Several Wikipedians have formed a WikiProject to better organize information in articles related to the Beatles (including Apple Records). This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and/or see the to-do list.

The Beatles are the quintessential pop/rock group, indisputably the most celebrated and influential in history and, arguably, the most popular (as measured by several metrics: number of #1 hits, total sales, Beatlemania, etc.). There are already a considerable number of articles about the Beatles on Wikipedia, of varying levels of quality and depth. These range from featured articles, such as John Lennon, down to stubs of the lowest quality. This project seeks to marshall the efforts of interested editors to improve and unify these articles and to raise the overall standard of the Beatles' coverage on Wikipedia.

ScopeEdit

The scope of the project is articles about the Beatles and their work, and people and things directly related to—or who have achieved a significant part of their notability through their connection to—the Beatles as a group and individually.

GoalsEdit

Please discuss on the talk page or be bold and add some!

  1. Unify and improve articles about albums
  2. Unify and improve articles about the Fab Four
  3. Unify and improve song articles
  4. Unify and improve articles about post-Beatles bands (i.e. Traveling Wilburys)

GuidelinesEdit

Book referencesEdit

In accordance with Wikipedia policy, facts and assertions should be attributed to verifiable, reliable sources wherever possible (see WP:V and WP:RS).

The Project's preferred method for this is inline citations using the <ref> tag.

Usage is very simple:

Put the book in the "references" section:

* {{cite book|first=Mark |last=Lewisohn|authorlink=Mark Lewisohn|title=The Complete Beatles Chronicle|publisher=Chronicle Press|year=1996|isbn=978-1851529759|ref={{SfnRef|Lewisohn|1996}}}}

Citing the book in the article:

{{sfn|Lewisohn|1996|p=77}}

References from web pagesEdit

<ref name="WEBpageLennon">{{cite web|url=URLwebpage |title=Lennon and McCartney: The Truth |first=Andreas |last=Egde |page=1|publisher=[[The Times]] |date=8 December 2006 |accessdate=4 June 2011}}</ref>

LogEdit

The achievements of the WikiProject so far are recorded at Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Log. If you create a new article, perform a merge or achieve some other goal on behalf of the project please record it in the log. It's helpful and motivating for us all to see how we've progressed as a team.

Articles to be merged

Project assessmentEdit

ProjectsEdit

  1. Compile a list of current and missing articles, and catalogue them by status - see Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Assessment and Wikipedia:WikiProject_The_Beatles#Wikipedia_articles_on_The_Beatles
  2. Restore The Beatles to, and upgrade History of The Beatles to, featured article status. Alternative approaches (see Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/The Beatles history):
    • Seek peer review, and 'tweak'
    • Plan the article structure anew and major edit. Maybe History can be merged back in, and less substantial stuff forked out.
  3. Insert other projects (big jobs) here from Wikipedia talk:WikiProject The Beatles

  To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles:
 
Here are some tasks awaiting attention:


If you complete one of these tasks, please remove it from the list and add your achievement to the project log.

TasksEdit

  1. Buy a book about The Beatles
  2. Invite new members by contacting editors who have made substantial Beatles-related edits in the past
  3. Fix templates to talk pages
    • To do this, does anyone have a suggestion as to how to develop a list of the articles to do this to? There are so many different partial sets (the categories help). Or should an article only get the tagging as it is reviewed by one of us and improved? ++Lar: t/c 21:12, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Yep, use What Links Here for the Beatles' template, as discussed elsewhere on this (ever growing) page. That'll locate every article which uses the template, and any not properly categorised articles can be dealt with at the same time. But please don't mess up the lovely cat tree I spent a lot of time tidying :)
    If you're gonna do it, and if you're gonna do it in a web browser, might be best to reset your link cache first? Then you can see where you've been and where you haven't. With the cats, subcats and the template usage you'll find most articles more than once. --kingboyk 21:48, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
  4. Construct Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Assessment by following the category 'tree'(what that means is update this table: Wikipedia:WikiProject_The_Beatles/Categories as the automated code reads it and using what links here for The Beatles template. Can do the talk page notices at the same time.
  5. Assess articles at Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Assessment
  6. Apple Records discography - Needs British LPs and singles, and US LPs. Needs restructuring. I'd propose using the Brit catalog as the basis, and having only those releases which are different in the US section. This might not be practical, however, if the cat. no.s are different (they are for the singles, not sure for the albums).
    Blue links need to be checked for and, if they aren't already, added to Category:Apple Records singles or Category:Apple Records albums, and the same for The Beatles/solo members singles/albums categories.
  7. Add specific fair use rationales to Beatles-related copyrighted images, especially album covers (see Image:LetItBe.jpg for example).
  8. Add the geographic coordinates of The Beatles significant places as : Tittenhurst Park, Savile Row, St. Peter's Church, etc. As already exist for the Shea Stadium, Abbey Road or Friar Park. Completed by User:Billy.
  9. insert other tasks (smaller jobs) here from Wikipedia talk:WikiProject The Beatles

Adopt an articleEdit

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.

AssessmentEdit

Please see the Assessment department for further info.

Unsourced personnel, track listing sections etc.Edit

Like genre churn, an ongoing problem on Wikipedia is constant change to who played what instrument, who sang which vocals etc. In a proportion of Beatles articles, the relevant sections have been checked by editors against reliable sources and hence are supported by inline citations. This makes it a straightforward matter to revert any unexplained changes to the content of those sections. Please add articles where this has not yet been done to the list below. Include a diff if you want to provide an example of the churn that prompted the addition here.

For examples of sourced articles, see personnel sourced from Lewisohn and track listings sourced from Calkin and from Allmusic.

To take on one of the articles in this list, append Taken ~~~~ to the line, review and source the section in question, and then change "Taken" to "Done" here.

Red linksEdit

See Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles/Red links for a full list


Missing ArticlesEdit

Redlinks which need to be turned blue at the earliest opportunity need to be listed here. If you can help by creating a stub (or better!) please be bold and go right ahead (In brackets: number of incoming links from main space, excluding redirects and dab pages):

Article creation instructionsEdit

You're starting a new article? Great! Please follow these instructions:

  • Articles about The Beatles are generally considered to be articles with a "strong tie" to the dialect of the United Kingdom and should be written in British English.
  • Add the new article to the appropriate subcategory of Category:The Beatles, or to the parent category if most appropriate
  • Add any appropriate template to the article, such as an album or single infobox
  • Place a {{WPBeatles}} template on the new article's Talk page
  • If the article is listed as a redlink on the to-do list please remove it from that list
  • If the article needs a photo and you don't have one, place a {{Photo requested}} template on the talk page and add the article to "Wanted Pics/Graphics" on the the to-do list
  • List the article in the appropriate category on the Article Classification list. Don't classify it yourself, it's best if we classify each other's articles not our own
  • Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Main Wikipedia page. DYK has a 120-hour time limit (from the creation of the article, not the nomination).
  • Finally (hooray!) record your wonderful achievement on the Project Log

TemplatesEdit

There are a lot of useful templates that may be relevant, infoboxes, notification boxes and so forth. If you know of any resources not listed here, please add them!

InfoboxesEdit

There are several useful infoboxes that are relevant to this project, as the project covers a large number of types of articles.

Infobox AlbumEdit

In addition to the writeup on the talk page of the infobox, the WikiProject Albums page has some discussion on how to effectively use these, color coding, and what some of the fields mean and so forth, as well as larger guidance on how Album pages ought to be done (how the track list is formatted, dates, usages, and so forth).

Some important points copied from that page: When you create or find a new album page, please add {{WikiProject Albums}} to the top of the talk page. If the page has no infobox, you should use {{WikiProject Albums|needs-infobox=yes}} instead. If the page has an incomplete infobox, note the missing details at Incomplete infobox. If the page has an old style infobox, add {{newinfobox|type=album}} to the bottom of the talk page.

Infobox Musical artistEdit

Infobox PersonEdit

Infobox songEdit

  • The Beatles produced singles, together and individually. So the {{Infobox Song}} template is likely to be useful. Hopefully most relevant articles have it already by now, but this is something to check for. Some examples:

Note that the template supports ordering of singles by when they charted.

Invite userEdit

If you see someone that might have an interest in the project, you can place {{WikiProject The Beatles Invite}} on their userpage to invite them:

  Hi! I've seen you around on The Beatles' articles... Would you consider becoming a member of WikiProject The Beatles, a WikiProject which aims to expand and improve coverage of The Beatles on Wikipedia? Please feel free to join us.
Abbey Road... You're not in this picture... yet!
  • DO put some commentary below it, explaining WHY they might be interested, and sign. Alternatively, you may leave a message and sign within the template by supplying an optional parameter
  • DO NOT spam people extensively, give it some thought first and don't invite too many people at once.

It makes sense to grow the project participation slowly so use with care. But it's a fun template, a bit more attention grabbing than just a note.

NavboxesEdit

  • Use {{The Beatles main}} for major articles. Place it at the bottom of the article. The result is:

Project bannerEdit

Place {{WikiProject The Beatles|class= |importance= }} on the talk page of an article that you think belongs in the project:

WikiProject The Beatles (Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)
This Beatles-related page is within the scope of WikiProject The Beatles, which focuses on improving coverage of English rock band The Beatles and related topics on Wikipedia. Users who are willing to participate in the project should visit the project page, where they can join and see a list of open tasks.
  Start  This page does not require a rating on the project's quality scale.
 Mid  This page has been rated as Mid-importance on the project's importance scale.

StubsEdit

NOTE: stubs are managed by the Stub-sorting WikiProject. Before creating a new stub, you should propose it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals. See Wikipedia:Stub for general guidelines on creating stub templates and categories. It is inadbisable to create new stub templates without consultation as these will probably be nominated for deletion.

UserboxesEdit

You can place {{User WikiProject The Beatles}} on your userpage to show project membership:

Alternatively or in addition, you can place {{User WikiProject The Beatles 2}} on your userpage to show project membership:

Placing one of these on your pages is entirely optional, but it is a way to show your involvement to others... That's good for the project, as we have lots of work to do!

BarnstarEdit

The {{Beatles barnstar}} may be awarded by any editor to another editor who has made a significant contribution to the WikiProject and/or to articles about the Beatles and related topics. Neither editor need be a registered member of the WikiProject.

To award the template, add the following to the recipient's talk page:

{{subst:Beatles barnstar|Put your message here. ~~~~}}

ResourcesEdit

This should be a list of useful resources to the project that will aid in research, article creation, or that may be a source of images that are freely usable by the project. Please add to this list as you find items. Assume that project members know about common things, like IMDB.

Musicologist Allan W. Pollack has taken an in-depth look at each of the Beatles' songs from a musicological point of view. Wordy, but with a lot of meat, and definitely helpful in adding length to articles on songs - also useful to add as an external link to song articles.
