The collaboration requests are pages for which contributions would be particularly helpful.
Editors place pages here if further expertise can help things along, or if they don't have the time or resources to finish articles that will be of use to the community. These are "things everybody (maybe within a certain area) know should be done, but isn't on their agenda any time soon".
These pages may be useful for e.g. giving to mentees to develop their skills, helping new contributors who don't know where to start (or what they can help with), or GSoC projects.
Even if some of the pages listed here are in the user namespace, corrections and additions are much appreciated! Pages will be moved to the main namspace when done.
Adding to this page
To add a page to this list, simply include the User:Ris/Template:Userspace collaboration template at the top of the page, as so:
This will automatically add the page to this list, opening it up to changes from other users, and will add a note at the top of the page.
It seems that this list currently does not update itself when the User:Ris/Template:Userspace collaboration template is added to a new page. After adding the template, make a trivial, invisible change to this page and save it, to refresh the list. Looking for fix, suggestions welcome.
Remember to include an [[Article description:: ]] property on pages with the User:Ris/Template:Userspace collaboration template, to provide an indication of what the page is about.
Once this pages is moved into the Main namespace, the syntax will become much simpler.
User pages accepting contributions
Pages under user namespaces aren't usually open to edits from other users. By adding a page to this list, it shows that edits from other users are accepted, and the page will be put forward for contributions.
These pages are drafts started by wiki editors in their User namespace while they are developed, and on which the authors would appreciate help. Please contribute if you can!
