Biology workgroup tasks
Suggestions for this page as recommended by Larry Sanger

Still to do: (i) a welcome message aimed at new editors in your area, and perhaps (ii) a link to a version of Citizendium_Pilot:Recruitment_Letter adapted for your discipline. And whatever else seems helpful! (Wiki hackers may notice that several of the above items can be put into a template. We might want to use navigational templates...have at it...)

How you can help
Tasks outlined by Larry Sanger

Launch list of top articles Right now, there is a partial list of high priority articles (see below). We need to transfer that into a different form, i.e., by placing "Category:Biology Workgroup (Top)" at the bottom of articles that are regarded as "high priority" for an area. Note, don't also mark an article you're tagging as "live" unless you've actually worked on it!

Launch workgroup tagging of articles In addition to tagging top articles, whether live or not, we also need to tag live articles according to their likely managing workgroup. So, for instance, one might go to "Category:CZ_Live" and at the bottom of the "xyz" article put "[[Category:Biology Workgroup]]". This means that we think the biology workgroup will be the main group to manage this article. Note, the tag is *not* "[[Category:Biology]]"; that's because we're attaching the article to its *management*.

Launch area managemnet: deferred We should probably defer selection of discipline workgroup management until after more people in each area have arrived, and we have had a chance to finalize how this management will be selected.

Proposed subgroups

The organisation we inherited from wikipedia is subdivided into disciplines within biology, however, we do not have to follow such a format. We can move forward with subgroups that seem more natural, and I imagine some subgroups will include several related disciplines. We can discuss this more on the subgroups thread, in the biology forum, as we reach a critcal mass of editors and authors.

Relevant lists and headers from wikipedia are shown at the bottom of this section. Also, the list of high priority articles in the next section are currently categorized by discipline.

High priority articles

This list of articles was copyed from the CZ:High priority articles for pilot page. It is not complete but it can be used as a starting point for placing "[[Category:Biology Workgroup (Top)]]" taggs. We need to decide which of the articles below should be classified as "Top" and the remainder should be tagged with "[[Category:Biology Workgroup]]" taggs.
