Hit List[edit]

This is a self-maintained informal scratchpad list of edit "targets", articles I feel need work and that I would be interested & able to improve.

Comment (via my talk page) on any item in this list is encouraged. Anyone who feels they can offer suggestions or guidance, is interested in collaborating, is already working on something listed here and wishes to "mark their territory" (I loathe the thought of unnecessary duplicate work), or has any other input is requested to leave me a note.

  • I've proposed merging the one-sentence stub Leapster2 into Leapster. Possibly the least controversial merge proposal of all time, but still... please feel free to talk amongst yourselves.
  • Lighting control console reads like an ETC sales brochure, with all of those precisely-identified board photos included. Those need to be at least genericized — nobody needs to know that the unit being used to illustrate a "preset board" is specifically an ETC Acclaim.
  • Skynet (Terminator) needs some real-world POV fixup, particularly in the sections on the 3rd & 4th films. WP:PLOT, WP:PLOTSUM, and the MOS (fiction) section on Plot summaries should all be helpful.
  • List of Essential Mix episodes could use some formatting cleanup. (Some notes not in the Notes column, Template:nowrap needed on some items in Notes, links to the general BBC EM page in the Mixes column for off weeks, etc.) I'm also more than a little worried that all those Mixes links shouldn't be there, but that requires some policy research.
  • Mohammed Benaziza needs some love... the IP user who's been updating it clearly means well, but he doesn't appear to be a native English speaker, and it looks like that page is the only wiki editing he's done so he's not well-versed in wikimarkup and the conventions of article structure here.
  • The lower half of DVD is just nauseating, especially for what should be, given the topic, a Featured Article. (Hopefully it won't be, not in that form!) Needs layoutluv, badly!
  • Cotton Mather has been damaged by some recent editing, as some of the referenced citations were lost. I was able to find this old revision where they seem to be intact. Reverting would be too severe; better to find & re-insert the appropriate citations, figure out where the damage came from, and gently refer the editor/s in question to the appropriate Help articles. — Huh, what do you know? There's A bot for that, which has taken care of the problem.
  • Paradise Garage is an absolute mess, and an embarrassment to Wikipedia. None of that tangential Essential Mix rambling belongs anywhere in the article at all! Least of all the introduction, which somehow takes up 90% of the entire article.User:82.44.100.73 whacked the Essential Mix noise (Yay!); the article's still too top-heavy in the introduction, but it's tolerable now.
