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.

To do list
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
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: There's much more info about Tkaa that could be added here. - Magewhisper
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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).
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. --Purzel • Talk 15:29, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
- His involvement in Battle Magic should be added and expanded upon.
- 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)
- Pages with the fewest revisions, which lists all articles that haven't been edited often; those few revisions often indicate a lack of detail)
- Short Pages, the same as the above;
- 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)
- Articles that need to be wikified (as suggested by the name those articles must be brought in a clear structure and formatted to meet wiki-standards)
