* Not previously covered

This would work well, since this year is Wikipedia's Year of Science.--3family6 (Talk to me | See what I have done) 22:52, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
  • WikiProject Theatre (Not previously covered) WP Assessment of 15,000 articles. Theatre article has about 15,000 hits per month.  JoeHebda (talk)  18:53, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
  • WikiProject Science - this is the Year of Science on Wikipedia, so it would be nice to feature this WikiProject. I'll conduct the interview and submit the request for interviewees myself, if that helps. I'm pinging Ed Erhart (WMF) since they said to let them know if I had any other interview ideas.--3family6 (Talk to me | See what I have done) 21:26, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
    • Happy to work under the same arrangement as above! The blog and Signpost have mostly different audiences, so I don't think it'll hurt one or the other if we both publish. Thanks, 3family6. Ed Erhart (WMF) (talk) 21:37, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

To conduct interviews, use one of the following workspace (#1 - 8) pages.

For each person taking part in the interview, post on their talk page a wikilink to their assigned workspace, and add their names to the User column below. There is a pre-formatted notification template for you to copy-and-paste to the interviewee's talk page.
