  • |nomessage= set to yes if there is not any option to customise the awards message.
  • |autosign= set to yes if the template automatically signs the message.
  • |header= Used to add any header notes to docs. Add things such as shortcut links here.
  • |footer= Used to add any footer notes to docs.
  • |usage= Used to replace the standard Usage-section with a user defined.
  • |cat= Category name (without "Category:"), if it is something more specific than Barnstar award templates
