🤗 Welcome to a mainspace Sandbox page. Current work is on drafting the upcoming Projects page. See this talk thread for more information or to give your feedback!


Welcome to Projects! This page lists all the community effort in improving and maintaining GodWiki. Here, you can start your own project or join an existing one.

How to start a project

Important: Before starting a project, please make sure there's not an existing one with a similar goal. If there's an existing project that is similar to what you had in mind, consider joining that project instead.

If you've determined that your project idea doesn't exist yet, follow these steps:

  1. Create the main project page by typing GodWiki:Projects/your project name. You can be as whimsical as you like when naming your project but make sure the project's name reflects the project's goal.
  2. Give an overview of your project's goal. This is where you justify why your project needs to exist. Identify the scope and intended result of your project.
  3. Create an instruction or to-do list to help coordinate your collaborative efforts. You can start with smaller tasks and add new ones as old ones are completed.
  4. If necessary, create a list of pages or a sandbox for your project. This will help you identify your project's progress.
  5. (Optional) Make a list of contributors so everyone can have a place they can sign up. The list also helps you keep track of who else is working on the project.
  6. Add your project to the list below. Don't forget to give a short description of your project so everyone can see what you're working on.
  7. Remember to always update your project's page with every progress you've made. Cross out completed tasks, add new ones if need be, or tag your project as completed or abandoned. Please don't forget to state the reason for abandoning your project if you choose to do so.

If you have any questions about projects, feel free to ask in the Discussion page or message Zoombie, who made this page and is currently maintaining it.

List of Projects

  • Permanent Projects - This section is for wiki-wide maintenance projects that are open ended and will go on indefinitely.
  • Ongoing Projects - This section is for one-off projects that can be completed at a reasonable amount of time.
  • Abandoned Projects - This section is for abandoned projects that anyone may pick up.
  • Completed Projects - This section is for completed projects.

The Page Layout

Explanation of what the Projects page is about

Instructions on how to start a new project

Links to sections of the page for the benefit of mobile users who have no TOC with a brief description of each section

Section 1: Permanent Projects

This section is for wiki-wide maintenance projects that are open ended and will go on indefinitely. Projects in this section will mostly be a compilation or list of tasks, and wiki articles and files/images that need to be fixed one way or another. Examples would be: a list of pages that need formatting and SPaG fixes, a list of pages that needed to be marked (deletion, stub, picture needed, rewrite), a list of pages that need to be moved or redirected, data gathering projects, etc.

Section 2: Ongoing Projects

This section is for one-off projects that can be completed at a reasonable amount of time. Projects here may be long or short and may be done by either a single contributor or multiple contributors. Examples would be: a new template, a new category, a content drive, a rewrite project, an interlinking project so that articles are linked to some other article, etc.

Projects here may be abandoned and tagged as such with the reason for it's abandonment indicated. Abandoned projects will be moved to the bottom of the list (or maybe in a separate table) and may then be picked up by another contributor at a later time or may remain abandoned permanently if the project is deemed unnecessary.

Completed projects will be moved to the Completed Projects section.

Section 3: Completed Projects

This section is for completed projects. This section is for archival purposes to show what has been developed in GW and hopefully give future contributors an idea on what direction to take in developing GW. If this section gets too long, past projects can be archived.

About the main Projects page and How it will work

  • The Projects page will be housed under the GodWiki namespace, not the main namespace since this is not a wiki encyclopedic article. It's mainly a list of ongoing wiki maintenance and development works and tasks. The GodWiki namespace is the Project namespace. (See this link for more info.)
  • Each section will contain a collapsible table where projects are listed. Proposed table headers: project title (the name of the project; should be descriptive of what the project is about at first glance), project description (short description of the project to give possible contributors an idea of what it is about), status (ongoing, abandoned, completed). Sub-headers or subsections may be created if the list gets too complicated and disorganized.

About individual project pages

  • Every project page will be a subpage of the main Projects page. Project pages can also have subpages and a sandbox if the scope is wide like a grand wiki rewrite or a content drive like JanuWiki and SummerWiki. This is to keep these pages off the main namespace and to tie them into a single page for easier organization.
  • Ideally, a project page will contain an overview of the goal of the project, detailed instructions and tasks to achieve the project's goal, and, if applicable, a link or list of links to the focus of the project (if it pertains to existing articles) or a link to the project's sandbox (if it pertains to the creation of a new thing). Additionally, a list of contributors may be included at the bottom of the project page.
  • Project contributors are expected to maintain and update the projects they work on.
  • Discussions of the project should remain in the project's talk page.

Miscellaneous notes

I'm digressing here but it's kinda related. Will delete and move these notes to my user page at some point.

  • Just realized that we can create a banner every time there's a new development that says: " Wiki News: We now have insert new development here. insert brief explanation." that looks similar to how the message notification looks. This should make it highly visible. It's similar to the event banner that was used on JanuWiki and SummerWiki except shorter.

Testing banners:

Wiki News: We now have a Projects page! Come check it out and see what the community is up to!
The Projects page is now up and running! Come check it out and see how you can help!
  • Expanding on the idea above, a wiki news of recent new pages/articles at the bottom of the Main Page might be a future feature. I mean, who doesn't like seeing their work recognized? (See this link and this link for more details.)

Testing the wiki news for new pages idea: (collapsed because it turned out to be long)

New Articles for the month of March
New User Pages for the month of March
New Images for the month of March
