Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/Falun Gong work group

Welcome to the Falun Gong work group. Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Falun Gong and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.


  • The scope of this group is all articles dealing substantially with Falun Gong and related subjects. All these articles should be included in the Category:Falun Gong or one of its subcategories.


  • Create, improve and maintain articles dealing with Falun Gong and related subjects.
  • Maintain NPOV and a neutral reporting tone in Falun Gong articles.
  • Develop project guidelines for article content and quality.
  • Provide a central discussion forum for editing matters related to Falun Gong.
  • Facilitate dispute resolution and collaboration in the Falun Gong topic area.
  • Attact neutral outside editors for feedback and participation in the Falun Gong topic area.

What to type What it makes


There are several thousand articles on the subject of Falun Gong and related subjects on various subscription databanks. I do not claim to have access to all such subscription databanks, but I do have access to at least a few. If anyone else does not have easy access to such resources, please feel free to drop me an e-mail with an indication of the subject that you want articles on, and I will forward to you all the articles I can access from such databanks. I cannot and will not guarantee that each and every one of those articles will necessarily be particularly useful, as some can be quite short and be summarized reproductions of other existing articles, and I do not think I will necessarily have time to review all the articles and remove those which are such wireservice pickups.
