Usage

This template is designed to replace banner templates of inactive WikiProjects. Keeping an inactive project's template on relevant talkpages helps any group of users who later wishes to revive the project.

The easiest way to convert a banner template to an inactive state, is to replace WPBannerMeta with WPBannerMeta/inactive.

Parameters

The only required parameters are:

  • PROJECT - the name of the WikiProject (but without the word "WikiProject")
  • BANNER_NAME - the page name of the banner template
  • category - should be passed to allow category optout, i.e. |category={{{category|}}}

However all the other Template:WPBannerMeta parameters can and should be retained, as this will make it easier to "revive" the project in the future.

Examples

{{WPBannerMeta/inactive
 |PROJECT     = Extreme sports
 |BANNER_NAME = Template:WikiProject Extreme sports
 |category={{{category|}}}
}}
produces:
WikiProject Extreme sports    (Inactive)
WikiProject iconThis template is within the scope of WikiProject Extreme sports, a project which is currently considered to be inactive.
 
When inside a banner shell the result is:

If a WikiProject becomes defunct then apply the |status=defunct parameter in the following manner:

{{WPBannerMeta/inactive
 |PROJECT     = Policy and Guidelines
 |BANNER_NAME = Template:WikiProject Policy and Guidelines
 |category={{{category|}}}
 |status=defunct
}}
produces:
WikiProject Policy and Guidelines    (defunct)
WikiProject iconThis template is within the scope of WikiProject Policy and Guidelines, a project which is currently considered to be defunct.
