Maintenance tasks

The following relevant special pages are listed here because they can't be placed in this category in the usual way.

Places to check for vandalism
Errors to fix
  • Special:BrokenRedirects, redirects that don't point to any existing page (either change the redirect, delete it, or create the missing article)
  • Special:DoubleRedirects, redirects that point to other redirects (bypass any intermediate redirects and make all redirect pages point to an actual article)
  • Special:Deadendpages, articles that don't link to any others
  • Special:Lonelypages, articles not linked to by any others (consider adding reciprocal links from articles these pages link to)
  • Special:Disambiguations, links to disambiguation pages (generally should be replaced by links to more specific page titles)
Category maintenance
  • Special:Uncategorizedpages, articles not placed in any category (all pages except the Main Page should be placed in at least one category)
  • Special:Uncategorizedcategories, categories not placed in any other (parent) category (all categories except the "top-most" one, called Category:Browse, must contain a [[Category:]] link to its parent category)
  • Special:Wantedcategories, categories used in articles but not existing yet (add a [[Category:]] link to create, or check "What links here" to recategorize the relevant articles)
  • Special:Unusedcategories, categories that exist but contain no pages or subcategories (look for relevant stuff to populate these categories, or delete them)
  • Special:Mostcategories, articles with the most categories (less relevant ones may need to be removed)
  • Special:Mostlinkedcategories, categories with the most articles and subcategories (may need to be split up into smaller, separate categories)
