The "cookie jar" is a container for a collection of small, well-defined tasks. Each could be completed by someone with appropriate subject knowledge and a modest time commitment.

This page merely explains the concept. Go to the real cookie jar for the actual task list. Before you start writing a page from the cookie jar remember to check the Talk (discussion) page to see if there is any additional information that will make your life easier!

Maintaining the list of items in the cookie jar is now largely automatic. An article (or rather an empty page where the article will be) can be added to the cookie jar by simply including {{cookiejar}} in the page. Once the page has been written it can be removed from the cookie jar by removing the {{cookiejar}} again.


Proofreading and copy editing

If you don't feel comfortable writing contents from scratch, we always need people to proofread and copy edit.
