Usage

The {{WikiProject Kent}} 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 Kent
|class=
|importance=
|unref=
}}

any of the above parameters can be left blank

Comments should be added on the linked Talk sub page created by the template.

Parameters

  • class – see the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – see the project's importance scale for details.
  • 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 Charles Dickens, use |listas=Dickens, Charles so that the talk page will show up in the D's and not the C's of the various assessment and administrative categories). 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.
  • 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}}.
  • unref – set |unref=yes if the article lacks sufficient references and/or adequate inline citations.
  • 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.

Instructions

An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Kent}} project banner on its talk page

{{WikiProject Kent| ... | class=??? | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

Note: Articles have to be nominated and assessed to achieve GA status or higher

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed-Class Kent-related articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

The following values may be used for the importance parameter:

The parameter is not used if an article's class is set to NA, and may be omitted in those cases, this adds articles to Category:Unknown-importance Kent-related articles. The importance should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Importance scale

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of Kent.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.
