- Check the Wiki update forum for any questions or issues that should be addressed on the Wiki
- If necessary, update the Wiki to record the issue or answer the questions
- If appropriate, post a reply in the forum with a link to the relevant wiki page
- Review the Wiki forum on missing terms and consider creating Redirects to them.
- Check the NeedInfo template report to see where an editor believes more information is required.
- Provide pages that people want in the wiki
- Check the NeedPage template report to see what pages have this special placeholder requiring an entire page be required. (This is similar to the Wanted Pages above, but does not show a red link to users due to it not existing.)
- Check the NeedImage template report to see what pages have this special placeholder requiring image updates.
- Check the Update for Editor Change template report to see what pages require modifications for an editor UI change.
