ComicBook.Teen Titans has a lot of editorializing and need a significant overhaul.

Dune's work page description talks main about the film's Troubled Production history but mentions absolutely nothing about the film's plot.

I'm not a good wiki editor here, but two pages are in desperate need of improvement and fixing.

The Exalted page description needs a trimming bad - it's painfully long. Anyone here more familiar with the game than me who can take a whack at it?

Tarzan and Jane needs some rewriting, as right now it's mostly just one large Wall of Text description.

I think Yentl's work page description goes a bit into too much detail and might wanna be rewritten or trimmed a bit.

I think we've found a major contender for "description most like a sales pitch" award in the form of Rama. Anyone disagree that it needs a heavy rewrite?

I just axed a bunch of text in Jason Griffith that focused on how devise he was as the voice of Sonic (to the exclusion of talking about the rest of his career).

Stargate Infinity needs a new description. Its current description is mostly about how inconsistent it is with its parent shows in the Stargate-verse.

EDIT: Went ahead and gave it a shot myself. I'm not familiar with Infinity, but I think I was able to piece enough together from different sources to give it a decent description.

ComicBook.Tuskegee Heirs has no description, just a trope / some tropes.

And no wicks to it.

It's also more than a year old. 3 edits, including mine?

Hector and the Search for Happiness doesn't really have a work page descriptions. Just a mention of some of the actors that are in the film and the fact that it is based on a novel.

VideoGame.Star Fox 2 focuses a bit to much on its unique release history (which is admittedly important) in leau of actually talking about the game.

I'm having trouble writing a good description of PGA Tour, can anyone chime in?

LightNovel.Beyond The Boundary's description doesn't explain what Yomu are, or anything?

From what Wikipedia says, It seems like Spirit Hunters hunt Yomu, because they're visible to them, but Invisible to Normals, and do so to protect the normals.

Yomu are manifestations of negative human emotion, that... can do something? Possess people?

How are human-Yomu hybrids possible? Are some Yomu, sapient?

The entire first paragraph of Code Lyoko: Evolution was written before the series premiered, six years ago.

I know nothing about this show, so I can't be the one to rewrite it.

From Pokémon Sweets Version:

Pokémon Sweets Version is a ROM Hack from Pokémon FireRed.

To put it this way, about everything in the entire game is a Level Ate.

That’s it. That’s the entire description. Definitely could use some actual information if anyone here is familiar with the work.

Bringing this over from the Removing complaining, bashing and other negativity from the wiki thread. The description for Ghost Whisperer is written in such a way that it bashes the show it's describing.

The first paragraph, for context sake

Ghost Whisperer is an American TV show that ran from 2005 through 2010. It's also known as that show where Jennifer Love Hewitt traipses around in vintage clothing, often low-cut. The episodes follow a formula: Ghost makes its presence known, Melinda flutters about trying to help, Melinda helps the ghost with its business, everyone cries, ghost goes into The Light. The few instances where that doesn't happen involves the ancient spirits that inhabit Grandview, Melinda's town, and some prophecy involving Melinda and her abilities.

It also has a list of characters in the description, which seems unnecessary since there's also a characters page.

You know how in "Eragon" everyone cries 'a single tear'? Yeah, just TRY that in "One Piece" and see if it works. - Formerly Narm Charm

The description of Plan 9 from Outer Space describes the whole plot and ends with a bunch of 1-2 sentence paragraphs with random trivia about the film, and Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun says nothing about the manga's plot.

James Byron Huggins has a severely anemic description. No list of works, no biography, just a simple "X is a Y" sentence.

Removed some lines from Creator.Kaneko. Opinions?

As comfortable as I am with helping spruce up I Love Money on my own, I need help so I can have outside perspectives on the goings-on of I Love Moneys 1, 2, and 4. My biggest issue is a lot of trope examples are far too minimal for their own good, and I have obvious skill problems with how to handle spoiler-y details. I'll gladly lurk more, so I can get a better grasp of how to handle spoilers.

Creator.Koei Tecmo currently has a bunch of Footnote Fever that I find hard to read. (I had just moved the page from Creator.Koei by the way.)

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian's description is just a "imagine yourself in this role" description that doesn't actually describe the book very well.
