2011

December

  • List of UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors - There are multiple instances of vandalism/unsourced material on this page, much of which has been there for months (particularly in the United States section, along with others). The article certainly needs to be wikified and clarified. I am requesting rollbacks on multiple edits since at least March 2011 that are either blatant vandalism or unreferenced contribution. I do not want to delete edits seeing as most are easily revertable or controversial. Thanks in advance. RoyalMate1 18:32, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Shaw's play Arms and the Man. I found a lot of garbage, which I deleted. However that left the "plot" section incomplete. Also poorly reference. If you can repair bad edits, do have a look. Lugnad (talk) 01:53, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
 – The article has been cleaned up. It would still benefit from copy editing. Northamerica1000(talk) 12:17, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
 – Article currently has 13 inline citations. Northamerica1000(talk) 14:26, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Added a lead. WylieCoyote (talk) 11:41, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
 – Still unreferenced, but the article's layout has been cleaned up. Northamerica1000(talk) 12:21, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

October

  • Bannari Amman Group – Several cleanup matters, including the article being primarily in list format, possible copy/paste copyvio problems, and needing the addition of internal links. Northamerica1000(talk) 05:24, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
  • Academic degree – Contains extensive information that's informative, but lacking references. "Netherlands" section tagged for "wikification". Northamerica1000(talk) 05:12, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
 – The article has been improved as of this post, still needs some copy editing for cohesion, more inline citations. Northamerica1000(talk) 15:50, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Paravakkalvery sloppy-written article, has multiple issues, including: it is unwikified, uncategorized, no sources... Alex discussion 11:33, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
 – Article has been wikified and has categories Northamerica1000(talk) 06:50, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
 – Article currently has two sources, and another editor has cleaned up the grammar. The article could use more sources. Northamerica1000(talk) 14:19, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Julio Castillo Narváez – notable by the murder event, needs apply of wiki formatting and some other issues presents as well. Alex discussion 21:02, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
  • Brian Camelio - Started cleaning up the article. So far I focused on the first sentence and on finding reliable sources for that sentence. Beyond that, there is plenty of information for which no source is provided. --Edcolins (talk) 18:58, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
  • Neely Traditional Academy - Very little information. Needs to either be expanded or merged. Larsona 14:35, 5 October 2011 (UTC) Send me a message at my discussion page
 – Note: Neely Traditional Academy has been merged and redirected to Gilbert Public Schools. Northamerica1000(talk) 08:56, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

September

Corrected a few grammar issues --SRaemiA talk 00:48, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

August

  • Air Jordan - This is a really problematic article that receives constant unsourced edits from IPs and new editors, as well as frequent vandalism. It's been tagged for cleanup for years now. I'm tired of keeping it on my watchlist so I'm dumping the link here hoping someone wants to adopt it. -- œ 14:33, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Floridablanca, Pampanga - This article is very messy and includes un-sourced material, vandalism, no categories, and more. It would be good if other editors can edit this article to make it more cleaner. -- Luke Talk 00:53, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
    Ew. You're right that article sure was smelly.. Looks like some IP editor was doing a copypaste job.. I reverted back to an earlier semi-stable version but the article still needs a lot of work. -- œ 11:27, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
 – Article currently has one inline citation; needs more. It appears to be in better shape at this time. Northamerica1000(talk) 15:51, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Dolores Park - The Geography and Territories section seems to be full of "inside jokes." There are no citations in this section.
 – The article no longer has a "Geography and Territories" section. However, it would benefit from more sources and inline citations. Northamerica1000(talk) 19:29, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Frankford Middle School - contains unnecessary details such as a description of the locations of the hallways. Contains unimportant graduates of the school. I have no knowledge of this school however. --Vzomg (talk) 21:40, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
 – The article has been cleaned up. Northamerica1000(talk) 19:44, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Manhunt (military) -- This is so bad, it makes me blush. The issues are simply too vast in this structure-less, unfocused, botched article. --Cerejota (talk) 15:13, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
 – I've done some minor layout cleanup to the article as of this post. Northamerica1000(talk) 19:23, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

July

 – Now merged into Disney Junior (international)--jcnJohn Chen (Talk-Contib.) RA 12:21, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Super Why! This article is written like an advertisement, and some of episodes need to be sure if they are real.--jcnJohn Chen (Talk-Contib.) RA 14:33, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
 – Cleaned up layout. The article needs more sources and is overly-detailed; would benefit from copy editing to make it more concise. Northamerica1000(talk) 19:50, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

May

  • Green-water navy – This article is wrong on so many levels. To start with, the list of green-water navies by alphabetical order has about 5 navies in it, the list probably shouldn't be there at all, as it would list every single navy in the world, bar four. Also globalsecurity.org doesn't seem like a very reliable source. On another angle, the style is rather rubbish as well. Took a look. Eeesh. Most of what would help clear up issue is already said in the Blue Water Navy article. So, not sure how to approach this.... Cynthisa (talk) 15:23, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
 – The article has been cleaned up and expanded. Northamerica1000(talk) 14:28, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

April

  • Ruby character#HTML Ruby markup This section is at least a year out of date, and probably several. Ruby markup is included as part of the HTML5 specification, which most major browsers now support (for instance, the Ruby markup on the page renders fine in Google Chrome), but the article claims that most major browsers do not support Ruby markup. --STUART (talk) 20:17, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
 – Cleaned up since the time of the above post. Northamerica1000(talk) 14:31, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
 – The article has been cleaned up. Northamerica1000(talk) 12:35, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

March

  • Debits and credits This article was previously tagged (April 2009) though has not received any attention from an expert on clean-up since then. I have been trying my best to make it more appropriate though advice and help would be appreciated. The content in this article is considered to be of elevated importance for clean-up especially since the topic is directly related to a financial science Sweetmat (talk) 09:04, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Mazatlán is an important city in Mexico and should have a high quality article written about it. The current article has a lot of repetition and very little sourcing. Basically, this article is unacceptable for the city it is about. I may recommend completely overhauling it and starting over. -- Gopats92talk 00:54, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
 – I've cleaned up the article's layout, reorganized it and have added sections. It would still benefit from much more work, particularly significant copy editing, more sources and inline citations. Northamerica1000(talk) 20:48, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

February

  • Kelvin McKenzie This article desperately needs a major clean-up. I have removed large paragrapghs of inaccuarate POV nonsense. But there is still plenty of POV, unsourced or OR material. I would appreciate a thorough clean-up. Thank You. Christian1985 (talk) 14:43, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Indian Accounting Standards This article lacks a clear structure and desperately needs a major clean-up. I would appreciate a thorough clean-up.Karthikndr (talk) 14:21, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
 – I've cleaned up the article's layout, fixed bare urls and reordered some of the information. The article still needs work. Northamerica1000(talk) 20:14, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

January

  • Adolphe Thiers Much of the article has been copied directly from the 19th century editions of the Encyclopedia Britannica, and is extremely biased. Jackiespeel (talk) 17:37, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
 – Cleaned up the article's layout. It does appear that some of the text is copy/pasted from Encyclopædia Britannica (11th ed.). Per the article:
 This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainChisholm, Hugh, ed. (1911). "Thiers, Louis Adolphe". Encyclopædia Britannica (11th ed.). Cambridge University Press. 
However, since the information is in the public domain (see: Wikipedia:Public domain), it's not technically a copyright violation (see: Wikipedia:Copyright violations). Northamerica1000(talk) 20:04, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
