Our goal is to improve the quality of articles on Punjabi Wikipedia during the month of April 2016.


Punjabi Wikipedia has a lot of stub articles as of now. Many of them are related to villages of Punjab.

We created articles last June from the List of articles every Wikipedia should have. 935 articles out of these are stub articles. This time we want to improve these stub articles.

We will let people improve articles of their choice. These two topics will be provided as suggestions.


Punjabi Wikipedia community will be improving quality of existing articles on Punjabi Wikipedia. We will be using hashtags to track the total progress during the month. We are hoping to get a tool similar to WAM tool, otherwise we will be judging articles manually.
