elcome to WikiProject Rome! This WikiProject has been formed to foster the improvement of Wikipedia's coverage of all things Roman. From the city's founding to its contemporary history.

We work in a spirit of cooperation with the many Wikipedians who have contributed to articles on subjects related to Rome. This page and its subpages contain suggestions on formatting and layout of articles, which can be discussed at the project's talk page. To participate simply add your name to the participants section, including (if you so wish) any particular interests or relevant specialisms. This project aims to address the production, improvement and coordination of articles related to Rome all seen in their broadest senses. It intends to expand Wikipedia's resources on the subject in a fair and accurate manner and to act as a locus where controversies can be aired and hopefully resolved. Similar to Wikipedia:WikiProject Classical Greece and Rome, Rome along with Greece, this project's scope retains those precise periods but with an emphasis focused on structures, monuments, people and locations of importance to Roman history.

Current collaboration

Please help with our current collaboration on the Plebs

The plebs was the general body of free land-owning Roman citizens (as distinguished from slaves and the capite censi) in Ancient Rome. Members of the plebs were also distinct from the higher order of the patricians. A member of the plebs was known as a plebeian (/plɨˈbən/; Latin: plebeius). This term is used today to refer to one who is or appears to be of the middle or lower order; however, in Rome plebeians could become quite wealthy and influential. In fact, Nero, a Roman emperor, was born a "pleb". His success was not uncommon and approximately 30% of Roman emperors were "plebs".[citation needed]

Tools and templates

Templates for articles

The above are the current infoboxes in use by the project. Other Ancient Rome templates can be found at [1]. The project urges all editors to use an info box on all Rome pages, including monuments ancient and contemporary and related articles such as the one used on the page Domus which uses a basic template with image and contains as much "at a glance" information as possible. The subheadings should be redirects to related articles with article information related below it separated by left and right boxes for further subject separation. The basic template can be expanded from this example.
