Comment – The book has received some notable reviews: [1], [2] (PDF), [3]. According to WP:NBOOK that probably bestows notability, but the WP article should be about the book's influence and should not repeat the book itself. Also, the article could possibly be nominated for deletion because there is no article about the author. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 15:23, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
 Done ...at least in terms of cleaning up he weaknesses noted by User:Bbarmadillo back in April. I alerted the Books Project about the article and some folks there cut down the self-referencing summaries substantially. The article still has lingering notability issues though. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 17:21, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Austin Irving – American contemporary artist. She is notable (LA Times, Slate, WIRED mentions her works) but the article simply has too much information esp. at the Bibliography section. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:05, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
I also notified AustinIrving that they should not be editing this article and should properly declare COI. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:12, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
☒N Deleted This page has been deleted (not by me) due to it being "Unambiguous advertising or promotion". --LichWizard talk 14:44, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
LichWizard Looks like it has raised from ashes :) -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 19:26, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
Bbarmadillo So it has :P --LichWizard talk 19:49, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
Bbarmadillo Well, I guess it's been deleted again... --LichWizard talk 14:53, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Melodorum siamense - This is a tree species native to Thailand, but it seems whoever wrote this article wasn't a native English speaker; there's several examples of syntax/grammatical errors throughout the body of the article. -- Aanaranjo10 (talk) 18:16, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
 Done I cleaned up the grammar and such, but the article doesn't cite any sources, so I have no idea if it's accurate or not. --LichWizard talk 21:31, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
 Done Cleaned up the duplicated references. --LichWizard talk 18:19, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
 Done Fixed duplicated and bare URLs --LichWizard talk 11:34, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Coretta Scott King – the entire article is disorganized, and uses many instances of unidiomatic American English. Sections are all right, but many anecdotes are sort strung together or pop up randomly. The article as a whole reads like a high school essay. Matuko) 22:33, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
I think it's a beautiful article! Nina07011960 (talk)
 Done - Tags for "copy edit" and "personal opinion/essay" were placed on 10 April by Matuko (who also commented above). Several editors tackled typos and grammar errors and in my judgment the problem is resolved so I removed that tag. Meanwhile, Matuko (if you read this), please give some examples of how the article looked too much "like a high school essay". Respectfully and professionally, I must disagree because almost all claims are supported by reliable sources and a few minor oversights already have the standard "citation needed" tag. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 19:12, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. I stand by my issues with the article, and have replied to your comment on my talk page with examples. I don't have a dog in this hunt other than providing readers with a factual and readable article on Mrs. King (as we all want), and if I am alone in this, I'm perfectly fine with that. I used phraseology (i.e. "high school essay") from Wikipedia's guidelines regarding encyclopedic tone and article cleanup and certainly not just to offend. --Matuko (Talk) 23:49, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Ashley Avis – American screenwriter and director. The article is written like advertising, needs cleanup to remove puffery. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 15:37, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
 Done, fixed by other editors

 Done Finished the cleanup. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:58, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Aaron Sim – requires clean up to remove any promotional tone and kindly read all the resources for fact checking thanks :) Shenalyn2018 (talk) 02:47, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
UPD: Nominated for the deletion. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 11:46, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
☒N Deleted per discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Gerald Murray (Talent manager). North America1000 20:02, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done the text is OK. There are still too many links at "External links" that should be turned into text references. I did part of the job. A bit more effort is needed. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:15, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
 Done Finished the cleanup. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:54, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Fixed: Has been addressed by other users, and I performed some follow-up minor edits. North America1000 19:56, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Mila Jam – May need some edits here and there and I am not quite sure what exactly! I know the page is listed as an orphan page, but there are many different articles and publications about this artist. NicoLarsson
  • The article is presently in a satisfactory state, and it is also not orphaned at this time. North America1000 02:30, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Note that Draft:John Warner Smith has already been rejected for article status five times due to lack of notability and shortage of reliable sources. Another review now is likely to lead to the same result. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 22:21, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
  • The article is now in main namespace, and does not appear to require cleanup at this time. North America1000 02:34, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Acme Monaco – External links inline the article. Reads like a advert and in general the style of this article is confusing, including many IP edits. --Steinfeld-feld (talk) 19:59, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

Fixed by Derek R Bullamore. North America1000 04:27, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Vanjari – Poorly written, no references. Only reference used is from an unreliable website.
  • Nb. The article was redirected (by another user) to Banjara, the latter of which does not appear to need improvements. North America1000 03:00, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Roger Smart – Two named references had the same refname and this threw an error. I renamed the both refnames but it's still unclear which reference belongs to which reference call. --Steinfeld-feld (talk) 21:10, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
 Done

  • Doe Maar – The article has several cleanup templates within it, is tagged for reorganization, and also presently has no references. North America1000 19:49, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
  •  Done - Xcuref1endx was probably right about someone close to the organization writing the article. It had way too many unsourced details about the group's inner workings, stuff probably remembered fondly by the group but boring and irrelevant to everyone else. I eliminated just about all that stuff, reduced the article to a factual history, and improved the citations. There are a couple of fairly minor factual statements that I was unable to verify so I left "citation needed" alerts. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 21:03, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Aston Martin – Have started badly needed cleanup, lots of outdated, and sometimes wrong information. Article will need a general refurbishment after the worst has been fixed. All help appreciated. BsBsBs (talk) 08:02, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Twelve Swords of Power – Multiple issues. At least 6 aging maintenance tags on this one. Not sure what the best approach would be for this one but above all else it definitely needs a trim. -- œ 05:59, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

November

  • Nalanda Buddhist Institute, Bhutan – Several issues. Most sections lack any citation and sources are not clear. Three images used in the article are marked with a © (copyright character). (Are these photos copyright?) Chris Fynn (talk) 13:33, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Book of Mormon chronology – Significant format and style issues. Also fairly obscure content found in context in other pages. Finally, concerned about overly positive POV vs. neutrality.

  • The article has received many copy edits since this post. May not require cleanup at this time. North America1000 01:48, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Recess (break) – Clean up needed (see notice at top: page needs to be globalized), also references need clean up. Tinton5 (talk) 02:00, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I cleaned up the references, no globalization tag presently exists on the article, the article is essentially cleaned-up at this time, and requests for major copy edits are better suited for WP:GOCER. North America1000 01:00, 4 October 2017 (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
yellow tickY Partly done: Looks like one had been fixed, but Traffic light still needs improvements. Tinton5 (talk) 20:21, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
I took a look at this article and I don't think that there's much use in cleaning it up until there is some kind of consensus on which source to use for the list (post office vs USGS, for example) and how broadly to define place names (include counties?).

  • List of haunted locations, especially Haunted locations in the US – Has numerous amounts of speculative information from various unreliable paranormal websites. Also prone to drive-by additions, need a massive cleanup and removal of such content based on unreliable sources; watchlisting will also help. -Ugog Nizdast (talk) 12:04, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Lowell Milken – The cleanup banner has been on this page since April 2013 regarding additional editors to qualify for a neutral point of view. There are also references that require proper sourcing. Perhaps some other editors can attend to the references on this page? Sarahkeen (talk) 21:16, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Silva Method – Grammar needs fixing. Article is more about José Silva than the Silva Method. Content about the method itself is mostly not encyclopaedic (e.g. list of countries). The Navbox template adds little value. Stelio (talk) 09:10, 17 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)
  • Struck "Footnote number 22 needs to be replaced with a more reliable source" above. Appears to have been addressed. North America1000 14:13, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
