==== Simple tasks  ====
 
 
 
Potentially, a large number of volunteers in the community may feel unqualified to write a 'how to' article on a subject of interest, but they are available to do simple tasks that support the writing of articles. This is the place to list and/or volunteer for those tasks!&nbsp; If you're a writer, here's where you can get some help. If you're a volunteer or community member, here's where you can give some!

==== Other England Pages to Update  ====
 
 
 
Many of these articles came from the old England Research outline and need to be updated.&nbsp; This table lists all topics for all phases of England barn raisings. They are listed here to give you the opportunity to take a task even if all of those above are taken or none of them meet your interests. You may add tasks you think are needed or add a note to one you think is not needed for England.While these pages are not part of the February 2009 barn raising, they can be worked on at any time, and may be the focus for a future phase of England barn raisings.<br>

Revision as of 03:47, 25 March 2014

Double Bus England.jpg
Welcome to the WikiProject England page! A focused community effort to create or revise content relating to a single topic.

Scope

Articles about England and England research topics. Ideally a child WikiProject could be set-up for each English County which would focus on articles for county level resources and the parishes within each county. Until these are created these are within the scope of this project. Some articles cover both England and Wales and so would also fall within the scope of WikiProject Wales.

Child WikiProjects

Meetings

A Project Meeting is held every Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. MST.  Everyone is invited.  If you would like to work on the project, but aren't sure where to start, this is a good place to learn more about what is going on. 

  • Join the meeting here
  • The meeting number is 994 670 621
  • There is no password required
  • The system will call you, but should you need to dial in, the phone number is 1-855-537-4000 (U.S. Toll-Free)


For more information or questions, contact the Project Coordinator, Jane Colmenares, evancol@yahoo.com  Evancol 15:06, 30 January 2014 (UTC)


Tasks

See a list of easy tasks that need to be performed on the England pages.  If you haven't edited in the Wiki before, we will help you get started, and we will teach you how to perform the task you choose.
