Grants:IdeaLab/Classify abandoned and new articles by importance

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Classify abandoned and new articles by importance
Create a classification for abandoned articles (or not completed or without references) and new ones (links not yet created) based on their importance (number of researches of the item in the Web, for example in Google search, or other parameters). It would be fantastic creating a competition with prices (t-shirts or pens, cheap stuff), where the most active member awards a price. It is also possibile to organize open days in some cities, where experts and active members explain some topics to people, like TedEd, but from a more professional point of view.
