wikiHow:UNICEF Action List


Atlas, it's time for your bath 8812.jpg

This is the action page. It's a brief overview of the UNICEF/wikiHow Collaboration project to help get you going. Other more detailed information is linked and ideas for article topics are kept here.

EditGet Set, Ready, Go!

  1. Add your name: place your name on the the UNICEF/wikiHow Team. You don't have to be a member of the UNICEF/wikiHow Team to take part in this project, but we'd love it if you joined.
  1. Read: Read Select and Create Wikihow Articles for UNICEF and this Action List.
  2. Start. You can get stuck straight in:

    • create new articles
    • suggest articles and place the {{UNICEF}} tag on the Discussion Page
    • edit and polish existing and created articles
    • make suggestions
    • HELP needed: please check this area frequently to see if there are things to help out with

EditNeed Info?

To start with, you can ask Felicity for more information. As the collaboration proceeds, however, you'll probably bounce ideas and information off one another, so please update this Info/Help section by adding your name as well.

EditHelp Wanted Bulletin Board

This is the section where we leave messages asking for help. We've got one already!

HELP needed: would somebody kindly create a UNICEF UIB for participants to place on their user pages? Please let Felicity know if you can do this.


All updates information and alerts on this project will be provided on the Collaboration Corner forum and in this section.
