CZ:Unchecklisted Articles

From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
Jump to: navigation, search
[edit intro]

The good news is that, as of end of January 2008, we had checklisted all our existing articles, and there was no more backlog. Still, new articles arrive all the time, and some of them need to be checklisted too. So please keep watching this page!

Below is an auto-generated list of articles that have not been provided a "metadata page", sorted by the creation date (oldest go first). The list is updated on weekly basis. If you actively use it, please delete or strike out the entries that you've just checklisted. Below the list you will find a weekly log of our operations.

Note: Some of articles below may be already partially or fully checklisted on their metadata pages. However, they are not seen as "checklisted" in the system due to e.g. the status not being defined, or a lack the {{subpages}} template on the talk page. Just check it.

Thanks for your help!

How to add checklists:

If you know how to start an article with a subpages template, you can help out here. The basic task is to add the checklist to the pages list below. Go to instruction page for basic instructions for filling out the metadata checklist, which theoretically requires doing basic cleanup.

Short description of links attached to articles:

  • (edit) - edit the article; may be useful to add the {subpages} template and to remove the categories from the main article (they go to the metadata page). When the article is not yet subpagified, or there are categories to remove, the link is bolded
  • (talk) - edit the talk page; mainly for inserting the {subpages} template;
  • (hist) - revision history;
  • (WP) - wikipedia article under the same title;
  • (metadata) - create the metadata subpage or edit it if already exists; there you put the info about the article (status, categories, etc..) Important: Please do not forget to insert the page name in the right place, or the subpage system will not work properly!
  • (approval) - create the approval subpage
  • Finally, there are listed the categories found in the body of the article. Sometimes this is an empty field but if not, it is useful to attribute the article to a workgroup. Notice that categories as "Stub Articles" or "CZ Live" should be simply deleted from the main article -- they will be generated anyway by the {{subpages}} template when metadata page is created, and the status is correctly set.

Hint: if the "(edit)" link is not bolded in the list (i.e. the article already has a {subpages} template), probably only the status is missing. So, please go to the metadata subpage first. If the status is defined there, probably there is no {subpages} template on the talk page.
