==Tasks==
 +
In this section, editors can list GargWiki pages according to the work that needs to be done on them. Editors can request pages anonymously or sign their comments by adding three tildes at the end: <nowiki>~~~</nowiki>
 +
 
 +
Editors are also encouraged to give a brief explanation as to why they have listed the page, and ideas for improvement.
 +
 
 +
===Requested pages===
 +
[[Special:Wantedpages]] contains an automatically-generated list of non-existent pages with the most incoming links, but users can also request pages to be created by listing them here.
 +
 
 +
*[[Dracon Family]] -- Does anyone else think New York's biggest crime syndicate deserves it's own page and category, or do you guys think the [[Tony Dracon]] and Organised crime pages pretty much cover everything relevent? -- [[User:Algernon|Algernon]] 08:01, 22 October 2009 (CDT)
 +
 
 +
*[[Gargoyle Way]] -- We hear this phrase a lot to mean a lot of different things. Maybe someday we can cook up a page talking about the gargoyle code (parenting, banishing, leader/second, all that) Mabe it could help split up the [[gargoyles]] page more, as I did when I made [[clan]]. -- [[User:Matt|Matt]] 16:44, 1 January 2008 (CST)
 +
 
 +
*[[Construction Worker]] -- Another recurring character without a page. Where there any others we have not done yet? -- [[User:Matt|Matt]] 17:15, 23 January 2008 (CST)
 +
:From Vendettas and Hunter's Moon 1. Any other appearances? -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]] 15:10, 1 February 2008 (CST)
 +
::Those are two different construction workers. --[[User:Greg Bishansky|GregX]] 18:47, 9 January 2009 (CST)
 +
:::Pages for both? Construction Workers A and B? -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]] 04:40, 5 December 2010 (CST)
 +
 
 +
* [[Executive Assistant]] -- [[Owen Burnett]], [[Preston Vogel]], [[Glasses]], [[Shari]], [[Robyn Correy]]... Not sure if this is a dumb idea or not, but I thought I'd put it out there for discussion. Feel free to totally reject this one. -- [[User:Matt|Matt]]
 +
 
 +
*[[Xanatos Tag]]
 +
:You mean the bit at the end of an episode where Xanatos reveals that he was behind everything that happened (assuming that wasn't already obvious) and points out how even though the gargoyles foiled his plan or apparent plan, it's all good because he learned something that will make him more awesome?  Does that really need its own entry or can we just cover it in the [[David Xanatos]] article? -- [[User:Demonskrye|Demonskrye]] 06:15, 10 July 2008 (CDT)
 +
::Yeah, one of them things. The problem with putting it in the Xanatos article itself is that Xanatos is an in-universe canon character, whereas the Xanatos tag is an out-of-universe production... thing. Besides, Thailog sometimes has his own "Xanatos tags" as well. -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]] 06:45, 10 July 2008 (CDT)
 +
::I think a "Behind the Scenes" section would cover it. And we could put an additional link to Xanatos in Thailog's Behind the Scenes section when talking about his penchant for similar speeches. -- [[User:Demonskrye|Demonskrye]] 07:28, 10 July 2008 (CDT)
 +
 
 +
*[[Space-Spawn War]] or [[Galactic War]]... something to describe the conflict between the Space-Spawn, the N'Kai and the unknown third race.
 +
:I think we should consult Greg to find out if he has a name for this war or at least a placeholder name. -- [[User:Matt|Matt]] 12:23, 12 October 2008 (CDT)
 +
::Good plan. I wonder if the involved races have different names for it? -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]]
 +
 
 +
*Since we now have articles for two unmade stories ("[[The Weird Macbeth]]" and "[[Hobgoblin of Little Minds]]"), how about a page for the [[multi-trickster story]] (about which we know quite a bit, but not the title). -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]] 04:40, 5 December 2010 (CST)
 +
 
 +
* I was just thinking.  We have aircraft and exo-frame pages.  Shouldn't we have one for weapons?  [[User:Dtaina|DTaina]] 21:46, 18 January 2009 (CST)
 +
 
 +
*[[Theseus]]: Even though he's barely mentioned in canon, I'm still kinda surprised that this page hasn't been created yet.  One of Greg Weisman's favorite characters, and there's more than one rambling dedicated to the guy ([http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=34], [http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=38], [http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=45], [http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=710]) . . . plus, he killed [[Taurus]]'s ancestor, the [[Minotaur]].  (Greg W. also has a caveat about introducing Theseus here [http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=5548], but I still think a page for him couldn't hurt) ;) -- [[User:Phoenician|Pheon]] 06:44, 6 December 2010 (CDT)
 +
 
 +
*[[Tiers and tentpoles]] - Just a thought. -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]] 15:28, 21 January 2011 (CST)
 +
 
 +
*The [[Disney Afternoon]]: with the latest boom of Disney Afternoon comics with, well, BOOM! Studios (as well as those ''Gargoyles'' easter eggs in the occasional issue), we could use the page . . . plus, [[Darkwing Duck]] already links to it ;) --[[User:Phoenician|Pheon]] 21:30, 26 March 2011 (CDT)
 +
 
 +
===Pages in need of expansion===
 +
[[Special:Shortpages]] contains an automatically-generated list of pages with the least information, but users can also list pages to be expanded here.
 +
 
 +
*[[Human]]s -- Talent for invention and technology. Make too much noise (and constantly modify their environment) to sense the biorhythms. Probably invented naming. History with a focus on their relations with other races. -- [[User:Vaevictis Asmadi|Vaevictis Asmadi]] 10:07, 24 December 2007 (CST)
 +
*[[Kenner Action Figures]]
 +
 
 +
===Requested images===
 +
Here, users can list articles that they believe could be improved by the inclusion of appropriate images.
 +
 
 +
*[[Ishimura Clan]] -- [[User:Matt|Matt]] has requested a collage of higher quality pics of all members seen in canon.
 +
 
 +
*[[London Street Thugs]] -- [[User:Griffinwyrm7|Griffinwyrm7]] has requested a picture of the London Street Thugs on their page.
 +
 
 +
*[[Hunters]] - Headshots of all known Hunters, per [[Talk:Hunters]].
 +
 
 +
*[[Columnadium]] doesn't have a pic.--[[User:PGFish|PGFish]] 15:03, 8 February 2009 (CST)
 +
:Yeah, there's a pan of it but I haven't finished it yet.  [[User:Dtaina|DTaina]] 01:44, 10 February 2009 (CST)
 +
 
 +
*[[Demona's Clan]] needs an updated picture (collage?) with new clan members shown in the TimeDancer comic arc. -- [[User:Litwolf|Litwolf]] 25 August 2009
 +
 
 +
*[[Sruighlea Cell]] doesn't have a picture yet.  --  [[User:Litwolf|Litwolf]] 27 August 2009
 +
 
 +
*[[Old Pog]] could use another pic of him not in his stone form, although this may require someone to donate a model sheet or a drawing not used in the comic. -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]] 10:22, 12 December 2010 (CST)
 +
 
 +
*This is an unusual one, does anybody have any better pics of "Gargoyle" from [[W.I.T.C.H.]]? The one I have isn't that great. Ideally I'd like one from season 2 where he got that new lava hand from Nerissa. --[[User:Algernon|Algernon]] 16:55, 13 August 2010 (CDT)
 +
 
 +
*A general thought, but it'd be awesome if we eventually found images for a lot of the old various merchandise, like the VHS's, books, and posters (even the ALA READ poster).  No doubt, there's probably a few dedicated editors taking on this endeavor, but I thought it couldn't hurt to add the post . . . for officialness-sake :) --[[User:Phoenician|Pheon]] 21:30, 26 March 2011 (CDT)
 +
 
 +
*Not sure if its something you might already have/in-the-works, DTaina, but I was thinking that a pan of the logo on [[Fortress-1]] (from "Awakening, Part Five" I think) would be nice for the [[Cyberbiotics]] page.  It might not be the official company logo for Cyberbiotics, but I think the page could use a cool pan :) --[[User:Phoenician|Pheon]] 10:09, 31 October 2011 (PDT)

*[[Rain of Death Spell]] -- [[User:Supermorff|Supermorff]] ([[User talk:Supermorff|talk]]) 12:50, 8 February 2020 (PST)
