BannersEdit

For reasons of maintenance, it is desirable that all the articles that are under the scope of this project be categorized in a simple and easy manner. To do this, most WikiProjects use banners and so does WikiProject Indian Railways. These banners automatically add the talk page of the article to the suitable sub-category of Category:Indian railways articles by importance. It is highly recommended that whenever one creates or edits an article within the scope of Indian Railways, they check for the following banners on the article's talk page. Doing so will not only help better organise WikiProject Indian railways, but also WikiProject India and WikiProject Trains. To add an article's talk page within the scope of this WikiProject, place one or both (as per situation) of the given banners by entering the respective code for it:

WikiProject India bannerEdit

Place {{WikiProject India|railways=yes|railways-importance=}} at top of the article's talk page and choose railways-importance from either 'top', 'high', 'mid' or 'low'. It will produce:

WikiProject India / Railways (Rated Project-class)

WikiProject Trains bannerEdit

To use this banner, place {{WikiProject Trains|India=yes|India-importance=}} at the top of the article's talk page (note that the capitalization on the parameter name is significant). It looks like this (with the class=NA parameter used for this transclusion):

WikiProject Trains / in India (Rated NA-class)
This page is within the scope of WikiProject Trains, an attempt to build a comprehensive and detailed guide to rail transport on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, where you can join the project and/or contribute to the discussion. See also: WikiProject Trains to do list and the Trains Portal.

Importance ratingEdit

Both of the banners require the user to specify an importance paramater. The available options to choose from and the condition in which to use them are given below. Important: Do not add different/conflicting importance parameters for both the banners. In simple words, if a page has both the banners, they both must have the same importance rating.

Please note that the importance ratings for WikiProject Trains is different. It is strongly advised that the importance scale of WikiProject Trains be consulted with when changing the overall importance rating through the {{TWP}} banner.
