, maintaining, expanding and polishing them;
  • To centralize the efforts of paintballing Wikipedians to improve the category;
  • To create an information base and reference base with which interested Wikipedians may maintain, create or improve paintball-related articles;
  • To create a central paintball image, video and audio base with which interested Wikipedians may utilize the full resources of paintball multimedia to improve paintball articles;
  • And finally, to exist as the focal point of paintball in Wikipedia as a whole.

Scope WikiProject Paintball's scope is also simple - Wikipedia's category of paintball, and any other articles which may mention it.

To do

Priority Tasks edit
1. Find sources for all articles to remove original research issues. Resist the urge to simply enter new information based on your own playing experience (this applies especially to strategy and role based articles).
2. Pages about paintball markers, unless very notable and well sourced, should be either merged back into the main company's page - or a page detailing the company's series of products. Having a single page for each marker model is too unwieldly and yields a lot of stubs.
3. Top priority articles should reach at least C class.
