Halopedia:Article Improvement Drive
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The Article Improvement Drive is a community project to improve the wiki's content through bringing articles in dire need of improvement—from cleanup to content expansion and updates—to everyone's attention. The list is refreshed periodically with new articles requiring improvement, but previous entries will be kept on the list until those articles have been brought fully up to date. An article is considered sufficiently repaired when it is properly sourced, accurate, comprehensive and well formatted—in short, up to our general standards of quality.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the improvement effort or suggest new articles to the list on the project's talk page.

Other articles needing attention:
- Template:Walkthrough infobox needs to be added to walkthrough articles lacking it.
- Comic scans with blanked speech bubbles should be updated with the text intact as per this forum.
- The list of Forge objects needs to be updated to include all Halo 4-related material, including creation of subpages for each individual category.
- Many Halo 4 multiplayer map articles need to be expanded with information on map layout, features and gameplay strategies. See Avalanche for reference of a comprehensive map article.
- Game level transcripts need to be formatted in accordance with the the layout guide; for most articles, this means the standardization of the way characters and other subjects are referenced (e.g. omitting superfluous or overly long titles/ranks), as well as the addition of music tracks playing at a given time.
- Quote pages need to be updated according to the layout guide. For example, insignificant lines which are not quotable in any fashion should be removed. In addition, quotes which are part of a dialog between the subject and another character should feature a transcript of the lines of both characters as opposed to only those spoken by the title character. For an example of this in practice, see Forthencho/Quotes.
