Talofa! Welcome to WikiProject Samoa! This group was formed to better organize articles on Samoa in a spirit of cooperation. If you want to participate, just add your name to the Participants list below. Happy editing!

Scope[edit]

This group includes within its scope all articles related to Samoa, its cities, geography, transportation, culture, people, language, history and much more. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on Samoa in a fair and accurate manner. All of these articles should be contained within the Category:Samoa or one of its subcategories.

Find something from the TO DO SUGGESTIONS below that can be improved, whether content, grammar or formatting, and make it better. You can't break Wikipedia. Anything can be fixed or improved later. So go ahead, edit a page and help make Wikipedia the best information source on the Internet! Or you can start by helping to organise this page and WikiProject Samoa! Every article has a 'Talk' page where you can leave messages for others about WikiProject Samoa. Click the 'Discussion' tab at the top of the page to get to the 'Talk' page for this project. Again, welcome to WikiProject Samoa!

Participants[edit]

To Do Suggestions[edit]

Many of these articles and pages need expanding with proper sources and references.

For example: Here's an article A'ufaga [1] which needs expanding with a source attached which can be used as a reference. Or click on the list of potential sources below for other references.

Main Articles[edit]

Most of these important articles still need improving to meet the best quality for Wikipedia. Some are still stubs and need expanding.

Images & Media[edit]

We need to add more Images and Media on Samoa in Wikimedia Commons. There are a number of public domain sites online, especially for historical images that are now in public domain or with a Creative Commons licence. Upload images to Commons and expand the database of images for Samoa, or add your own photos if you have some. If you're new, click on the Help section in Wikimedia Commons for tutorials.

Or you can add existing photos in Commons to Samoa articles in Wikipedia to help improve them.

Missing articles[edit]

All the Red links are missing articles that need to be created. Some of the articles (blue) have been created but are listed here as many are stubs and need expanding.
