Category talk:Wikipedia articles needing factual verification

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Due to recent events, I believe every article needs to be verified soon after its creation. Wikipedia's reputation depends on it. Other sites copy whole articles from us verbatim, and when our information is incorrect, things that aren't true get taken for the truth. All new articles and all articles that haven't been through here need to go through here. —User:ACupOfCoffee@ 00:14, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Isn't this list of articles a bit too big?[edit]

Are some of the articles formerly in need of factual verification, and if so, shouldn't they be removed from the list? Kirbytime 05:33, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure how you can tell if the tag needs to be removed. Certainly if you are expanding something and you add links that confirm all yourpoints, you can remove the tag... I don' know the difference between this and needing refs. Anyway, I'm proposing that this category be sorted by date to start things moving. If you wan to comment on this proposal, please talk at Wikipedia talk:Maintenance--Rayc 21:34, 10 April 2006 (UTC)


Shouldn't this be just "Articles needing factual verification" as all the articles listed or that could be listed are Wikipedia articles - unless we start adding Wikinews articles or indexing Citizendium articles :) --Trödel 20:18, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

I think there is a plan for self-refernce categories to begin with "Wikipedia". Rich Farmbrough, 19:33 10 January 2007 (GMT).

Split by month[edit]

We should perhaps do this, the same way as the other major cleanup categories. Comments? Rich Farmbrough, 19:35 10 January 2007 (GMT).

And now that this has been done, perhaps we should remove the focus letter, which only leads to the recent additions. Kevin 23:13, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
