Things you can do

Welcome to WikiProject Stagecraft! The goal of this project is to improve all articles relating to Stagecraft, making Wikipedia the best online resource on the subject.

The vast majority of stagecraft articles are in need of serious attention. Many important topics do have existing articles, but their quality may need improving. If you would like to participate in the project, please sign up below, look for jobs in the to-do list, or join project-related discussions at the talk page.

Goals edit

  1. To improve the quality of articles on stagecraft, bringing articles on important topics up to featured article standard.
  2. To create articles to cover the topic of stagecraft comprehensively.
  3. To create guidelines for articles about stagecraft.
  4. To make Wikipedia the finest, most comprehensive resource of stagecraft topics available online.

Improve the bird's eye view edit

The entire subject and Wikipedia's coverage of it is intended to be summarized in the Outline of stagecraft. It in turn is part of Wikipedia's outline system which is one of Wikipedia's main contents systems.

Please look it over and fill-in missing topics. If Wikipedia has an article or article section about those topics, please add links to them.

While analyzing the outline, please answer the following questions (and fix the outline as needed):

  1. What's missing?
  2. Is the structure of the outline (sections and indents) representative of the subject?
  3. Does the outline help understand the relationships between the topics presented in the best way possible?

The overall purpose of the outline is to help readers comprehend the subject by showing what belongs to it, and within the subject what belongs to what.

The outline is a taxonomy of the subject, and also serves as a table of contents and navigation aid to browse Wikipedia's articles (and article sections) about the subject.

It is also a useful tool for the WikiProject to analyze, plan, develop, and revise stagecraft-related material. It is a hub from which to organize related topics.

It was built as a "reverse outline", a structural model of an existing work, which in addition to being a summary of the work, can reveal the gaps and other weaknesses for revision purposes.

Please help improve it.

It's our bird's eye view.

Thank you.
