Intro

As information sprawls across the wiki, we're in constant need of help and efforts to keep it tame, trimmed, and usable - purging old/broken information and links, creating and updating portal pages for various user groups and topics, condensing screenfuls of discussion on talk pages into short, accurate, easy-to-read updates... I'm sure you can think of more.

If you'd like to help battle chaos, please join in - just edit pages, no need to ask permission. If you have a request for cleanup, post here. If you've cleaned up a page and want reviews/polishing final touches, post here. Go for it.

Also see Category:Cleanup for pages needing cleanup. Use Template:Cleanup to mark pages in need of revision by adding the words {{Cleanup}} to the top of the article.
