> I there is simpler way to solicit these reports this without all the false positives that might come from a "report a problem"  link.  I imagine that all these people who have issues must click on the "Help" link in the sidebar while looking contact information. Why not have a banner on that page saying "If you have a problem with information about yourself that is on Wikipedia report it here."  And send it to a specific email address.

I mooted this on [[Help talk:Contents]] yesterday morning, Quiddity
made some suggestions (and we both tweaked the page text somewhat) and
I've just put a banner on the page:


I've tightened up the article problem page, per Strunk & White ("Omit
needless words."):


The final page for people who have a crappy article about themselves
still needs severe tightening and organisation, though with a mind to
not causing trouble for OTRS volunteers, who after all are the ones
getting the crapflood. Could an OTRS BLP queue handler please have a
go at giving that page a severe Strunk & Whitening?
