General notices

  • The 50,000 Destubbing Challenge launches in April 2020, starting off with entries done for the March contest. It is a very long term goal to reduce our stub count by 50,000 articles. Editors now with more time to edit during the pandemic please help contribute to setting this off on its way!
  • Wikipedia:WikiProject COVID-19 has been formed to help develop and organize articles on the current pandemic.
  • A newsletter about userscript development on Wikipedia has been created: Wikipedia:Scripts++. To subscribe, visit its mailing list.
  • A project is under way to add short descriptions to all articles. This is mainly for the benefit of mobile users searching Wikipedia. Help is welcomed – please visit WikiProject Short descriptions to learn more.
  • SearchSuite is a userscript that provides user control over search results: it can strip them down to a single-spaced list, sort, and more. Most of its features are presented as menu item toggles to turn each feature on/off. Feedback and feature suggestions welcome.
  • Do you have need for a specialized script that doesn't exist yet, or have an idea for a cool new script or gadget? Post requests and ideas at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests.
  • Free subscriptions to high-quality paywalled journals, newspaper archives, and online reference works are available for Wikipedia editors. For more information, see Wikipedia:The Wikipedia Library

WikiProjects and Task Forces

Wikiproject group activities and efforts

March–April
  • Wikipedia:WikiCup. The WikiCup is a championship that has taken place every year on Wikipedia since 2007. The Cup is played and won by skill of editing. The purpose of the Cup is to encourage content creation and improvement and make editing on Wikipedia more fun. The Next round begins March 1 and ends April 28.
  • VisibleWikiWomen (image campaign), March and April 2020. In March and April, WikiProject Women in Red are collaborating again with m:Whose Knowledge?/VisibleWikiWomen by encouraging the upload of images to WikiCommons. These can be photos or other images related to women, their works, and their issues. Anyone can take part in this event. Don't forget to include any new images you post on our other meetup pages. We should keep track of all the new images you add to Commons.

Ongoing

  • Wikipedia:The 100,000 Challenge. The quest to bring about 100,000 article improvements and creations globally through a series of 50,000/10,000/1000 Challenges for different regions and countries. This is a loose challenge, a list will not be maintained here, but the components will function independently on each of the subpages. Will be updated every week or two.
