Template:WikiProject Organizations/doc


To add an article to our worklist, put this template at the top of the article's Talk page with the following parameters:

{{WikiProject Organizations 

where class is chosen from this assessment scale, and importance is the importance within Organizations according to this scale. Comments that explain the rating may be added by clicking on the link within the template; other comments and questions belong on the Talk page of the article itself.

There are, in addition, several optional arguments that you may use with this template:

{{WikiProject Organizations 
|class=                 <!-- Stub, Start, C, B, A or others as described in the assessment scale above -->
|importance=            <!-- Top, High, Mid, Low, or NA as described above -->
|maindykdate=           <!-- Date the article appeared in "Did You Know?" on the Main Page, if applicable -->
|needs-infobox= Yes     <!-- To request the addition of an Infobox to the article -->
|needs-image= Yes       <!-- Article would benefit from more images -->
|attention= Yes         <!-- Adds the article to [[Category:Organizations articles needing attention]] -->

Optional parametersEdit

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 Peter Benenson, use |listas=Benenson, Peter so that the talk page will show up in the B's and not the P'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.
  • maindykdate – if a fact from the article appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column, set |maindykdate=date where date is the date that it appeared on the main page.
  • needs-image – set |needs-image=yes to request that an image or images be included in this article to improve its quality
  • 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.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • 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.

Editing this templateEdit

This template may be used on many Wikipedia articles, so damage to this template could have wide-ranging effects. Unfortunately, the template is also difficult to edit properly, since it uses rather complicated parser programming. Please use the utmost caution when changing this template.
