- This article is about maintenance duties for the wiki. For other tasks, see Pikipedia:Helping out.
The wiki has some maintenance tasks that will never be complete. They are just tasks that constantly show up. Examples include minor tasks that improve an article, cleaning up poor documentation, or fixing page problems. If you don't want to undertake a massive project, but still want to help out the wiki, this is a great place to get ideas from. Pick a task, select an article, and start contributing!
If a task has further details, you can click its name to go to the section on this page that elaborates on what to do.
Find articles and sections that need improving
While reading, you may find an article, or a section of an article, that desperately needs to be improved. You can edit it and improve it yourself, or leave a note for future editors to clean it up. For this, place one of the maintenance templates.
Find articles that don't follow guidelines
You can check articles against our policies and guidelines (the Pikan tool can help), and if you spot something wrong, like a game name that's not italicized, go right ahead and fix it! Alternatively, you can leave a maintenance template.
Find articles and files that are missing categories
Some articles and files are not under the categories they should be in. If you find one, please categorize it. Remember to use the deepest category possible! (Example: Categorize an image of an Orange Bulborb in Category:Orange Bulborb images instead of Category:Enemy images.)
Find low quality images
Find poor image descriptions
For any images you see that have an unhelpful or missing descriptions, please edit them and improve them!
