To-do list[edit]

  • Ilaiyaraaja: An A-class article that is impeccably referenced, but for the leap to take place to FA classification, the reference section templating needs to be improved; that is, it should be done the way it is done for other Features Articles. Could someone familiar with the latest Wikipedia referencing template do this please? I think this is an easy article to elevate to FA-status once the referencing is tidied up!

  • Sivaji Ganesan: An article with tremendous scope for improvement (as there is a wealth of credible information floating around on the Internet — and journals and books too). AppleJuggler (talk) 03:18, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Kamal Haasan: Another neglected Wiki article on a major figure in modern Tamil art and culture. In the discussion page of this article, easy-to-follow guidelines are provided on how to improve this article. AppleJuggler (talk) 05:34, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Naidu: This needs help of someone with expertise in the subject to provide verifiability, and from others to provide verifiable in-line references. I have completed copyediting but it still needs help. --Belinrahs (talk) 14:46, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Please improve the article on Surya Sivakumar. He's an actor who is going to represent Tamil Nadu.
