Join the 2022 ‘Amplifying Appalachia’ Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Make edits to appropriate pages

Peruse the pages identified as in need of attention by visiting this page of the Event Dashboard. You may work on an article of your own choice, provided it is related to our overall theme of amplifying under-represented creators and creations in and from the Appalachian region.

Be sure you are logged in through the Event Dashboard while editing; otherwise, your contributions will not be counted as part of our total contribution!

When you’re finished, be sure to take the post-event survey, where you will become eligible to receive a $10 Amazon gift card.

Assigned Articles are articles that are up for revision, as well

NOTES

DO NOT assign an article to yourself. Multiple people will be working on these, and they all need to stay present in the “Available Articles” queue. Only use this list as a reference.

These are classified according to level of development. For example, a stub article has very little information and needs much more content, while a c-class article has some basic information, but needs more detail. For greater detail on how Wikipedia classifies pages, see the Content Assessment page.

This is only a starting point. You can edit articles not on this list or create pages of your own.
