B-Class checklist

The checklist will appear automatically on articles rated as "C-Class" or "B-class", but this checklist is available for all rated and unrated articles if the parameters are included in the template. See the assessment department for more details on classes. With any of these classes, the banner will automatically display directions on how to use these parameters.

For an article to qualify for B-class, it must meet six points. Each one of these points has a corresponding banner variable. For each of these points, assign "yes" if the standards are met and "no" if not. Leave blank if uncertain.

  • B-Class-1 – Is the article suitably referenced, and are all major points appropriately cited?
  • B-Class-2 – Does the article reasonably cover the topic, and not contain major omissions or inaccuracies?
  • B-Class-3 – Does the article have a defined structure, including a lead section and one or more sections of content?
  • B-Class-4 – Is the article free from major grammatical errors?
  • B-Class-5 – Does the article contain appropriate supporting materials, such as an infobox, images, or diagrams?
  • B-Class-6 – Does the article present its content in an appropriately understandable way?

Project work parameters

  • needs-infobox: If the article needs an infobox, add |needs-infobox=yes; leave blank if not needed.
  • attention: If the article needs immediate attention, add |attention=yes; leave blank if not needed.
  • listas: Use the |listas= field to change how the article is sorted in categories and other filters, especially for albums with titles beginning with an article, such as "the" or "a". For example, use |listas=Process of Belief, The for the album article, The Process of Belief.
  • unref – If the article lacks sufficient references and/or adequate inline citations, add |unref=yes; adds article to Category:Unreferenced album articles
  • imageneeded – If the article needs images (e.g., album cover for the infobox or band images), add |imageneeded=yes; adds article to Category:Wikipedia requested images of albums
    • imagedetails – This parameter appears only if imageneeded is set to yes. Add additional details to describe the image requested.
  • auto – This parameter is used when the template is built by a bot and indicates that the bot assessed the article as a stub. If you see a message that a bot auto-assessed, please take the time to review the assessment and remove the line. This parameter should not be used for manually created entries.
