Ainu stubs[edit]

WP:JAPAN has supported the creation of the Wikipedia:WikProject Japan/Ainu task force to deal with articles related to the indigenous Ainu people of northern Japan and the Russian Far East. These articles all fall (or should fall) within Category:Ainu. While the category is undergoing some significant expansion as we gear up the Task Force, I have identified 33 stub articles here: User:MatthewVanitas/Ainu_stubs. Most of them marked "stub" are for locations in Hokkaido (the current centre of remaining Ainu culture), stubs of "Japanese mythology" (though specific to the Ainu vice the national majority Yamato people) or otherwise stubbed as "Japanese history", "Japanese bio", etc. (same minority vs. majority ethnicity identification issue). This stub would be specific to a Task Force of a massive WikiProject, so I submit the 30-threshold should be considered. Ainu articles are simply subsumed by non-Ainu Japanese templates and thus difficult to single out otherwise. Thanks for any input! MatthewVanitas (talk) 16:58, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

I suggest Category:Ainu stubs and {{ainu-stub}}, and also {{ainu-bio-stub}} feeding the same category, until/if the main category grows large enough to split. --Qetuth (talk) 03:14, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
If the scope is identical to the taskforce scope then the banner rating would classify a complete set. Possibly the WP Japan banner would need an update for that. That would then include articles which are marginally related ie relevant to the taskforce but not primarily about the subject. Agathoclea (talk) 07:33, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Task Force Ainu and ainu-stub would be identical in scope. I'm not quite clear on what updates you mean for the banner, unless you mean adding "Ainu task force" to the Task Forces list on the WP:JA Navbox (just did so now since you mentioned it). Is there a stock listing of "complete set" for stub templates? Though given the TF is new and growing I'm inclined to support Qetuth's sugestion that the Ainu stubs all feed the same category until such point as some become large enough to sub-section. MatthewVanitas (talk) 16:16, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Something akin to Category:Stub-Class_Japan-related_articles which most likely has not been set up yet. At least I have not found anything yet. I'll ask a banner wizzard to look at that. Agathoclea (talk) 12:58, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

From a stubsorting perspective I feel there is too little to start a new tree. From a management perspective the desired effect (without the stubsorting work) can be achived getting the relevant project categories set up. This has the added benefit of getting statistics/article alerts. It will also track more than just the stubs for you. If you go down that route it would also be an idea to ask the Russia WikiProject if you could include a switch in their template as well feeding into the same categories to be able to cover the relevant articles on the other side of the border.

Agathoclea stopped by my talk page and asked me to stop by. I can help you add Ainu as a task force to a WikiProject banner if you need help and that and its what you want to do. There may be some overlap between the Stub category and the project stub category and doing this solely for the sake of stubs is probably not necessary. There are however, likely a lot of other articles in other statuses (start, GA, List, etc.) that could not fall into an Ainu task force. Below is a list of about 240 items including some categories and templates that I found that might apply to the task force based on Category:Ainu and I'm sure this isn't all of them especially if you want to include other content types like files:

On further review of the Japan banner it looks like someone added Ainu as a task force already but if you need help with creating the catgories I can help you with that also. Kumioko (talk) 13:41, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
That's what I found - only the categories to be generated by the banner and getting the content processed by the WP1.0 bot is still needed. Agathoclea (talk) 14:46, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok that shouldn't be a problem. Lemme play around with it in the sandbox and see if i can get that working for you. Kumioko (talk) 17:10, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I added the functionality to inherit the class to Ainu categories in the sand box for Template:WikiProject Japan here so now all you have to do is build the categories and implement the change. I don't have admin rights and the template is fully protected so I cannot apply it. I did notice one other thing you might want to consider changing in the template. All the parameters are lower case so ainu must by input as ainu in order for it to apply to the task force. This also applies to all the other task forces as well. If someone puts it in as Ainu with a capital A then it would not appear. You might want to add Ainu as an alias to allow it to be counted as well. In my experience many people will naturally capitalize the first letter of a place and may not notice it isn't getting picked up. Please let me know if you need anymore help.

You'll have to forgive me, but though I'm experienced at writing articles, the above tech details are a bit Greek to me. I think the basic Task Force and its tags within the Japan project are running decently, but I'm unclear as to what steps I have to take from this point to get "ainu-stub" to function and to file its articles in a category of stubs for the Ainu Task Force. It'd also be great to add the Ainu flag (shown right) as the icon for "ainu-stub" to keep it consistent with the emblem used for the Task Force. Thanks for any advice in clearing up what steps or info I should be providing at this stage of the process. MatthewVanitas (talk) 19:47, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Definitely use the banner, as that will help your project team track all classes. However, I have created exploratory templates {{Ainu-stub}} and {{Ainu-bio-stub}}. The category can wait until these have been populated. Dawynn (talk) 08:39, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Beauty Pageant stubs[edit]

There are 50 or so articles transcluding asbox for individual Beauty pageants, and a few more general articles on the topic. Currently most are tagged just a country-stub, and a few also have {{award-stub}}. Propose {{Pageant-stub}}/Category:Beauty pageant stubs as parent of {{Pageant-bio-stub}}/Category:Beauty pageant contestant stubs and child of....I'm not certain here.

Category:Award stubs does not seem to cover that the name/article describes an entire event? Category:Fashion stubs or maybe Category:Festival stubs?

In any case, propose category even if 60 not quite reached as this would become the root stub category of a wikiproject (Wikipedia:WikiProject Beauty Pageants) with over 600 stub-quality articles (althought project is inactive and most of the 600 are bios). --Qetuth (talk) 09:05, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
