  • Oxford English Dictionary - Many citations appear broken (e.g. [18]:xx). These may be referring to a specific page of the cited resource, and should be moved to into the citation as per WP:CITE. Also, any of the revisions of the OED mentioned in the text contain question marks (e.g. ?th impression).

  • Insufficient justification - Needs slight adjustment in the tone of the article. It was written as if it was a school assignment. AbhigyaDahal (talk) 08:55, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Language interoperability - about programming language interoperability. An important concept with a low quality article. At least the grammar needs to be fixed, but it would be good to rewrite the entire thing. The section about VMs seems unrelated to me. Akeosnhaoe (talk) 06:14, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

  • Drako Motors - Manufacturer of electric sports cars. Reads entirely as an advertisement, and I feel that a lot of this article is impressive-sounding statistics that don't really mean anything, but I don't know anything about cars. Needs copyediting, and citations need re-formatting to have further information. Waxworker (talk) 08:40, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Original research and fancruft issues, I've already removed sections dedicated to recurring jokes and a table of the highest scoring games, but the 'sections/features' section still needs trimming.

  • Dennis the Menace (U.S. comics) - An American comic strip about a mischievous boy named Dennis, not to be confused with a similar British strip of the same name. Fancruft and tone issues, as well as reliance on primary sources - a good chunk of the references on the article are the comic itself or unsuitable refs such as IMDB or the Grand Comics Database, which I'm not sure of the reliability of. I've already removed some particuilarly inappropriate refs such as links to search results on Bing. Waxworker (talk) 16:57, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Schrödinger's cat in popular culture - Examples of the thought experiment Schrödinger's cat in pop culture.

  • Johnson_&_Johnson#Coronavirus_(COVID-19) - This section just sloppy. Tense errors like thinking September 2020's in the future. Lots of small paragraphs that were added when they were fresh. Poor transitions. In short, a lot of additions as the news came out, but it really needs to be thought through, molded into sensible paragraphs—stuff like that. Maybe it can just be stripped down since there's a full article about this? Thmazing (talk) 07:08, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

  • USC Thornton School of Music – page needs an actual lede and body. KidAdSPEAK 20:58, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
Comment I have reorganized the article, but the missing lead was the minor problem there. The article has very long lists (I won't mention the sources). Can someone take a look? I can correct those, but currently a bit confused with Notable faculty section. Should the red links be removed? Too many of those. Less Unless ( talk) 13:51, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
  Comment: The lists are too long and don't provide notability for individuals being in the list. I would support trimming all the red links as that would leave the ones that have pages and are likely more notable. The list issue is old and hasn't been addressed since it was noted in 2012. I did some trimming of red links. ThinkHat ( talk) 17:07, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

  • Build the Earth - Deletion? If not it is full of promotional and citation issues. AmericanAir88(talk) 21:30, 12 March 2021 (UTC)v
      Comment: AmericanAir88: Hey, I was one of the first few people to substantially work on this article (and it was the first article I worked on), so it's a "nice" coincidence that this is the first thing I see when I open Cleanup!
    This is from back when I had no idea how Wikipedia worked, and I just wanted to write. It's in a pretty not NPOV (and I see how it could seem promotional, but that wasn't my intention at all), and it contains a lot of original research, because I'm part of the project.
    However, I don't think that it should be deleted. I know that lack of notability isn't the only reason for deletion of articles, but there are a lot of reliable sources that have talked about BTE ( Independent, ScreenRant, EuroGamer, Vice, ...), and I think there's a lot we could improve based on these (though this would result in an article with a much smaller scope, of course).
    I'm going to try and improve it (even though I'm not that interested in writing about BTE anymore, but I won't leave it stranded), and everyone else is very welcome to do so, too. This would include removing all of my original research. Sorry for creating this abomination :) 🐈 cAtte_ · talk · contributions · 17:38, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
    Response The article is highly promotional and relies on primary sources. It needs to be fixed. The "Build team" section needs to be removed as it is a clear violation of Wikipedia principles and is not notable. Thank you for your help. AmericanAir88 (talk) 23:45, 13 March 2021 (UTC)


  • Manuel Fal Conde - This article has multiple issues, it has a non-academic writing style, the chronology of this article is hard to follow, there are several grammatical or spelling errors. I think this article was translated from Spanish by a non-native speaker of English, as several definite articles are missing. Xwedodah (talk) 03:52, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done checked the "External links" section and removed some sources. It is strange that the Spanish version of the article is 10 times shorter than the English one. -- Bbarmadillo ( talk) 16:30, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Thecho - Some sections are like lists. They need to be converted into the prose. Further, the article is unreferenced and citations should be added. –Kammilltalk⟩ 08:51, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Marcelo Salas - this is an article about a very important footballer, but it is poorly written, and it seems like many parts were translated from Spanish literally. The intro seems to be too long and has too much information, some of it of dubious importance.--Celtic1985 (talk) 14:59, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

  • List of Tom and Jerry characters - List of characters in the cartoon Tom and Jerry. Massive amount of uncited fancruft and outright false information, such as giving names to unnamed characters and listing brief visual gags as a character in of themselves, as well as odd non-sequitur statements such as "There is some debate as to whether this is the genuine Clint Clobber as the original Clint would never be an outright animal abuser; he was just a put-upon grouch". A lot of the false information given seems to also be on the Tom & Jerry fandom wiki. Waxworker (talk) 07:42, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Note: Not all of it may be false information. There are nicknames to almost all the characters in the Tom and Jerry universe, so it's possible someone heard about these nicknames and put them in the page. So I would keep the normally unnamed characters in, but remove the breif visual gag characters as you said. Phantasm99 (talk) 18:50, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Joanne Wilson - US venture investor. It is a properly stated WP:COI contribution. Here is an opinion from DGG: "I can't help thinking that the article is considerably excessive in view of the accomplishments. Perhaps it could be fixed by not including mere listings as awards, (and converting the table into a list--because of accessability problems tables as deprecated unless necessary), i moving those items in the bibliography that discuss her into references in the usual format, and possible decreasing the rather extreme number of references, too many of which are barely disguised PR, and from sources which are mainly devoted to publishing press releases" (expressed here). -- --Bbarmadillo (talk) 18:51, 21 December 2020 (UTC)

  • History of Dubai - Opening paragraph about UAE instead. Poor use of citations.AussieWikiDan (talk) 13:07, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
  • BT Sport#Programming - there are needlessly long lists of presenters on here. It's just lines and lines of names, like a register! Please either remove most names, create a new article listing the presenters or put them into a table. Thanks! Mrmariomaster (talk) 20:37, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Zhou Shen - Please fix grammar and prose in this article if necessary. Some sentences do not have citations, so maybe add "citations needed" if necessary. Article may be praising the living person at times, instead of maintaining neutral point of view. I've done some edits and will continue to do so but would like some help. Thanks! GhostHuang'sFan (talk) 07:28, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Cherkizovo – Thourough clean-up required – for details see there.--Hildeoc (talk) 08:25, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Shooting and crying - poorly written, needs a grammatical and syntactical cleanup. Sk96sk (talk) 13:34, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done fixed footnotes, minor grammar changes Seyasoya ( talk) 6:25, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done - Minor layout/format fixes, fixed error in quote, fixed references with citation errors. — WILDSTAR talk 16:52, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Amrou Al-Kadhi, this bio needs some copy-editing clean-up. Convert bare references. And maybe move Filmography and tv listings into a Filmography section. Gleeanon409 (talk) 01:02, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done Fixed bare references. Rievebug ( talk) 19:12, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
 Done - copy edits and filmography section done by many editors. Aranya  (talk) 03:46, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Note: At this time, the article has no lists of sources or external links, having only inline citations at this time (diff). North America1000 01:47, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
Not done Northamerica1000, note that the "list of sources" mentioned was in fact a heap of inline citations dumped right before the References section (see here). I've unstruck, as there is still something left of this heap, and there is still a lot of uncited material in the article. PJvanMill)talk( 16:44, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
@Abbasquadir: FYI. -- Emir of Wikipedia ( talk) 16:59, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Oklahoma City Boulevard - A couple of statements have missing sources and a section needs to be up-to-date. AlphaBeta135 (talk) 14:06, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Note: Struck part of the nomination above, because this project does not accept requests for additional sources. North America1000 02:08, 13 August 2020 (UTC)


  • Cec Purves - A named reference is invoked but not defined. It may be available in the Revision history of earlier article versions. North America1000 15:46, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
 Done the issue has been addressed. Less Unless ( talk) 18:23, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done by Bbarmadillo. -- Bbarmadillo ( talk) 18:14, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
 Done looks fine now. Less Unless ( talk) 20:02, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
 Done Looks fine now, corrected throughout the year by multiple editors. Less Unless ( talk) 19:54, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Autonomous building - lack of inline refs and doesn’t seem to flow right (to me, at least). It just feels off. Firestarforever (talk) 02:24, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Aleksander Vinter discography - the way this page looks like is all messed up and disorganized. Incomplete tables and a lack of quotations for song names and organization are very prevalent here. Lacon432 (talk) 14:34, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Women in Turkmenistan - Tone and style need overhauling. Article is occasionally opinionated, lacking in structure and prose is rather informal. KaterFindus (talk) 22:33, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done I mostly rewrote the article due to major bias issues and a lot of unsourced material. I'll probably continue working on it for a bit longer. Would appreciate feedback! Thanks, Ovinus ( talk) 20:25, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done references with bare URLs, minor spelling error, additional contributions by PJvanMill, Northamerica1000, and others. — WILDSTAR talk 04:09, 24 July 2020 (UTC)
  • C. H. Gonda - general clean up needed, spacing, grammar, citation style fixes. Tinton5 (talk) 04:21, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done I think references require subscriptions so unable to access them to change them in line with Wiki citing Anuthys ( talk) 18:04, 18 May 2021 (UTC)


 Done Less Unless ( talk) 19:17, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Gummibär - A German virtual singer CGI gummy bear, primarily known for I'm a Gummy Bear (The Gummy Bear Song). Excessive fancruft and tone and grammar issues, the episode descriptions for the cartoon based on the character in particular stike me as being written by a young fan, and they require serious rewriting. Waxworker (talk) 15:33, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done Cleaned up part of the web series section, which has the most issues. Rosalina2427 (talk to me) 18:53, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Grading systems by country - this article is extremely long, poorly sourced, has numerous grammatical errors, and uses inconsistent formatting from section to section. Mysteryman blue 07:09, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done Corrected grammar, made formatting more consistent (and added tables), removed irrelevant details. Ashpie007 ( talk) 19:36, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Creatures (1990 video game) - A 1990 platforming game with cartoon-y graphics contrasted by scenes of torture. Formatting & tone issues, plot is described in an in-universe style. Waxworker (talk) 18:17, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
Not done As the article cites no sources, and I don't seem to be able to find anything better, I've nominated it for deletion. PJvanMill ( talk) 22:20, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Deletion discussion is going to be a keep. Should have looked better. PJvanMill ( talk) 14:15, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Jason Altmire - Page involved in edit war based upon WP:RS and WP:MOS edits and clean up notice was issued. In doing the cleanup, the cleanup editor should also review the material in dispute, which is legitimate and RS and has been removed/restored en bloc multiple times today. EdwardsCluaser (talk) 18:11, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
yellow tick Y Partly done - References cleaned-up. -- WILDSTAR talk 20:38, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
 Done From what I can tell, the NPOV and COI issues got sorted out and the article is presently in good condition. PJvanMill)talk( 22:23, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Chiller (video game) - A controversial 1986 light gun arcade game wherein the player takes the role of a torturer; the game's notible for its gore. Possible original research, and the article needs more citations; i've already removed some citations from unprofessional sources such as blogs. Waxworker (talk) 02:21, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Bolo (1987 video game) - A 1987 multiplayer tank strategy game, and an early game with networking capabilities. Uncited fancruft, and the articles only sources are two primary sources from the creator of the Macintosh port of the game. Waxworker (talk) 01:23, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
    yellow tick Y Partly done I've found a secondary source, which is in "Further reading" for now. I've removed most of the fancruft. It still needs a lot more citations, but many claims in the article could be backed up adequately by a primary source. PJvanMill ( talk) 19:12, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
     Done as the remaining concerns (that is, sourcing) are not really cleanup work. PJvanMill)talk( 22:13, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
  • List of warez groups - A list of warez groups, which publish pirated/cracked content. This article has a serious issue: the site 'defacto2' is used extensively throughout the article, but the site is now usurped and links to straight-up malware that MalwareBytes identifies as a trojan. Many of the links are permanent dead links as well. Waxworker (talk) 01:26, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Not done per recent changes the project doesn't deal with referencing. Less Unless ( talk) 20:46, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
Less Unless I've unstruck this one - per the discussion, this project is not for adding sources and references, but problems with existing sources are within scope. Kind regards from PJvanMill)talk( 21:07, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
