Things are listed roughly in the order of decreasing urgency: urgent stuff is on top, long term things are in the bottom.

Immediate priority

  • Bring this page up to date. Move old stuff into Erfwiki:Maintenance Portal/Archive, leave still relevant things. Also, Improvement Drive, Main Page stuff and everything related. It's all significantly outdated, mostly 2012 stuff still lingering as "ongoing".
  • Get Category:Candidates for speedy deletion handled again. I actually keep saying this for more than a year now. Requires a privileged user. I would be able to step up for it.
  • Splitting Hvs.tCF into book 3: Hvs.tCF and book 4: Lies and Dolls. Step 1: figure out what are all the changes needed to do --DukeBG (talk) 04:52, 4 July 2017 (EDT)

Ongoing stuff

Urgent stuff

Long term stuff

  • Please figure out how to make {{Template:ID}} work to help in wikifying script text. Or explain the really easy way to do what needs to be done–Dan Hoeytalk 02:53, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
  • There is an issue with panel-by-panel reading skipping over the Text updates. Can anyone fix this? User:Commander I. Heartly Noah
    • Along with this, there are no written descriptions of the art for the text updates. We need to create a way to have a panel, with description & text for these updates. It seems we could just do them in the normal way, only they have 1 panel instead of 12 or so. Right? CIHN
    • I was going through the annotated panels and updating missing ref and noticed that. Is there a fix for this yet? I'd do it, but I don't know wiki - Housellama 3-October-2012
  • Finish Quotes pages.
    • Magic
    • Characters
    • Mechanics, possibly?

Maintenance Tasks

  • Regularly check on the list of Wanted Pages to see if there is anything you can contribute.
    • 1863 of these found at 09:55, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
    • 441 as of 22:04, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
    • 20 on June 4, 2009 9:53 (UTC)
    • 10 on 13 November 2009, 20:55 (UTC)
  • Keep an eye on Dead-End, Uncategorized, and Unused pages. As well as Unused Categories. Attempt to fix as appropriate.
    • I've been whittling down the Uncategorized pile by putting a "Frame Contents" category on the comic Text/Description pages. After that bit of housekeeping, we may want to request a "Comic" namespace and put those pages there so that other articles show up in the "Random Page" function. SteveMB 18:13, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
    • We've knocked out the panels, but the Descriptions and Texts for each panel remain; I dunno what to do. Make a new category? Will their Categories appear on the Panel page as well? Will it throw things off? CIHN July 17 2009 - oh, noinclude. of course ...aaaaand... DONE! (June 19) Holy Boop. 1,000 pages.
      • OK, it looks like the wiki pages for comic pages/panels are basically done except for minor format/style tweaking and ongoing additions of updates and annotation footnotes. SteveMB 14:21, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
        • Uncategorized Pages has been cleaned out again. We'll need to keep an eye out to make sure that the "Frame Contents" category continues to be used correctly with Book 2. --MisterB777 06:09, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Review pages for advancement from Speculation to Proposed Canon. New information needs to confirm and/or change old theories, promoting or demoting them in turn.
    • A lot of old pages were written as Speculation because the authors were overly cautious. We know a lot more than some people think. I'm working my way through all Pages in the Speculation Category to look for advancement. Rob is only checking pages in the Propose dCanon category, so unless this is done, it will remain Speculation forever. --Kreistor 18:39, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Wiki Organization, added this page to help organize wiki as a whole. -- Paper Golem
  • Template:Blog is broken, and ought to be either fixed, or have Template:Erf substituted everywhere the former is used. Abb3w 03:14, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
    This has beed since fixed to use Template:Erf inside Template:Blog, but it's actually worth it to get rid of all uses of blog and replace it with erf everywhere. --DukeBG (talk) 18:06, 16 May 2016 (EDT)
  • Updating the tamplates for IPTSF... hopefully these will work since there's no images. --MisterB777 12:29, 2 November 2011 (EDT)
