Project banner[edit]

The {{WikiProject Military history}} 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. Note that task force parameters have two versions: a long form ("Fooish-task-force=") and a short form ("Fooish="), which are completely interchangeable. Note also that the template accepts "Y" or "y" instead of "yes" and "N" or "n" instead of "no". The full syntax is as follows:

General parameters:

  • small – "yes" if the banner should be rendered in its miniature size; this should be used sparingly and only on crowded talk pages for the time being.
  • class – a rating of the article's quality; see the assessment department for more details.
  • list - "yes" if the article is a list and should be rated using the special list assessment criteria instead of the normal article ones; see the assessment department for more details.
  • A-Class – indicates the status of the article's A-Class review, if any; see the assessment department for more details.
  • no-task-force – "yes" if no existing task force includes the article in its scope.

B-Class checklist (available only for articles rated as "Start-Class", "C-Class", or "B-Class", and must be completed to allow a "B-Class" rating—see the assessment department for more details):

Portals:

  • portalX-name – if the article has been selected for use on a portal, the name of that portal. The name should be given without any formatting or namespace prefixes; thus, Portal:Italian Wars is given as "|portal1-name=Italian Wars". Up to five different portals may be specified, via the parameters portal1-name through portal5-name.
  • portalX-link – the portal subpage location where the article may be found on the corresponding portal. This should be given as a pure unlinked subpage name; thus, Portal:Italian Wars/Selected event/3 is given as "|portal1-link=Selected event/3".

Task forces (general topics):

Task forces (nations and regions):

Task forces (periods and conflicts):

Special projects:

  • Majestic-Titan (or OMT) – 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5, corresponding to the associated operation phase, if the article is part of Operation Majestic Titan.

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