This is a list of projects that need to be done on the Ace Attorney Wiki. If you see another project that needs doing, please add it. If you have accomplished a task, please remove it.

General maintenanceEdit

This page contains a list of maintenance reports that you may find helpful for finding ways to improve this wiki.

Article expansionEdit

A good number of pages need to be expanded. See Category:Article stubs and Category:Articles in need of expansion for articles in need of of expansion.

Orphaned pagesEdit

Some pages on the wiki have no other articles linking to them, making it difficult for people to notice them. They can be found here. Mostly, they are disambiguation pages that, at the moment, we don't have a suitable way to link to.

CasesEdit

Many of the episode articles need to be expanded.

The following articles are significantly done, but still need to be completed. Completion figures are rough estimates based on the proportion of chapters accounted for. (For the Dai Gyakuten Saiban articles, this YouTube channel has the entire game translated in English.)

Many episode articles are lacking in images.

Please see completed articles, such as Turnabout Sisters, for reference.

TranscriptsEdit

Transcripts of the games' text is also in progress. Suggestions for improving the prototype (The First Turnabout - Transcript) are welcomed (particularly from someone with HTML knowledge). Creating a transcript itself is a difficult and time-consuming task, so think carefully before starting one.

The following articles do not have started or completed transcripts. (Although the Gyakuten Kenji 2 and Dai Gyakuten Saiban articles are only in Japanese, assuming that the translations are accurate, we can build transcripts for them from their English fan-translations.)

CharactersEdit

Many character articles (particularly characters in Gyakuten Kenji 2, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice) need to be expanded.

Please remember to categorize character pages and use Template:Character to create an InfoBox at the top of the page. Categories should be written as: "[[Category:Characters|Last name, first name]]" (characters with, as yet, only Japanese names should instead be written as "[[Category:Characters|!Last name, first name]]").

Characters should be categorized into "Characters" as well as any other character subcategory that is relevant, as well as for the games in which they appear.

The categories themselves should be ordered in the following manner: Characters, Birth decade, Gender, Occupations, "Situational" and gameplay-centric categories (defendants, villains, partners, etc.), Appearances (firstly by Ace Attorney games in release order, then Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, then Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, then other appearances (manga, musicals, etc.). Other than appearances, all other categories should arranged in in alphabetical order.

Please note that for the Deceased characters and Police officers categories, if a subcategory of those categories is used, the category itself shouldn't be added (e.g. since Cindy Stone is a "Victim", the "Deceased characters" category shouldn't be added as well).

The following articles have no biography, or very little description:

Many other character articles are stubs and can be found here.

Please see completed articles, such as Maya Fey, for reference.

Evidence and profile listsEdit

Lists of evidence and profiles as they appear in the court record or organizer are in progress. See List of Evidence in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and List of Profiles in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations for reference.

  • Evidence lists
  • Court record profile lists

Games and other mediaEdit

Crossover gamesEdit

Miscellaneous gamesEdit

The following minor games have very little information on them:

RemakesEdit

Any changes (e.g., typo and error corrections) made to the iOS port or the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy HD remake could be noted in suitable places (such as case articles).

Other mediaEdit

Articles on AA media other than the main franchise games is lacking. The following require more information on them:

ImagesEdit

WhitespaceEdit

Various images and official artwork on this wiki contain whitespace, which now look a little off due to the change in wiki background. If you can remove the whitespace in an image by adding transparency channels, please do so by uploading a newer version, rather than uploading a brand-new image.

JPG to PNGEdit

Images of the JPG/JPEG format have a lossy compression, that is, the image suffers a loss in quality and information each time it's saved. JPG also does not allow the adding of alpha channels (transparency), which conflicts with the previously-mentioned whitespace issue. Although there are images on the wiki that are fine to be in the JPG (or even GIF) format (such as in-game cutscene images or stills), others would be better suited to PNG (such as official art). A good general rule is that if the image is going to be prominently visible (i.e., as the image in a character infobox), then PNG would probably be better. If you find such JPG images, please convert them into PNG by uploading a new version with the same image description as the old one, and then replacing the contents of the previous image with {{delete}}.

Japanese version imagesEdit

Images from the Japanese versions of games should be replaced with their English counterparts where appropriate. Many of the images in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney and Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, as seen in the image archives of Court Records, are from Japanese versions of the games. This means that editors who seek to replace the images will probably have to retake the images themselves.

Official Art and Concept Art Edit

There are quite a few characters that are missing concept art (mainly SoJ characters) and good quality official art. Getting these would put these pages on par with other pages.

InfoBox contentEdit

In general, the "InfoBox" content in many articles may need to be updated to include links to recently-made pages. In particular, many location articles have been made recently and other pages referring to these locations need to have links to them.

We are discussing the design of some of the infobox templates on this wiki. Anyone who's interested can discuss this subject here.

MusicEdit

More AA series music could be uploaded and added in a logical way to the wiki (either by creating pages on the individual track itself like so, or by added it in a gallery to a suitable page like so.

Places and organizationsEdit

Many articles about places and organizations need to be expanded.

Please remember to categorize and use Template:Place (for both places and organizations). Places should be categorized into Category:Areas, Category:Corporations, Category:Countries, Category:Locations, Category:Organizations, or Category:Unvisited locations as appropriate (the places category page has more information on what each category is for). Places should also be categorized into the games in which they appear (firstly by Ace Attorney games in release order, then Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, then Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, then other appearances (manga, musicals, etc.).

Many of the aforementioned articles are stubs and can be found here.

Please see completed articles, such as Fey clan, for reference.

Voice castEdit

The voice cast article needs to be completed, especially for more recently-released games and other media. When adding VAs, please try to back it up with a source. It should be noted that working out the voice cast for Ace Attorney game can often be tricky due to VAs not being credited in game credits.
