Learning to work with Wikipedia – New Pages Patrol and how to create new Wikipedia articles that will stick
“Approximately 753 new articles are created on the English Wikipedia – each day. The wonderful volunteers at New Pages Patrol monitor these pages. There are so few of them and so much work to be done that their page has a DEFCON status to indicate how behind they are in checking the new pages being created. As it says on their page, “New Page Patrol is [Wikipedia’s] first line of defense against unwanted pages or for improvement of poorly written or constructed pages and it must be done accurately.” How can you ensure that the article you create will remain on Wikipedia when these harried, unsung volunteers are looking at it?”
