This is a page intended mainly for admin and editors, serving to list out the current Grammar Wiki priorities (and providing the relevant links).

Current "Big Picture" Priorities

  1. Revise the Grammar Points by Level lists to be as complete and level-appropriate as possible.
  2. Add more links to the grammar books' and textbooks' tables of contents on the Chinese textbook grammar index page
  3. Fill out the Learner FAQ page, and add appropriate links
  4. Complete all major Parts of speech pages, and add appropriate links
  5. Add further references to all pages, and improve articles overall "interlinkedness"
  6. Continue to add needed articles, clarification, and other useful information (top priority: useful comparisons)
  7. Fill out the Grammar functions pages, adding relevant links
  8. Fill out the Grammar structures pages, adding relevant links

Ongoing Maintenance Tasks

  1. Keep the Chinese Textbook Grammar Index up to date, adding needed textbooks with their appropriate grammar points, complete with proper Amazon affiliate links
  2. Update the Grammar Points by Level lists and add the appropriate grammar tag code links as new content is completed
  3. Keep the editor instructions page up to date
  4. Revise texts and links as necessary to be consistent with the style guide and editor instructions.
