Hello,

I'd like to try to create a template to hold some of the information we recorded in our spreadsheet and insert it onto the BWF page. I think I can do this before our next call (did we set a day for that yet?). If I get it to work we can review it on the call.

On a related note - on the last call I volunteered to look more into Wikipedia portals to see if they're worth pursuing for our project. I came to the conclusion that they're not (at least not at this stage). The main reason was discoverability. I experimented with searches and the article pages seem to be more discoverable than the portal pages. Also, I don't think there are enough relevant articles yet to need a portal. But, while I was looking at portals the more and more I looked at WikiProjects I thought they could be very useful for this project. We can talk about it on the next call but the key thing I like is that there are Wikipedia tools for tracking the quality of the articles in scope for your project. By using this we could measure the state of the articles currently and work to increase the number of relevant articles of high quality.

Andrea
