The {{WikiProject Kent}} 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 Kent
Any of the above parameters can be left blank.

Comments should be added on the linked Talk sub page created by the template.


  • class – 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.
  • unref – set |unref=yes if the article lacks sufficient references and/or adequate inline citations.
  • 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 Charles Dickens, use |listas=Dickens, Charles so that the talk page will show up in the D's and not the C'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.
  • small – this parameter is no longer supported and can safely be removed from the template.


Quality assessment

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Kent}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Kent|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class Kent-related articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Kent-related articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Kent-related articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Kent-related articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Kent-related articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Kent-related articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Kent-related articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Kent-related articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Kent-related articles)  List 

For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:

Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Kent-related articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Kent-related articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Kent-related articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Kent-related articles)  ??? 
Note: Articles have to be nominated and assessed to achieve GA status or higher.

The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

Importance assessment

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Kent}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Kent|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project (see Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Priority of topic for assessment criteria):

Top (adds articles to Category:Top-importance Kent-related articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Kent-related articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Kent-related articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Kent-related articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Kent-related articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Kent-related articles)  ??? 

The importance should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Importance scale

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of Kent.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.
