Welcome to the Wales WikiProject. We are a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of articles related to Wales.

Goals edit

  • The goal of this WikiProject is to provide complete coverage on subjects related to Wales, by creating, expanding, and maintaining articles on people, places, and things resident or native to Wales.

Scope edit

  • This project proposes to work with all pages related to Wales, its history, geography, and people. These should all be included in the Category:Wales or one of its subcategories.

Guidelines edit

We shall try to follow the Wikipedia:Manual of Style for our articles.

Open tasks edit

All members should always feel free to patrol the recent changes list to note improvements, other changes, or vandalism of articles within the scope of this project.

Destubathon in March 2020 edit

The Wikipedia:The Great Britain/Ireland Destubathon is planned for March 2020, a contest/editathon to eliminate as many stubs as possible from all counties. Amazon vouchers/book prizes are planned. £50 available for the most Wales destubs. Sign up on page if interested in participating; hope this will prove to be good fun and productive.

Ydych chi'n siarad Cymraeg? Do you speak Welsh?
Mae angen eich help ar Wicipedia Cymraeg hefyd. The Welsh Language Wikipedia needs your help too.
Diolch yn fawr. Many thanks.

Editors interested in articles on Wales are welcome and encouraged to edit on Welsh Wicipedia, where there are many tasks to be done. A knowledge of Welsh is helpful but certainly not essential (hint: hovering over tabs will often show the English equivalent url). These links are helpful -
