Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Welcome to the WikiProject Lists, an effort to collaboratively develop Wikipedia's list articles and embedded lists.




List-friendly search results enhancements

  • SearchSuite.js provides menu items to modify your search results. Some of the features include sort, hide details (listify), and even format your search results for easy copying and pasting into lists, with a click of your mouse. And more.



The assessment department gives details of our Quality and Importance statistics. This project will use only FL, List, and Stub for articles. Quality Classes such as Image, Template, Portal, Disambiguation, Category and Project will only be included in order to conform with the predefined Wikipedia:Namespace.

Currently, this project uses the Version 1.0 Editorial Team bot for article statistics. Therefore, it has become necessary for the project create a Custom mask for Quality class. The Custom mask for WikiProject Lists limits class to FL, List, and Stub for articles, and automatically changes incorrect class codes.

Article statistics

After adding our Project template to a talk page, you may run our Assessment bot by clicking Run the bot right away on the bot's User page. Type the word List, then click Submit.

Incomplete lists

Because of Wikipedia's role as an almanac and a gazetteer as well as an encyclopedia, it contains a large number of lists. Some lists, such as the list of U.S. state birds, are typically complete and unlikely to change for a long time.

Some lists, however, cannot be considered complete, or even representative of the class of items being listed; such lists should be immediately preceded by the {{ Incomplete list}} template, or one of its topic-specific variations. Other lists, such as List of numbers, may never be fully complete, or may require constant updates to remain current – these are known as "dynamic lists", and should be preceded by the {{ Dynamic list}} template.

It is our hope that other Wikipedians will pick up where we leave off, and add more items to the list, bringing it closer, if not to completion, then at least to a mature state in which only minor updates are required as times change. Of course, it's not clear for all lists what should or shouldn't be on it, and so completion may never be clear for these lists, but there should at least come a point where most representative and widely agreed upon entries are present.
