Aligotarian (5e Race) Grammatical issues throughout.
Biomage (3.5e Class) Formatting and wording needs some work.

Black Blooded (5e Class) Terminology needs much improvement.
Black Knight (5e Class) Grammar, terminology, and syntax need much improvement.
Blade Master (5e Class) Many class features are unclear, have round counting, have once a turn wording, have negative ability scores, have the once before doing a long rest wording, or other errors. See Class Do's and Don'ts (5e Guideline).
Blood Mage 1.5 Variant This class uses features with x times per day wording, and has several unclear features(some don't say how long they last, others don't say how they are activated). This class also mentions free actions which don't exist in 5e.
Book of Tech (3.5e Sourcebook)wip its sub-pages have severe grammar and spelling issues.
Book of Time (5e Equipment) This item has round counting and should not use the once per day wording.
Boon of True Primality (5e Epic Boon) Please use the correct 5e terminology as well as SRD references. "Strength" not "Strength". "Rage Damage" not "bonus damage to Attacks that use Strength while raging".
Boon of War (5e Epic Boon) See talk.
Brawler (5e Class) Grammar needs improvement. In particular, the page should be gone through and proper nouns, headers, and the beginnings of sentences need to be capitalized.
Brood Mother (5e Race) This race has several traits that are unclear or use improper terms. See Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize as well.
Celestial Hunter (5e Class) Writing, terminology and mechanics are all rough.
Celt (5e Race) General cleanup.
Changeling (alternative)(5e Race) Wording is a bit wonky in places, and terminology needs correcting ("All player stats"?)
Chaos (3.5e Deity) Poorly written. An overdeity that appears a dozen times per day (given a mere 1000 followers praying daily) to reverse gravity for an hour? Wuh? OP possibly misunderstands what an overdeity is supposed to be.
Chronarch, Timelord (3.5e Race) Needs a lil' spruce up with capitalisation an' whatnot
Complete Werewolf Overhaul (3.5 template variant) I understand this is a WIP, but please take care with your terminology ("mental attributes"?)
Cranes (4e Race) Stories and descriptions need better wording.
Crusader (5e Class) This class has numerous typos, punctuation, and capitalization errors. The class also uses terms like once every long or short rest, and has many features with unclear wording.
Cryomancer 2.0 (5e Class) There are still numerous grammatical errors, see Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize.
Crystalics (3.5e Race) Grammar needs work.
Cubi (3.5e Class) "balanced Tire 3 class."? This is full of typos. Spell list is messy and doesn't adequately explain where the spells can be found.
Cursed blade (5e Equipment) Spelling and grammar need improving.
Cyborgs (3.5e Race) Spelling and grammar needs a lot of work.
Dark Knight, Variant (3.5e Prestige Class) The wording on the class features is a bit ropy.

Death Knight (5e Class) Spelling, grammar, and terminology need much improvement.
Death Knight Minions (4e Creature) Spelling, grammar and formatting needs improving.
Demiplanic orb (5e Equipment) Please have a look at spells in the PHB to see if any could be used. 5e SRD:Demiplane springs to mind.
Demon Brawler (3.5e Class) Grammar and terminology need much improvement.
Devas (5e Race) Many word choices and phrases are not in par with 5e SRD.
Disco Knight (3.5e Class) Some spelling errors.
Dragon (5e Race) Some outdated language; for example, special abilities aren't classified as extraordinary or supernatural abilities in 5th edition. Additionally, 5e races should be written in second person, i.e. describing or addressing "you", not "the dragon" or "the player".
Dragon Eater (3.5e Class) Grammar and spelling needs improving. Still mentions god devouring in the lead sentence and in other places from a hasty cut-and-paste.
Dragon Warrior (3.5e Class) Formatting and grammar need improving
Elemental Adept (5e Class) Grammar needs improving, many traits need rewording

Faster (3.5e Template) Very strangely worded.
Fey struck (Pathfinder Race) Spelling and grammar need improving. Do fey see them glow, or do they glow because they are part fey?
Fornraeth (3.5e Race) Grammar needs some work.
Free-Runner (3.5e Class) Needs wikilinks, the bonus feats for example.
Frieza Clan (5e Race) Grammar would benefit from some revision. Of note is that many improper nouns are capitalized (e.g., "Race" and "Purple"). Race names themselves are also generally not capitalized, though the face "Frieza" is the name of an individual, "Frieza clan" might be the best capitalization for this race.
Genovesan (5e Class) This class has numerous grammatical errors and unclear features.
Gestalt /Warrior generic class (3.5e Optimized Character Build) There's no need to shout.
Grave Knight Needs to be more careful with wording. For example Empower's "ability used" reads like it works with ability checks. Also missing a summary
Gravity Knight (5e Class) Terminology needs improving (e.g. "successful melee strike" should be "when you hit with a melee weapon attack"; 5e doesn't have "Standard Actions" or a "staggered" condition; "Str save" should be "Strength saving throw", etc)
Gwlithenni (3.5e Race) See talk page, pronunciation needs clarifying
Half-Basilisk (5e Race) Grammar needs improving.
Half-Slime (3.5e Race) Grammar, terminology need improving. x0 template and categories need finishing for indexing purposes
Half-Time Lord (3.5e Race) Description is not great, particularly religion (if you are shoehorning a sci-fi race into a D&D, then they must be adapted to account for a world in which deities objectively exist)
Hand of The God (3.5e Spell) Grammar needs improving.
Harpie (3.5e Race) Wording needs some work. Confusingly similar to a harpy.
Helmet of Fate (5e Equipment) This item has round counting, and shouldn't use the every short rest wording.
Holy Kick (3.5e Maneuver) Wording needs improving.
Incarnated Barrier of the Void (5e Equipment) This armor has numerous capatilization errors and unclear effects. The "once per long rest" wording should not be used. Instead, the armor should say something akin to "this armor regains use of this effect at dawn".
Incorporeal Skeleton (5e Creature) Is this "Incorporeal Skeleton" or "Tormented Soul"?
Infinium, Gun Mage (3.5e Class) Riddled with grammatical errors and poor terminology
Jackal Mask (Variant) (5e Equipment) Effects are recovered after a certain amount of time, for example at dawn/dusk and shouldn't use the per long rest wording. Also see Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize.
Karnit (5e Race) Grammar, terminology and formatting all need attention.
Kataima Incarnate Grammar and terminology need improving. Ability modifiers themselves don't change, as they're just another aspect of the ability score, and it's getting into the stacking that 5e tries to remove: You probably want this to be advantage on Strength checks or something. What is a "great maul", is a homebrew weapon or just a maul? This is all over the place.
Klyntar Host (5e Class) Some odd grammar makes some of these features difficult to follow
Knight, Teoryran (3.5e Class) Does not read through well.
Krayak (Pathfinder Environment) the one sentence in the grammar error box has grammar errors

Languages (3.5e Other) Formatting, spelling, and grammar need overhauling.
Loose Limbs (3.5e Variant Rule) Grammar needs improving
Lupox (5e Race) Number of grammatical errors throughout.
MagicMystic (3.5e Class) Bizarre wording. What does "You have access to all the spells to the grade that equals your intelligence modifier" mean, for example?
Magic and Magic Items (City-States In Chaos Supplement) Prose needs some work
Magician Overlord (5e Class) This class has numerous unclear features. See Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize as well.
Master of the Sword (5e Class) Nouns that are not proper nouns should not be capitalized ("human", "master of the sword", etc). Headers should not be in bold, and should not be all-caps.
Megalosaurasapians (5e Race)
Mind Field (5e Class) A lot of this is hard to follow. It starts with "When creating a field the Mind Field, and up to 49 other creatures..." - wuh? Maybe explain what a "field" is first; and it's a bit confusing because the name of the feature ("field") is similar to the name of the class ("mind field").
Mind Kill (5e Spell) Full of punctuation and grammar errors. The terminology also needs serious improvement
Minecrafter (3.5e Class) Spelling and grammar throughout needs fixing.
Monohue Magician (4e Paragon Path) Elemental Summoning needs clarification - what do the question marks mean?
Movanic Deva (3.5e Racial Class) Does not read through well.
Multiplectic (5e Race) grammar and formatting mistakes

Prophet (3.5e Prestige Class) See talk.
Pugilist (3.5e Class) Terminology and wording need fixing (they fight with "little weapons"? :)
Pumpkin child (3.5e Race) Terminology issues throughout ("health points"?)
Pyromancer (5e Class) This class has capitalization errors and unclear wording, see Class Do's and Don'ts (5e Guideline) as well.
Quadon's intense pain (5e Spell) Wording needs improving. Is there any chance this could do something more interesting than lots-of-damage. Every high-level damaging spell in the PHB has some interesting twist on the way it works. This is just flat damage.
Quietus (5e Class) This is full of little wording errors. Example: "half their hit points remaining(not including temporary hit points)"; temporary hit points are not hit points, so this caveat is unneeded; quick build should mention a specific background (it is quick build), features shouldn't be referred to as "abilities", and so on
Raptorborn (5e Race) Spelling needs improving (it's "raptor" for a start).
Rimefire (5e Equipment) Grammar would benefit from revision.
Ronin of the Blade (3.5e Class) Grammar errors throughout.
Salve-Maker (5e Class) Terminology issues, see talk page.

Shadow Stalker (5e Class) "1d20+background/race gp. "? Why not make that thieves' tools, since they are proficient with it. Spells should be in lower-case italics. Many features have awkward wording.
Shardsoul (3.5e Template) Grammar and terminology need overhauling.
Sky Mage (5e Class) Class is excessively wordy. Consider moving Domain Spells to 5e Spells.
Slinger's wand (5e Equipment) The weapon has unclear wording, and numerous typos, capitalization, and other grammatical errors.

Staff of Cats (5e Equipment) This item shouldn't use once a day wording.
Stand User (5e Class) The abilities are confusing, to the degree they cannot be understood.
Super Hero (3.5e Class) Grammar and spelling. A lot of terms are contracted or abbreviated when they shouldn't be.
Templar (3.5e Class) Grammar needs improving.
The 20 moon pearls (5e Equipment) Spelling and grammar need improving.

The iron gauntlet (5e Deity) Spelling and grammar need a lot of work.
Theurge (3.5e Class) Poor spelling and grammar throughout.
Thunder Cleaves (3.5e Prestige Class) Abilities are not written out for most of the progression.
Tome of runes (5e Equipment) Should use second-person perspective ("you acquire", not "he/she acquires").
Transmutation Alchemist (5e Class) Needs general cleanup and a few grammatical corrections
Trolling (5e Race) Trolling Taunt starts off fine, but the ideas get muddled about halfway through, consider rephrasing.
True Dragonborn (5e Race) The spelling and grammar on this page is horrendous.
True Healer (5e Class) This class shouldn't use the "Once a day" and "per long rest" wording. See Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize as well.
Uchiha (3.5e Race) Grammar and descriptions need improving.
Undead LongBow Wording needs to be improved. You need to explain what the "+2" is, and that this is a magic weapon, for example; and it should be written in second-person perspective.
Unliving Savant (3.5e Class) Spelling and grammar need work.
Valinor Guard (3.5e Class) See above
Vampyre (5e class) Full of spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.
Vanguard (5e Class) This class has several unclear features, also there is no term for physical saving throws and free actions in 5e. See the wiki's Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize.
Vizison (4e Race) Sentence syntax/grammar needs work.
Void Archer (3.5e Class) Description is grammatically poor, nonsensical in places.
Voidblade (5e Class) Garbled in some places, features are poorly worded. For example I have no idea what Gate Onslaught does.
Vulpin (5e Race) Phrasing of the traits needs improving.
War Bound (5e Class) The wording on this class is rough due to the numerous class features that have unclear wording. Many of this class's features should also not use the per short or long wording, and instead should use you regain use of this feature after you finish a short or long rest. See Help:When to Italicize and Capitalize as well.
Warchief (5e Class) There is no once per combat term in 5e, there is only standard durations, you should not give static bonuses to initiative, and the class should avoid using the X per short or long rest wording. There is also no resistance to ranged attacks and numerous other features have poor wording or simply have terms not descripted in 5e or D&D. See the Class Do's and Don'ts (5e Guideline) and the 5e Class Design Guide. It might also help to read up on 5e through the PHB.
Warmage (5e Class) This class should not use the per short/long rest wording, shouldn't have round counting, and the class has numerous features that don't follow the wiki's When to Italicize and Capitalize rules, like the spells which should be italicized and not capitalized. Also, see Class Do's and Don'ts (5e Guideline).
Wastelander (3.5e Class) Writing is poor.
