Articles Needed talk[edit]

  • /ArticlesNeeded - Articles Needed discussions (only use the page talk for page related discussion)

Any conversation about specifics of the Articles Needed pages should go here. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 09:52, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

  • I think a list of "expansions needed" would be more useful than "articles needed." There aren't many major (literary/classic) novels that lack pages in Wikipedia, but there are way too many stubs. Of course we could have two parallel lists as well. | Klaw ¡digame! 22:18, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
We could think of the using the Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Worklist of that type of expansion work. We need to start of collaborate on specific novels, agreeing to concentrate our efforts in twos and three on a novel, getting the work done and then move on. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 09:07, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey, Kevin, about the groups of twos and threes on a novel, I'm trying to find someone on Wiki who's basically an expert and an avid reader of Kate Forsyth novels so that I could work with them on the books. Do you know anybody who is besides me?

What if wikiproject novels had this sort of forum where everyone lists down the novels that they read so that we could form the groups easier? I know that User:JerryFriedman and I have basically finished Maia (novel) working as a pretty good team together. Lady Nimue of the Lake 08:27, 20 October 2006 (UTC)


I've just written the article for Alan Dean Foster's book Parallelities. I would not mind some suggestions. marbeh raglaim 03:44, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Missing: Peter Benchley[edit]

I just discovered that there appears to be a complete lack of articles on novels by Peter Benchley. Jaws has a subsection in the biography article, but that's it. If there are any Benchley experts out there, this is something for the to-do list. 23skidoo 04:00, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Thorough article?[edit]

I don't know what this means, but I created a stub for Fielding's Amelia. Should it be deleted from this page (as well as the announcements I guess?). It should go on the worklist as something that needs to be expanded. I've never read it and know nothing about it, so I have to leave it up to someone else.--Ibis3 05:52, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

sparse list[edit]

It seems like someone has picked a few authors and listed their entire bibliographies. There is however, a list of notable books without articles drawn from good sources (most are novels). Could we import some of that list over here so we at least have something more substantial? I wanted to replace Amelia with another venerable classic--but there aren't any listed here! (and I know there are many notables missing...)--Ibis3 06:18, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

making sure you have the right title[edit]

I look at the list, and some of them have the wrong titles. It's all fixed now. Just make sure that anybody who posts there has the right title. Lady Nimue of the Lake 08:22, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Added Novel[edit]

I added The Lakota way by Joseph M. Marshall III to the list and I'm currently working on building the article myself at the moment. It should be all fleshed out in a few days or so. Lenore Schwartz 22:12, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Adding Newbery's to the List[edit]

I'm not sure anyone's watching this list, so I might be posting to a dead-letter-office; however, I'm starting a little project of my own that I could use some help with. As a middle school librarian I am finding all the red links on the Newbery Medal page discouraging. I have started a mini-project (I am the only member, ;) so far) here: User:Sabiona/Childrens_Awards_Status. I would like to add the novels here and on the childrens project, but I'm not sure if it's okay to post needed articals in more than one place. Any comments are welcome.
