A WikiProject is a project to manage a specific topic or family of topics within Wikipedia. It is composed of a collection of pages and a group of editors who use those pages to collaborate on encyclopedic work. It is not a place to write encyclopedia articles directly, but a resource to help coordinate and organize the writing and editing of those articles.

The discussion pages attached to a project page are a convenient forum for those interested in that project.

Finding a project

WikiProject guide


There is a central directory of WikiProjects available which lists all known projects; for ease of navigation, it has been split into sections by project topic:

WikiProjects are welcoming towards new participants; please feel free to join any or all that interest you!

Creating and maintaining a project

Before starting, read the guide to WikiProject organization, and peruse some existing WikiProjects to understand how they operate "in the wild". If you're not sure about creating a new project, or aren't certain if anyone else is interested, you can make a WikiProject proposal; like-minded editors may start new WikiProjects at any time and are encouraged, but not obligated, to propose them before doing so, as they may thus receive valuable input and save a lot of work.

For additional resources, or if you have any questions, please visit the WikiProject Council.
