A WikiProject is a project to manage a specific topic or family of topics within a Wikimedia project. It is composed of a collection of pages and a group of editors who use those pages to collaborate on a specific task. It is not a place to create content directly, but a resource to help coordinate and organize the creation and maintenance of such content. A list of Commons' WikiProjects can be found at Category:Commons WikiProjects.
The discussion pages attached to a project page are a convenient forum for those interested in that project.
Häufig gestellte Fragen
- Frage 1: Wie kann ich einem WikiProjekt beitreten?
Most WikiProjects should have a member list. Simply enter your name, and you're on! Ask a fellow member, or at its talkpage, for information on current tasks, or how you may be able to help.
- Frage 2: Darf jede/r einem WikiProjekt beitreten?
Yes. Anyone interested on a particular project may freely join it. Although, if you will be inactive, you may want to consider temporarily removing yourself from the member list, just to avoid being contacted when you may not be able to respond.
- Frage 3: Sollten "WikiProjekte" nicht Projekte von "Wikipedien" sein, wie die deutsche Wikipedia? Warum auf Commons ebenso eines?
No. A WikiProject is a popular term used on most Wikimedia projects referring to a collaboration of editors at a wiki, and not any particular Wikipedia. Commons is also a wiki.
- Frage 4: Wie starte ich ein neues Projekt, wie beantrage ich die Schließung eines bestehenden inaktiven Projekts?
Solche Anfragen sollten an das WikiProject Council gerichtet werden.
The WikiProject Council is aimed at looking into the maintenance of existing projects, viability of new projects, and the closing of old inactive ones. If you are familiar with WikiProjects, and have been contributing to Commons for a reasonable period of time, please consider joining the project!
