Lostpedia:Job List


At Lostpedia, we thrive due to our community spirit and peer editing, so much so that we have arguably become one of the most successful Lost websites on the net. In order to ever perfect the site, we use templates such as {{rewrite}} or {{cleanup}}. However, it is difficult to keep track of all of these functions, and so this page is an attempt to clarify the topics, and act as a portal for users to then check each area and contribute.

Below is a list of jobs which anyone is invited to get involved in. Thank you for all your hardwork at Lostpedia, and we hope this page will continue to raise the bar on our standard.

This page lists general jobs that will always be ongoing at Lostpedia. For specific tasks involving editing particular articles, see our Active Projects page.
