This template is to be placed on the talk pages of all Europe-related articles. To add, enter the following:
Class and importance parameters are used for rating articles, as part of the Version 1.0 Editorial Team Assessment project and are explained in the assessment department of WikiProject Europe. For further information, see this project's quality and importance scales.
- class – valid values are fa, a, ga, b, c, start, stub, fl, list, na (case-insensitive). See the project's quality scale for details.
- importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). 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-photo – set
|needs-photo=yes if it is requested that an image or images be included in this article to improve its quality.
- ESA – set
|ESA=yes if the article is supported by the ESA task force.
- 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 First name Last name, use
|listas=Last name, First name so that the talk page will show up in the L's and not the F's of the various assessment and administrative categories). 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.
