  1. Tegalad (talk · contribs) - I don't know if I'm going to attempt this with you guys or not, but I am seriously looking into improving the Le Morte d'Arthur page, since it is quite awful. I really think that this page is probably the first point of call for many students and it should be as authoritative as possible.

Adopt an articleEdit

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article personally. 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.
