Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team release selections[edit]

The following articles have been selected for inclusion in one or more release versions of Wikipedia. Please help ensure that these articles remain of the highest possible quality.



When you find an article that either needs cleanup/rebuilding, needs to be built altogether, or otherwise could be improved upon, please add it here, so we can all help!


Article assessments[edit]

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Delaware}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Delaware articles by quality, Category:Delaware articles by importance, Category:Delaware articles needing attention. The quality and importance ratings serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.


The main templates page is located (temporarily) at /templates. This section lists the most commonly used and most general templates. For commenting, reference, and more in-depth template information, see the main template page.

Credit where it's due[edit]

This Project is clearly a blatant rip-off of WikiProject New Jersey, which in itself is a blatant rip-off of WikiProject Massachusetts, which, in turn, is a blatant rip-off of WikiProject Vermont, for which the creator of WP:WPDE (as I'm sure the other usurpers, as well) is eternally grateful, yet remoseful all at once.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. --DThomsen8 (talk) 11:18, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
