A simple yet comprehensive tutorial would help a lot: I.E. - inline, general references


  • Most images are located on Commons.
  • Starting point for Lithuania-related images on commons: Category:Lithuania
  • For images on English Wikipedia, try this search.
  • Some good images are on Lithuanian wiki. Try looking there, but those images most likely will have to re-uploaded to commons.
  • If there is no image you want try Look for creative commons images. However, only Attribution License & Attribution-ShareAlike License are acceptable on Wikipedia. When uploading, don't forget to identify flickr users who took the pic!
    • Don't get confussed because Flickr also has something it calls "public image." That is not the same as copyright status.


Here are some Wikipedia conventions:

  • For main articles use this template: {{main|ARTICLE NAME}}
  • For related topics use this template: {{see also|ARTICLE NAME}}
  • Add a non-breaking space (   ) between a unit and the value (e.g. 25 [[kilometre|km]] renders as 25 km)
  • Use − for negative numbers
  • Wikify articles WP:WIKIFY


Stub templates[edit]

All stub templates and categories are maintained by WP:WSS. Please direct request for new stub templates / categories to WP:WSS/P instead of simply creating them. Going through WP:WSS ensures a consistent naming format and that the templates are listed the correct places. Both things help the stub sorters tremendously in their work. Thanks for your understanding.

Category tree[edit]

Main article Wikipedia:Categorization

The category tree is quite simple - you might explore it through category:Lithuania and its subcategories and sub sub categories. I've made some changes, to make it similar to other countries categories. IMO this is about enough, just some explanation is needed, and I might even write it in some time. They're quite easy to create - no request is needed.

Basic principle is to identify category properly - geography, history, education and so on. Then look into subcategories - maybe there is more precise category, not so general doe example Vytautas Magnus University should fit into category:Education in Lithuania, but more precise would be category:Universities in Lithuania, and also category:Education in Kaunas. category:History of Kaunas is also suitable for this article.

Multiple categories also can be used, where appropriate - for example Kūčios could be in category:Lithuanian cuisine (if section about food would be expanded) and category:Lithuanian traditions.

A bit more complicated is category:Lithuanian people - the principle is, that most of them go via category:Lithuanian people by occupation to precise occupation, for example category:Lithuanian architects. There are also a few subcategories - for example category:Lithuanian writers has subcategories category:Lithuanian poets and category:Lithuanian journalists.

Incomplete articles shoud be marked as an appropriate stub.
