Revision as of 04:19, April 8, 2015


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. 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

Create page for Young Warriors: Stories of Strength published in 2005

Tortallan Universe

The Song of the Lioness

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)   


Alexander of Tirragen

Reasons: For a character as important as Alex the article is missing more details. I've just tried to give it some structure but the new sections need content and Alex' biography also has some gaps and loose ends to be filled. I'll try to see to it while going through the Song of the Lioness quartet, but perhaps someone has the time and information to do it sooner? --PurzelTalk 10:33, April 11, 2010 (UTC)


Myles of Olau

Reasons: The provided headings need content and the Biography-sections needs to be cleaned up. There are some bits about his relationships and personality in the biography. For such an important characters Myles' article is lacking much vital information. --PurzelTalk 17:27, May 16, 2010 (UTC) Comments:

Roger of Conté


  • adding sections:
    • "Relationships"
    • "Personality and traits" done by Mhairimcevoy
  • expanding section "Skills and abilities" (his being a good sword fighter and armorer; details on his magical abilities, it's quite general so far)

--PurzelTalk 19:03, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comments: While Mhairimcevoy added a personality section to Roger's article I still think there is more to say about him and the section could still do with some expansion. --PurzelTalk 15:29, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Crystal sword


  • Appearence seciton. There's not much about the actual sword like the hilt or the blade.



Reasons: It's a stub an he plays an important role during the book even though he dies very early on. I believe there need to be a character template and a persoality section added- mhairimcevoy


  • I agree, that there should be more about Ishak. I'm concentrating on Alanna: The First Adventure at the moment, so it'll be some time before I come to The Woman Who Rides Like a Man, but then I'll certainly add some more to Ishak's article. If anyone else has the time and information to do it sooner is certainly welcome to do so. --PurzelTalk 10:33, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Protector of the Small

Domitan of Masbolle

Reasons: Considering he is quite an important character in Squire and Lady Knight the article is too short and should really be expanded. --PurzelTalk 19:13, January 27, 2010 (UTC)


Daughter of the Lioness

Alianne of Pirate's Swoop

Reasons: For a protagonist her article is fairly short. Her biography needs expansion concerning the events of Trickster's Queen and after, the "Personality and traits" sections needs to be expanded, as does the "Relationships" section and she certainly needs a section for "Skills and abilities". --PurzelTalk 19:03, January 19, 2010 (UTC)


Mequen Balitang

Reasons: He plays quite an important role in Trickster's Choice and still his article is missing most of the vital information. The section headings already provided need to be filled and the relationships must be expanded. --PurzelTalk 19:03, January 19, 2010 (UTC)


Saraiyu Balitang

Reasons: Even more so than Mequen she is an important character with a stub-article. All sections need expansion and more detail. --PurzelTalk 19:03, January 19, 2010 (UTC)


Dovasary Balitang

Reasons: As with Mequen and Sarai this article doesn't at all go with her importance in the novels. I also don't think the image fits her, considering she was described as having creamy-gold skin, not a sallow-looking one. --PurzelTalk 19:03, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comments: Somewhat revised, though it probably needs more detail for the section on Trickster's Queen.

Trickster's Queen

Reasons: The plot-section needs to be rewritten, because it was originally copied from the wikipedia. Also there aren't any sections for the characters or publication history, yet. --PurzelTalk 20:45, January 22, 2010 (UTC)


Daughter of the Lioness

Reasons: As with the novels, the content was almost completely taken from the wikipedia and should therefore be rewritten. Short book summaries should also be added. --PurzelTalk 20:45, January 22, 2010 (UTC)


Provost's Dog

Matthias Tunstall

Reasons: There's still a relationships section missing, although there would be a lot to write about him. --PurzelTalk 06:26, March 3, 2010 (UTC) Needs a clean-up, some places mention Mastiff, some say when Mastiff comes out. Comments:

Provost's Dog

Reasons: It has still the "taken from wikipedia" tag and thus must be rewritten so that the tag can be removed. In detail we need:

  • Introductory paragraph giving the most vital information - Done. --PurzelTalk 19:27, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • Short book summaries and covers - Done. --PurzelTalk 19:27, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • Characters: I'm actually not really sure what to do about them. We should either remove those characters only appearing in Terrier (like Deirdry and Crookshank) or also add some of the most important characters from Bloodhound. I'd prefer the first solution, to remove the Terrier-only characters, because the article is about the whole series and characters appearing in Terrier are listed there. We should only have characters of importance to the whole series on that article. I've gone with the first solution. The characters remaining should still get new descriptions. --PurzelTalk 19:27, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • Perhaps we could also add some information on publication background or trivia

I'd suggest taking The Song of the Lioness as sort of reference on what to add and how to present it. --PurzelTalk 06:39, March 3, 2010 (UTC)


Emelanese Universe

The Circle of Magic

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 relly 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)



Resons: In my opinion the article is already quite good. However, there isn't a relationship section yet and Rosie really deserves one. Lark and Crane both need to be mentioned there, as do the four kids, perhaps even Niko and Frostpine and Moonstream, but certainly Evvy. --PurzelTalk 12:01, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Comments: Created the relationships section with basic entries on Lark, Crane and Briar. It think the girls and Evvy could still be added, Niko, Frostpine, Moonstream and Duke Vedris also. --PurzelTalk 09:30, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Melting Stones

Evumeimei Dingzai


  • really needs a general clean-up
  • infobox and picture(s) [preferable from book covers] (Picture added to infobox By Sara_Ayers)
  • missing sections:
    • Personality and traits
    • Physical description
    • Relationships

--PurzelTalk 19:03, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

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)
