Looking for something to do to improve Star Wars Merchandise Wiki, but can't think of anything? Looking for a few small, quick improvements to make while you plan your next big project? Here are some suggestions.

Add images[edit source]

Some articles would benefit greatly with the addition of one or more images. You can find articles that have been requested to be enhanced with an image here. To add an image to an article you must first upload the image, also including the image's source and licensing. Here is the list of uploaded files and here the gallery of the most recent files. Here you can see a list of images that need clean up. Here you can find a picture tutorial that tells you how to insert and modify an image inside an article. If the article has an image request tag, don't forget to remove it once you add the image.

Merge articles that need merging[edit source]

Sometimes, two users get the same idea for an article, but put them on pages with different names. When we find them, we tag them to be merged, in hopes someone will combine the two into a single, cohesive article. You can find articles in need of merging here. Don't forget to remove the merge tags when you're done!

Create redlink articles[edit source]

Many articles reference topics that haven't been addressed in Star Wars Merchandise Wiki yet, creating redlinks. Some reference many such topics; these articles are less useful to our users, because much of the related information they might want to seek is unavailable. It is helpful to create new articles to fill in the gaps of these articles with an excess of redlinks.

Create a wanted page[edit source]

Some topics are referenced by a great many pages, but haven't had an article created about them yet. You can find a list of these heavily-referenced topics, sorted by how many references they have, here.

Correct spelling[edit source]

Not everyone spells correctly. Bad spelling reflects poorly on the professionalism of Star Wars Merchandise Wiki. Search articles for typos and fix them.

Fix double redirects[edit source]

Sometimes, an article redirects to another article, which in turn redirects to yet another article. When this happens, instead of smoothly being redirected, a user must instead manually click through to the third page. In order to prevent this, we try to eliminate double redirects, pointing all redirects at their final destination. You can find a list of double redirects here.

Categorize a page[edit source]

Categories assist in easy navigation by grouping similar topics together. You can find a list of articles in need of categorization here.

Expand a short page[edit source]

Some articles are merely placeholders, waiting for an intrepid user like yourself to come along and expand upon them. You can find a list of our shortest pages, sorted in order of their brevity, here.
