One-time tasks

  • Katjo Mencanto - Stub articles: I am working on checking all stub articles to see if they can be "unstubbified" -- that is, if information can be added to fill out their descriptions.  I am focusing on those articles that are stubs because there are graphics in the area normally filled by text (but no text).  I will expand to the actual data-less stubs as I go along.
