To do
Dave Lampert, (David Lee Lampert?) sex toy pioneer, recently became independently notable following his death[1][2][3][4]
Work in progress
look at KnotInfo stuff, and in particular why their Alexander polynomials seem to be a factor t different from everyone else's
Answer from the article: "Since this is only unique up to multiplication by the Laurent monomial
, one often fixes a particular unique form"
Fix up remainder of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/2020_COVID-19_pandemic
Finish cleanup of redirects etc. for ΔT (disambiguation)
Fix up Ettrick (village), Wisconsin and Ettrick (town), Wisconsin to go back to previous conventions, with suitable hatnotes so this does not happen again. Also mirror this with ‎Trempealeau, Wisconsin.
Take a look at Doncram's Paleontology in South Dakota#Protected areas.

Geodata to-do
Quality control
Remove {{coord missing}} tags from articles with OS coordinates: (PetScan)
Remove {{coord missing}} tags from articles with {{coord}} tags (PetScan)

Harvest unused lat/long data from {{infobox settlement}}, and replace with {{coord}}: see here for monitoring script.
Not many articles have this, so this is likely to affect a couple of hundred of articles at most. Still, every little helps.

Total is over 27,000 possibles: even doing a fraction of these would make a big dent in the backlog.

AI scenarios
From http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/logic-ai/ , the following list of AI/logic problem scenarios:
The Baby Scenario, the Bus Ride Scenario, the Chess Board Scenario, the Ferryboat Connection Scenario, the Furniture Assembly Scenario, the Hiding Turkey Scenario, the Kitchen Sink Scenario, the Russian Turkey Scenario, the Stanford Murder Mystery, the Stockholm Delivery Scenario, the Stolen Car Scenario, the Stuffy Room Scenario, the Ticketed Car Scenario, the Walking Turkey Scenario, and the Yale Shooting Anomaly.
We should have articles on all of these that meet the notability criteria. -- The Anome (talk) 15:10, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Given it's been over two years since this suggestion and that there is still an article on the Yale Shooting Anomaly by that name, it seems fair for you to go ahead and create them. Unless you already tried and were prevented. In which case it might be helpful to state why, here on on a page linked from here. Fallacies and dilemmas and toy problems from AI do seem to be important enough to report, certainly more so than every minor character from The Simpsons. Though perhaps some of these have acquired other names since that article you cite? In which case you might consider redirects from all those names. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) at 19:22, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
