Usage[edit]

This template adds articles to Category:Good article nominees. It is created automatically by the template substitution {{subst:GAN|topic=name of the section at WP:GAN where the article is listed}}, which should be placed at the top of the talk page of the nominated article.

The syntax is as follows:

{{GA nominee|~~~~~|nominator=|page=|status=|subtopic=|note=|time=}}

An explanation of each parameter:

  • ~~~~~ — Produces a timestamp. This field is populated automatically upon substituting {{GAN}}
  • nominator — The one who nominated the article for good article status. This field is populated automatically upon substituting {{GAN}}
  • page — The page number of the good article review; for example, if an article has never had a good article review before, then page=1. This field is populated automatically upon substituting {{GAN}}
  • status — The status of the GA review. A message indicating the status will appear beneath the article's entry on the nominations page and near the top of the article talk page. Statuses include:
    • onreview: the article is in the process of being reviewed
    • onhold: the reviewer has encountered issues with the article and is prescribing an amount of time for them to be corrected
    • 2ndopinion: the reviewer is in search of a second opinion
  • subtopic — The GA subtopic that is applicable to this page. See the subtopics on the good article page or the instructions page. This parameter is normally populated, except for miscellaneous nominations (Example: the subtopic may be "Biology and medicine").
  • note — A miscellaneous note related to the article or the nomination. This note will appear beneath the article's entry on the nominations page and near the top of the article talk page.
  • time — The amount of time, as stated as a phrase, prescribed by the reviewer for the nominator to address issues with the article while the status is on hold. This phrase will appear near the top of the article talk page. The default is "seven days".

Technical note[edit]

This template uses {{GAN/editintro}}, {{GAN/preload}} and {{subst:GAN/subst}} to provide further instructions and assistance when starting the review subpage.
