Project Plan[edit]


  1. What is the purpose of the meeting and why is it important to your community?
    Active editors from our user group want to have that work shop of training of notability checkers. The main reason is to train them to the principles of audit of admissibility  for articles. Also this training will be used to create a pool of wikipedia’s articles checkers which will ensure keeping even and which will audit articles to ameliorate.
  2. If applicable, what benefits have you seen from doing this kind of meeting in the past?
    We did a training project focused on writing skills that we called “wikipedia class”, around 10 contributors have been recruited trained and several articles have been created by them.
  3. How will you let participants know about the meeting?
    We will invite people through our mailing list, and update spread the word on our Facebook group and website
  4. How will you keep participants engaged after the meeting is over?
    As members of User Group, they will be part of a task force providing useful advice and guidance about notability of articles on wikipedia.
  5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?
    Our user group has around 30 contributors , created more than 200 articles and uploaded more than 3 000 over the 3 latest years. We deem important to have a group of articles’ notability checkers in our team to help produce quality articles. This workshop will help set up that team of checkers.
