Looking for something to do to improve this wiki, but can't think of anything? Looking for a few small, quick improvements to make while you plan your next big project? Here are some suggestions.

Merge articles that need merging[]

Sometimes, two users get the same idea for an article, but put them on pages with different names. When we find them, we tag them to be merged, in hopes someone will combine the two into a single, cohesive article.

Source an unsourced article[]

Some of our articles may have been created without proper source citation. Sources are important so people will know were the ideas described in the article stem from.

Create redlink articles[]

Many articles reference topics that have not been addressed yet, creating redlinks. Some reference many such topics; these articles are less useful to our users, because much of the related information they might want to seek is unavailable. It is helpful to create new articles to fill in the gaps of these articles with an excess of redlinks.

Create a wanted page[]

Some topics are referenced by a great many pages, but haven't had an article created about them yet. You can find a list of these heavily-referenced topics, sorted by how many references they have, here.

Create a requested page[]

Users sometimes request the creation of a particular article. You can find a list of such requests here.

Fix double redirects[]

Sometimes, an article redirects to another article, which in turn redirects to yet another article. When this happens, instead of smoothly being redirected, a user must instead manually click through to the third page. In order to prevent this, we try to eliminate double redirects, pointing all redirects at their final destination. You can find a list of double redirects here.

Categorize a page[]

Categories assist in easy navigation by grouping similar topics together. You can find a list of articles in need of categorization here.

Expand a short page[]

Some articles are merely placeholders, waiting for someone to come along and expand upon them. You can find a list of our shortest pages, sorted in order of their brevity, here.
