Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH Archive/Inquisitorius Announcement: Tutorials

In the hopes that the role of the Inquisitorius can be broadened beyond simply reviewing Featured Articles, tutorials will be offered at some stage in the nearby future. There will be a variety of tutorials, each outlining how to write a certain kind of article. Each tutorial will be written by a different Inquisistor: this is not to say that people outside the Inquisitorius are not as good at writing Featured articles as those in it, it is simply that this is an Inquisitorius initiative.

Hopefully, these tutorials will be linked from the main page, and the idea is that we will encourage new users to write for Wookieepedia. This is meant to do away with the impression that "writing a Featured Article is difficult!"

Inquisitors: Please give yourself these roles as you see fit. Refrain from accepting more than one tutorial to write, as we want to have a lot of variety between them.

Note: Some of these tutorials may be split or consolidated, depending on how the project evolves

In addition to the tutorials, the Inquisitorius will be reviving its review system, which allows users to submit articles for evaluation, without nominating them for Featured article or Good article status. This, coupled with the tutorials, will hopefully give us a boost in active membership, and add to our ranks of dedicated writers. Thefourdotelipsis 04:41, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Hrm... seeing as how I'm currently working to get the Rodian article back to GA (and mebbe even to FA) status, a tutorial for Species articles would come in handy right about now. I wanna make sure I'm writing it properly, since I'm pretty much rewriting the whole thing from scratch. Trak Nar 07:28, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
  • I just wanted to comment that I think this is a great idea. Linking those tutorials on the main page will definetly be a big help for new users. Congratulations on this initiative Inquisistors! Carlitos Moff 22:07, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Quick Question.... I'd like to take on the species review role. But is this only for existing Inquisitorius members? And if so, could I go about becoming one to take on the role? Darth Xadún 10:01, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
    • I'm afraid the writing positions are only for Inquisitorius members at this point. There's no fast-track or assured way of becoming an Inquisistor, but the best way is to consistently review articles on the Featured article nominations page, and to maybe write some Featured articles yourself.

It's finally here, after all that waiting! Yep, I know you've all been anticipating this highly, so here it is. Inquisitors: I hope to see your own tutorials there soon. Thefourdotelipsis 02:34, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Fourdot: that's really good. I enjoyed reading it. Chack Jadson (Talk) 19:11, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
