WikiProject Cleanup is a resource for Wikipedia cleanup information and discussion. Cleanup issues that this project covers may include wikification, spelling, grammar, typographical errors, tone, and sourcing. All users are welcome to help in editing or fixing any page on these lists. Please remember to remove the appropriate tag(s) off the page after cleaning an article, then strike-out the entry using <s> </s>, which produces: (sample text). This retains the listing for historical reference regarding accomplishments of the project. Please also document improvements on an article's talk page for the reference of other editors.

For comprehensive lists of pages requiring cleanup, which are automatically generated from the {{cleanup}} banners placed on articles, please refer to:

for older articles with issues that have not been dealt with in some time, refer to:

If you've arrived at this page from a link on a {{cleanup}} template that someone placed on an article, it most likely was because the article does not meet one or more of Wikipedia's standards on content and style. Try reading Wikipedia:Writing better articles to get a sense of what Wikipedia's standards are. The advice on that page should help editors to effectively clean up any article.

Information on the cleanup process may be found at Wikipedia:Cleanup process. Other resources may be found at Wikipedia:Cleanup resources and Wikipedia:Template messages/Cleanup, for help on posting problems with Wikipedia pages, or to use as a guide. For older entries, please refer to the project's archives.

Please place new posts at the top of the list.
