Template:WikiProject Film/doc

The {{WikiProject Film}} project banner template should be added (never subst:ed) to the talk page of every article within the scope of the project. While the template does not require any additional parameters, it has a number of optional ones that add various extra features to the banner.

Basic usageEdit

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Film}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Film|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):
