Counter systemic bias by creating new articles on missing important female scientists.

Improve popular low quality articles (top 5,000 articles by pageviews with low ORES article class predictions.)

Other helpful tasks include, fixing vandalism, welcoming newcomers, link recovery, categorization, and numerous behind the scenes tasks like moving free images to PhysicsWiki Commons. See PhysicsWiki:Maintenance for more maintenance tasks.

New page patrolling

The primary purposes of new page patrolling are to identify articles which do not meet the criteria for inclusion and/or to tag them for any glaring issues that need attention. Most critical are copyright violations and defamatory material about living persons.

Portal report

The following portals are in need of attention/upkeep:

  • Portal:Space – the selected article excerpts were copy and pasted between 2006 and 2009. The leads of the corresponding articles have greatly improved since then.
  • Portal:Thinking – "selected" sections need new material. Been the same for years.

The following portals have interesting design features that you may find useful:

  • Portal:Philosophy – cycles through 52 "Selected philosophers", one per week, automatically year after year.
  • Portal:Arts – uses random generators to display random featured status selections.

Discussions and collaborations
