This project aims to add size categorization to WikiIndex. This page is where we'll develop the internal categorization scheme, as well as where we'll share what we know about how to get size information from wikis running on various engines. Please jump in and help!

Size categories are being renamed[edit]

According to the discussion contribution of user:69.87.199.67, I think, we should establish a way for auto-categorisation of size in certain way(s):

  • Wiki with 201 to 500 pages

by typing

pages = 349 (in our Size template)

in the Template:Size, the date can be obtained by

{{CURRENTTIMESTAMP}} // (20170327004631) [1]

or similar (year-month-day). Using the parser funcions extension #if or #switch, size and size categorization time could be auto-categorized for maintainance. --Wolf | talk 14:11, 21 February 2007 (PST)

Categorization scheme[edit]

We now have a new mechanism of categorization of wikis by size. The size template has a new field parameter – pages= – which should be used to set the actual 'good' page count (ie, not stubs, redirects, talk pages, etc). The original 'wiki_size' field parameter is now obsolete.

The size categories have also moved; the original categories will initially be transformed into redirects. In the following list, categories that have already emptied are striked out; and once they are emptied, will be deleted (and will therefore show as red links) to avoid any future misuse:

Category:Wiki Size (old style)Category:Wiki Size

"size classes"[edit]

The size classes are for better orientation against zero-blindness.

L — Large
M — Medium
S — Small
U — Unknown

According to the following size-class-independend ordering scheme, the size classes can be changed easily.

subcategory ordering scheme[edit]

category name format
"Wiki with " + lower_bound_page_count + " to " + upper_bound_page_count + " pages"
category order
(digits of lower_bound_page_count -1) × "0" + letter
where letter depends on the most significant digit of lower_bound_page_count
  • A if most this digit is 5
  • B if most this digit is 2
  • C if most this digit is 1

Templates[edit]

Size data[edit]

We now have Template:Size. Its draft boilerplate is on its talk page. Please add it to the bottom of a couple wiki entry pages to see if it works. We still need to figure out the categorization issues. TedErnst | talk 12:22, 9 Mar 2006 (EST)

Size navigation[edit]

For navigation, the template:Wiki size navigation has been developed.

How to get size information[edit]

See the instructions at Template:Size.

This is the text of the Template:CategoryDiscussions. It is intended to connect the various discussions about categories (also called "tags") that are taking place on various pages here on WikiIndex. If you find a discussion on categories that doesn't have this template, please add the template by typing in {{CategoryDiscussions}}, at the bottom of the page, and then go edit the template to include it and summarize the discussion you found. The following discussions have taken, or are taking place:
