Looking for something to do to improve Engineering Wiki, but can't think of anything? Looking for a few small, quick improvements to make while you plan your next big project? Here are some suggestions.

Merge articles that need mergingEdit

Sometimes, two users get the same idea for an article, but put them on pages with different names. When we find them, we tag them to be merged, in hopes someone will combine the two into a single, cohesive article. You can find articles in need of merging here. Don't forget to remove the merge tags when you're done!

Create redlink articlesEdit

Many articles reference topics that haven't been addressed in Engineering Wiki yet, creating redlinks. Some reference many such topics; these articles are less useful to our users, because much of the related information they might want to seek is unavailable. It is helpful to create new articles to fill in the gaps of these articles with an excess of redlinks; you can find such articles here. Don't forget to remove the redlink tag from the original article once the majority of the links have been filled in.

Create a wanted pageEdit

Some topics are referenced by a great many pages, but haven't had an article created about them yet. You can find a list of these heavily-referenced topics, sorted by how many references they have, here.

Create a requested pageEdit

Users sometimes request the creation of a particular article. You can find a list of such requests here. One possible source is Wikipedia; see how to do it with proper acknowledgment.

Correct spellingEdit

Not everyone spells correctly. Bad spelling reflects poorly on the professionalism of Engineering Wiki. You can find a list of articles with misspellings here.

Fix double redirectsEdit

Sometimes, an article redirects to another article, which in turn redirects to yet another article. When this happens, instead of smoothly being redirected, a user must instead manually click through to the third page. In order to prevent this, we try to eliminate double redirects, pointing all redirects at their final destination. You can find a list of double redirects here.

Categorize a pageEdit

Categories assist in easy navigation by grouping similar topics together. You can find a list of articles in need of categorization here.

Expand a short pageEdit

Some articles are merely placeholders, waiting for an intrepid Engineering Wiki like yourself to come along and expand upon them. You can find a list of our shortest pages, sorted in order of their brevity, here.
