Use the {{Uncategorized}} or {{uncat}} tag to put articles in this category. Optionally add a date parameter such as {{Uncategorized|date=January 2010}} to add it into the by-date categories. Another way to do this is {{subst:dated|Uncat}}. A bot will sort any that are not given the date parameter.

Everyone who wants to work (or already works) on categorizing articles that are uncategorized may be interested in joining the task force at Wikipedia:WikiProject Categories/uncategorized. Sign up and be a part of the team!

If you enjoy categorizing articles and have memorized most of the Wikipedia categories, you may also enjoy helping out here.

Hints and tips

  • Use the most specific category you can find and remember that an article can often be placed in multiple categories.
  • Look at similar articles to see what categories are available.
  • Remember to use the birth/death/living categories for articles about people. (especially Category:Living people)
  • Help other editors working on the backlog by categorizing articles even if you nominate or propose them for deletion.
  • When in doubt, use a temporary higher-level category and place them in Category:Better category needed. Try to leave a message on the article's talk page so that future editors can refine the categorization.
  • Stub and maintenance categories are considered only "temporary" categories; stubbed articles should be included in permanent categories as soon as possible.
  • It is not considered necessary to add the {{uncategorized}} template to stub-sorted articles, but neither is it forbidden to do so. It's preferable to simply add a category instead. Alternatively, add {{uncategorizedstub}} or {{uncatstub}}, to enable prioritisation of categorisation effort between entirely uncategorised articles, and those with sorted stub types.
  • Not all articles listed here are worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia. If the notability is doubtful add a {{notability}} tag or put it up for deletion.
