General advice

What you can do
  • Add relevant and necessary facts.
  • Add relevant and necessary references.
  • Balance NPOV by removing spectacular but on the whole irrelevant material.
  • Images. All articles should have relevant illustrations if possible. Look through the interwikis, or browse through Commons.
  • Copyedit. Many articles need a fair deal of copyediting:
    • Make sure the Lead section is up to standards.
    • Integrate "trivia"-sections into the text
    • Clean up Swenglish
