|This page is a detailed instruction set for creating a new WikiProject. For more general guidance on WikiProjects, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Guide.|
This page provides instructions and advice for setting up a new WikiProject and for using the various resources that community members have developed for organizing WikiProjects' efforts.
A WikiProject is a group of people who want to work together to improve Wikipedia. The WikiProject is the people, not the pages they use to coordinate their work, nor the subject area that interests them. This page provides advice on how to organize discussions and administrative issues so that the team can work efficiently, but the most important task for a new WikiProject is to recruit and retain that group of editors.
