Wikipedia:WikiProject Television/Friends task force

Welcome to the main page of the Friends WikiProject. The project launched on October 31, 2007. Currently, we have 2 active members. The WikiProject is a sub-project of the Comedy WikiProject and the Television WikiProject. Please see the discussion page for information on various project-related collaborations.

The Friends WikiProject was formed to foster the creation and encyclopedic improvement of Friends-related articles, and to establish guidelines for those articles. Its members endeavor to produce a succinct, comprehensive, general, and authoritative reference on Friends materials. Additionally, the WikiProject works to ensure that all related articles attain the standards set by WP:FICT and WP:WAF. In order to reach these standards, the WikiProject discourages extreme details and encourages an out-of-universe perspective for all prose (excluding concise plot summaries). The ultimate goal of the project is to have every article within its scope be at featured status. To participate, simply add your name to the participants section. If you have any questions, comments, ideas or concerns about the project, feel free to visit our talk page.


The goal of the Friends Wikiproject is to organize, clean, and improve Friends information within a format that fits Wikipedia's fictional procedures to, ultimately, the level of quality stressed in the Featured Article and Featured List guidelines. The WikiProject covers all Friends-related articles, including, but not limited to:

  1. Primary, secondary and minor characters, episodes, cast and crew.
  2. Anything located within a Friends or Friends-affiliated category, sub-category, list, article, stub, or template.

Goals and duties[edit]

Our goals and duties are as follows:

  1. Discussions and debates relating to the above items, including merges, citations, other references, image issues, splits, cleanup, formatting, and expansion.
  2. Reduce trivial information, speculation, point of view, and anything else that violates Wikipedia's Fictional Guidelines.
  3. Monitoring all articles for violations of anything listed in the above two parts.
  4. Promote the Friends article to Good Article, Featured Article, and/or Featured List status.
  5. Create and improve episode articles.
  6. Create and expand articles about production staff.
  7. Improve articles on secondary characters.
  8. Work toward making all Friends-related articles and lists clean, organized, well-written, and accessible.
