Wikipedia:Challenges, these seem like quite an interesting thing to implement into our wikia. These could be a way to reduce the stubs and get more of the wiki readers involved into active editing. My idea would be exactly the same as wikipedia, people add pages that they might not know a lot about to the page and other more knowledgeable editors complete the request. The more ways we can turn viewers of the wikia into good editors the better imo. Karis Talk to me 22:02, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Question - I don't know wikipedia so I do not know how this would work, Can you explain a little more? --Degenret01 06:33, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Its a part of the cleanup work. Lets say you didn't know anything about Godswords, but you saw the godsword article could really do with some work. You would put it on the challenge page and an editor would go and work on it and fix it to a high standard. Karis Talk to me 09:50, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't see how this would make a difference. It'd probably fill up as much as Category:Stubs and just like the stubs, there would be no one working on it. That's just what I think will happen, there won't be much of a difference. C.ChiamTalk 10:13, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Neutral - If it works, then it would be great... but I'm not sure that it will. Much per Caleb, I don't think we have have enough dedicated editors to keep the list from becoming a copy of :Category:Marked articles|the various marked articles.

Support - I was first gonna say, Neutral. But then I was thinking, it is a page. So those few dedicated and experienced editors can watch that page, and remove any submitted articles, that are just hopeless to grow much bigger. That way the list stays quite a list still, but not so big that you blink your eyes and go elsewhere on the wiki. Adult chameleon (automatic).png Anurin Talk · Sign! . 00:43, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Support with condition - My condition is that, while the page is designed to attract editors who are knowledgeable in the subject, we must allow anyone to contribute, per RS:AEAE, instead of letting something like this and this happen. Butterman62 (talk) 22:05, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
