Usage

The {{WikiProject Video games}} 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. All pages should include class and importance, when possible. These parameters will put the page into the appropriate subcategory in WikiProject Video games.

Other parameters

  • imagedetails – (appears only if |screenshot=yes) Additional details to describe the image that is requested.
  • ' – set |yes if the page is a candidate to be the project collaboration.
  • GCOTW – set |GCOTW=yes if the page is currently the project collaboration.
  • old-GCOTW – set |old-GCOTW=yes (or any non-blank value other than "no", "n", "0" or "¬", such as the dates it was part of the collaboration) if the page was a past project collaboration.
  • listas - This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey, is a sortkey for the article talk page. Use this parameter when the title of an article begins with "the", "a", and "an", i.e. A Tree of Palme, you can instead have "listas=Tree of Palme, A" — so that it will show up in the T's... Also used to properly sort names based on surnames instead of the first word ("Cloud Strife" --> "Strife, Cloud"), and "List of" articles based on the series name and type of article ("List of characters in Metal Gear Solid" --> "Metal Gear Solid characters"). Note that this parameter only affects categories used by this banner and will not affect the sortkey of other banners and templates.
  • 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}}.
  • 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.

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