Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template adds article talk pages, category talk pages, template talk pages, etc. (whatever it is placed on) to Category:WikiProject Spiders articles. It is also used to track article classifications and presents readers with a current "to do" list.

(Consider consulting with User:Sarefo before making any changes, please.)


  • The template always goes onto Talk pages, not article pages. The template must be transcluded and not substituted (using subst).
  • The template accepts two optional, case-insensitive parameters.
    1. The following values denote the "article quality" as decided upon at WP:ARTH. Passing one of these values as the parameter places the Talk page into the applicable category which is scanned by Mathbot to create the Wikipedia Version 1.0 article lists.
      • If the attached article is a featured article, use {{WPSpiders|FA}}
      • If the attached article is a good article, use {{WPSpiders|GA}}
      • If the attached article is A-Class, use {{WPSpiders|A}}
      • If the attached article is B-Class, use {{WPSpiders|B}}
      • If the attached article is Start-Class, use {{WPSpiders|Start}}
      • If the attached article is Stub-Class, use {{WPSpiders|Stub}}
      • If the attached article is Disambiguation-Class, use {{WPSpiders|Dab}}
      • If the attached page is a category, use {{WPSpiders|Cat}}
      • If the attached page is a category, use {{WPSpiders|Template}}
      • If any other value is supplied as the parameter (such as "Merge" or "Mergedel"), the page s supposed to be unassesed.
    2. Parameter 2 denotes the article's importance. The possible values are:

For main space articles which have not yet been assessed, simply use {{WPSpiders}}. This default places the article in Category:Unassessed Spiders articles and Category:Unknown-importance Spiders articles, and doesn't change the wording of the template in any way.
