Please help Wackypedia by recycling less good articles!

Some people might be old enough to remember our (moderately successful) previous article improvement drive...

Well, it's back baby! Only this time... it's personal new and improved™.

So, what the heck is it?[edit]

Wackypedia is filled with great content, but there's some "less good" stuff out there as well. What we want you to do is improve the quality of those "not that great" articles. This includes:

  1. Expansion of articles - aim for a reasonable length.
    • Warning: some articles are best left short: they may be deliberately one liners, for example. We leave it at user discretion as to what is best, though the article's author/community at large has the right to revert anything at any point.
  2. Bringing articles up to date with the manual of style where possible.
    • Bolded entry, see alsos, indented & italicised lyrics/poems etc.
    • Improving grammar, spelling and punctuation (American or British English, we don't mind as long as it is consistent throughout the article).
    • Addition of appropriate categories, infoboxes etc.
    • Insertion of images - existing, new images

What needs help[edit]

You can find articles needing help via the following links:

Too lazy?[edit]

If you're not feeling in the mood to improve and article, simply tag it with {{AID}}. We urge you to actually try and improve the article first, but if you are running low on creative juices and want to bring it to the attention of someone else then stick the template on there.

You may wish to add/remove a few things and add the template, it's up to you.

When the project is over, do not despair for we won't delete the articles, just remove the template.

And what's in it for me?[edit]

Administrators will be looking to reward users for contributions to the project, primarily in the form of gold stars but also through Wackypedian of the Month noms (maybe).

The final word[edit]

(To paraphrase a quote from Asema which neatly wraps up this page:)

Just in case it wasn't clear enough:

THIS IS NOT A DELETIONIST PROPOSAL.

What is proposed is meta-editing (merging, improving, forking), and only if an article receives no love from the community for a long time is it deleted.

...I do not mean to offend, but WE ARE NOT TRYING TO DELETE EVERYTHING.
