For experienced editors:

  • Add citations:
  • Work on pages that may not meet Wikipedia’s notability guidelines.
    • Please help to establish notability by citing reliable secondary sourcesthat are independent of the topic and provide significant coverage of it beyond a mere trivial mention. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be mergedredirected, or deleted. This is a task well suited to more experienced editors, as you will need to determine whether or not this article would pass Wikipedia’s notability guidelines and then do the due diligence of adding additional text and citations to make the article stick.
