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

Nuvola apps kword.png Goals[edit]

Scope Scope[edit]

  • The project covers all articles that are (or contain) lists. That includes those that are intended to aid in navigation through Wikipedia, and all articles whose intent is to gather disparate articles and info into useful groups.

Guidelines[edit]

Assessment[edit]

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-document.svg Incomplete lists[edit]

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, are either not yet fully filled out or are difficult to keep current because the list is constantly changing. These are both referred to as incomplete lists. It's important that our readers understand that these lists should not be considered complete, or even representative of the class of items being listed. As such, we recommend inserting the {{Expand list}} tag either before or after any incomplete list. Provided, some lists may not be able to be fully complete, e.g. the list of numbers, but you may also add explanation where necessary such as that put at the top of the list of numbers.

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.
