  • Arijit Singh - Too many citations, Lead is too short, article is too long to navigate and needs to be broken into sections, it is unclear, confusing and some sections are overly detailed while some needs expansion, and it needs to be updated with proper grammar, formatting, sections, headings and sub-headings etc. Justlookingforthemoment (talk) 10:26, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Shrek The Musical - Trivial sections and very plot sections. AmericanAir88(talk) 14:03, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Milton Berle - bare URLs in references. Tinton5 (talk) 06:27, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  • John Saxon - the television section should be in table format like the film section. Lacon432 (talk) 05:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Akhmadov brothers – Please write my article correctly, which I wrote using Google translator Lamberd (talk) 22:16, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
    I'll clarify for this user that the references for this work are all in (what I suspect is) Russian. –MJLTalk 07:13, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Michael Tippett - Intro is uncited and is poorly formatted with no template used. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Данјул Финеган (talkcontribs) 11:01, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment – The WP:LEAD section of articles often do not need sources because the lead section summarizes content in other sections of the article. If the latter content has sources, then citations are not needed in the lead. North America1000 09:55, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Umvolkung – needs general overhaul (particularly wiki clean-up) and probably some more appropriate references.--Hildeoc (talk) 20:51, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Barkha Sharma - Have removed irrelevant information & cite links and cleaned up the article for neutral tonality. Please check and help finish the cleanup process. Castdates (talk) 12:10, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

- I've made edits to fix it partly. Would be great if anyone else can check to verify yellow tickY Partly done --Castdates (talk) 08:02, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Rolling distribution - Some references are outdated or not available anymore; Section "Common myths, misconceptions" seems un-encyclopaedic (delete? then merge?) --Brevity (talk) 15:54, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
 Done --Brevity (talk) 07:22, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

April

yellow tickY Partly done Fixed reference errors Syntaxlord (talk) 19:00, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
 Done Fixed all reference styles and added archives. Sincerely, Masum Reza 04:39, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Self-storage box - this article is very poorly written. The grammar is wonky, one of the section titles appears to have been written like a computer code statement, and the sources used aren't great. Template:Partly Done Fixed some grammatical errors InvisibleUp (talk) 15:28, 23 April 2019 (UTC) Jerome Paterson (talk) 09:42, 13 May 2019 (UTC) fixed some of the grammar and added some references.
  • Aleksander Vinter discography - the way this page looks like is all messed up and disorganized. Incomplete tables and a lack of quotations for song names and organization are very prevalent here. Lacon432 (talk) 03:29, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Effects of Hurricane Sandy in New York - some footnotes on this page do not seem to exist, nor do they appear anywhere on "references" list Some pages have a separate "footnotes" or "notes" section. These appear to be stale and are confusing with actual reference footnotes that are included. Tinton5 (talk) 07:29, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
  • BLK Super Speciality Hospital - The page carries the template message 'created or edited in return for undisclosed payments.' Therefore, I kindly request someone to clean-up the article and make the required changes for me or provide any suggestion for the same. Thank you in advance. Floyd1965 (talk) 08:45, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
  • List of Solar System objects by size - A majority of size and mass measurements are outdated and uncited. Some of the wikitables in this list don't display correctly (probably due to the image sizes, I can't seem to find the cause) and there are several named references being invoked but not defined. Nrco0e (talk) 02:40, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done – Made the "footnotes" on the columns into hyperlinked footnotes. I also found a revision from 2015 with the symbol-footnotes intact, and managed to make edits that added those back in. However, there were intermediate edits and I didn't have time to re-write the whole thing, so I pasted the whole page as I had it into sandbox. Please feel free to copy & paste these notations as you see fit until I have enough time to get back to it. —A garbage person (talk) 15:21, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Dorothée - As it says on the talk page: "This article is written with very poor standards. The grammar is off (using literally translated french constructions) and the repeated use of exclamation marks betrays the fact that this was written by a fan with little to no oversight. The information may be factual but completely lacks citations; some details seem very anecdotal. This article needs a serious review, a lot of additional research and a substantial rewrite" Mvcg66b3r (talk) 21:02, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Base Realignment and Closure - some bare URLs in references. Tinton5 (talk) 03:31, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done I fixed refs 12 and 13, but ref 14 is missing the URL. Syntaxlord (talk) 01:23, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
 Done I was able to format most of the URLs, but I had to mark one dead link. Syntaxlord (talk) 21:40, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Ramzan Akhmadov - check text. Lamberd (talk) 13:49, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
  • DAU (project) - film project. Needs references cleanup. --Bbarmadillo (talk) 19:11, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
  • L.O.S - Article on a band that appears to be notable, thanks to media coverage in their country, but the writing and formatting are in a sorry state. This one should be a fairly easy cleanup for any volunteer with half an hour to spare. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 13:36, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
    • Fixed Did some grammatical cleanup Syntaxlord (talk) 22:31, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Hair Peace Salon – This is a reposting from December 2018, as a then-tense dispute has since mellowed. See that particular string of comments, plus the linked AfD discussion and the article's talk page. For the Cleanup experts here, do you think it's worth the effort to significantly reduce the article's horrific citebombing and relentless flood of minor trivia (which everybody other than the creator thinks is necessary), when the creator is likely to just revert? The band has been deemed notable, so the article is permitted to exist here, but my gawd is it awful in its current state. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 13:34, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
@COI Noticeboard discussion about this article but the issue was ignored. I personally think that the main contributor of this article has a clear conflict of interest (they created 90%+ content of the Belarusian and the English article) and their account should be blocked. I tried to clean it carefully reviewing the sources, but there are over 300 of them, eh... -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 19:18, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
@Bbarmadillo: I would love to WP:TNT that article and pare it down to what the band deserves, but I don't want to do the work because the creator might just revert any change. That's why I have called for a team effort here, or "strength in numbers" if you will, because a team can be more convincing on the need for drastic action. I suppose the article is isn't really hurting anything if few people read it, but it still violates a heckuva lot of guidelines. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 19:52, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
I also started a topic at WP:WCC. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 09:48, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
  • List of countries by firearm-related death rate - Lots of issues here. Uses one website almost exclusively; lists this source in the table instead of just linking to relevant citations; compares data across several years within the same row; should also sort with the highest death rate on top. I've done some work to improve the External Links section, which lists several sources that could be used to update the page. --A garbage person (talk) 16:44, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

March

Fixed. North America1000 16:51, 16 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Taylor Anderson - The lead section appears to have been mostly copied and pasted from the author's website, and I was hoping someone more knowledgeable than myself could fix that.

Tbilisi1 (talk) 21:39, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Bill Littlejohn - "Partial filmography" section could use some clean up. Tinton5 (talk) 06:23, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Ivan Albright - Deceased American Magical Realist painter. Entire article is in need of sourcing and removal of puffery. The broken EBSCO link needs replacement. The Magical Realism section needs a relevancy overhaul or removal. -- A garbage person (talk) 17:14, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Tagged "linkrot" for the automatic bare URLs fix. --Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:38, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Removed puffery. Syntaxlord (talk) 02:34, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Syntaxlord and Bbarmadillo! I've crossed out the things you did on the request.-- A garbage person (talk) 21:26, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

February

yellow tickY Partly done Fixed bare urls and added red link tag. AmericanAir88(talk) 03:58, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done Cleaned up the red links.SWP13 (talk) 19:17, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done Cleaned up some of the more promotional wording A Very Purple Ostrich (talk) 17:31, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
  • James Forlong - the sections on Rivers of Life ("Rivers of Life", "Some Themes", "Quotes") need rewriting and properly wikifying. -Stelio (talk) 14:19, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Cristina D'Avena - She's an important singer in Italy, we could improve it. -- XMiroku~ (talk) 10:38, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Struck the above. No cleanup rationale has been provided. Requests for article improvements can be placed at WP:TAFINOM. North America1000 00:50, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
  • I agree that it needs cleanup. Going to the article immediately prompts a translation option, and some of her discography might be better organized with a table. Additionally, the article is still tagged as needing to be updated. Syntaxlord (talk) 21:48, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

January

  • Today's Menu for the Emiya Family - a Japanese manga and ONA. Needs sources, expansion and fix grammar. -- Aerkdude (talk) 03:46, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Virial expansion - a topic in gas physics. Generally the "Second and third virial coefficients" section needs some references, and the last section contains casual advice that lectures to the reader. -- Antifracture (talk) 16:10, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Nightforce Optics - US optics company. Looks notable to me with many references at trusted sources, esp. military media. The article, however, needs shortening.--Bbarmadillo (talk) 09:42, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
