Some Wikipedians have formed a project to improve organisation and standardised look and feel of articles related to the Indian state of Karnataka.

If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

Project Scope[edit]

The scope of this project is essentially creation and curation of articles and sections relating to Karnataka. Almost all of these will be (eventually) categorised under Category:Karnataka and Category:India


Project Goals[edit]

(Arunram: These goals needs a review for coverage and currency by the volunteers)

  1. Creation of a generally standard look and feel for all Karnataka-related articles.
  2. To produce as many Featured Articles as possible related to Karnataka.
  3. To produce as many Good Articles as possible related to Karnataka.
  4. To write as many Did you know articles as possible related to Karnataka.
  5. Karnataka-related Tourist Attractions to be given more importance and it should be improved with suitable images of the places, since these articles will be read by many from outside India.
  6. Those who read about Karnataka should have the feeling that they should visit Karnataka and India.

Member identification

Members of WikiProject Karnataka should place one of the following lines of Wikitext on their user page to add it to Category:WikiProject Karnataka participants.

Wikitext userbox where used
[[Category:WikiProject Karnataka participants]] none linked pages
((Template:User WikiProject Karnataka)) linked pages

For other Karnataka user templates, see Category:Karnataka user templates.


Departments are groups of members who do specific work. Tasks include authoring, maintaining the project pages, administering portals, adding articles, participating in reviews, managing the project and so on. The following is a list of departments within the WikiProject. WikiProject Members may not necessarily do only departmental tasks. They can contribute content as a member of Work Groups as well.


The outreach department guides its members on strengthening the sense of community in this project. Members' tasks include welcoming new members in the project, helping other editors in the project, managing the newsletters and helping the general project community to be in touch.

Article Collaboration

The Current Karnataka Collaboration seeks to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. Every week, a single article is selected as the focus, and the project attempts to improve it, potentially to featured article standards.

Any articles dealing with some aspect of Karnataka (except for current featured articles and featured article candidates) are eligible, and everyone is invited to nominate articles.



Lot of articles in Karnataka related to People, Places, Culture, Natural wonders do not have pictures to support them. Bangalore is the home of numerous photography clubs. Creating awareness and requesting contributions to commons would go a long way in articles being more comprehensive.

Also there is little audio and video content on Karnataka. This would be a big benefit for articles related to Dance and Art forms or people. We would like to encourage content contributions in this area.

Karnataka 100

This initiative would be to choose a subset of the Karnataka1000 article list that is truly representative of Karnataka across various facets. The Karnataka100 would then be the focus of translations across Indian language wikis and other international language wikis.

At this stage we would involve translators from other languages or projects.

Potential Indic languages for translation of Kannada100 are:

  1. Tamil
  2. Malayalam
  3. Telugu
  4. Hindi
  5. Bengali
  6. Marathi
  7. Marathi
  8. Gujarati
  9. Urdu
  10. Sanskrit
