B-class criteria[edit]

I added the ability of the template to track B-Class criteria (using the "B-Class-n=" parameters), borrowing from {{WPMILHIST}} and {{WPGR}}. I've also left instructions in the template on how to use these new parameters (hopefully these are less intrusive than the ones at {{WPMILHIST}}) and added them to the documentation. --Tim4christ17 talk 12:33, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

C-Class compatibility added. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 08:39, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Update[edit]

I've put a new version of the template on the sandbox which uses {{WPBM}}. Would there be any concerns about using it? There would be no loss of functionality. A couple of questions:

  1. Is the B-class checklist actually desired? There is no mention of it on the project's assessment scale.
  2. The flag parameter does not seem to be used. (The corresponding category does not even exist.) Do you want it? Or would it be better to use the more common attention parameter?

Looks good to me! I have no preferences as to flag v. attention, though I would prefer we keep the B-class checklist. The points on the checklist are required for B-Class according to our assessment scale, so this provides a useful guide for users upgrading the status of the article. And it is hidden, so it isn't taking up space on the talk page. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 16:29, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Come to think of it, I'd forgotten there even was a "flag" parameter. I wouldn't be opposed to removal completely. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 16:32, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. I removed flag as suggested. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 17:34, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
