Tamora Pierce Wiki


This is the place where all things that need to be done can be added. Thus it serves two purposes: Giving people who find an article in desperate need of improvement but without enough time or knowledge on the specific subject an opportunity to let others know of the issue and thus also giving others something to do, when they don't know where help is needed most at the moment. Everyone may add articles here and doing so is highly encouraged. If you fix a problem that is mentioned, please mention in the comments that you have done so, but leave the entry if there is still more to do. If all problems have been fixed, please delete the entry in order to keep this page clean and orderly.


For more details about what users can do to help out the wiki, please contact me using my Message Wall.


For ease of use it might be helpful to structure proposals by universe and (if possible) most relevant series/novel and following a basic template is also encouraged:

====[[Name of the article]]====
'''Reasons''': [please add your reasons for thinking the article needs improvement so others know what needs to be done and don't forget adding your signature]

'''Comments''': [others may comment on the proposal, e.g. to voice their opinion--if they approve of the article being in need of improvement or not--or details their progress]

To do list

Tortallan Universe

Alanna: The First Adventure

Reasons: This plot section really needs a serious clean up to make it understandable and up to wiki standards. Beka of Pirate's Swoop (talk) 00:38, November 1, 2013 (UTC)   


The Woman Who Rides Like a Man


Reasons: for such an important character in The Women Who Rides Like a Man even if she only apperes in there it is really lacking important info. --Bookskiing

  • organize to wiki standards
    • add headers
    • add citations
  • add other sections, like personality and traits, phys desc., etc


Coronation Day Battle

Reasons: Citation-style of the Battle Description is incorrect for wiki and uses in-text APA citations and sometimes a form of MLA (and sometimes just a form that is completely made up). Should be in Chicago-style like the rest of wikipedia. Could also use some separation of paragraphs and subheadings to make the flow of the description section a lot clearer and more readable.

Comments: split up sections of the battle description, but still not complete — Madeline, Aug 31, 2016

The Immortals quartet


Reasons: Article is not incredibly informative, and could use a biography section. Her actions in The Dragon's Tale should also be added. —Madeline, Aug 30, 2016.


Reasons: There's much more info about Tkaa that could be added here. - Magewhisper


Protector of the Small

Deleted names under this heading, because I felt the pages now reflect what was brought up previously. Please add names if you feel like they need work. --Mk101Talk Thu June 16, 2016

Daughter of the Lioness

Dovasary Balitang

Reasons: Needs citations. --Madeline (talk) 14:02, February 3, 2017 (UTC)


Nuritin Balitang

Reasons: Article could use expansion and details, especially about the latter half of Trickster's Queen and her part in it. A Relationships section would also be good. —Madeline, June 20, 2016


Junai Dodeka

Reasons: needs heading and subheadings for article clarity because she is an important character. could also use a relationships section, with a major focus on her relationship with Aly. —Madeline, June 27 2016.

Comments: Added a small biography section. Still may need a relationships section. —Madeline, Aug 30, 2016.

Provost's Dog

Vrinday Kayu

Reasons: article not up to wiki standards, very basic, could use general formatting fix. --Madeline (talk) 13:57, February 2, 2017 (UTC)


Rosto the Piper

Reasons: page could use a general cleanup. tenses are all over the place and page would benefit from a relationships section. — Madeline June 19, 2016


Matthias Tunstall

Reasons: Biography not up to wiki standards. Headings should be added, and his involvement in Mastiff should be expanded. A relationships section should be added as well.


Sabine of Macayhill

Reasons: very important character in Mastiff, but nothing from that book is there. Also in need of a relationships section and general cleanup.

Comments: Added very basic relationships section. Organized prior information into subheadings under biography section. I am slowly but surely adding information from Mastiff to her page. —Madeline, June 18th, 2016.

Gareth III of Conté

Reasons: could use a general cleanup. add subheadings to biography for clarity, link necessary pages, add citations. —Madeline

Comments: Added subheadings to biography, and organized page to further fit wiki standards. Will go over it more thoroughly later and will add citations as well as a relationships section. —Madeline; June 19th, 2016

Tortall and Other Lands: A Collection of Tales

Reasons: It doesn't appear that much information at all has been added for any of these stories or their characters.

Comments: I will start working on these tales after I complete my update of Alex of Tirragen's page. Magewhisper June 18, 2016. Further update: more information has been added on these stories. Just more of the characters and stories need pages of their own. — Madeline, Aug 31, 2016

Emelanese Universe

The Circle of Magic


Reasons: Her biography is not detailed at all for such an important character in the series. —Madeline, Jul 14, 2016. Rewrite new article additions about her family life (which were copy/pasted from Pierce's tumblr, in our own words. —Madeline, Sept 28, 2016

Comments: Biography much more detailed now, but should be rewritten according to wiki standards (see above).

Niklaren Goldeye

Reasons: is not extremely detailed about events in ShatterglassMadeline, Jul 13, 2016.


Briar's Book

Reasons: The article was originally copied from the wikipedia and thus the plot summary should be rewritten to be our own work. --PurzelTalk 19:13, January 27, 2010 (UTC)


Briar Moss

Reasons: His relationships-section realy needs more content with details on the relationships to Rosethorn, the girls and Evvy, probably even Lady Zenadia, Empress Berenene and Caidy. --PurzelTalk 15:29, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • His involvement in Battle Magic should be added and expanded upon.

Comments: Relationships section has been completed pretty fully—just needs expansion on Battle Magic. —Madeline

Melting Stones

Evumeimei Dingzai

Reasons: biography should mention what happened in Battle MagicMadeline, June 16, 2016


General tasks

  • Oldest Pages, which lists all articles that haven't been edited in a while and thus were probably neglected in the near past
  • Orphaned Pages, which lists all articles that aren't linked to from other articles and thus can't be found through "normal" browsing through articles and clicking on intra-wiki links (links to those pages should be added from other, appropriate articles)
  • Wanted Pages, which lists all "red links" in the existing article, also showing which pages are wanted the most, e.g. giving the number of articles linking to those non-existing pages;
  • Stubs, a category listing all pages with the "stub" template; this often indicates that the articles are too short/lack vital information and are thus in need of improvement (because the tags are added by people, not a computer, there might also be articles which don't really qualify for the template, then simply remove it)
  • Articles from Wikipedia (those should be rewritten, at least the parts that were taken from wikipedia, to make them our original work)
