Subject: [African Wikimedians] Africa Destubathon
To: Mailing list for African Wikimedians <
Hello gals and guys
In case you missed it, I wanted to inform you of the forthcoming Africa
The idea is simple: blast away as many of our 37,000 + Africa stubs as
possible! There will hopefully be a prize to the editor who fleshes out the
most stubs from every country of Africa.
All that is required for this is basic article expansions and improvements.
To "destub" an article all you have to do is ensure it's minimum 1.5 kb
(1500 characters) readable prose in total
The existing text and text you add is expected to all be verifiable and
adequately sourced to reliable sources, with the expected
Wikipedia:Citations drawn up. Whoever "destubs" the most articles for a
given country wins a prize, and whoever wins the most "destubs" for the
most countries will be crowned the overall winner.
Starting Oct 15
Anything special ?
There will be special prizes for whoever destub the more African Women
