Wikipedia:WikiProject Fix common mistakes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The goal of this project is to reduce the number of common mistakes in the article space of Wikipedia.

The idea is that we check if the entries still contain those errors, and fix the articles if necessary.

Intro

So as not to duplicate work, here is a list of occurrences checked so far. When you have fixed all the instances of an error found in Wikipedia, please sign and date. In general, please repeat the search that has not been performed for the longest time.

  • Partial work is ok, just note your username and the date worked on. Any entries not marked  Done still need work!
  • The link under "Latest Database Dump" contains a listing of occurrences generated from a database dump. The date is what dump was used to generate the list. The list can be checked manually or loaded into AWB.
  • The "How Long Ago" column was calculated July 20. Click Purge to recalculate it now.

If the lists below have been completed, more work to be done can be found at the following links.

Instructions

Any help is appreciated. Contributing is easy:

  1. Pick one of the errors from the table below.
  2. Work through the pages in the Latest Database Dump List, fixing any errors you find.
  3. Edit the list and remove any articles you have fixed.
  4. Update the date you checked in the other columns as (MM), (DD), (YYYY).
  5. If you finished the whole list, mark it  Done
  6. (Optional) - Return to step 1 and try another list!

If you have an idea about another pattern to search for, please add it to the relevant section of the discussion page of this project.
