The collaboration of the 2 weeks is a collaboration to improve existing articles to Featured article status.
Nomination and VotingEdit
Articles to be improved can be nominated by registered users in the "nominations" section below, with an explanation of what work is needed. Please do not nominate articles involved in edit wars.
When you vote, please add your vote to the vote total at the current rankings section, and make the necessary changes.
Each Sunday, the article with the most support votes is chosen. Opposing votes are not counted. You can vote for as many articles as you like. Articles need two votes per week to stay on the list.
Note: It is considered somewhat rude not to help improve articles you've voted for.
Here are some best practices to use while working on an article selected for the improvement drive:
- 1. Plan your contribution. After an article has been chosen, it is a good idea to post your ideas for additions, changes and corrections for the topic on the article's talk page. You can then choose some of the listed contributions to avoid overlapping work.
- 2. Be quick. Once you have planned your work, make your edits quickly, but carefully. Articles chosen for the drive are the likely subjects of many rapid edits. By entering and exiting EDIT mode quickly, you can avoid another user saving a new edit before you have completed your work. If your edit will be more lengthy, you could make it in an external editor (i.e Microsoft Word) and then copypaste it to here.
