This is a guide of what to work on in Codex Gamicus. This page is used to indicate what needs to be fixed, as well as point out any maintenance issues.

Task Relevant page
Article Creation/Improvement
Add infoboxes to articles Category:Articles that need an Infobox
Add images to articles. Category:GameInfobox articles without an image
Expand stubs Category:Stubs
Add missing images. These are almost exclusively Wikipedia imports that have not yet been cleaned up. Category:Pages with broken file links
Cleanup
Update obsolete arguments for {{GameInfobox}}. Common offenders are the old dev, pub and platform arguments. Possibly indicative of a Wikipedia import that hasn't yet been cleaned up. Category:Articles that use obsolete variables
Fix duplicate arguments. (that is, where an argument has been given twice) Pages are added to this category by the MediaWiki software; pages cannot be removed from this category manually. Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls
Fix reference errors. These are almost exclusively Wikipedia imports that have not yet been cleaned up. Pages are added to this category by the MediaWiki software; pages cannot be removed from this category manually. Category:Pages with reference errors
Categories
Tag deprecated categories, so they can be deleted when empty. A large number of pages contained in these categories are Wikipedia imports that have not yet been cleaned up.
Remove deprecated categories. All categories are added by {{GameInfobox}} or relevant maintenance templates, so it is not necessary to add any further categories. Please do not do this unless the page has been rewritten or significantly reworked, otherwise it will make it harder to identify content that is not original.
Create wanted categories. Special:WantedCategories
Templates
Create and expand documentation pages.
Tag deprecated templates, so articles that use them can be migrated to more recent templates. A large number of pages contained in these categories are either Wikipedia imports that have not yet been cleaned up, or early on-wiki Infobox templates.
