How to manage this template's initial visibility

To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:

|state=collapsed to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar – e.g. {{Dams and Reservoirs |state=collapsed}};
|state=expanded to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible – e.g. {{Dams and Reservoirs |state=expanded}};
|state=autocollapse to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page – e.g. {{Dams and Reservoirs |state=autocollapse}}.

Unless set otherwise (see the state parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is autocollapse.

Notice to editors[edit]

  • Please avoid removing redlinks. Redlinks increase the chances of the article being created.
  • Please limit this list to Countries. Link smaller regions within the larger country-list.
  • To be in line with the current naming style, please name new lists in the form of List of dams and reservoirs in [country].
  • Nearly all reservoirs (man-made lakes) are formed by the creation of some form of dam. Hence a comprehensive "dams and reservoirs" list would be more helpful to the reader, as well as the maintaining of lists by editors. Consider not creating separate individual "List of dams in [country]" or "List of reservoirs in [country]" type lists.
