Welcome to WikiProject EastEnders. This WikiProject is a collaboration area and open group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of articles related to the 1985–present British soap opera television series EastEnders. We currently have 381 articles under the scope of this project, which generally includes articles where EastEnders is a relevant focus to the subject. This WikiProject aims primarily to improve and organise these articles in an attempt to establish a standard. Such an effort endeavours to produce a reference that has value as an authority on material within the television series, is easy to read, and has a consistent style.
The main criteria for inclusion should be notability. That being said, to avoid clutter and confusion, we should note the following.
Most characters that appear in EastEnders do not pass the notability guidelines on fiction. Each named character that appears should be included in one of the lists of characters by year, such as list of EastEnders characters (2010) (see Category:Lists of EastEnders characters for more). Even characters with a separate article should be included in these lists. Independent articles can be created if a character is able to pass the notability guidelines, but this should be discussed first (generally an article will be worked on as a draft first).
Illustrations for EastEnders-related articles are typically taken from screen captures and promotional images. As such they are nearly all non-free and must only be used in conformance with the Non-free content criteria. Exceptions include pictures of people involved in the production of EastEnders that have been released under free licenses, allowing third parties to modify images and use images commercially. For a gallery of free images relating to EastEnders, see here. Most non-free images currently in EastEnders-related articles lack detailed or sufficient fair use rationales justifying their use in the articles. Such images are in danger of deletion; you can remedy this by writing better rationales.
Similar to a collaboration, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article, a stub or an article in need of constant updating. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.
