Wikipedia:WikiProject Yorkshire

Welcome to the Yorkshire WikiProject.

We are a group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of articles related to Yorkshire, England, including the counties of North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire and the cities of Kingston upon Hull, York, Sheffield, Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Doncaster, and Ripon.

  • The goal of this WikiProject is to provide coverage of subjects pertaining to Yorkshire by creating, assessing, improving upon and monitoring articles and lists about Yorkshire.
  • This project supports any pages related to the county of Yorkshire. We acknowledge the efforts and work of other projects, and will focus our attention on those articles which do not fall within the scope of any other active regional project.

Aims edit

Please discuss this section on the talk page.

Specific aims for the project are:-

  • To complete tagging and assessment of all Yorkshire related articles
  • To recruit more active editors
  • To bring our top level article Yorkshire up to Featured article status
  • To bring all other top priority articles (currently 15 with 2 at FA) to at least Good article status
  • To set up a weekly or monthly selected article improvement drive
  • To produce a regular news letter for circulation to members
