If you're feeling unsure on what you should do with your article, try answering these questions:

  • What does the article do well?
  • Is it missing any sources?
  • Do any of its sources seem unreliable and/or biased?
  • Is each fact referenced with an appropriate, reliable reference?
  • Does the article cover all of the major, important information?
  • Are there viewpoints that are overrepresented, or underrepresented?
  • Does the article maintain a neutral tone?
  • What is missing?

It's a good idea in general to review an article this way before adding or removing information. This way, you can ensure your actions will result in an improvement.

Also, make sure to work on major changes in your sandbox before posting them live on an article. This will give you a chance to see how it will appear and ensure that the content is accurate.

For more information on reviewing an article, look over the module on evaluating articles and sources again, as well as the brochure Evaluating Wikipedia.
