To Do[edit]

This is a place where our requested articles, as well as articles which have been tagged as stubs, as needing a cleanup or needing wikification are located. Future to-do ideas are located in /Todo ideas. Please also visit the Malta noticeboard at WP:MALTA. This is where WP:PROD (proposed deletion) and other announcements should go.

Requested articles[edit]

Guarena Palace, a fortified building
Palazzo Marnisi, fortified (1650) building in Marsaxlokk

Translations from other Wikipedias[edit]

Cleanup/Wikification Needed[edit]

  1. Games of the Small States of Europe This can be expanded quite largely by adding the categories "Future Members" "Future Competition" adding to the "sporting Disciplines" and the chart for number of times a microstate has became victorious in a specific sport or one it overall. Teh Ferret 22:16, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
  2. History of Malta This article presents several unbalanced, POV statements. We have a unique problem with regards to Maltese history, due mainly to the small size of its population, and the fact that there are two main political parties with very different opinions regarding the root causes of key historical events, their significance for Malta, and their impact on the country generally. Where the conflict or disagreement itself, on any key issue, is significant enough, I recommend that we present a plurality of positions. However, we need to work harder at ensuring that any opinions expressed are properly backed up by reference to a reputable source. lamato(talk) 22:53, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
  3. Qala, Malta This article is written in prose style and in the first person in several places. louism Aug. 2012
  4. Qrendi The "Geography" and "Main sights" sections need to be rewritten. Xwejnusgozo (talk) 14:27, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
  5. Three Cities The entire article needs to be rewritten, and references must be added. Xwejnusgozo (talk) 14:27, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
  6. List of churches in Malta - should use English names of places (this is English Wikipedia), add column of date of construction, delete column of area and feast and see also and notes, add rest wikilinks to missing articles. Should reorder columns to: name (of church, with wikilink) | Location (English name of place and perchance address) | Status | Year (of construction) | Photo. Subtropical-man talk
    09:11, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  7. Add info about Cave diving in Malta in Cave_diving#Cave_diving_venues. Subtropical-man talk
    20:02, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
  8. Royal Malta Golf Club is probably copyvio, must to be re-edit. Subtropical-man talk
    22:30, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
