The cleanup page is a place where articles with problems (ungrammatical, poorly formatted, confused, etc.) can be listed. Any user can fix or list articles here.

Older cleanup: Category:Cleanup by month. Pages are archived by month, but are still in need of cleanup (or de-listing if they have already been cleaned up).

If you are here because you have found a page that needs attention, you are encouraged to be bold and edit the page yourself to fix the problem. If for some reason you don't have the expertise to fix the problems yourself, for example because you don't know enough about the relevant subject, you can request the attention of other editors as follows:

  1. Check "Resources for maintenance and collaboration" an inset text box on the right, to make sure there is not a more appropriate page on which to list the article.
  2. Add the most specific applicable tag to the article or its talk page (note that having a cleanup tag will be distracting for readers, so only add them to articles if there is a good reason). See Cleanup resources. For general problems, use {{cleanup-date|November 2005}}.
  3. Add your listing under today's date (UTC). Create a new section if yours is the first listing of the day.
  4. Explain what needs to be done in a brief but specific manner in the article's talk page. (Keep in mind not everyone who sees the cleanup tag on the article will see your central listing.)
  5. Sign your name, date and time by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ )
  6. Also remember that you can submit an article in need of cleanup to the Cleanup Taskforce (which is always looking for members).

For more detailed information about this page, see Wikipedia:Cleanup process.

Just to let everyone know, there are 9,433 articles tagged for cleanup as of 01:36, 13 October 2005 (UTC). This means that we are working on an astounding 1.2% of Wikipedia's articles!


November 8, 2005

  • Allograph (handwriting) - I did what I could. Could do with a few more edits I think. —Philip N. 00:59, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Magnus Lindberg - wikification.
  • Timo Alakotila - awkward prose.
  • Sam Houston Regional Library and Archives needs the works. Aecis praatpaal 00:02, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Half-Blood Prince (character) - Says nothing about the charater, is instead a spoiler of the book. - Mike Rosoft 01:13, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Stoney (musician) - Needs proper formatting (with headings), and needs to be written from an NPOV. --mdd4696 02:16, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Peter Kay is a random ragbag of fact and opinion. I have started but if anyone else wants to jump in I'd appreciate it - I don't know a huge amount about him. Paul Tracy|\talk 12:25, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Microsoft Visual SourceSafe - lots of run-on sentences, poor description of criticisms, doesn't explain that product is VERY heavily used by small dev teams, and is de facto standard, but is not considered enterprise-strength. Blogs section is random, links are not in the right place. Finally, needs to include mention of Visual Sourcesafe 2005, released yesterday, and (maybe) fixing all the criticisms. Also implies Team Server is the replacement for VSS, without mentioning VS 2005. Team Server is more expensive, aimed at larger projects. 14:21, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Battery electric factory flat truck needs wikification, attention and fact-checking ("I'm not sure of the proper name, but what the title refers to are..."). Aecis praatpaal 20:09, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
See also Greenbat by the same author. Content good: style a trifle folksy. Tearlach 20:59, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

November 7, 2005

Cleaned, stubbed. Tearlach 01:42, 7 November 2005 (UTC)
  • The Descent - bad grammar, needs general expansion -not just spoilers :D (needs to be stubbed?)--x1987x 02:24, 7 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Atoosa Rubenstein - awful writing, but has great possibilites if expanded and edited. She wasn't born Atoosa Rubenstein frinstance. Moriori 06:29, 7 November 2005 (UTC)
Intro sentence created: rest needs wikify and cleanup. Tearlach 01:25, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
about a book: Yeah, it's a manga. Tearlach 01:16, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

November 6, 2005

Furthermore, one originally posted by the guy who coined the term! Tearlach 23:02, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • The Left and Opposition to War - Numerous bold declarations of fact - "Most leftists hate war because they are Socialists." Obscure historical references. Pro-War/anti-Pacifist POV. --AStanhope 19:39, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Petar Dobrovic - Only in note form at the moment, needs to be tidied up and made into a proper article - (Erebus555 17:07, 6 November 2005 (UTC))
  • Yu She - needs wikifying, tidying up, info on what the article is about (person, place, object etc.) - (Erebus555 15:54, 6 November 2005 (UTC))
Done, but clicking through leads to many more in this area of history: Bao Zhong, Zu Mao, Pan Feng, etc. Tearlach 19:30, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Online Reality Games - original research, non-encyclopedic writing, not wikified - needs cleanup at least. MLA 10:45, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • The Precursors (race) is really not a good article. I don't even know where to start.--Seth Goldin 04:13, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Peak experiences needs some attention. Aecis praatpaal 11:34, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Cronyism - has the potential to be a very useful article, but at present the only examples of politicians hiring their mates (which happens near everywhere) refer to George W. Bush. Harro5 07:06, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Earl Krugel needs attention. aliceinlampyland 13:28, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Akbayan! Citizens' Action Party needs attention too, and I don't know where to begin. The discussion page seems to indicate that there is a copyright issue as well. aliceinlampyland 14:34, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Bikaner (princely state) - An excerpt from James Tod's "Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan" has been dumped into the article, but it seems to be in public domain. The article should be rewritten somehow. - Mike Rosoft 21:17, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
Yep: even though the Tod text is old enough to be out of copyright, Wikipedia:Don't include copies of primary sources applies. Tearlach 21:29, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

November 5, 2005

  • I hate to single out any contributors who mean well, but Jeffman52001 (talk • contribs)'s contributions leave something to be desired. This user, whose specialty is actors, makes the same exact errors in each contribution, as they are poorly formatted and misspelled (i.e., he always misspells "role" as "roll"), and they all read like its everything off of imdb (even though they are not copyvios). I tried to contact him through his talkpage, but he wouldn't respond. It would be nice if we could all chip in to clean up his contributions. ErikNY 22:44, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Jive (dialect) - obviously about a dialect, needs more info and possibly history and location etc. (Erebus555 22:07, 5 November 2005 (UTC))
  • Soils retrogression and degradation - poorly formatted, uses <b> and <br> extensively.
  • Mexican Federal Highway needs to be wikified. I know I created it, but I suck at wikifying, need some help. --Weirdperson11 13:40, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Al-Waqidi's credibility needs a lot of attention. Aecis praatpaal 10:53, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Alma mater is all over the place. In definite need of disambiguation, reorganization. jareha 06:29, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Paul Anibal Mesquita - this article looks as if it was machine transalted. It needs a complete rewrite. User:Zoe|(talk) 05:16, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
See Talk:Paul Anibal Mesquita: it was afd'd and deleted as vanity on the Portuguese Wikipedia. Tearlach 04:04, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

*Dick Brewer - A "useless substub" about an actor. - Mike Rosoft 01:46, 5 November 2005 (UTC)He is actually a surfer. . . I cleaned it all up good!--Meawoppl 16:41, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

November 4, 2005

  • Stavros Niarchos III - Needs to be rewritten in an NPOV and encylopedic way. Listed on AfD.
  • Priam's Treasure - Is almost to an encyclopedia as Schliemann was to Troy. The article seems to have some NPOV issues, and seems a bit like a tourist guide. Hiberniantears 14:10, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Actor analysis reads too much like OR. Aecis praatpaal 11:08, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Motorized bicycle is just a mess. One of the editors keeps adding more and more links. We really need another couple of pairs of eyes to come and help. Right now, the article has 30 links! Including about 15 at the bottom. It's just an eyesore. Any help would be appreciated. --Woohookitty(cat scratches) 12:49, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Jameson Parker need wikification and categorisation. Bluap 13:10, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Fixed. Aecis praatpaal 14:04, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Legion of sheep I'm not sure what needs doing, but it certainly needs it! Bluap 13:13, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Had a go at cleaning it up. Ray 18:29, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Wetware computer Style, etc Bluap 13:15, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Westlife - Where to start? Just read it (mainly the middle part) and you should see what I mean. - RedHotHeat 16:49, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

November 3, 2005

  • Crazy Frog was recently one of Wikipedia's top clickthrough articles from Google. Also, we are #2 for the term. However, the article could use some restructuring, as well as copyediting. It makes too much use of:
    • overly long words,
    • the passive tense,
    • and long sentences.
I am not sure where to mark the article as very important for cleanup, considering the number of hits it gets, but it definitely needs cleanup, as for many Web users, the Crazy Frog article is their first impression of Wikipedia. --Unforgettableid | Talk to me 09:29, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Qareen needs wikification and NPOV'ing: the current content takes the POV that qareen's (what's the proper plural?) exist, which is not up to Wikipedia to decide or say. Aecis praatpaal 00:13, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • The Fight - poorly organized and reads like a record company's promotional material. --Madchester 19:58, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
    • Actually, it is, and copyvio. Aecis praatpaal 00:13, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Type (botany) - fragmented.
  • Gray bichir - underwikified.
  • Ko Soo - Very poorly laid out. While some of the data is valid it reads like an article by someone who has a cruch on them rather than an encyclopaedia article. Ben W Bell 13:46, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Imperial Guard (Warhammer 40,000 army) - Very, very long and not very helpful. Goes into a lot of questionably-useful specifics, but doesn't explain how the army works compared to the other armies of the Warhammer 40,000 game. Also, the uninitiated to the game would be better served with a more compact and legible resource. --Agamemnon2 12:46, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Reionization - underwikified.
  • Metal-rich - awkward prose.
  • Water resources - recently expanded, but in need of considerable grammar and wording cleanup as well as fact checking. Vsmith 01:09, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Frederick James Camm (Brit. early & mid-cen. pop. sci. journalist): needs WP style. (Survives 2 Google copy-vio tries, but may also deserve further investigation.)Jerzyt
  • Theta wave - Stub. Needs to be wikified, and expanded for more encyclopedic information. - Mike Rosoft 19:20, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Ipu - I have moved this content from IPU, since it doesn't become there. It is about a Hawaiian musical instrument, but it needs a serious rewrite. - Mike Rosoft 22:09, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
  • King Fahd International Airport - Fragmented and has inconsistent flow, needs to be wikified --Weirdperson11 01:40, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

November 2, 2005

  • The Jim Rome Show - wiki is too detailed and list-oriented and seems to be more of a fansite than an encyclopedia listing. BEWARE! Regular editors are very defensive and will launch personal attacks (i.e. vandalism of your user page and public humiliation on other websites) if you try to edit it down. --Zpb52 06:36, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
Context: above user tried to AFD the article on grounds of being the originator and disliking how it had developed, then to blank most of it when that failed. Tearlach 18:41, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
Comment: That isn't why I nominated it for AFD at all, but thanks for assuming. I nominated it for AFD because I wanted to bring attention to the fact it was too long and unencyclopedic...not because I didn't like it, but because it didn't fit with the vision of Wikipedia. Next time, make sure you know about the subject on which you're talking before you claim to know it all. --Zpb52 01:14, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
I started this article, and now I'm ashamed I did. This has ballooned into something very unencyclopedic and overblown. Whatever the reason, an AFD is not the way to achieve cleanup. Any further attempts to blank the article or its talk page will be treated as vandalism. Tearlach 01:40, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
Comment: You took that out of context. I hate that I have to keep explaining my intentions to someone who thinks he knows it all. I wasn't trying to get it deleted because I was ashamed I started it. I was ashamed that I created a monster that became way too long and un-wiki-like. Stop assuming. Stop it. Stop. Stop. Stop. --Zpb52 02:08, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Throttled - At minimum, wikify. Seems to be strictly a promotional piece. I don't know anything about the tool. If it wasn't F/OSS, I'd put this up for VfD. --Karnesky 08:33, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
    • Wikified --Filipvr 11:20, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

November 1, 2005

  • Stewielocks and the Three Griffins - to be honest, I don't have a clue what this article is about. It is in present tense and then shifts to past. Maybe a book. Needs wikification, introduction and some clarification of what it is! - (Erebus555 20:03, 1 November 2005 (UTC))
This is a Family Guy episode that will be shown some time next year. The content is lifted from List of Family Guy episodes and it should probably be deleted - no other Family Guy episodes from that period have articles. I'm not sure if it there's a speedy criteria to cover it or not. --Cherry blossom tree 21:04, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Schepen - Needs wikification, grammar check and edit of some other things too. Intro of topic needed and points too. Sources needed from original editors. - (Erebus555 19:14, 1 November 2005 (UTC))
The problem with this article is that it's not about the title. The article is a biography (or rather, an OR rant) of William of Orange, but schepen is a position in local politics in Belgium, a position that once existed in the Netherlands as well but was abolished a long time ago. So this article needs more than just wikification and grammar check. I'll replace the current content with a translation of nl:schepen later tonight. Aecis 20:36, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
I've translated it, but it could do with review by a native English speaker. Aecis 23:52, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
I've added a link to alderman, which is what a schepen is. The rest looked ok to me. Also added the equivalent term in the Netherlands. Marshy 17:53, 4 November 2005 (UTC).
That looks good as a stub to me. Odd bloke 00:48, 2 November 2005 (UTC) 00:46, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Economic Entity - I don't know if this is a copyright violation but creater needs help. Serious clean up needed. Wikification, punctuation, grammar etc. - (Erebus555 19:01, 1 November 2005 (UTC))
  • Miguel de Cervantes - I actually put a CU tag on it a week or so ago. The article is too long and much of the content is unreadable; it is either a bad translation or simply the work of a florid writer. I've been attacking it in sections, but I'm not familiar with any of his works beyond Don Quixote, so I'm limited in how much I can do. | Keithlaw 17:45, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Mark J. Green - I recommend merging the timeline with the article text as well as providing links to his 2006 campaign website. --Blue387 16:41, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
    • The article also reads like a campaign flyer for Green. I'm putting a CU tag on the page. | Keithlaw 20:59, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Future Frequencies - wikification.
Speedy copyvio'd: it comes straight off Tearlach 16:49, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • English hip hop is confusing and does not place itself into context very well. Seems it would be a simple job to clarify this, but I am not very knowledgable on the subject of hip-hop in general. -- Foofy 08:32, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Franco Alfano needs to be wikified. Aecis 10:23, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • N'vyus just needs some general cleanup and verification, though I'm not sure how notable he is given that the only label producing his albums is his own. Goes with the previously listed Rampagge Records and Dame Dash Music Group. -- Foofy 14:51, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

October 31, 2005

  • Snoop Dogg and many related articles on albums and mixtapes: cleanup, wikification, formatting, NPOV problems. More than one person can handle in cleaning up. --FuriousFreddy 00:06, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • The Futures Academy - wikification.
A good deal of it comes verbatim from the Futures Academy website. The poster actually works for the place; I've requested confirmation of GFDL release. But it does seem very promotional. Tearlach 23:40, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
Needs watching, more like. Looks like an ongoing attempt to spam Wikipedia's futurology topics: see The World Futures Studies Federation Wiki Raid; this press release; and Wikipedia:Village pump (news)#The Great Wiki Raid of '05. Tearlach 13:08, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
Cleaned up: small additions needed, like photo. Tearlach 16:53, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Ian Bryson (Brit. ft-baller): -->nPoV. Soccer can be accessibile to non-experts & this art. should be, but what is "Captain of the North West Outfit" (& in almost any case, why u-case common noun "captain") & what is "Preston North End" (if a place, as "at" seems to imply, it can't be a member or fndr of sport league.Jerzyt Hopefully it makes more sense now.--Cherry blossom tree 20:25, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

October 30, 2005

Looks like copyvio, or at least a dump from promotional page. Tearlach 23:18, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Ballachulish is confusing as to which of the three villages of this name it's talking about.--JBellis 20:48, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Greek hip hop needs to be fixed up has a huge mess on top & bottom of page, unformatted url..
    • Reverted a PR paste, but still not much of a stub. --Foofy 13:20, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
    • Clean, cited, and stubbed. These "World Music" stubs could probably be rolled into a more complete article about hip hop in Europe.--Foofy 15:20, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • The Oak Ridge Boys has too many quotes, bad spelling and improper wording for an encyclopedia (i.e., "Both SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THIS ALBUM!!!") ErikNY 04:57, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • What Do You Believe About The Future? Not really sure what this is even about? --Foofy 05:42, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
    • It's about a short play - now cleaned up but sombody who has seen it performed should look over my work. Andreww 09:32, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Runescape has some confusing grammar, lacks adequate transitional words, and almost every end of a section is confusing JediMaster16 09:10, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • WTC Cosmo Tower - A substub about a building in Japan - Mike Rosoft 10:18, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
    • A legitimate landmark, added enough info to make it a valid stub. --Foofy 11:08, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Ko-do Ryu Karate - Promotional, not an encyclopedia article. - Mike Rosoft 10:39, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
    • I kinda just started over with specific facts, but it's a bit silly since all the "facts" can only be validated by that site. I figure the facts remaining still aren't notable enough, so probably stick it on AfD as vanity/not notable? --Foofy 11:40, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
    • I wasn't able to dig up enough third-party proof of notability, so I nominated it for deletion. --Foofy 13:00, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Dragana Mirkovic - Looks more like a newspaper/magazine article than like an encyclopedia article - possible copyvio. Unwikified. - Mike Rosoft 21:27, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
    • It appears to be a translation of the bio on her website. I guess that counts as copyvio? --Foofy 21:51, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
      • Tagged as copyvio, unless for some reason translations of copyrighted material don't count. :) --Foofy 00:51, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

October 29, 2005

  • Persian Art - non-encyclopedic (it's brochure-ish) and covered infinitely better in the seperate articles (to which it links; maybe it would be best to delete this section altogether and leave the external articles).
  • Eternit - underwikified.
  • Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare - There is little useful information, and the plot summary is waaaaaaaaaaaay too long - RedHotHeat 16:26, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Imanol - Badly (and incompletely) translated from Spanish. (And is he notable enough for Wikipedia?) - Mike Rosoft 17:49, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
    • Cleaned it up. A little sparse, but a fairly notable guy down in Mexico, lots of info on the net, but I don't speak Spanish. Reclassified as a stub. :) --Foofy 06:50, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • I couldn't get any of the images on Scottish monarchs' family tree, English monarchs family tree, and British monarchs' family tree to load. I am not sure if the problems is on my end or at Wikipedia. -Acjelen 19:41, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
    • They look fine to me (but take some time to load), so if was a problem it's gone. Andreww 21:16, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

October 28, 2005

Also the second section looks like POV antipollution activism; see also these contributions. Tearlach 10:46, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
Reverted it a little and did some minor cleaning, think it's decent stub now. --Foofy 12:03, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Symposium (Plato dialogue) - Riddled with errors, incomplete summary. Needs someone with clasics bone fides to work on. PotatoKnight 02:35, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Podnography — Was tempted to AfD this puppy, but I thought I'd try here first. Seems like a non-notable, somewhat contrived neologism. — RJH 23:04, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Bollocks - a lot of the content seems to be a load of... violet/riga (t) 22:08, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
    • I will sort this out, I think there is a lot of good explanatory information here for people who don't know the word, but it's all in the wrong order and looks like the author was just trying to be funny rather than informative. --KJV 15:28, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Hostile omish - spelling and spacing problems, etc.
  • Marc Schirmeister - found randomly. I am listing the article here because I am not experienced enough to judge if it should be deleted; however, for now, everything but (maybe) the first paragraph is useless. Should I remove all the crap and make a stub out of it or ask for deletion ? Schutz 13:07, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
    • The article is still pretty short, but at least it is now a reasonable stub instead of mostly non-sense. Schutz 17:12, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Lew Zealand - May have been link spam; I removed the link to but did not have time to deal with the broken external image link. --DavidConrad 06:59, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Aisake Ó hAilpín - Needs to be wikified. (The title may also need to be checked.) - Mike Rosoft 17:20, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
    • Wikified, but could be further improved by somebody from Cork and Melbourne. Andreww 08:58, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
  • MOO - Cleanup after mass-merge. 19:36, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Mauler RÖV-20 - "is a very powerful gun indeed" is not what I call an encyclopedia article. - Mike Rosoft 20:30, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
    • It's a made up "anti-aircraft laser cannon", I think I have it up to stub standard but a AfD or Merge should not be ruled out. Andreww 08:25, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Anoš - Needs to be wikified, also too much informal. - Mike Rosoft 20:38, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
Dubious: not only proving unverifiable, it also falls well below the criteria for notability of bands. Tearlach 12:38, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Opera (web browser) - Clear up redundancies, excessive links, and prepare for a future article split. --LBMixPro(Speak on it!) 19:54, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Seal_(musician) needs to be cleaned up for grammar, spelling, questionable POV and needs some fact checks. I 'll do it when I get the time but help yourself if you get there first. Done Feets 17:46, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

October 26, 2005

  • Defenestration - this article is relying a lot on the "Free On-line Dictionary of Computing" which has almost nothing to do with defenestration. Moreover, this fails to look at important historic examples of defenestration, such as the defenestration during the Thirty Years' War in Bohemia.
  • Ardour - apart from the fact that a user looking for Ardour might reasonably expect to find an article about Passion, parts of this read like an advert, with use of personal pronouns.... "Even so, we believe that in time, Ardour's editing capabilities will become the new standard for DAWs. Within the edit window, you can adjust everything about your session and its timeline layout.... Edit automation data in their own tracks.

  • Virial theorem I came to this from supernova. No doubt it makes sense to mathematicians - but a one-sentence explanation of what it is used for/context placement etc might be useful to the rest of us. The few other mathematical-symbol-heavy entries I have come across would benefit from a similar improvement. (They may be technicalities, but can usually be given a brief clarification suitable for those not involved. "This is used in describing how one liquid flows through another", "... how the various components of a supernova travel as it explodes." etc.) - What they said, but i'm pretty sure neither sample language is headed the right direction. Good task for someone who's already been wanting to read up on thermodynamics.
The whole thing needs integrating with Virial coefficient and Virial expansion, as there'a lot of overlap. Not my cup of tea. Tearlach 03:16, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

  • The good guys: The page mostly talks about a robbery. -- Snkcube 22:04, 8 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Neither the redirect Strong verb nor the poor Strong (grammatical term) currently provide any information (in the old sense) and mostly point the reader toward Germanic verb, which is a mix of jargon, specialist linguistics, and poor disambiguation. I'm not sure how such confusing and uninformative articles snuck into Wikipedia. -Acjelen 03:05, 6 October 2005 (UTC)
Having read Strong (grammatical term) I can't see what you're talking about. Seems like a clearly written short article to me, and I found information I was unaware. BTW, your last sentence seems rather harsh, to me. There are thousands of articles far more confusing than these. Eaglizard 03:08, 7 October 2005 (UTC)
  • We Love Katamari soundtrack - Poorly written and needs to be reorganized. -- Snkcube 03:40, 6 October 2005 (UTC)
  • The article Win is entirely about the accomplishment in baseball pitching, a rather narrow focus. -Acjelen 04:05, 6 October 2005 (UTC)
Update: I've created Win (baseball), and Chick Bowen has developed Win into a disambiguation page. It remains now to disambiguate these baseball articles that currently point to Win. Tearlach 09:43, 7 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Free World Dialup Poorly formated and maybe an advertisement Put to AfD for comment as seems impossible to redo as not an advertisement. ➨ REDVERS 20:12, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
  • French people This article is fuzzy (to say the less) about ethnicity and nationailty. Ericd 09:28, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Neuro-linguistic Programming(Temp) - This page needs a cleanup in preparation for merging back into main article. 02:34, 4 October 2005 (UTC) Original link gone, suggesting the article now clean or AfD. ➨ REDVERS 19:45, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
  • It Dies Today - Poorly maintained, outdated, and juvenile page about a very legitimate (Headlined 2nd stage with Ozzfest, 40,000 records sold of debut album) rock band. --CastAStone 01:39, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Veritas (political party) - recently content additions has been added in the wrong part of the article. --Neo 09:48, 4 October 2005 (UTC) Looks to have been well cleaned up yesterday by an anon and Ground Zero. ➨ REDVERS 19:42, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Nightsisters - no context... could be fancruft for all I know. Giving this 30 days to see if anyone will clean it up and add context before I AfD it.--Isotope23 17:36, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

  • Flag of Nazi Germany - Consists mostly of an excessively long and probably unnecessary quote from Mein Kampf. Alr 01:08, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
I have shortend the quote but left this on cleanup for now - any better? Andreww 08:57, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
It's clean. Andreww 21:16, 5 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Manon Lescaut - Serious neutral POV problems with this article. Wording seems to be entirely from the source quoted. will381796 00:38, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Cwen - The factual accuracy of this article seems dubious (confusing Ostrobothnia and Kainuu, if nothing else), the article uses the name "Cwen" throughout although it links to an existing article called "Kvenland" etc. I'll try to do what I can, but my knowledge on this subject is very limited. Aarnepolkusin 16:18, 3 October 2005 (UTC)
  • William Wilbanks: probably not an AfD but rather reflection neglect of his notability from hostile PoV; cop-ed.Jerzyt
  • Hyundai FB: I can't even edit this article because of some major grammar problems. Also, for some odd reason, the article's author keeps trying to remove the cleanup tag. I don't understand why, but just keep that in mind. --ApolloBoy 22:57, 3 October 2005 (UTC) Clean. Will note such in talk page now. ●REDVERS HELLOEMAILDOINGS 15:48, 30 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Edict of Nantes: Needs to be Wiki-fied, can't find the code to tag it as such. Still a bit new at massive editing. --(Why does it show my IP, shouldn't it just say, "Anonymous"?) 17:25, 3 October 2005Clean, see the talk page. Andreww 21:13, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

  • XAMPP - Basically a copy-paste from the products' homepage. Not quite sure if that's illegal (it might be GFDL), but it's just a lot of advertising. Husky 20:25, 2 October 2005 (UTC) copyvio - now listed as such Andreww 08:48, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Fodor's - Notable publisher, but the article reads like an advertisement.Alr 20:06, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
    • Rewrote bits of it, should be clean enough now. Foofy 10:11, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Edgy Lee - This needs copyediting and wikification. Michael Slone 04:46, 2 October 2005 (UTC) Removed tag, seems reasonable now - Matt 4-Nov-05
  • Daniel O'Donnell (Irish singer) - This main biography needs general cleaning and wikification. It reads like it was written by someone who doesn't know a lot about their subject. DWaterson 12:07, 2 October 2005 (UTC) Seems reasonably OK now - Matt 2-Nov-2005.

  • Gandhi Information Center - Copyvivo, apparently with permission (Talk:Gandhi Information Center, but it needed to be wikified. -Permission is not execution of the GFDL, so if as described above this would be Copyvio. As talk page shows, it is apparently not simply permission, but verified placement under GFDL, and thus apparently not copyvio. Jerzyt All cleaned up (rewritten). Foofy 17:45, 26 October 2005 (UTC)
