We should have an article on every pyramid and every nome in Ancient Egypt. I'm sure the rest of us can think of other articles we should have.
To start with, most of the general history articles badly need attention. And I'm told that at least some of the dynasty articles need work. Any other candidates?
Standardize the Chronology.
A boring task, but the benefit of doing it is that you can set the dates !(e.g., why say Khufu lived 2589-2566? As long as you keep the length of his reign correct, or cite a respected source, you can date it 2590-2567 or 2585-2563)
Anyone? I consider this probably the most unimportant of tasks on Wikipedia, but if you believe it needs to be done . . .
This is a project I'd like to take on some day, & could be applied to more of Wikipedia than just Ancient Egypt. Take one of the standard authorities of history or culture -- Herotodus, the Elder Pliny, the writings of Breasted or Kenneth Kitchen, & see if you can't smoothly merge quotations or information into relevant articles. Probably a good exercise for someone who owns one of those impressive texts, yet can't get access to a research library.

The Greek characters as they appear in this article are illegible to me running mozilla on linux, but I have no trouble reading ΑΒΓΔ, etc., with mozilla (although netscape can't handle them). -- Mike Hardy
They don't look right to me, either, using IE 6. -- Zoe
They look definitely wrong. But I don't know greek enough to tell what they should be. FvdP
They are scanos: an OCR program's attempts to try to recognise squiggles in the Greek alphabet as squiggles and punctuation in the Latin alphabet. There are lots of these in the 1911 entries. The Anome
Are there OCR programs that are literate in Greek? -- Mike Hardy
Yes there are OCR programs with Greek language support. I think most of them have greek support but perhaps it should be specified within the installation program.
