To do lists

Wikipedia is, by number of articles, the largest encyclopedia ever to exist. However, that comes at a cost: many are stubs, or otherwise need attention. If you like, go ahead, be bold, and jump right in. If you aren't ready to fly solo, you can participate in a Collaboration.

Template:Wikipedia:Community Portal/Opentask Not sure where to report a certain type of problem with article content? If it exists, it's probably listed at Wikipedia:Maintenance.


To improve the quality of articles which are short or lacking in detail, Wikipedia's community organizes collaborations to expand articles.

Active improvement teams


Help clear up the backlog of articles to be wikified! Wikification is the procees of making an article conform to the guide to layout and Manual of Style. This involves formatting, links, sections, and checking for other things such as copyright violations and references. If necessary, you may have it be proposed for deletion. Wikification is an easy way to improve Wikipedia!


WikiProjects are ongoing team efforts to improve articles having to do with a particular subject, and to manage the logistics of that topic. Hundreds exist — examine the master list to find one that interests you. They are separate from, though may work with, Collaborations.

Language translation

Wikipedia is not just in English! Versions exist in many different languages. To fill in some of the English Wikipedia's gaps, we translate articles from other languages into English. You can view a list of articles that need translation from any language, or, in a few cases, by only one language (this is only available for major foreign languages).
