The wiki needs to be ready for translation by May 1st, so help is needed. We've compiled a list of tasks that need to be done, and a list of pages that are to be translated.

There's always a number of things that can be improved on the wiki. This is intended as a non-exhaustive list of things that need to be done in order to point editors that don't know what to edit in a useful direction.

At the end of this page there's also a section showing the list of pages to be translated, and who has looked through each page (beyond the wiki administrators) to look for work needed. If you'd like to help, please check out one or both sections.

==Specific tasks==
 +
*Update pages in the following categories:
 +
**[[:Category:1.1]]
 +
**[[:Category:1.2]]
 +
**[[:Category:1.3]]
 +
**[[:Category:1.4]]
 +
**[[:Category:1.5]]
  
== Tasks ==
+
* Build up the [[Fuel]] page or merge it into other resource pages
In order for the wiki to be ready for translation on May 1st, a number of tasks should be done.
+
* Build up the [[Attache]] page or merge it into other pages
  
Everything with "high" priority is imperative, while "medium" and "low" would be nice but aren't as important.
+
==Ongoing tasks==
 +
Apart from personal projects and goal-specific tasks, the wiki will also always need a hand with the following:
  
Anything in "none" are tasks that'd be nice to do at some point, but which are not relevant for translation of the wiki. These tasks should not be done until after translation has started.
+
===Authorial/content generation===
 +
* Create the articles in [[Special:WantedPages]] or in [[Project:Administration#Common searches]]
 +
* Address issues in articles of the following categories:
 +
** [[:Category:Stubs]] - '''{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Stubs}}}}''' page(s).
 +
** [[:Category:Expand]] - '''{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Expand}}}}''' page(s).
 +
** [[:Category:Potentially outdated]] - '''{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Potentially outdated}}-2}}''' page(s).
 +
** [[:Category:Rewrite]] - '''{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Rewrite}}}}''' page(s).
 +
** [[:Category:Verification needed]] - '''{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Verification needed}}}}''' page(s).
  
If working on a task, please add "Claimed by <username> — " to the start of it and move to the bottom of the list so as to ensure time isn't wasted on conflicting edits. Remove the claim and cross the task out when done.
+
===Editorial===
 +
* Improve the [[:Category:Articles by quality|quality of pages]] that are not A-class, especially those that are Stub or Start-class
 +
* Improve the formatting/readability of existing articles

=== Unsorted ===
 
You can add new tasks here if you see something that's missing or otherwise sub-par.
 
 
 
[[Hotkeys]] is partially done.  It may need some editing or additions.  It also needs linking on the front page once complete.
 
 
 
== Page review ==
 
Below is a list of all pages considered relevant to the translation efforts and a column for noting who has looked through the page. To help ensure that missing or sub-par content is spotted, we urge anyone who has the time, especially if they feel they know a topic well, to look through one or more pages on the list, write up any tasks (if any) that need to be done that aren't already listed (add them to "unsorted), and note down their username in the review column. This should ensure that every page gets looked over by at least one extra set of eyes.
 
 
 
Looking through pages that haven't been looked through is of course the most useful, but even looking through one that's already been looked through can be useful, especially if it is a topic you know well!
 
 
 
If you feel something important is missing from this list, add it in the "page suggestions" section below.
