Some Wikipedians have formed a WikiProject to better organize information in articles related to the Okanagan Country region of British Columbia and Washington, in addition to their native people, and to help focus and coordinate collaborative work on them. We invite anyone to join.

Our project is designed to help collaborate a group effort in improving all articles related to the Okanagan and Okanogan regions, in addition its people. It is free for all and anybody can join, even if you are new to Wikipedia or just have not edited Okanagan or Okanogan-related articles before! You can help us out in small ways by just fixing a typographical error here and there or you could write extended information for related articles to the subject. You could even help cite things to help make all articles related to the Okanagan and Okanogan to prove that it is comprehensive and factual. Some of the core project goals are to maintain cited and comprehensive articles related to Okanagan and Okanogan to create a consistent and detailed look for each page.
Please refer to the talk page for discussions regarding major projects.

Each WikiProject is in charge of assigning a rating and importance level to each article within their scope. Every member is encouraged to use the rubric designed by WikiProject Canada, so they may check each page occasionally, making sure the rating and importance still apply to the article in question. The rubric for importance typically is:
  • Low: Stub, start
  • Mid: C
  • High: B, B+
  • Top: GA, A, FA/FL

A-Class review

WikiProject Okanagan maintains an A-Class review, to recognize articles that meet the A-Class criteria. Full instructions are given at the review page, although the process is similar to featured article candidates. The goal of this process is to give nominators a taste of what the featured article nomination process is like—it is expected that if the article is approved for A-Class, it will be almost be ready for featured article status. We highly recommend going through the A-Class process with an article before featured article candidates, especially if you have never experienced the process before, as it will ease you into the process, and show you what to expect. Before nominating an article, please be sure to read all of the instructions provided at the review page.

TUIATOWikiProject Okanagan is addicted to Okanagan.

Active members are users that contribute to any Okanagan or Okanogan-related article, at least once a month. A member is given "semi-active" status, after not contributing for one month straight, and a member is given "inactive" status, after not contributing for three months. The following users are our project's member, with when they joined serving as the order's reasoning:

An asterisk (*) indicates semi-active status.

These barnstars—a Wikipedia award given to show appreciation for others' work—may be awarded to those who make exceptional contributions to Okanagan or Okanogan articles, help out extensively with the Okanagan WikiProject, or have continually made an effort to revert vandalism on Wikipedia.
