Master list of priorities for the Morrissey-solo Wiki. If you have spare bandwidth to help edit any of the below please do. Suggestions for items to be worked on are welcome.

Recent Changes

  • Feb. 7, 2013: DT - Although most tasks are easy / cut and paste, I think it would be best to break up the cleanup in sections otherwise it will take longer as a lot of multitasking is involved. If you would like to take one of the sections below please update status below. I'll start with adding live history to all Morrissey songs. Let me know if you have any questions. Initial completed examples: This Charming Man (single), Jeane (song).

  • Feb. 2, 2013: DT - Appeared On is now also automated, see Hand In Glove and Suedehead. Tracklist data is still missing in some albums so that data also needs to be entered for the queries to be completely accurate. Adding this to the song pages as part of the cleanup, I'll work on the songs when I have some time but if feel free to help, it's pretty simple data entry but can get a bit tedious.
  • Jan. 26, 2013: DT - Semantic MediaWiki is up and running, see the Live History section of the songs Hand In Glove and Suedehead. Now to add them to the rest of the songs, let me know if you want to help. Also while we're at it, do some cleanup of the song pages.
