Please join the discussions on our project's talk page. Suggested changes and additions to the WikiProject are always welcome there.

All disambiguation pages, as described at Wikipedia:Disambiguation.

First, please read Wikipedia:Manual of Style (disambiguation pages), which describes disambiguation pages; and Wikipedia:Disambiguation, which describes guidelines about when and how to disambiguate.

If you are an editor you can use these tools; if you are a coder you can help with these tools:

There are many instances where a new disambiguation page is needed.

Use "Foo" rather than "Foo (disambiguation)" as the disambiguation page name unless there is a primary topic. If "Foo" is a redirect to "Foo (disambiguation)", the disambiguation page is malplaced, and should be moved from "Foo (disambiguation)" to "Foo". In some cases, you may be able to use the move tool immediately. If the move requires technical assistance, you can report it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Disambiguation/Malplaced disambiguation pages#Manual list or list it at Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests.

There are still many disambiguation pages that do not yet contain all entries they are supposed to. To help with that, go to the Dabfix reports list and select "Missing entries". This will take you to the report where you can choose a dab page to expand. When you click on it, you will be presented with the Dabfix interface where that page is preloaded with the missing entries added and further changes suggested. Review the missing entry and the linked article to ensure they are suitable for inclusion (you can Ctrl+click (PC) or Command+click (Mac) on a blue link to be taken to the corresponding article) and then copyedit the automatically generated descriptions before saving. Alternatively, you can work manually using the information found in the report, or you can skip the report and let Dabfix choose a random disambiguation page for you to expand.

Pick a page from Disambiguation pages containing one non-primary topic, and see if you can find (or create) other articles in the wiki that can be added to turn a 2-DAB into a 3-or-more DAB.
