Tasks: Articles

Quick Tasks

  1. Sandbox -- proposed Collaboration Categories update; see PMs
  2. Fix incorrect article-names
    • Resolve confusing article-names
    • Correct article-names that still have the old "no space before the ("
      • Use redirect as needed until DB "Wiki" button links are also updated.
  3. Make sure all Trunked Radio System articles are linked from the appropriate county pages, not just the Trunked Radio System (ST) page; so that when deprecated, removing the link from the Trunked Radio Systems (ST) page does not orphan the deprecated page, since it is linked from the county page.
    • This saves effort of moving deprecated links to a deprecated links article, which is/was the exact same list as is found on the equivalent Category:Deprecated Trunked Systems page.
  4. Consider parsing out the glossary-terms found in article Military Monitoring Glossary and make each a separate glossary article with appropriate glossary categories assigned.
    • Benefit: Each term can then be linked-to by other articles.
    • Benefit: Each term will be listed individually in the "...Glossary" categories and will save a navigation-step.
    • Benefit: Terms can be in multiple "...Glossary" categories, like Military and Aviation
    • See User:QDP2012/10
  5. Move MOSWIN RIDs from county-pages to separate pages and assign the "...RID/UIDs" categories.
  6. Change VIPER P25 Radio ID's layout to one sortable-table.
  7. For Category:New York and similar categories, rename "City of..." and "Town of..." pages so that they start follow "(county) (NY) (city/town)" convention.
  8. Review and finish compiling User:QDP2012/6#Wiki_pages_deprecated_by_BCFY_pages. As appropriate recommend "redirects" or "notes" for the RR Wiki pages, that follow the existing example.
  9. Review the pages in Category:FreeSCAN, and consider renaming them so they all have the same capitalization "FreeSCAN" or "FreeScan" or "Freescan" to match the software's official name-style. Then update the category name likewise.
  10. Rename articles related to Northern Illinois Police and Fire Unit IDs so that the state abbreviation is in parentheses, per the standard naming convention. Consider moving data from multi-county generically-named pages to county-specific-named pages.
  11. Apply Template:Infobox_Aviation to:
  12. See this page:
    • Link related Wiki pages back to the above page, and to each other
    • Add "software" related categories to RadioReference.com_Web_Service and related pages
  13. Make sure that "Marine..." categories are applied to all articles which already have "Marine... Freqs" categories applied to them; (likely will be "Bridge" articles.)
  14. Rename international airport pages to match US airport naming standard
    • Airport-name (FAA) County (ST)
    • Update template as needed to handle international callsigns, and links to, and to possibly hide or disable link to AirNav when airport does not exist in its site.
  15. Check to see if an article exists related to Setting up op25 to stream to broadcastify Thread

Longer/Recurring Tasks

  1. Finish incomplete TRVA pages
  2. Use Templates:DB,Forum in Collaboration box Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Collaboration
  3. List conventions and standards for consideration by admins as possibly part of Wiki help articles.
    • Standardize article names accordingly
  4. Confirm correct categories on all articles
    1. Remove parent-category from articles when child-category has been assigned.
      • Example: Remove "Business Frequencies" when "Communications Providers Frequencies" is applied
      • Example: Remove "Utilities Frequencies" when "Common Carriers Frequencies" is applied
  5. In articles with long lists (like Brevity Codes lists), use table-layout to put column(s) side-by-side so that page-length is decreased. -- do as needed, not systemically
  6. Add "Return to" links as appropriate (to avoid dead-end pages)
  7. If an article's purpose is simply to list articles that are in a specific category, then replace the article with a link to the category.
    • See Brevity Codes article for example. -- done
    • Consider replacing the Deprecated... articles with links or redirects to the related category -- done.
    • Consider Encrypted Agencies article and applying Category:Encryption by State; and possibly other sub-cat for encryption-related equipment. -- no


  • Goals:
  1. Eliminate needless "Red-links"
  2. If red-links are guaranteed to be static, like lists of counties, then keep them because they
    1. do not change, and
    2. will serve as valid links if the related Wiki pages are created.
  3. Else, Review and either edit or delete each red-link.
    1. Example: In Category:Trunked Radio Systems, review each "Trunked Radio Systems (ST)" page to:
      1. Verify that red-links are correct
      2. If incorrect, then either correct or remove them.
      3. If individual TRS is deprecated and red-link indicates no Wiki-page exists, then remove red-link
      4. If red-link info has changed because system was renamed in DB, then post comprehensive list in Wiki-forum...
        1. so that effect of DB-renaming is made clearer
        2. to discuss/decide whether to maintain red-links from lists or remove them
