  • Dated post; many sources were added to the article after this post. North America1000 19:31, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Yahoo! Labs – Tagged as needing reorganization. It is also sourced entirely with primary sources. North America1000 13:42, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Struck the above. Unlikely to be resolved by this project, which is based more upon general cleanup. North America1000 18:13, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Colin McCahon - This article about a New Zealand modern artist is a general mess, which I have been slowly trying to fix. Any assistance with fixing references and adding new sources would be appreciated. --Clawsyclaw (talk) 03:10, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Does not appear to need cleanup at this time. North America1000 18:20, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Formatting is fine at this time, and not sure how the wording needs fixing up, so striking this dated entry at this time. North America1000 18:24, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Investigative Project on Terrorism - needs major clean up provided it's salvageable. Contains inaccurate information cited from original sources, riddled with NOR and SYNTH violations, undue weighting, and irrelevant content. Failed to meet notability requirements for organizations. AtsmeConsult 00:50, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Was redirected to Steven Emerson on 22 November 2015‎, and that article has received many copy edits since this time. North America1000 18:26, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Per WP:BAREURLS, "Note that some citation styles, such as the MLA style, use full bibliographic citation that happen to display the text of the URL in addition to proper identifying information, like the author, date, and title of the publication.

  • Article has received significant copy edits after this post. North America1000 18:29, 23 September 2017 (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)
  • Does not appear to require cleanup at this time. North America1000 19:22, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Does not appear to require cleanup at this time. North America1000 19:25, 23 September 2017 (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)
  • Struck dated entry above. The article is not tagged for the above matters at this time, and has received some copy edits after the post here. North America1000 18:44, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
tried making it read better, but by post world war 2 section everything is very incoherent and unrelated. giving up X( Ramthecowy (talk) 12:45, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Does not appear to require cleanup at this time. North America1000 19:56, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
Fixed up. Tinton5 (talk) 20:09, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
Unstruck. The article still has several bare urls. North America1000 22:41, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
My mistake, must have missed a few. Tinton5 (talk) 01:19, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done: Page now has no bare links. Still more sources and some clean up needed. Tinton5 (talk) 01:29, 17 May 2015 (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)
      • The article has been expanded after the above post. Also, the AfD discussion was closed with a keep result. North America1000 18:33, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Does not appear to require cleanup at this time. North America1000 19:05, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Has 119 refs at this time, and does not appear to need cleanup now. North America1000 18:59, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Had a go at it. I think that someone else may have already gone through and attempted Wikification. Chri$topher 12:04, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
  • K'Nex pieces - Has 3 sections that are significantly overly detailed and would benefit from reduction into an encyclopedic style. Needs reliable sources. Northamerica1000(talk) 01:22, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Hôtel Le Bristol Paris - Primarily in list format, the characteristics section in particular would benefit from conversion from a list into a paragraph. More sources would also be an improvement. Northamerica1000(talk) 23:24, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done: I cleaned up the refs, but I don't read Thai, so they may not be perfect. Copyedited quite a bit, but the article still needs work. Leschnei (talk) 00:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Dingo - the body is great and I can fix any little errors, but I have no idea how to tackle a monster like the lead. öBrambleberry of RiverClan 16:10, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
  • The lead appears to be in order at this time. North America1000 18:49, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
I did the best I could to edit thisJimnChina (talk) 13:17, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Does not require cleanup at this time. North America1000 18:47, 23 September 2017 (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)
  • Dated post, and the article is not tagged as such as this time. North America1000 18:45, 23 September 2017 (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)
  • Does not appear to require cleanup at this time. A full rewrite is outside of the purview of this project. North America1000 18:34, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Unclear nomination, and the articles do not have a promotional tone. North America1000 20:39, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Roulette needs to be checked for mathematical accuracy: there are numerous errors.
  • This project is typically more focused upon general cleanup, rather than research and applied mathematics. North America1000 16:12, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
I suggest editors ignore this contentious and pointy request. The nominator has made these changes and been reverted. Instead they might sort out the nominator's many new stubs, which continue to use bare url references, despite him been requested not to do this many times. Johnbod (talk) 10:57, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Withdraw my dated nominations above. North America1000 14:51, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
What is worse, it seems to be a WP:COPYVIO from here:

Succinctly, the term shipping agent refers to the relationship between the principal, in this case is the shipping company conveying the goods and its representative whereby the principal will impliedly or expressly authorize the agent to work under his control and on his behalf...

Zezen (talk) 14:18, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Update: A WP:G12 copyvio speedy deletion nomination was declined. It appears that the source in question copied content from the Wikipedia article. See diff for more information. North America1000 13:41, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Added more internal links. North America1000 15:03, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • The article was reverted (by another user) to a stable version lacking the above problems.

North America1000 20:40, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

  • The article is doing much better now. It has a name change and images. AmericanAir88 (talk) 22:45, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Janice Langbehn, clean up needed with some footnotes, layout, and external links are bare URLs. Tinton5 (talk) 04:49, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I fixed the external links, but the other problems still need to be addressed.
  • Update: I formatted the remaining footnotes that needed this done, and the layout seems to be in order at this time. North America1000 14:27, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Does not appear to require cleanup at this time. North America1000 14:23, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Striking this at this time. The article has received some copy editing to address concerns after this was posted here (e.g. diff, diff). The article does not appear to have cleanup issues at this time. North America1000 14:19, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Black Canary - Article has multiple issues of "describes a work or element of fiction in a primarily in-universe style," "need to be rewritten entirely to comply with Wikipedia's quality standards," and "too long and excessively detailed." NeoBatfreak (talk) 07:41, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
  • The article has received many copy edits since this post occurred, and may not require cleanup at this time. North America1000 15:00, 25 September 2017 (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)
  • Does not appear to need cleanup at this time. Significant copy editing requests are better placed at WP:GOCER, rather than here. North America1000 18:36, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • The above-stated concerns do not appear to exist in the article at this time. North America1000 14:36, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • 4 O'Clock Club - this article is quite a mess. The characters are there but they need more information that actually tells you more about what they are about. It's difficult because it's not like there are a large amount of people out there who watch this particular programme and who can actually clean the article up. It just looks a lot like fan editing and it needs a clean up as it doesn't clearly dictate what happens in the series, exactly. Emirates123 (talk) 20:16, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Generation Z - The article presents a large number of facts and studies without providing an appropriate synthesis of the information. Narssarssuaq (talk) 18:55, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Avast! Avast ye! That article has got multiple issues, and in particular, the possible copying copyvios. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 08:48, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Does not appear to require cleanup at this time. Earwig's Copyvio Detector results are not showing any problems at this time. North America1000 14:29, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • The article has received many copy edits since this post occurred, and may not require cleanup at this time. North America1000 14:40, 25 September 2017 (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)
  • Dated post; the article does not appear to contain the concerns listed above at this time. North America1000 13:39, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • List of Tamagotchi releases – Needs a complete rewrite. Article written as if an advertisement, information is not well organized, and some points are difficult to understand if not already knowledgeable of the topic. Timeraner (talk) 06:53, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Dated post, and this request is more suited for WP:GOCER, rather than this project. North America1000 19:24, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • More sources were added after this post occurred, and the page does not appear to need cleanup at this time. North America1000 15:07, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Dated post, and this request is more suited for WP:GOCER, rather than this project. North America1000 19:25, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
I did a bunch of copyediting but I couldn't make any progress on the Polish references. I tagged it for 'no footnotes' and 'cleanup-translation'. I'm not sure what outpolishing is (maybe I did it?), so I didn't strike it out. Leschnei (talk) 18:35, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Sierra Madre Ground Warbler - I created the article because one on this bird had not been created yet. If someone could help with adding more information and material that would be great. Andise1 (talk) 06:58, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
  • B. F. Skinner - Weird formatting, possible inaccuracy, and a lot of section moving needed. Also might consider a semi-protect for a *lot* of vandalism. Kingsocarso (talk) 22:16, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
  • The article has received many copy edits since this post occurred, and may not require cleanup at this time. North America1000 15:09, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Isma'il ibn Jafar - Needs additional references and general page cleanup. Sherenk1 (talk) 09:23, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Peninsular War - I'm trying to cleanup the many unreferenced paragraphs by some time but there a plenty of work to do. Some help before a GA nomination would be great. Reiftyr (talk) 07:32, 22 June 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)
  • 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)
  • The article has received significant expansion after the above post occurred. North America1000 14:56, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • yellow tickY Partly done: Article no longer has bare urls. North America1000 20:59, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  •  Done: Added a Gallery AmericanAir88 (talk) 22:32, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
  • The cleanup tag was for the article having empty sections. This request for article expansion is more suited for WP:GOCER. North America1000 14:43, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Charlie Hebdo shooting, Extreme citation clutter and unrelated sources, Too many links to other articles, and too many duplicate links to other articles. Gamebuster19901 (talk) 02:14, 18 January 2015‎ (UTC)
  • Dated post. The article has received many copy edits since this post, and the article may not require cleanup at this time. Also, there is no {{overlinked}} template on the article. North America1000 14:26, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Janet Lane-Claypon – This is an article that deserves to be in much better shape. This page had no references and inappropriate tone. I added references quickly but I can't understand a thing related to cancer and science research bc my knowledge in this area is too limited. Can someone take a look? МандичкаYO 😜 18:47, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
  • The tone issues appear to have been addressed (diff). The article is tagged as needing attention from an expert in Medicine, which is outside of the purview of this project. North America1000 14:54, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Bug Juice - Page formatting is a hodge podge of confusion. Strange attempts to table, with no regard for wiki formatting. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:55, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
  • The article appears to be in order at this time. North America1000 15:01, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Noopur Tiwari - Bare urls and requires reorganization to comply with layout guidelines. Ayub407talk 07:24, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
  • The above issues are not present in the article at this time. North America1000 15:08, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • I fixed reference issues, and does not appear to need cleanup at this time. North America1000 15:21, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Jan Norberger - Can someone please review this for me so that the Clean-up / Neutral POV tag might be removed. I have received some feedback from other users and removed citations that linked to Mr Norberger's LinkedIn page, replacing them with verifiable neutral citations. I have also added additional verifiable citations for paragraphs that didn't have any prior to the tag appearing. Any assistance would be appreciated. MS Joondalup (talk) 02:50, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
  • USS Essex (CV-9) - Flow of the service history of the article needs some work. Also the dates are not very clear as they are mostly missing the years. Reb1981 (talk) 04:02, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
  • I changed the cleanup template to the {{copy edit}} template in the article. This request comes across as more suited for WP:GOCER. North America1000 15:25, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
I removed the intricate detail and original research tags, after removing several sections entirely that were completely unsupported. (I left two sections marked with BLP sources-needed tags, because I felt the info in those sections was not contentious.) I replaced the single source that had gone dead-link with what seems to be the new url of the same article, and found a second source, albeit one of limited usefulness. Presumably I shouldn't strike out the text above here, since the article still has issues... —GrammarFascist (talk) 07:47, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done: I have performed more minor cleanup, but the article still has issues. North America1000 16:26, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
  • At this time, the remaining issues are likely better addressed by editors at WP:GOCER. North America1000 15:29, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • The layout appears to be in order at this time, and it's unclear what wording fixes the article would require at this time. North America1000 14:59, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  •  Done Bare Urls and Dead Links Fixed AmericanAir88 (talk) 19:44, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Jacuzzi - It has tons of Bare Urls, Needs Expansion, and overall Copy Edit. AmericanAir88 (talk) 02:32, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Fixed the bare urls and cleaned up a bit via copy editing. Expansion requests are more suited for WP:GOCER, rather than this project. North America1000 20:48, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • I fixed the centered text and cleaned up some of the sections. DrewBino talk (afc0703) 14:12, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Loylap - Citations style and lack of inline citations. Would also benefit from copy editing due to it written in promotional tone. Ayub407talk 06:56, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
