Usage

Project banner

The {{WikiProject Aviation}} 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 some optional ones that add extra features to the banner. The full syntax is as follows:

{{WikiProject Aviation
|class=  
|attention= 
|imageneeded=
|needs-infobox=
|A-Class= 
|collaboration-candidate=
 |current-collaboration=
 |past-collaboration=
|peer-review= 
 |old-peer-review= 
|small=

<!-- B-Class checklist -->
<!-- 1. It is suitably referenced, and all 
major points are appropriately cited. -->
|B-Class-1=
<!-- 2. It reasonably covers the topic, and 
does not contain major omissions or inaccuracies. -->
|B-Class-2=
<!-- 3. It has a defined structure, including 
a lead section and one or more sections of content. -->
|B-Class-3=
<!-- 4. It is free from major grammatical errors. -->
|B-Class-4=
<!-- 5. It contains appropriate supporting materials, 
such as an infobox, images, or diagrams. -->
|B-Class-5=

<!-- Portals -->
|portal= 

<!-- Task forces (general topics) -->
|Accident=
|Aircraft=
|Airlines=
|Airports=
|Air-sports=
|Biography=
|Defunct=
|Engines=
|Gliding=
|Rotorcraft=
}}

General parameters

  • class – see the project's quality scale for details. B-class checklist (available only when |class=stub |class=start |class=c or |class=b):
    • b1 – Referencing and citation (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b2 – Coverage and accuracy (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b3 – Structure (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b4 – Grammar and style (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b5 – Supporting materials (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • Set these to "yes" or "y" if the article meets the criterion; "no" or "n" if it does not. If the criterion has not been checked, omit the parameter or leave it with a blank value.
  • 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.
  • infobox – set |infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox.
  • imageneeded – set |imageneeded=yes if the article needs an image (other than a map).
  • A-Class= "pass", "fail", or "current" indicates the status of the article's A-Class review; see the review department for more details.
  • peer-review – set |peer-review=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-review – set |old-peer-review=yes if the article has had a peer review which is now archived.
  • 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 {{WikiProjectBannerShell}} or {{WikiProjectBanners}}.
  • 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 Reinhard Heydrich, use |listas=Heydrich, Reinhard so that the talk page will show up in the H's and not the R'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 The Airscrew Company, use |listas=Airscrew Company, The so that the talk page will show up in the A'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.
  • 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.
  • The parameters |B-Class-1= to |B-Class-5= are recognised as aliases for |b1= to |b5=. If both |b1= and |B-Class-1= are present, |B-Class-1= is ignored; similarly for the other four pairs.

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