This project covers the creation and editing of articles related to the U.S. State of Minnesota, its cities, counties, geography, transportation, culture, history, and so on. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on Minnesota in a NPOV and accurate manner.

This WikiProject was formed to coordinate the development of better articles on the U.S. state of Minnesota. This page and its subpages contain suggestions on formatting and layout of articles, which can be discussed at the project's talk page.

Importance Scale

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of the Minnesota.

Project divisions and current tasks

Use these pages to gather information and resources for use in developing Minnesota-related articles. Tasks should be listed as subpoints under the relevant item.

New article patrol

The "Alex New Article Bot" logs all new articles with "Minnesota" and other related words to a page. This is the workflow for dealing with them

  1. The bot logs new articles to User:AlexNewArtBot/MinnesotaSearchResult, with the newest articles at the top
  2. Review the pages checking for notability, copyvios, wikify etc.
  3. If the article falls under WP:MN and is relevant then add WikiProject Minnesota template as {{WikiProject Minnesota}}.
  4. Strike the article through showing it has been reviewed

Template stating this article is a part of this wikiproject. It is also used to rank and rate pages for wikipedia 1.0. Placed on the top of talk pages, not on article pages. When pages are rated they are automatically placed into subcategories of Category:Minnesota articles by importance or Category:Minnesota articles by quality. In those categories automatic summary and statistics pages are created by User:Mathbot.Those categories also have criteria for how ranking is performed.
