(in Inglis) January's writing drive is going to focus on stub articles that need their Scots fixing. There are about 2700 articles on Scots wiki that are still tagged as needing their Scots fixed, and about 1800 of these are stubs. Many of these are just a couple of lines long, so we've got a really good opportunity here to make a big dent in that 2700 number!

What to do:

  • Sign up to the Dashboard
  • Pick an article from the list linked below
  • Fix the language so that you're happy that it's really in Scots
  • Do a bit more clean up if you like - delete any unnecessary red links, add to the article, add citations
  • Once you're happy, delete the box at the top of the article that says " The "Scots" that wis uised in this airticle wis written bi a body that haesna a guid grip on the leid."

And that's it!

As ever we'll also have tasks for folks who aren't as confident in their written Scots, and Zoom sessions during the week for folks who'd like to get together with other editors online for some social editing, or for any Wiki-related questions.

The theme is Stubs, focusin on airticles needin thair Scots sortit.
