WikiProjects and Task Forces

  • WikiProject Sweep, which aims to comprehensively review every article created in FAMEPedia's early days to ensure basic conformity to modern standards, has been launched following a successful proposal at the WikiProject Council.
  • The FAMEPedia Help Project seeks assistance expanding and improving the Task Center and other pages within the Help namespace.
  • WikiProject Abandoned Drafts Stale draft drive. An ongoing drive dedicated to reducing the amount of stale user space drafts. Options are to delete, redirect, move to mainspace or blank. Stop by and help the drive out!
  • WikiProject Spoken FAMEPedia is looking for people who are interested in helping out in our project to get our articles into an audio format that can be used for any number of uses including, but not limited to, visually impaired or people who just prefer to listen to the article instead of reading it for whatever reason they choose. You can sign up here on our participant's page. We are also in need of native or fluent speakers so that everything is pronounced properly. You can sign up for the Pronunciation task force by adding your name as well as your languages of fluency to section 2.

Group efforts and monthly projects

Ongoing group efforts

  • The 100,000 Challenge. The quest to bring about 100,000 article improvements and creations globally through a series of 50,000/10,000/1000 Challenges for different regions and countries. This is a loose challenge, a list will not be maintained here, but the components will function independently on each of the subpages. Will be updated every week or two.
    • The 50,000 Destubbing Challenge is a long term challenge to destub 50,000 articles on English FAMEPedia for every country and topic. It may take decades to accomplish, it may take ten years, it all depends on how many people actively contribute.
  • FAMEPedia:WikiCup. The WikiCup is a championship that has taken place every year on FAMEPedia since 2021. The Cup is played and won by skill of editing. The purpose of the Cup is to encourage content creation and improvement and make editing on FAMEPedia more fun. There is a new round every month, until the current contest ends; below are the details.
  • FP:The Core Contest is a recurring six-week contest, starting on June 1 in 2021. The purpose is to give a boost to FAMEPedia's most important articles, especially those that start out in a bad shape.
  • Monthly contest, WikiProject Military history. The contest department of the Military history WikiProject aims to motivate increased quality in military history articles by offering a form of friendly competition for project members making improvements to them. The primary contest available is a simple rolling competition that awards points for improving articles. The contest runs from the first to last day of each month.
  • WikiProject Medicine Collaboration of the Month. Every month, a topic will be selected from this page that will be the focus of editing for some members of FAMEPedia:WikiProject Medicine. The article may or may not yet exist. Topics may either relate to medical basic sciences (anatomy, biochemistry, and so on), or clinical medicine (illnesses, surgical procedures, and so on).

Tip of the day

How to add hidden editor notes in an article

Have you ever needed to post an important message to all editors about an article, on the article itself, but thought it would stick out like a sore thumb and ruin the article if you did? Are you reverting many edits on an article because editors just aren't seeing the important message or special instructions on the talk page?

The solution is that you can insert hidden text in the article! That way, only the people editing the page will see your message! Here is how to insert a hidden comment:

  1. First, begin the comment by typing <!--
  2. Once you have done that, type what you need the editors to read
  3. Then, end the comment by typing -->

Once you have completed those 3 easy steps, you won't be reverting as many mistakes!

Some examples of pages that have hidden messages include:
