Wikipedia's contents: Lists

Wikipedia has thousands of lists of things; some are even lists of other lists. This is a non-comprehensive list of such lists, arranged by item type (not all of which are physical). For the highest quality lists, see Wikipedia:Featured lists. Note, that outlines and indexes are also lists, but, since they overlap with each other, they both have their own contents page.
