Wikipedia:WikiProject Pink Floyd

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Pink Floyd (including individual members' work). This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

Pink Floyd are one of the most successful and influential bands of the last 40 years. While the Pink Floyd article itself has achieved featured status there are dozens or hundreds of other Pink Floyd articles which still require a lot of work. In addition, there is a shortage of fair-use images, poor referencing, and a large number of redirects and stubs which need expansion. It is the goal of this project to unite the many Pink Floyd fans and Wikipedia editors to improve the myriad of Pink Floyd-related articles. For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and Wikipedia:WikiProject/Best practices.

In order to track our progress as a community, whenever you perform some notable work on the following goals and projects please add a note on the talk page letting us all know where we are on our goals.

If you feel that you can make a positive contribution to the project, become a member by joining the list of members. If you don't know what to write or where to begin, or if you have doubts or ideas on how to improve an article, please address the project's discussion forum.

The goals of this WikiProject are:
  • To improve Wikipedia's coverage of Pink Floyd, by improving articles related to the subject.
  • Watch out for vandalism.
If you are wondering where to start, take a look at these tasks:

Highest priority

Fair use


Project building

  • Add WikiProject Pink Floyd banner {{WPFloyd}} to all appropriate Talk pages.
  • Add/update assessments for all project pages.
  • Personally invite quality editors working on Pink Floyd articles to join the project.

In accordance with Wikipedia policy, facts and assertions should be attributed to verifiable, reliable sources wherever possible (see WP:V and WP:RS).

The Project's preferred method for this is inline citations using the <ref> tag.

There is two ways to do this:

One way is to put the book in the "references" section: *{{cite book|last=Schaffner|first=Nicholas|title=Saucerful of Secrets|publisher=Sidgwick & Jackson|location=London|year=2005|edition=New|isbn=0-283-06127-8|ref={{SfnRef|Schaffner|2005}}}}

With citing the book in the article: {{sfn|Schaffner|2005|p=77}}

The other is to cite books with the page number, without placing the book in the "references" section *{{cite book|last=Schaffner|first=Nicholas|title=Saucerful of Secrets|publisher=Sidgwick & Jackson|location=London|year=2005|pages=116–117|edition=New|isbn=0-283-06127-8}}
