To Do[edit]

This is a place where our requested articles, as well as articles which have been tagged as stubs, as needing a cleanup or needing wikification are located. Future to-do ideas are located in /Todo ideas. Please also visit the Malta noticeboard at WP:MALTA. This is where WP:PROD (proposed deletion) and other announcements should go.

Requested articles[edit]


Wikification Needed[edit]

  1. Games of the Small States of Europe This can be expanded quite largely by adding the categories "Future Members" "Future Competition" adding to the "sporting Disciplines" and the chart for number of times a microstate has became victorious in a specific sport or one it overall. Teh Ferret 22:16, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
  2. History of Malta This article presents several unbalanced, POV statements. We have a unique problem with regards to Maltese history, due mainly to the small size of its population, and the fact that there are two main political parties with very different opinions regarding the root causes of key historical events, their significance for Malta, and their impact on the country generally. Where the conflict or disagreement itself, on any key issue, is significant enough, I recommend that we present a plurality of positions. However, we need to work harder at ensuring that any opinions expressed are properly backed up by reference to a reputable source. lamato(talk) 22:53, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
  3. Qala,_Malta This article is written in prose style and in the first person in several places. louism Aug. 2012


The Project (In order of priority)[edit]

  • Help Construct the project page.
  • Improve the {{WikiProject Malta}} template so it includes a rating system and importance system cats are ready to go, but I (Anonymous Dissident) cant seem to work out how to make that happen.
    • This seems to be working. 「ѕʀʟ·」 23:08, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Go through the Malta Category and tag the talk pages of as many Malta-related articles as you can.
  • 'Get the Malta project out there' so to speak.


See Picture Requests for Malta at Commons

  • Several Local Council articles lack Pictures.
  • Every President and Prime-Minister article should have a Photo, but some of these still lack one

Remember Wikimedia Commons has a good collection of pictures you can use, you can start by looking here


Please see our page on assessment for more details.
