Note: Read general policies related to payment for new and existing timelines [1]

New timeline

Remove from list when updated to contract work page [2] and [3].

  • Timeline of NTT Docomo
  • Timeline of Tata Group
    • "Instead of one "Category" column, there should be three columns, for event type, domain (e.g., education versus beverages versus manufacturing versus transport), and a column for the subsidiary name"✔
    • Include information on Singur Tata Nano controversy
    • I think the 20th century part of the big picture should be broken down into the period till independence of India (1947) and the 1947 to 1991 period (1991 was the year of liberalisation). I think the 21st century can be extended to the period starting 1991✔
    • With this big picture breakdown, there should be more discussion of the impact of the Indian government and government policy on Tata. e.g., after independence, the impact of the goverrnment taking over Tata Airlines, and the high tax rates. Similarly, the impact of liberalisation and how Tata Group was one of the conglomerates in India that were able to benefit from liberalisation✔
  • Timeline of Tumblr
    • The row about SSL in February 2014 should talk about "HTTPS" which is a more easily understood concept. See the corresponding row in Timeline of HTTPS adoption for some alternate wording.✔ (I copy-pasted the event from the Timeline of HTTPS adoption, as I couldn't find "HTTPS" in the two given references ([4], [5]).
    • The fact that Automattic is the company that manages WordPress should be mentioned in the big picture, not just the full timeline.✔
    • The fact that Tumblr was under Oath Corporation after being acquired by Verizon should be mentioned in the full timeline, not just the big picture.✔
    • Add some links to the See also section; I think timeline of Reddit should definitely be linked but you may also want to link other social network timelines.✔
  • Timeline of Reliance Industries Limited
  • Timeline of Infosys (Tentative payment accepted)
    • There are two rows for Infosys moving their corporate headquarters in 1994; remove one of them✔
    • Explicitly mention Jay Palmer and Palmer v. Infosys since this is something people may search for✔
    • Talk more about competition✔
  • Timeline of Helen Keller International (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Combined timeline of malaria organizations (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of bicycle transportation: (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of food and nutrition in India (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of Neuralink (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of WikiLeaks (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of Cloudflare (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of startup incubators and accelerators (Tentative payment accepted)
    • It would be good to add a column specifying whether the row is about incubators or accelerators✔
    • I'm wondering if we can make the geographical location column more specific. It should still start with the country, but the state and city can be included parenthetically, as with the timeline of bicycle sharing systems
    • I think some closure/shutdown-type stuff might be worth including (have any accelerators shut down? e.g., Blueseed is suspended, basically, see ✔ (I checked the sources, and found no closure so far, other than end of seasons)

Priority work from Vipul

By the start of Giving Season (December 8, 2019)

By the beginning of next year (January 1, 2020)

  • Timeline of WeWork: Recent-events-expansion. The timeline goes up to November 2017, so two years ago. It looks like a lot has happened at WeWork since then, and it's in the news of late for having business troubles and needing to shut down all its non-core businesses. I think it'll be good to expand it soon so that we can capture more of the interest people have in the company's fate (but not too soon, so we should wait for some of the news to settle down so we can get all the recent events when we expand).
  • Timeline of Bitcoin
  • New timeline: Timeline of malnutrition

Not ready

Pending expansion

Note: Vipul use ✘ for works you are not interested in (quicker than using strikes).

Subwiki projects

Subwiki purpose: "Mostly for in-depth exploration/understanding of specific topics, but still not in any sequence (so people can jump directly to a specific page)". Read this: [33]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [34]
  • A table of plasmodia

Marking tools: Use ✔ ✘
