From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

During my first few years editing Wikipedia (2004-2006) I did a bunch of maintenance.


I've removed a lot of pages from Wikipedia:Cleanup - I'm working from oldest to newest, and am up to Wikipedia:Cleanup/Leftovers#Oldest as of 29 March 2005 (UTC). Here are those pages I've removed after fixing their listed problems:

  1. Power beaming - technology concept
  2. Júbilo Iwata - J. League team
  3. Alan Blunt - fictional character. Also Alex Rider.
  4. Ben Goodger - programmer
  5. Julio Dam - Messianic Jew (now deleted)
  6. Geodesy for the layman - moved to Wikibooks
  7. Church rank
  8. Paul Collyer - redirect to Championship Manager
  9. Morios - moved to Moria (tree)
  10. Gear ratio
  11. David Hestenes (notable physics teacher)
  12. Helbreath (MMORPG)
  13. Garden designer (turned into a redirect)
  14. Possible crisis in Western publishing (now deleted)
  15. Hamid Etemad - professor of international business
  16. Drizzt Do'Urden - famous drow from Forgotten Realms
  17. Daniel Dumile - hip hop MC
