Project Clean-Up is dedicated cleaning up a lot of extra things lying around, including: unused files, unused redirects, categories/templates, and miscellaneous other formatting. In addition, it seeks to have the Unused, Categorize, Images, Outdated, Moves, Merges, and Wanted sections on the To-do list cleared of a majority to all of its entries (though clearing all sections would be just as good).

Anyone willing to help is more than welcome to. Many files could be integrated into galleries and articles. Other files may simply be outdated duplicates to be deleted.

This page will be updated with new content frequently.

How can I help?[edit]

Start by looking at a section below, reading through written notes. Once any links have been resolved, please remove them from this page. You have my full permission to edit this page.

For images: If they can seemingly be used, open up appropriate pages (galleries, characters, subjects, etc) to check if a similar image is being used or not. If so, determine the higher quality version and delete the alternative. If there is not a similar version used, add it to the page! This is also a good way to check images to make sure they are properly licensed and cateogorized.

For pages to be moved: Follow the instructions in the move or merge box and rewrite accordingly.

For the uncategorized: ...add the appropriate category. If you're unsure of what to add, use Special:AllPages and change the search parameter from (All) to Category: and try to find good fits. Things can also use more than one category!

For unused redirects: Correct all links on pages then flag for deletion. Make sure to confirm with 'What Links Here' for ALL uses.

What do all the symbols mean?[edit]

Images of certain bad qualities are tagged with different punctuation marks as follows:

Symbol Meaning
$ File has the wrong name (IE Tom Nool.png)
@ File name or content is in the wrong language
% File is protected
~ Image needs licensing

Unused work[edit]

Comprised of unused content. If files make sense to be used somewhere, add them to the page! If a better alternate is available, or is a duplicate, delete the lower quality version. Either way, when a file is addressed, remove it from the list.

Example images and seasonal banners[edit]

the four examples could possibly be deleted. a 'not unused' template should likely be made for the others.

Uncategorized categories[edit]

Inception level

Uncategorized files[edit]

'Era' is used instead of specific games to both cover multiple games per system, but also to catch files that are related to a console but are not in-game, such as an ad or an image of the console.


This is essentially the catch-all. Some don't fit into a specific game or era.

Gamecube era and prior[edit]

DS era[edit]

this seems suspiciously small. there may be a lot in miscellaneous.

Wii era[edit]

3DS era[edit]

Switch and mobile[edit]

File Conversions[edit]

Convert to PNG and optimize, use the files if they are not used.

Images tagged with Template:No license[edit]

...there's no category for these?

Wanted work[edit]

Different things below are wanted sections. For pages, templates, or categories, consider creating the page, making a redirect, or directly fixing a link to something if it already exists. While I could not easily keep the links to all of the usages as found in 'What Links here', I thought the amount may be helpful for users depending on the type of work they'd like to do here (fix a lot of smalls or fix one really big).


Some of these might just be capitalization errors and should be fixed directly on the page


Also mostly comprised of errors but also a lot of UBs. Maybe there should be a combined 'Fan of' template with a variable instead? (IE Template:FanOf|Tom Nook)

Pages and files[edit]

These are lumped together. Most likely, pages will need a page written or a redirect and files will need to be replaced with the new link from a redirectless move. In order to save space, all of the pages have been hidden in a div which can be opened with the link on the far right.

more coming soon. this is here to preserve spacing.

Redirect Work[edit]

Redirects here should be manually replaced to link to the destination or to use inline redirects (ie [[Actual link|name used]]).

File redirects[edit]

Directly replace these on the used pages, then delete them.

Page-Linkage Work[edit]

Orphaned pages[edit]

These pages don't link to other places

Dead-end pages[edit]

These pages need to link somewhere else

Stubs work[edit]

Not to impede much on writing projects, these 10 (non-disambiguous) pages are the smallest of the smallest and should be improved as much as possible.

Oldest pages[edit]

List contains pages that haven't been edited in at least 2 years. While not guaranteed, usually the older a page lasts without edits the more improvements or changes that can be made. Disambig pages were excluded.

Real World Images CC improvements[edit]

Many of these are unlicensed, unsourced (a requirement under CC), or incorrectly licensed. While I started fixing the category early 2020 I never finished it...until now, hopefully. Make sure all images contain the correct Creative Commons license, a linked source, and all stand image formatting. If you can't find the original source, find a new suitable version (suggestion: wikimedia commons) and re-upload it FROM SCRATCH. The old file must be completely deleted. I haven't checked all of these, so some of them may already be ok and can be deleted. Some of these may be listed as public domain, but are actually not public domain (since I have found them on wikimedia commons as well), and they should double checked too. May also be a good time to standardize these file names, wink wink.
