Template:Monthly clean-up category

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

UsageEdit

The simplest usage is just {{Monthly clean-up category}} In this case a default message page for that group of categories will need to exist. See Template:Monthly clean-up category/Messages for a list of existing message pages and to understand the naming convention.

Also the category will need to follow the naming convention "Blah blah from November 2020". (See #Limitations for more information.)

If a red-linked counter category is shown, simply populate it with {{Counter category}}.

Parameter tocEdit

  • toc = focus - gives a focus letter
  • toc = toc - give a category style table of contents
  • toc = none -

Parameter hiddenEdit

  • hidden = n - The category will not be hidden.

ExamplesEdit

FocusEdit

{{Monthly clean-up category
 | type    = silly articles
 | message = silly articles should be deleted
 | toc     = focus
 | cat     = test stubs
}}




This category combines all silly articles from November 2020 (2020-11) to enable us to work through the backlog more systematically. It is a member of Category:test stubs.
silly articles should be deleted
So that articles don't remain in this category too long, a suggestion is made to work on articles beginning with a certain letter. The letter is changed daily.

The current focus is on articles beginning with: T.

TocEdit

{{Monthly clean-up category
 | type    = silly articles
 | message = silly articles should be made sensible
 | toc     = toc
 | cat     = test stubs
}}

Nearly empty copyEdit

 | type    = 
 | toc     = toc
 | cat     = 
 | hidden  = y
 | message = 
}}

LimitationsEdit

If category names are over 100 characters, or contain special characters, the template may need to have "year" "month name" and "monthno" supplied.

Similarly if the category name does not follow the convention "Blah blah from November 2020".

ExampleEdit

...

| monthno = 11
| month name = November
| year    = 2020
