Class parametersEdit

Note: Levels GA ( Good article) and FA, FM, FL (Featured content), are assessments made by the community, rather than by this WikiProjects. GAs are generally reviewed by one or two editors and FA, FM, FL by a panel. Candidates are nominated by listing them at WP:Good article nominations, WP:Featured article candidates, Wikipedia:Featured list candidates and Wikipedia:Featured pictures nominations.

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject COVID-19}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject COVID-19|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):

Importance parametersEdit

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject COVID-19}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject COVID-19|listas=|small=|attention=|needs-image=|needs-infobox=|unref=}}

WikiProject COVID-19 (Rated Project-class, Low-importance)
This page is within the scope of WikiProject COVID-19.
 Project  Quality: rating not applicable
 Low  Importance: Low
More information:
Note icon
This page has been marked as needing immediate attention.
Note icon
This article has been marked as needing an infobox.
Note icon
It is requested that an image or images be included in this page to improve its quality.
Note icon
This page 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 Li Wenliang, use |listas=Wenliang, Li so that the talk page will show up in the W's and not the L'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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • needs-image – set |needs-image=yes to request that a picture or pictures be included in the 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.
  • unref – set |unref=yes To request more references and/or adequate inline citations
