Usage

The {{WikiProject Video games}} 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. All pages should include class and importance, when possible. These parameters will put the page into the appropriate subcategory in WikiProject Video games.

Syntax

Shortened version
{{WikiProject Video games
|class = 
|importance =
|cover = 
|screenshot = 
|needs-infobox = 
}}

Task forces

Other parameters

  • peer – set |peer=yes if the article is currently undergoing a peer review, or to request that the peer review process for this page should be begun.
  • old-peer – set |old-peer=yes if the article has had a peer review which is now archived.
  • GCOTW – set |GCOTW=yes if the page is currently the project collaboration.
  • old-GCOTW – set |old-GCOTW=yes (or any non-blank value other than "no", "n", "0" or "¬", such as the dates it was part of the collaboration) if the page was a past project collaboration.
  • 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 Cloud Strife, use |listas=Strife, Cloud so that the talk page will show up in the S's and not the C'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 Tree of Palme, use |listas=Tree of Palme, A so that the talk page will show up in the T'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.
  • small – this parameter is no longer supported and can safely be removed from the template.
  • 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.

Aliases

  • The parameter |eSports= is recognised as an alias for |esports=. If both |esports= and |eSports= are present, |eSports= is ignored.

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