Created UserInfo box template -DONE- I noticed users were using the RecurringCharacters template for their own pages, with the "Actor" and "Episodes" fields that don't really apply to users/editors of this site. Thought it would be a good idea to make a different template.


References list/footnoting -DONE- created a template to clean-up the issue of overly used large footnotes inline with page content (you should've seen Alastair's page prior to). On several pages it made for very hard reading, breaking paragraph format harshly. With the admins' blessing of updating the wiki, we were able to implement references lists with automatic numbering.


Redundant Links -ONGOING- per standardized Wikipedia Manual of Style, I've been trying to go through and trim superfluous links from pages. I've been finding pages linked back to themselves (i.e., the word "impala" set as a link on the Impala page) and/or the same word linked multiple times in the same article (upwards of a dozen times in some cases). Removing redundant links also helps keep file sizes down, especially important on larger/longer pages.
