Some of the Metal Gear Wiki's articles may be poorly written, not look nice, or have many grammatical errors. However, these articles can be fixed by having a cleanup.

What is a cleanup?

A cleanup is exactly what the name says. It is a a method of cleaning up an article so that its quality will improve. Pages which look messy, having many grammatical errors, or which are poorly written can be listed as requiring a cleanup. Users will see that these pages are in need of assistance and will work on them to improve them.

Marking articles for cleanup

When you've found a page that requires a cleanup, you can then add the cleanup template. At the top of the page, simply add {{cleanup}}. Doing so will create this template at the top of the page:

"A clean slate. A new name, new memories. Choose your own legacy. It's for you to decide"Solid Snake
This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of quality. Please edit this page to improve it. Feel free to discuss this cleanup on the article's talk page.

You can also add the page to the cleanup category by adding [[Category:Cleanup]] at the bottom of the page. If the article is very large, then it might be a good choice to mention of the article's talk page that it is in need of a cleanup and explain why.
