Several Wikipedians have formed a WikiProject to better organize information in articles related to the Beatles (including Apple Records). This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and/or see the to-do list.

The Beatles are the quintessential pop/rock group, indisputably the most celebrated and influential in history and, arguably, the most popular (as measured by several metrics: number of #1 hits, total sales, Beatlemania, etc.). There are already a considerable number of articles about the Beatles on Wikipedia, of varying levels of quality and depth. These range from featured articles, such as John Lennon, down to stubs of the lowest quality. This project seeks to marshall the efforts of interested editors to improve and unify these articles and to raise the overall standard of the Beatles' coverage on Wikipedia.

Scope

The scope of the project is articles about the Beatles and their work, and people and things directly related to—or who have achieved a significant part of their notability through their connection to—the Beatles as a group and individually.

Goals

Please discuss on the talk page or be bold and add some!

  1. Unify and improve articles about albums
  2. Unify and improve articles about the Fab Four
  3. Unify and improve song articles
  4. Unify and improve articles about post-Beatles bands (i.e. Traveling Wilburys)

Guidelines

Book references

In accordance with Wikipedia policy, facts and assertions should be attributed to verifiable, reliable sources wherever possible (see WP:V and WP:RS).

The Project's preferred method for this is inline citations using the <ref> tag.

Usage is very simple:

Put the book in the "references" section:

* ((cite book |last=Lewisohn |first=Mark |year=1992 |edition=2010 |location=Chicago |title=The Complete Beatles Chronicle:The Definitive Day-By-Day Guide To the Beatles' Entire Career |publisher=[[Chicago Review Press]] |isbn=978-1-56976-534-0 ))

Citing the book in the article:

((sfn|Lewisohn|1996|p=77))

References from web pages

<ref name="WEBpageLennon">((cite web|url=URLwebpage |title=Lennon and McCartney: The Truth |first=Andreas |last=Egde |page=1|publisher=[[The Times]] |date=8 December 2006 |access-date=4 June 2011))</ref>

Project assessment

Projects

  1. Compile a list of current and missing articles, and catalogue them by status – see Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Assessment and Wikipedia:WikiProject_The_Beatles#Wikipedia_articles_on_The_Beatles
  2. Restore The Beatles to, and upgrade History of The Beatles to, featured article status. Alternative approaches (see Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/The Beatles history):
    • Seek peer review, and 'tweak'
    • Plan the article structure anew and major edit. Maybe History can be merged back in, and less substantial stuff forked out.
  3. Insert other projects (big jobs) here from Wikipedia talk:WikiProject The Beatles

To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:


If you complete one of these tasks, please remove it from the list and add your achievement to the project log.

Tasks

  1. Buy a book about the Beatles
  2. Invite new members by contacting editors who have made substantial Beatles-related edits in the past
  3. Fix templates to talk pages
    • To do this, does anyone have a suggestion as to how to develop a list of the articles to do this to? There are so many different partial sets (the categories help). Or should an article only get the tagging as it is reviewed by one of us and improved? ++Lar: t/c 21:12, 4 March 2006 (UTC)[reply]
    • Yep, use What Links Here for the Beatles' template, as discussed elsewhere on this (ever growing) page. That'll locate every article which uses the template, and any not properly categorised articles can be dealt with at the same time. But please don't mess up the lovely cat tree I spent a lot of time tidying :)
    If you're gonna do it, and if you're gonna do it in a web browser, might be best to reset your link cache first? Then you can see where you've been and where you haven't. With the cats, subcats and the template usage you'll find most articles more than once. --kingboyk 21:48, 4 March 2006 (UTC)[reply]
  4. Construct Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Assessment by following the category 'tree'(what that means is update this table: Wikipedia:WikiProject_The_Beatles/Categories as the automated code reads it and using what links here for The Beatles template. Can do the talk page notices at the same time.
  5. Assess articles at Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Assessment
  6. Apple Records discography – Needs British LPs and singles, and US LPs. Needs restructuring. I'd propose using the Brit catalog as the basis, and having only those releases which are different in the US section. This might not be practical, however, if the cat. no.s are different (they are for the singles, not sure for the albums).
    Blue links need to be checked for and, if they aren't already, added to Category:Apple Records singles or Category:Apple Records albums, and the same for The Beatles/solo members singles/albums categories.
  7. Add specific fair use rationales to Beatles-related copyrighted images, especially album covers (see Image:LetItBe.jpg for example).
  8. Add the geographic coordinates of The Beatles significant places as : Tittenhurst Park, Savile Row, St. Peter's Church, etc. As already exist for the Shea Stadium, Abbey Road or Friar Park. Completed by User:Billy.
  9. insert other tasks (smaller jobs) here from Wikipedia talk:WikiProject The Beatles

Adopt an article

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.

GA nominations

Articles that could be GA

Review and assessment

Assessment

Please see the Assessment department for further info.

Unsourced personnel, track listing sections etc.

Like genre churn, an ongoing problem on Wikipedia is constant change to who played what instrument, who sang which vocals etc. In a proportion of Beatles articles, the relevant sections have been checked by editors against reliable sources and hence are supported by inline citations. This makes it a straightforward matter to revert any unexplained changes to the content of those sections. Please add articles where this has not yet been done to the list below. Include a diff if you want to provide an example of the churn that prompted the addition here.

For examples of sourced articles, see personnel sourced from Lewisohn and track listings sourced from Calkin and from Allmusic.

To take on one of the articles in this list, append Taken ~~~~ to the line, review and source the section in question, and then change "Taken" to "Done" here.

Red links

See Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Red links for a full list


Missing Articles

Redlinks which need to be turned blue at the earliest opportunity need to be listed here. If you can help by creating a stub (or better!) please be bold and go right ahead (In brackets: number of incoming links from main space, excluding redirects and dab pages):

Templates

There are a lot of useful templates that may be relevant, infoboxes, notification boxes and so forth. If you know of any resources not listed here, please add them!

Infoboxes

There are several useful infoboxes that are relevant to this project, as the project covers a large number of types of articles.

Infobox Album

In addition to the writeup on the talk page of the infobox, the WikiProject Albums page has some discussion on how to effectively use these, color coding, and what some of the fields mean and so forth, as well as larger guidance on how Album pages ought to be done (how the track list is formatted, dates, usages, and so forth).

Some important points copied from that page: When you create or find a new album page, please add ((WikiProject Albums)) to the top of the talk page. If the page has no infobox, you should use ((WikiProject Albums|needs-infobox=yes)) instead. If the page has an incomplete infobox, note the missing details at Incomplete infobox. If the page has an old style infobox, add ((newinfobox|type=album)) to the bottom of the talk page.

Infobox Musical artist

Infobox Person

Infobox song

Note that the template supports ordering of singles by when they charted.

If you complete one of these tasks, please remove it from the list and add your achievement to the project log.

It makes sense to grow the project participation slowly so use with care. But it's a fun template, a bit more attention grabbing than just a note.

Stubs

NOTE: stubs are managed by the Stub-sorting WikiProject. Before creating a new stub, you should propose it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals. See Wikipedia:Stub for general guidelines on creating stub templates and categories. It is inadbisable to create new stub templates without consultation as these will probably be nominated for deletion.

Userboxes

You can place ((User WikiProject The Beatles)) on your userpage to show project membership:

Alternatively or in addition, you can place ((User WikiProject The Beatles 2)) on your userpage to show project membership:

Placing one of these on your pages is entirely optional, but it is a way to show your involvement to others... That's good for the project, as we have lots of work to do!

Barnstar

The ((Beatles barnstar)) may be awarded by any editor to another editor who has made a significant contribution to the WikiProject and/or to articles about the Beatles and related topics. Neither editor need be a registered member of the WikiProject.

To award the template, add the following to the recipient's talk page:

Resources

This should be a list of useful resources to the project that will aid in research, article creation, or that may be a source of images that are freely usable by the project. Please add to this list as you find items. Assume that project members know about common things, like IMDB.

Musicologist Allan W. Pollack has taken an in-depth look at each of the Beatles' songs from a musicological point of view. Wordy, but with a lot of meat, and definitely helpful in adding length to articles on songs – also useful to add as an external link to song articles.
