yellow tickY Partly done I tackled most of the bare URLs; some are in Russian that I'm not comfortable tackling as I can't read the language. Gave the article a good cleanup for tone and readability but it would definitely benefit from a good going-over by a Russian language reader (and ideally a Slovenian reader too).

  • Demonstrative - The first and second sections are basically the same thing, and both obviously written by a long chain of editors adding examples sequentially in inconsistent fashions. The two sections and examples therein need to be consolidated and made consistent. Justin Kunimune (talk) 02:00, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Ethnocentrism — Garbled syntax throughout is the main concern; see talk page. — ob C. alias ALAROB 16:51, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Latin Kings (gang) - Used to be much more organized but is now a confusing mess. Kausticgirl (talk) 07:10, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
@ Kausticgirl:If you can identify a date in the past when the article was not "a confusing mess", it should be fairly easy for us to update it to a state resembling what it was back then. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 00:50, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

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)
  • Demographics of Jamaica – Needs its info checked to see if it matches the references. Thinker78 (talk) 20:42, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Ugnius Kiguolis - Lithuanian businessman. I did some basic cleanup. Much more needed. Considered AfD, but found a Lithuanian Wikipedia article, so he might be notable. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:26, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done - Added some more categories to the page Lucie Person (talk) 03:36, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done (still) - Added an infobox, and more cleanup done Lucie Person (talk) 20:28, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done - User:AmericanAir88 fixed the references. The article still needs help with neutrality though. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 19:15, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Fu Ching Yen - Chinese public health doctor. Lead section too long and massive references duplication. I'd suggest also to add "expand from Chineese" template. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 21:21, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done Cleaned up reference duplication. --LichWizard talk 19:56, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Nina Gamble Kennedy - please advise as to exactly what text should be deleted for the article to be "fixed." Nina07011960 (talk) DOB removed Fixed Nina07011960 (talk)
  • Criticism of Protestantism - the article is totally biased and appears to be written by only one editor (user Marax) for the sole purpose of blaming Protestantism for... well, everything (liberalism, secularism, homosexuality, decline of Western civilization, and so on). Also requires cleanup, is simply too long and lacks of any reliable source. However the worst part of it is the massive "Catholic-thumper" attack against Protestant Reformation and Protestantism as a whole, filled with hateful speech and revilement. --GenoV84 (talk) 15:16, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Carlos Garaicoa - Cuban contemporary artist. Lead section too long and the article itself as well. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:20, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done Cut the lead artcle down to what I think is a reasonable size as well as cleaned it up a bit. --LichWizard talk 20:33, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done Cleaned up reference duplication. --LichWizard talk 18:52, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Diala Makki - Middle East "media personality". Looks like a non-notable person to me, but I might be wrong and thus don't nominate for the deletion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bbarmadillo (talkcontribs) 20:18, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Ohotaq Mikkigak - Inuit artist, needs cleanup at bibliography and references sections. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:07, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Sullivan, Mary Ann. “Gates of Paradise, Florence Baptistry.” Images of the Gates of Paradise by Ghiberti, Florence Baptistry, Florence,Italy. Digital Imaging Project: Art Historical Images of European and North American Architecture and Sculpture from Classical Greek to Post-Modern. Scanned from Slides Taken on Site by Mary Ann Sullivan, Bluffton College.,

yellow tickY Partly done Tried to give the article a more neutral stance and did some general cleanup, but it could still use some better citation. --LichWizard talk 21:08, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Tourism in the Philippines - advert of an article with many sections copied and pasted from other Wikipedia articles. However the worst part of it is the massive image use. 96 images as of time of posting. Continually readded and edited by IP addresses, and I'm not entirely convinced there may not be some elements of advertising in here as well. Bloated and over the top. Canterbury Tail talk 13:12, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Jesse Brown (journalist) - requires clean up, particularly on the long, rambling section on Jian Ghomeshi who was later acquitted of all charges despite Brown's continued insistence of his guilt. There is also disagreement on whether he is a journalist and/or if that is the best description of his current role as a talk show host.
  • Planck length -- Needs more citations, a bigger history section, more focus on conventional physics, a better treatment of currently unaccepted theories, and attention from an expert. I've already done some cleanup myself, but needs considerably more. cnte (talk) 07:46, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Cultural achievements of pre-colonial Philippines – Needs additional citations, may contain original research, relies largely on a single unreliable source, may not have a neutral point of view. Thinker78 (talk) 00:43, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Christina Battle - Canadian video artist. Most works and exhibitions unreferenced. I am not an expert in video art, so just tagged the relevant project and also adding here. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 18:51, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Wheatgrass#Nutritional_content -- Someone's put a line at the bottom reading "PLEASE NOTE: Some of the nutritional content linked to, in the paragraph above [13] , and mentioned, in table 1 [4] , seems dubious and/or do not appear to match a more accessible source at the USDA website.[14]."
  • List of countries by firearm-related death rate – Needs stats corrected because many don't match the references. I have done some myself. Thinker78 (talk) 06:06, 5 March 2018 (UTC) Edited 07:19, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

  • Draft:Labcyte – Cleanup requested here. Thanks. PaulMoon —Preceding undated comment added 02:36, 21 February 2018‎ (UTC)
Note that Draft:Labcyte was rejected for article status on 21 March. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 22:18, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Santiago Giraldo – There are two extremely long paragraphs and some information which is irrelevant, especially in the lead, with some present-tense alongside a lot of unsourced detail. Might be able to improve it a bit myself but I may not have enough time and I'm no expert at this, hence the reason why I've put a cleanup tag there and reported this. Broman178 (talk) 18:45, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Update: I have removed the two extremely long paragraphs, removed irrelevant information in first one (lead) and divided second one into smaller paragraphs so removed tag for lead and changed cleanup tag. However, more references will be needed later and some copyedits, reduction and expansion might be required in some places in the article, might be able to do some more, especially removing present tense, but if anyone else has other ways to improve this article, please do so.

  • Vinylon - style and tone of much of the text is too informal/"un-encylopedic". 2Q (talk) 20:57, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Road rage - Many maintenance problems. AmericanAir88 (talk) 14:43, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
