WikiIndex:WikiProject - By Size — this project aims to add size categorization to WikiIndex. This page is where we will develop the internal categorization scheme, as well as where we will share what we know about how to get size information from wikis running on various wiki engines. Please jump in and help!

Size categories are being renamed[edit]

According to the discussion contribution of user:, 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}} // (20240724040058) [1]

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

Categorization scheme[edit]

We now have a new mechanism of categorization of wiki sites 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 appear as red links if they were to be repopulated) 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-independent 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


Size data[edit]

We now have template:Size. Its draft boilerplate was 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 category navigation, the template:Wiki size navigation has been developed.

How to get size information[edit]

See the instructions at template:Size.

Template: Category discussions[edit]

Note: in order to assist readability of included talk pages, please ensure the template rendering this table is kept at the BOTTOM of the displayed page (manually move to bottom if required).
This is the text of the Template: Category discussions. It is intended to connect the various discussions about categories here on WikiIndex that are taking place (or have previously taken place) on various pages. Please also see WikiIndex: How do categories work, and how to use our {{Tag}} template. If you find a discussion on categories which does not display this message box, please add this template by copying the following {{Category discussions}}, and pasting at the bottom of the edit box on the required talk page, and then go edit this template to include it, and summarise the discussion you found. The following discussions have taken, or are taking place:

You can also check all pages that link to this template (using the backlink function).
