The {{WikiProject Wales|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 Wales
 |class         = 
 |importance    =
 |attention     =
 |imageneeded   =
  |imagedetails =
 |mapneeded     =
  |mapdetails   =
 |needs-infobox =
 |small         =
 |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.

B-Class checklist

This is available only for unrated articles and articles rated as "Stub-Class", "Start-Class", or "B-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?

Project work parameters (set them to "yes" to include them)

  • mapneeded - The article needs a map; adds articles to Category:Wikipedia requested maps in Wales.
