Welcome to the Combine OverWiki Official Projects page! Here the administration lists wiki wide projects that need to be done in order to improve the current state of the wiki. These projects have different scopes, from simply improving articles and images to tweaking the wiki's design.

Feel free to have a look at our pending projects, and how you can help complete them. As a side note, it is recommended to any user, old or new, to get fully acquainted with the Manual of Style and Layout Guide before starting any deep editing.

Current Projects

Cleanup Project

status: pending completion

Many articles and images need clean up. See the separate project page for more information.

Quotes Project

status: pending completion

Many Quote articles need clean up. See the separate project page for more information.

Past Projects

Portal Project

status: ended September 8, 2017

The wiki's Portal Project was launched in May 2011 to improve articles related to Portal, its sequel, and its ties with the Half-Life continuity, as a specialized Cleanup Project. Following Portal 2's release, many Safe, Good or Featured articles ceased to fill their status requirements, and have been downgraded to "For clean up". The project ended after its usefulness in organizing and overseeing contributions related to Portal was deemed low.

Achievements Project

status: completed 2015

Aimed at properly adding all Achievements in the related articles, as tables with their own subsections.

Template Glitch Fix Project

status: completed December 8, 2010

Due to the new Wikia skin, many templates all over the wiki are glitched on browsers such as Firefox in ways that stretch them extremely lengthwise and make them unreadable. In order to fix this problem, the code float:left; width: 660px; needs to be added to the style for some of them. Most of the templates that need this are sysop edit only so this could be considered just an administration project.

Category:Article management tags is the main source of templates that need fixing.

No More Orphaned Images Project

status: completed September 29, 2009

Currently, the Unused Files page has a lot of images on it. These images could easily be added to many pages on the site to greatly improve the information of any particular article. Some can be put directly in the article, and others can make use of the "gallery" feature to provide the most images per page. To learn how to use the Gallery function, check out the Image Help page for an explanation. If you come across an image that seems to not fit our standards of quality or is a duplicate of an existing article, flag it with the deletion template ({{Deletion}}) and a sysop or bureaucrat will check into the possibility of deleting the image.

Note: Some images are linked to articles via the use of links like [[:File:Image.jpg]]. Due to the coding of the wiki, these images will appear to be unused when they actually are. Please check the "What Links Here" function to make sure that the image actually doesn't link anywhere before flagging it for deletion.

No More Non Half-Life Universe Games Project

status: completed July 21, 2009

Overtime, all articles unrelated to the Half-Life and Portal universe will be removed, since they are better covered on specialized wikis, such as the Team Fortress, Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat and Left 4 Dead ones. In that way Combine OverWiki editors can concentrate on Half-Life related subjects only, which will greatly improve their coverage. Related images will also be removed.
