Category:Biography articles without living parameter

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This category contains biography articles within the scope of the Biography WikiProject. Articles are automatically added to this category by using the project banner template.


Living is a parameter found in the coding of the WikiProject Biography box, or {{WikiProject banner shell}}. Its usage is given at Template:WikiProject Biography. A person known to be dead should be explicitly marked as such.

If an article in this list is not directly about person(s), then it should not be tagged with Template:WikiProject Biography and appropriate replacement WikiProject(s) should be added to the talk page. A list of WikiProjects can be found here. For example, an office such as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom should not be marked with the banner template, but a musical band such as Pink Floyd should be tagged.

When an article is about many persons (such as a list of persons), the editor needs to see if at least one of the persons is still alive. If they are then living=y should be used. If all persons in the list are dead then living=n should be used.

Although many (but not all) errors in the category can automatically be fixed by BattyBot, fixing your own errors is the best practice.
