WikiProject Auckland
WikiProject Auckland aims to improve articles relating to the Auckland urban area. Feel free to contribute to any articles relating to this WikiProject and add your name to our list of participants.

Scope edit

This project aims to:

  • Improve articles related to the Auckland urban area. This includes articles about the wider Auckland Region that also include coverage of the Auckland urban area, but does not include ones about parts of the Region that have little to do with the main urban area. For example, the article about Warkworth is not included.
  • Support Auckland-related articles by ensuring that there are plenty of high-quality articles to showcase.
  • Ensure that articles are well organised, through the use of categories, and that due attention is paid to the farther reaches of the project.
  • Highlight articles about Auckland that many readers might be unaware of.
  • Oversee the development of Auckland-related articles - for example, through the Collaboration of the fortnight.
  • Provide a clear structure of how Auckland articles are arranged.
  • Coordinate efforts and peer review articles.

Adopt an article edit

Similar to the Collaboration of the fortnight, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced. You can also add any articles to be worked on in the To-Do Section of the project.
