If you find a page that needs help from other editors or from Grand Theft Wiki:Staff, add a cleanup template to alert other users that help is needed.

A full list of templates is at - Category:Cleanup Templates. See more information on our cleanup policy at Grand Theft Wiki:Cleanup

Small Side Notices

These notices appear to the side of the article, allowing it to be used part-way through without being a major distraction.

Template Description Category

{{arrange}} Arrange - This article is confusing and difficult to read. Often just lots of unorganised paragraphs. It needs organising, rearranging, and probably rewriting. Cleanup Needed

Inline Notices

These templates add a small notice in-line with text, such as [Citation Needed]

{{fact}} Citation Needed - Evidence is needed for this fact or claim, so find the source/proof and add a reference, or remove the claim. Verification Needed
{{?}} Is this right? - Find evidence or reword to be more accurate. Verification Needed
Explanation Needed
{{Explain}} Explanation Needed - This is unclear, please explain this in a better way. Verification Needed

Cleanup Categories

Each cleanup template adds the page into one or more of the following cleanup categories. Please use a cleanup template rather than directly adding the category.

We use these categories so that editors interested in certain tasks can easily find articles that they might like to work on.

See Category:Cleanup for all cleanup-related articles and categories, and see Tasks for jobs you can do to help out around the wiki.
