Wikipedia:WikiProject Expert Request Sorting

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Welcome to the Expert Request Sorting WikiProject, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to sorting articles needing expert attention. The overall objective of this project is to make it easier for experts to find articles they can improve. For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects.

On March 13, 2021, JPxG sorted all 1,564 articles in Category:Articles needing unspecified expert attention. As of then, the category had been completely emptied.


  • Completed: Split up the {{expert}} template into more specific expert subjects.
  • Apparently completed: As of November 2016, both {{expert}} and {{expert-subject}} now redirect to {{Expert needed}}. In progress: Replace instances of {{expert}} with {{expert-subject}}.
  • Inform the appropriate Wikiproject and Portals that the categories have expert requests they might be able to address.


When replacing an {{expert}} tag in an article make sure to follow these important steps.

  1. Find an appropriate WikiProject or Portal to assign the request to. WikiProjects are preferable over Portals.
  2. Replace {{expert}} with {{expert-subject|Subject name}}. Please be careful of capitalization. This template will assign the article to the associated category, which is case-sensitive. Use the same capitalization as the project or portal.
