Wikipedia:WikiProject Isle of Wight

Welcome to WikiProject Wight. This project draws together editors working on all Isle of Wight-related articles, with the aim of improving and expanding all aspects of coverage. There are many articles to deal with, from local newspapers to landmarks and sports teams. Please join us to help these articles become amongst the best on Wikipedia.

In most cases, if you think an article needs to be assessed, be bold and assess it. If you have not assessed articles before or wish to refresh your memory, have a look at our assessment criteria and the Talk Page template.

However, if you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it please leave a note on our Assessment request page - brief directions can also be found there.


For further details on our assessment process please go to our assessment page.

To do edit

Articles to be created edit

To mark a potential article as 'needed' please go to [[Talk:Name of the needed article]] and place the following code:

{{WikiProject Wight|class=needed}} {{go away}}

The WikiProject template will add it to the list of needed articles. The Go Away template will prevent it being accidentally deleted by a bot under WP:Criteria for Speedy Deletion#G8.

It is preferred, if possible, to actually create a stub rather than just mark a page as needed. However, if you can see a need for an article but do not have the knowledge or sources to write even a dictionary-style definition, mark it as needed.
