This page is one of Battlestar Wiki's many projects.
This page serves to coordinate discussion on a particular aspect of this Wiki. The formal recommendations of a project may be treated as policies.

Tasks are compiled by the Task Bot. When something is finished in a "Task List" it is moved to a new section or removed depending on how far the task is completed. Below is what certain things mean.

What are tasks?

Tasks are simply improvements to certain pages that need to be completed. The Task Bot makes it simple by formating them in the list below by categorizing each of the articles found in certain categories. You can view the categories that the Task Bot reviews by visiting the Task Bot user page.

Full Task List

These are the current tasks that have been gathered by the Task Bot. This list is updated every 12 hours.

These are just items found by the task bot, but there are other pages and items to look at that are not indexed by the bot.

Information on 'How You Can Help'

These give a brief overview on what each section means and what could be done about it.
