Articles to write and cleanup things to do. This used to be in Sushi's namespace, so this list may look familiar. Go ahead and write one yourself! If you see a red link somewhere in the wiki, be bold and create the article! Also, if you come up with an idea and don't have the means to create it yourself, whether for a specific article or a broad idea, add it to this list.

Some places that may be of help:

And now, on to the list.

Pre-NaNo 2014 cleanup

A few small changes are particular to the the fact that NaNo happens every year. A lot of these changes are wiki-wide, and fixing a few of these on just a few pages would be such a huge help. You have no idea.

  • Checking and updating moderators on the pages for individual forums
  • Checking and updating URLs that link to the NaNo site, especially after the switch to Ruby on Rails in 2011. Replacing those that link to forums, pages, or popular threads. Thankfully user profiles appear to redirect, but checking those is also worth doing if they're linked.
  • Checking Region subpages and adding the many new regions to the appropriate subpage as pages to be written (or write them yourself if you'd like). Dear Baty are there a lot of new regions. Update MLs to the current ones.
  • Changing tenses as appropriate when you see them. Things that refer to 2010 may need to be referred to in the past tense, for example.
  • Basically, look for out of date stuff and make it, well, not out of date!
  • Go through Special:AncientPages. This page sorts articles by last edited, with articles edited a very long time ago showing up first. This page would probably make finding out of date articles significantly easier.
  • Find links to OLL that should reference National Novel Writing Month (nonprofit). Fix. (By the way, National Novel Writing Month goes to the event page since that's what more people are looking for.)
  • Remove the www in articles where nanowrimo.org is linked. This means the URL should reaed nanowrimo.org instead of www.nanowrimo.org.

Articles to write or complete

Photos and other non-article things to add

  • Photos of the 2012 trading cards done.
  • General photos of donor swag
  • General photos of store merchandise
  • A framed winner certificate or two
  • A template marking an article as out of date. This would be useful if you know the article is out of date but can't be bothered to fix it yourself or fixing it would take a considerable amount of effort/research.
  • Anything else?

Anything else? Add it to the list! Or better yet, search for it, and if it's not there, start an article yourself!
