WookieeProject Ambition is a WookieeProject focused on bringing Galactic Empire-related articles up to Featured Article or Good Article status and maintaining these articles long after their nominations are over. The project's name has a twofold meaning; it is both a reference to the in-universe Project Ambition, and the ambitious undertaking of the WookieeProject's members.

All contributing Wookieepedians are invited to join the project as writers or editors. Simply sign your name at the bottom in the respective sections (writer or editor) using three tildes (~~~).

InstructionsEdit

For writersEdit

  1. Write balanced and without POV.
  2. Do not add any speculation to an article.
  3. Source all information in articles (infoboxes, succession boxes, paragraphs, etc.) with either reference tags or self-sourcing paragraphs. Please refer to the sourcing policy for complete instructions on how to add citations to articles.
  4. Write about whatever interests you, but try and help out with the current main focus as well.
  5. Try and focus on one or two projects at a time, thereby making sure not too many articles are added to the "Works in progress" section.
  6. If the Manual of Style and Layout Guide are prohibiting you from contributing your best, please post a start a new forum thread in our discussion area. The editors will help you fix any problems or concerns.
  7. Reference information by citing individual comic issues. Please do not cite using simply the story arc and/or TPB. If you are unable to source by individual issues, please contact a project editor and/or start a new forum thread in our discussion area, and you'll receive help as soon as possible.

For editorsEdit

  1. Make sure articles have flawless grammar and spelling.
  2. Fix articles to comply with the Manual of Style and Layout Guide.
  3. Fix templates and excessive links.
  4. Make sure all information is sourced per our sourcing policy.
  5. Make sure all quotes and pictures are properly formatted, attributed, and sourced.
  6. Search for new items for the "Appearances" and "Sources" sections of an article.

General rules for both writers and editorsEdit

  1. Get to know your fellow project-members so that you can get a sense of the Project's attitude and each member's opinions on what should be merged, expanded, and so on. This will allow you to work better with the team, especially on major projects.
  2. Attempt to take part in discussions and debates relating to Galactic Empire articles, including merges, citations, other references, image issues, splits, cleanup, formatting, and expansion.
  3. Reduce trivial information, speculation, point of view, and anything else that violates Wookieepedia's article guidelines.
  4. Within human-reason, attempt monitor all Empire-related articles for violations of anything listed in the above two parts.
  5. Make sure you cite all information you add, that you follow the Wookieepedia's guidelines in addition to style and layout, and follow the discussions and agreements established by both the Project and wider site.
  6. Take part in bringing numerous articles to Good Article and Featured Article status.
  7. For articles that cannot reach either GA or FA status, still attempt to make these articles as complete as possible — remember, the goal of this project is to make Wookieepedia a readily reliable source for all things related to the Empire, no matter how large or small.

What not to doEdit

  1. Do not add unsourced information to any article.
  2. Do not engage in edit wars. These types of conflicts will only damage both your reputation and that of WP:AMB. If you require assistance and/or guidance in helping deal with something such as this, please contact your fellow Project-members for help.
  3. Do not add original research, speculation, point of view, vandalism, or patent nonsense.
