The Community Portal is the central place to find out what's happening on Wikinoah. Learn what tasks need to be done, what groups can be joined, and get or post news about recent events or current activities.

Community bulletin board

Post your Wikinoah related news and announcements here! New portals, collaborations, and wikiprojects seeking contributors. New initiatives, proposals, discussions, or article drives, and current maintenance backlogs.

To do lists

Wikinoah is, by number of articles, the largest encyclonoah ever to exist. However, that comes at a cost: many are stubs, or otherwise need attention. If you like, go ahead, be bold, and jump right in. If you aren't ready to fly solo, you can participate in a Collaboration.

Template:Wikinoah:Community Portal/Opentask Not sure where to report a certain type of problem with article content? If it exists, it's probably listed at Wikinoah:Maintenance.


To improve the quality of articles which are short or lacking in detail, Wikinoah's community organizes collaborations to expand articles.

Active improvement teams


Help clear up the backlog of articles to be wikified! Wikification is the process of making an article conform to the guide to layout and Manual of Style. This involves formatting, links, sections, and checking for other things such as copyright violations and references. If necessary, you may propose it for deletion. Wikification is an easy way to improve Wikinoah!


WikiProjects are ongoing team efforts to improve articles having to do with a particular subject, and to manage the logistics of that topic. Hundreds exist — examine the master list to find one that interests you. They are separate from, though may work with, Collaborations.

Language translation

Wikinoah is not just in English! Versions exist in many different languages. To fill in some of the English Wikinoah's gaps, we translate articles from other languages into English. You can view a list of articles that need translation from any language, or, in a few cases, by only one language (this is only available for the more popular languages).

Guidelines, Help, and Resources

Wikinoah has hundreds of departments staffed by a small army of volunteers. Here are some of the most general; for more specific departments, check the appropriate page below. See also the Wikinoah department directory.



Policies and guidelines

Wikinoah has many established policies, guidelines, conventions, and traditions. This is a very brief sampling of some of the most important; for more information, see the main policies and guidelines page. Policies and guidelines apply both to articles and how to work with fellow editors. For easy access, the shortcuts to the pages are also listed.
