How to Make a wikiHow Team

wikiHow has endless projects and needs teams of editors to accomplish certain activities. This article explains how you might be able to create a wikiHow team.


  1. 1
    Decide upon a purpose. Do articles need to be perfected or requests answered within a certain category?
  2. 2
    Search wikiHow for duplicates. Be sure the same team does not already exist. Do not create a team that takes on the same responsibilities of several other teams.
  3. 3
    Create a name based upon the team's purpose. Use abbreviations, nicknames or create a rhyming name.
  4. 4
    Create a Team Page. Review other team pages for inspiration.
    • Add "wikiHow" prior to the name of your team.
    • Describe goals and how the team works.
    • Describe how to become a member.
    • Provide links to team members and related pages.
    • Categorize all pages in the Projects and Teams category.
  5. 5
    Create templates for the team.
    • Create a UIB for members' User pages.
    • Create a template to invite others to join.
    • Create a template to nominate articles you'd like to improve.
    • Create award templates to congratulate team members.
  6. 6
    Categorize your UIB, welcome message and templates.
  7. 7
    Keep your team pages up-to-date.
  8. 8
    List your team on the Central Project Page.
