Final Fantasy Wiki:Cleanup

From Final Fantasy Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Some of the Final Fantasy Wiki's articles may be poorly written or have many grammatical errors. However, these articles can be fixed by having a cleanup.

What is a cleanup?[edit]

A cleanup is exactly what the name says. It is a method of cleaning up an article so that its quality will improve. Pages which look messy, having many grammatical errors, or which are poorly written can be listed as requiring a cleanup. Users will see that these pages are in need of assistance and will work on them to improve them.

Marking articles for cleanup[edit]

When you've found a page that requires a cleanup, you can then add the cleanup template. In addition to the notice, the cleanup template has three optional parameters, allowing up to three bullet points to be utilized to state specifically what needs attention. At the top of the page, simply add {{Cleanup|<optional parameter 1>|<optional parameter 2>|<optional parameter 3>}}. Doing so will create this template at the top of the page:

This article is in need of a cleanup This article requires a cleanup to meet the Final Fantasy Wiki's quality standards and editing guidelines.
Please edit this page to improve it. Feel free to discuss the issues on the article's talk page.
  • optional parameter 1
  • optional parameter 2
  • optional parameter 3

If the article is very large, then it might be a good choice to mention on the article's talk page that it is in need of a cleanup and explain why.
