WikiProject Cleanup is a resource for Wikipedia cleanup information, to post cleanup requests, and discussion. This project covers cleanup issues including page layout, wikification, spelling, grammar and typographical errors, tone, and sourcing. All users are welcome to help edit or fix any page on these lists.

Please post article cleanup requests below this message, and sign your posts. Editors will cleanup your submitted articles and may fix other issues associated with the article.

Please remove the appropriate tag(s) from the article after cleaning it, and then strike-through the entry on this page using <s> </s>, which produces: this. Do not strike the user signature and timestamp. Please consider also documenting improvements on the article's talk page or in edit summaries for the benefit of other editors.

  • Dhavali - Large non-english section. Vandalism, but I can't help here because I don't have any expertise on this field. --Steinfeld-feld (talk) 22:56, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done I removed the Non-English Section and Cleaned up the language but this article still needs a ton of work. AmericanAir88 (talk) 04:33, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Vanjari - Poorly written, no references. Only reference used is from an unreliable website.

November

  • Chor-Bakr - based on a single source full of errors, see talk page --Bjs (talk) 16:22, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Pre-lucid dream - Needs work in areas of refs, wikilinks, and WP:MOS. Phuzion (talk) 17:22, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Cuvette - I started working on this as part of the Nov 2017 WP:GOCE copyedit drive, but the article needs more extensive cleanup. I would appreciate help to expand references/in-line citations, improve reference quality, revise for relevance/accuracy/clarity/scope, copyedit/rewrite sections with non-encyclopedic language. Thank you! Laatu (talk) 14:45, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Acme Monaco - External links inline the article. Reads like a advert and in general the style of this article is confusing, including many IP edits. --Steinfeld-feld (talk) 19:59, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
Article has been Deleted from an outside person.AmericanAir88 (talk)
Fixed by Derek R Bullamore. North America1000 04:27, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

October

  • yellow tickY Partly done Reference errors all fixed, and some references moved to improved templates. Still needs additional work. A Traintalk 22:45, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

September

August

  • The article presently does not have bare urls. North America1000 23:45, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

July

April

March

  • Aston Martin - Have started badly needed cleanup, lots of outdated, and sometimes wrong information. Article will need a general refurbishment after the worst has been fixed. All help appreciated. BsBsBs (talk) 08:02, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

2016 posts

December

  • Twelve Swords of Power - Multiple issues. At least 6 aging maintenance tags on this one. Not sure what the best approach would be for this one but above all else it definitely needs a trim. -- œ 05:59, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

November

  • Nalanda Buddhist Institute, Bhutan - Several issues. Most sections lack any citation and sources are not clear. Three images used in the article are marked with a © (copyright character). (Are these photos copyright?) Chris Fynn (talk) 13:33, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Book of Mormon chronology - Significant format and style issues. Also fairly obscure content found in context in other pages. Finally, concerned about overly positive POV vs. neutrality.
