Welcome to the WikiProject Lists, an effort to collaboratively develop Wikipedia's list articles and embedded lists.

Goals

Scope

Tools

List-friendly search results enhancements

  • SearchSuite.js provides menu items to modify your search results. Some of the features include sort, hide details (listify), and even format your search results for easy copying and pasting into lists, with a click of your mouse. And more.

Guidelines

Assessment

The assessment department gives details of our Quality and Importance statistics. This project will use only FL, List, and Stub for articles. Quality Classes such as Image, Template, Portal, Disambiguation, Category and Project will only be included in order to conform with the predefined Wikipedia:Namespace.

Currently, this project uses the Version 1.0 Editorial Team bot for article statistics. Therefore, it has become necessary for the project create a Custom mask for Quality class. The Custom mask for WikiProject Lists limits class to FL, List, and Stub for articles, and automatically changes incorrect class codes.

Article statistics


After adding our Project template to a talk page, you may run our Assessment bot by clicking Run the bot right away on the bot's User page. Type the word List, then click Submit.

Incomplete lists

Main category: Category:Incomplete lists

Because of Wikipedia's role as an almanac as well as an encyclopedia, it contains a large number of lists. Some lists, such as the list of U.S. state birds, are typically complete and unlikely to change for a long time.

Some lists, however, cannot be considered complete, or even representative of the class of items being listed; such lists should be immediately preceded by the {{Expand list}} template, or one of the topic-specific variations that can be found at Category:Hatnote templates for lists. Other lists, such as List of numbers, may never be fully complete, or may require constant updates to remain current – these are known as "dynamic lists", and should be preceded by the {{Dynamic list}} template.

It is our hope that other Wikipedians will pick up where we leave off, and add more items to the list, bringing it closer, if not to completion, then at least to a mature state in which only minor updates are required as times change. Of course, it's not clear for all lists what should or shouldn't be on it, and so completion may never be clear for these lists, but there should at least come a point where most representative and widely agreed upon entries are present.

Members and userbox

A list of participants can be found at Category:WikiProject Lists participants.

To add yourself to the project add the following to your userpage:

[[Category:WikiProject Lists participants|{{subst:PAGENAME}}]]

Or, if you wish to use the userbox, add {{User WPLISTS}} or {{User WP Lists}} to your user page instead as it includes the above wikicode.

Project

Place the {{WikiProject Lists}} banner on all talk pages of list articles using the following code:

{{WikiProject Lists|class=list|importance=}}

which produces the following box:

and includes the article in the project.

Requests for article improvement

Below are examples of template code to paste at the top of a list section or list article. Paste the code with the curly brackets. The code is followed by what it displays.

Stub templates are placed at the end of articles, below the categories. If the article's content consists of only list material, please use a Request for improvement template rather than a stub template.

Navbox

{{List navbox}} <---Place this footer at the bottom of articles, just above categories.

(Discuss the List navbox Template)

Talk header

Below is template code that can be pasted at the top of a list talk page, for stand-alone lists where inappropriate subjects are often added. Paste the code with the curly brackets. The code is followed by what it displays.
