    Non-categorized worklists[edit]

    Wikipedia:Today's articles for improvement – the granddaddy of them all!

    One of the things I like to do is scan Category:CS1 errors and Category:CS1 maintenance categories for what are usually small edits that are quick and easy to do. The backlog of these errors seems to be enormous, so I'll never finish. And pages with these sorts of errors frequently have other opportunities for improvement. Having a ready source of quick edits allows me to make more frequent contributions in contrast with the bigger tasks that sometimes seem to take a week or more for me to do. Also helps with WikiDiversification.
