Requested pictures

Category:Wikipedia requested photographs of Science

Done (insert new ones alphabetically)

Brain, Cell (biology), Electron, Gene, Quantum mechanics, Soil, Virus, Volcano, Water

Feature articles (insert new ones alphabetically; see also Categorized feature articles, archival listing):

Here is the procedure to add an article to these lists:

  • scan a list of articles, eg. in a category, to find popular articles
  • go to the article and click on "What links here" to see how many references it has.
  • check that it has more than 500 references
    This can be done by using the "limit" and "offset" parameters in the "what links here" link where limit=20 and offset=495, for which 3 different outcomes are distinguishable
    1. "no pages link here" which occurs if there are <495 links to an article (example WHYY)
    2. >5 articles, which indicates that there are >500 articles linking to the targer (example Brain)
    3. <5 articles, meaning that there 495<n<500 articles link to the target {no example}
note that the article count includes links from the Wikipedia, Category, Talk, and other non-Main article spaces
  • --> Review not complete (Reviewed for "Done" items in listing above)
  • check if it needs restructuring (see the proposed article structure below).
  • if it does not need restructuring:
    • -->Done
  • if it needs restructuring:
    • --> Need restructuring
    • Optional: write a to-do list
      • add {{todo1}} at the top of the talk page of the article; this creates a to-do list of priority 1.
      • click "Edit this list" and add the tasks to be done to improve it; please add a reference to Wikipedia:WikiProject Science, in order to advertise our project.
      • it is good etiquette, but not a requirement, to contribute to an article before creating a to-do list.
      • --> Structure identified
    • restructure the article by moving things around (Be bold : avoid using a temporary page)
    • remove the to-do list
    • add {{WPStructure|PROJECT=Science}} at the begin of the talk page
    • --> In progress
    • fill any missing sections
    • --> Done
    • bring it to Feature Article status
    • --> Feature article

If it has less than 500 references but still needs improvements, you are still encouraged to insert a to-do list of lower priority ({{To do}}, ... ). Again, include a reference to Wikipedia:WikiProject Science, in order to advertise our project.
