Usage

Project banner

The {{WikiProject United States History|class=|importance=}} 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 United States History
|class=  
|importance=
|attention=
|needs-photo= 
|collaboration-candidate=
|past-collaboration=
|peer-review= 
|old-peer-review=
|orphan= 
}}

General parameters:

  • class – a rating of the article's quality; see the assessment department for more details.
  • importance – a rating of the article's importance; see the assessment department for more details.
  • attention – "yes" if the article requires immediate attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • needs-photo - "yes" if the article could benefit from having a photograph but currently does not have one.
  • peer-review – "yes" if the article is currently listed on the project's peer review department.
  • old-peer-review – "yes" if the article was previously listed on the project's peer review department.
  • orphan – "yes" if the article is not currently supported by the United States History WikiProject.

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