Hello editors, welcome to the September 2021 Wiki Update.
Today, we’re very pleased to kick things off with the announcement that WikiProjects are now live.
As of today, we are officially launching WikiProjects. Based off of a system used over at the English Wikipedia, WikiProjects are team-based projects aiming to work on a group of pages. This may be to fill the gaps on a specific army, subject or time period or to look at improving the quality of existing pages, or for other reasons which we’ll come across later on.
For now, we are starting off with three WikiProjects:
The CP Online Army League WikiProject- Focused on the armies that took part in the CP Online Army League [CPOAL], such as Pirates, Ice Warriors, Help Force and more in addition to the league itself.
The Army Media WikiProject- Focused on media organisations from throughout army history, such as CPAC, CPAM and CPAH, and lesser known organisations like Club Penguin Army Syndicate [CPAS, in operation in 2018 and 2019].
The Article Restoration WikiProject- Focused on an assortment of various pages in dire need of work.
Each WikiProject will have a project manager, who will be entirely in charge of their own WikiProject. For our first three projects the lineup is:
The CPOAL WikiProject will be led by administrator LEGOMAN.
The Army Media WikiProject will be led by Bureaucrat Dino/CaptainScratch
The Article Restoration WikiProject led by Bureaucrat Rowan Alden.
You can read more about WikiProjects here at their dedicated page. Check back there often for regular updates, and join the official CPA Wiki Discord server to join a project. We’ve also added the WikiProjects page to our top navigation under the ‘community’ tab.
We are also pleased to announce that the FandomDesktop transition is more or less at an end. Titlecons and infobox skins are fixed [special thanks to users on the official FANDOM server for taking a look at our code and helping us with the infobox skins]. With that done we can now look at resuming work on other projects.
Updates on Projects Previously Announced
Next, we’d like to provide updates on the projects we previously announced back in August.
We’re currently in the process of putting together a HoF with bios. We have some confirmed inductees and one or two other people for consideration, we hope to get this out within the next month with a post to announce inductees. The editing contest is still in the grapevine, we’re considering repurposing it for a holiday period.
We’re continuing to consider how we can put together a quality review process. This is fairly high up on the priority list and will likely be what we work on next.
The history page revamp is still being considered as well, we’ll likely consult with staff in the near future on how to put this together. Because of the scale of this project, we’ll be looking at doing it later down the line. We’ll also be looking at the staff page revamp in the near future.
Dino and I will be reviewing staff applications tomorrow, there’s still time to get one in. Apply here.
That's all the announcements for today. Check back soon for more updates, we hope to see you in the wiki server to help contribute to WikiProjects.
Rowan and Dino
