Usage

The {{WikiProject Germany}} 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 a number of optional ones that add various extra features to the banner. The full syntax is as follows:

{{WikiProject Germany
| small           =
| class           = 
| importance      =
| attention       =
| unref           =
| mapneeded       =
|  mapdetails     =
| imageneeded     =
|  imagedetails   =
| needs-infobox   =
| Frankfurt       =
| GDR             =
|  GDRImp         =
| Hamburg =
| HamburgImp =
| Mainz           =
| MainzImp        =
| Munich          =
|  MunichImp      =
| Transport       =
| B-Class-1       =
| B-Class-2       =
| B-Class-3       =
| B-Class-4       =
| B-Class-5       =
}}

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

    • FA – The article has reached Featured article status.
    • A – Could be submitted as a Featured article candidate; probably could use some small updates to make it Featured quality.

    • C - Better developed in style, structure and quality than Start-Class, but fails one or more of the criteria for B-Class.
    • Start – The article is more than a stub, but may lack some important aspects of the topic's discussion.
    • Stub – The article is a stub; it likely contains one of the Germany stub templates.
    • NA – The page is not an article and should not be rated; it could be a template, image or category, for example.
    • Disambig or Dab – The article is a disambiguation page.
    • Template – The page is a template.

B-Class checklist

This is available only for unrated articles and articles rated as "Stub-Class", "Start-Class", "B-Class" or "C-Class". See the assessment department for more details.

With any of these classes, the banner will automatically display directions on how to use these parameters.

For an article to qualify for B-class it must meet 5 points. Each one of these points has a corresponding banner variable. For each of these points, assign "yes" if the standards are met, and "no" if not. Leave blank if uncertain.

  • B-Class-1 – Is the article suitably referenced, and are all major points appropriately cited?
  • B-Class-2 – Does the article reasonably cover the topic, and not contain major omissions or inaccuracies?
  • B-Class-3 – Does the article have a defined structure, including a lead section and one or more sections of content?
  • B-Class-4 – Is the article free from major grammatical errors?
  • B-Class-5 – Does the article contain appropriate supporting materials, such as an infobox, images, or diagrams?
