Project goals[edit]

Get involved[edit]


  • Project manager I am the founder. I will lead it and help patrol the wiki. Dogebro (talk) 12:56, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Advisor I would like to participate through reporting such activities and helping in reverting changes.

I would also like to foster and encourage decision making among the community to be able reduce our role and the whole process becomes self sustained. By this I mean where the majority of readers revert such changes at their own end while our role is slowly limited to awareness of Wikipedia policies and guidelines. This would help maintain the community aspect of Wikipedia where a small group does not have un-due influence and in the end, the community decides and makes decisions in a democratic manner.
