Tagging articles[edit]

Any article related to this task force should be marked with "GDR=yes" to the {{WikiProject Germany}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see usage instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:GDR task force articles.

The resulting code is usually:

{{WikiProject Germany
|class=
|importance=
|GDR=yes
|GDRImp=
}}

where GDRImp can be one of Top, High, Mid, Low.

These are the currently tagged articles with their quality and GDR importance ratings:


The assessment log can be seen here: Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/GDR articles by quality log.

Categorize articles[edit]

Add categories to GDR-related articles where appropriate. To do this, add a category template like [[Category:East German writers]] to the bottom of the article on Bertolt Brecht, for example. This will place the categorized page into a list like this one. A working list of GDR-related categories can be found here.

To-do[edit]

  • Tag articles!
  • Categorize articles!
  • Recruit more members!
  • Collaborate and join the discussions. If you know things, teach! (If you don't know things, Ask.)
  • Add new articles! There are plenty of East German topics still unaccounted for!
  • Expand articles (or merge if appropriate). All of these stubs would welcome further care and attention. Other articles needing expansion and improvement:
  • Add things here!




Templates, etc.[edit]

You might find the following to be useful additions to GDR-related articles. Feel free to expand!

  • {{GDR cinema}} - add this template to the bottom of articles on GDR cinema, films, directors, actors, etc.

East Germany Portal[edit]

The East Germany Portal requires regular input and is always seeking volunteers.
