Community initiative: Bring alterhumanity to Wikipedia!
Wikipedia is the single most consulted source of information on the internet. But have you looked at its article on otherkin? What do you think about it? Do you think it could be better? What about all the other alterhuman topics which don’t have articles at all?
We want you to help us improve the representation of alterhuman topics on Wikipedia, and therefore to the public in general.
And we’ve set up this project to do just that. By working together, we can:
- educate each other on how to make factual and useful edits to Wikipedia that won’t be removed, and back each other up when edits are challenged
- pool our research resources, using different people’s memory of alterhuman history and access to material to build good sources
- decide as a community which articles are worth our attention, what information is relevant, and how to write in ways that represent us fairly
- combat the systemic bias that’s inherent to Wikipedia’s structure
How can you help?
We wrote this guide to give you an introduction to how Wikipedia operates, different tasks you can do, and how to do them.
Then you can head to the #alth-projects channel in our Discord server or the project’s thread on the forum to let us know what you’ve accomplished! You can also suggest things to add to the to-do lists, get help with specific tasks, and just generally ask any questions or make any comments you might have.
You can also use the #AHWikiProject hashtag on social media to talk about this, share progress, tips, questions, and anything else!
We hope you’ll join us in making the internet’s favourite reference site a better ambassador for alterhumans!
