Template:WikiProject Animation/doc


UsageEdit

The {{WikiProject Animation}} project banner template should be added (not 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. This template automatically adds articles to Category:WikiProject Animation articles. The full syntax as it follows:

ParametersEdit

General parameters:

  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details. B-class checklist (available only when |class=stub |class=start |class=c or |class=b):
    • b1 – Referencing and citation (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b2 – Coverage and accuracy (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b3 – Structure (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b4 – Grammar and style (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b5 – Supporting materials (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b6 – Accessibility (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • Set these to "yes" or "y" if the article meets the criterion; "no" or "n" if it does not. If the criterion has not been checked, omit the parameter or leave it with a blank value. When |class=b is set, all six criteria need to be satisfied, otherwise the article is treated as if |class=c were set.
  • importance – valid values are listed in the custom importance mask. See the project's importance scale for details.
  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention; this should be used sparingly. It is strongly encouraged to also add a section to the talk page explaining what needs attention.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • needs-image – set |needs-image=yes if the article requires an image or photograph, which should be added per guidance and per fair use.
  • unref – set |unref=yes if the article requires additional references.
  • cleanup – set |cleanup=yes if the article requires a general cleanup. Please detail what aspects of the article require clean-up on the article's talk page, otherwise the tag can be removed without redress to the problems.
  • fiction – set |fiction=yes if the article requires rewriting to maintain an out of universe approach per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (writing about fiction).
  • small – this parameter is no longer supported and can safely be removed from the template.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Winsor McCay, use |listas=McCay, Winsor so that the talk page will show up in the M's and not the W's of the various assessment and administrative categories; similarly, for topics with titles beginning with an article such as "the" or "a" - e.g. for A Computer Animated Hand, use |listas=Computer Animated Hand, A so that the talk page will show up in the C's). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people § Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.

Reviews and collaborations:

Portals:

  • portalX-name – if the article has been selected for use on a portal, the name of that portal. The name should be given without any formatting or namespace prefixes; thus, Portal:Animation is given as "|portal1-name=Animation". Up to five different portals may be specified, via the parameters portal1-name through portal5-name.
  • portalX-link – the portal subpage location where the article may be found on the corresponding portal. This should be given as a pure unlinked subpage name; thus, Portal:Animation/Selected article/6 is given as "|portal1-link=Selected article/6".
