  1. Improve Pennsylvania articles to featured status.
  2. Standardization - Wikipedia:WikiProject Pennsylvania/Rules and Standards
  3. Building and consensus nomenclature for neighborhood articles, including elimination of all red links.


New to Wikipedia, thought some of my photos of central PA might be useful. I have them posted on Panoramio but I don't really know an easy way to export them over to wiki commons so that they retain their coordinates. If you see anything you'd like, feel free to use under creative commons as is stated on Panoramio (attribution, noncommercial, share-alike). kilmerj
