  • Hi Karinpower – the {{POV}} template would work, whereby you can place it in the section of the article where the sources are disputed (using {{POVsection|date=April 2015}}, or atop the article using {{POV|date=April 2015}}), and then provide your rationale on the article's talk page. North America1000 05:37, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! I have done this. I haven't heard any feedback whatsoever; strange because previous talk shows a lot of contention on this page.--Karinpower (talk) 23:15, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Fixed: - A520 | Talk me away!/sign it! 12:08, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
I've Fixed the bare URLs, but it's written like an advertisement, so I've tagged it with {{advert}}. A520 | Talk me away!/sign it! 15:02, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Fixed:, except for ref 16, which the Wayback Machine refused to cough up and provides no clue as to what it is through its URL. Due to this, I've slapped a {{dead link}} on it. A520 | Talk me away!/sign it! 15:13, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

What do you mean by incorrectly edited? Something besides the sentence as paragraph style? It looks like someone edited the section to remove the marketing style of writing and it seems OK to me now. Koijmonop (talk) 01:00, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Grace Min In need of a thorough general clean-up; numerous links direct to pages which do not exist or are incorrectly linked. Also needs more references. --Dalek194 (talk) 20:03, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Fixed: Majorly cleaned this one up. Still needs sources but the sections make a lot more sense now. Removed all the redlinks and improved some of the wikilinks. Any Tennis buffs wanting to add sources/content should do so! Kobuu (talk) 14:34, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

August

Fixed: Cleaned up this section. Didn't look at the rest of the article though. Kobuu (talk) 18:40, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Charlie Walsh The whole article is rubbish. No references for Walsh being a technician before, no or bad references at all, critics were thrown out. Very bad. Please return to [1] --Nicola54 (talk) 06:49, 9 August 2014 (UTC)}}

Fixed: Cleaned up! Feel free to add images! Kobuu (talk) 14:27, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • John_Bowle_(writer) needs attention to COI issue raised there. "--->COI ALERT: I (deisenbe) am the author of the article just cited. I believe an exception to the policy of not citing your own work should be made. I don't know how to request this, so I'm leaving it here for someone more knowledgeable to deal with."
Fixed: Not seeing the COI alert on this article. Cleaned up the references but the article looks fine to me. Kobuu (talk) 14:36, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Fixed: Major cleanup. Sections, filmography, sources organized, backlinked from the films, wikilinked, infobox added. Could do with some pictures and more content but otherwise, looking pretty good now! Kobuu (talk) 15:24, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

  • List of Shameless (U.S. TV series) characters I saw some glaring errors in some of the descriptions of the characters of this TV series. I corrected some of them, but then saw that many of the entries contain detailed descriptions of plot activity (especially from Season 4), rather than just the characters' nature or biographical information. It seems to me that, even though the activity of the story lines impacts the characters' personalities, the inclusion of what amounts to partial plot synopses may be irrelevant, and furthermore will contain spoilers. I believe this is not the place for plot outlines and such. I soon realized I was looking at a much larger task than originally conceived, and thought it best to bring this matter to public attention, hoping those with more experience in this area will know how to improve the page satisfactorily. I hope this is the right place to post this sort of notice. Thank you. Journeybear
  • Arfa Karim The references in the article seem to be broken Best regards -- Neozoon 00:11, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Update The references in this article have been fixed.   ArcAngel   (talk) ) 15:09, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Fair City - This article needs a major ref cleanup. Other than that, it seems fine to me. Tails3333 (talk) 18:01, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Update - I cleaned up the article a bit. Tails3333 (talk) 18:59, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Sensory overload - Long lists, little content. In addition, it looks like it could use some rearrangement, although I can't can't personally explain what exactly is off about it, simply that it looks off. --Pichu0102 (talk) 13:14, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
    • On second thought, it seems more like a candidate for AfD. --Pichu0102 (talk) 13:18, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
  • RC Lens - Club's history is very poorly written and needs grammar check. I've done slight clean up but more needs to be done.--NovaSkola (talk) 12:12, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
Update - I cleaned the history section up a bit grammatically, but it still could do with some sort of rewrite. Moony22 (talk) 10:44, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Privacy-invasive software - Unfortunately I am not in a position to edit this article at this point because it has many problems. Several places adopt an editorial and non-encyclopedic tone, and at one point even shifts point of view to the first person plural, "We believe...". Do all editors believe that way? I am not sure I do. — Falerin<talk>,<contrib> 02:11, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

April

  • The Wonder Years - LOTS of unsourced material. The lede needs rewriting with preferably no sourcing. Needs to adhere more to MOS. More discussion of music and impact needed. Final episode/epilogue section needs to be chopped down considerably. More pictures would be nice. Basically, the whole article needs help! Twyfan714 (talk) 21:23, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Jesse Mugambi – the lead needs to be rewritten, the article doesn't have enough links, and the page may be too long. Toccata quarta (talk) 15:25, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
  • IOS upgrade refusal - needs to be written in neutral point of view. Information isn't factual. References are messy. - Georgij Michaliutin (talk) 14:07, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Waterdown District High School – needs to be reorganised. Toccata quarta (talk) 16:38, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

March

  • Applied Bunch of Special Means - Article is likely about a notable topic but is incomprehensible as written. It was almost certainly created by someone whose first language is not English. Even the title may be a poor translation. -Ad Orientem (talk) 20:10, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Fixed: Redirected to Special Purpose Police Unit (Azerbaijan). That article has more relevant information and sources. Kobuu (talk) 15:10, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Update: I started work on this. Removed a couple issue tags, cleaned up the lead, added a source. Needs a little more work though. Kobuu (talk) 20:00, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

February

Fixed: As of this note, this article looks pretty clean. There are some sources needed for quotes but a solid article. Kobuu (talk) 19:00, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done General clean up, but the Plot section is undecipherable unless you know the movie. Added copyedit template - likely to just be a closk reset, so watch this space... --Haruth (talk) 15:11, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Nissan Motor Company - I did my maiden cleanup (so to speak) at this page. Of course, it took much longer than I thought, will probably never be finished, and led to more work. BsBsBs (talk) 06:34, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • List of FIFA Club World Cup broadcasters - the majority of the citations are referring to the UEFA Champions League instead. As a result, the majority of the information in the table is incorrect. Major cleanup needed. Digifiend (talk) 00:20, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Impossible to tell, as all UEFA links are dead. Removed deadlinks & cleanup template, added unreferenced tag. + AfD --Haruth (talk) 09:52, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. General cleanup for readbility. Bunch of additional tags for specialists to address. --Haruth (talk) 15:11, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Shit - Has a cleanup tag placed in June 2011, with no specific cleanup rationale provided. Immediate cleanup matters from my assessment here involve copy editing and adding sources. Northamerica1000(talk) 09:08, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Harsh edit, removing original research and details not relevant to the article title. --Haruth (talk) 23:55, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Update: The article was deleted per the delete result at the article's AfD discussion. Northamerica1000(talk) 08:44, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
I've performed some preliminary cleanup. The article would certainly benefit from improved sourcing and further copy editing. Northamerica1000(talk) 08:53, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
I did some minor copy editing. The article still needs more sources. Bold Edits (talk) 19:37, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Merlin Entertainments - I just fixed a few glaring syntax errors (like two headings not having the same number of equals signs (=) on both sides, and a few wiki-links with a similar problem of not having the same number of brackets on both sides), but I'm sure there are many more. Most of these errors are in the "Operations" section". Of course, that section also has no citations at all... --V2Blast (talk) 00:22, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Shuffled out in the intervening years. --Haruth (talk) 00:28, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Ram Revilla, already a poorly written article, has been bombarded with massive amounts of unsourced detail that is probably a violation of WP:BLP. I recommend the page be stripped of all the huge cruft, with the needed information carefully reinserted. Beerest355 Talk 17:15, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

  • New Jersey Turnpike - needs additional sources and formatting improvements. In addition, consistency with naming conventions such as the word "exit" (like in exit 5), the "E" should be lowercase in the body and lead. Footnote number 22 needs to be replaced with a more reliable source. Tinton5 (talk) 21:37, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Garden State Parkway - needs extra sources, formatting improvements, and consistency with naming conventions throughout. Tinton5 (talk) 21:37, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Somerset House - much of the prose is essay-like, and in need of verifiable sources.Trillig (talk) 14:34, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
 – I've performed page cleanup and some copy editing; the article would still benefit from more copy editing. Northamerica1000(talk) 14:54, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
I've cleaned up grammar and syntax and removed the copy edit tag. I don't know how to show a strike-through of this project here.Coaster92 (talk) 01:52, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Chach Nama and related articles - article and related ones regarding a chronicle of 7th-century India. Though listed as low-importance, there are abundant resources regarding this period of history and the articles could use better sourcing, restructuring, and content additions. dci | TALK 16:07, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Indian Institute of Planning and Management - cleanup tagged since December 2009. NPOv issues:favors IIPM in almost all topics. Advert templates. Controversy section and dubious citations. Primary sources. Tall claims.--Nizil (talk) 21:26, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Law of value - A subject of extreme WP:OWN as shown by the talk page. One of the largest articles on Wikipedia and is likely filled with original research. It needs to be condensed, made understandable and neutral.--Neoconfederate (talk) 00:25, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
