Template:WikiProject Crime/doc


The {{WikiProject Crime}} 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. The full syntax is as follows:

{{WikiProject Crime
| class           =  
| A-Class         =
| importance      =
| peer-review     = 
| B-Class-1       = y/n <!-- Referencing and citations -->
| B-Class-2       = y/n <!-- Coverage and accuracy -->
| B-Class-3       = y/n <!-- Structure -->
| B-Class-4       = y/n <!-- Grammar and style -->
| B-Class-5       = y/n <!-- Supporting materials -->

To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template.

Article assessment parametersEdit

  • class – a rating of the article's quality; see Wikipedia:WikiProject Crime/Assessment for more details. Valid values are:
    • FA – The article has reached Featured article status.
    • A – Could be submitted as a Featured article candidate; probably could use some small updates to make it Featured quality.
    • GA – The article has reached Good article status.
    • B – Could be submitted as a Good article nominee; probably could use some updates or may lack some features from the Good article criteria, but it presents a good overview of the subject.
    • C - Better developed in style, structure and quality than Start-Class, but fails one or more of the criteria for B-Class.
    • Start – The article is more than a stub, but may lack some important aspects of the topic's discussion.
    • Stub – The article is a stub; it likely contains one of the Crime stub templates.
    • NA – The page is not an article and should not be rated; it could be a template, image or category, for example.
    • Disambig or Dab – The article is a disambiguation page.
    • Template – The page is a template.
    • Category or Cat – The page is a category.
  • importance – a rating of the article's importance within the WikiProject Crime. Valid values are: Top, High, Mid and Low

B-Class checklistEdit

This is available only for unrated articles and articles rated as "Stub-Class", "Start-Class", or "B-Class". See the assessment page for more details.

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 5 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?
