Usage[edit]

To add an article to our worklist, put this template at the top of the article's Talk page with the following parameters:

{{WikiProject Alien
 |class=XXX
 |importance=YYY
}}

where class is chosen from this assessment scale, and importance is the importance to the Alien franchise according to this scale. Comments that explain the rating may be added by clicking on the link within the template; other comments and questions belong on the Talk page of the article itself.

There are, in addition, several optional arguments that you may use with this template:

{{WikiProject Alien
 |class=XXX           Described above
 |importance=YYY      Described above
 |listas=ZZZZ         Lists the page by an alternate name in categories, etc.
}}


Parameters[edit]

  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Sigourney Weaver, use |listas=Weaver, Sigourney so that the talk page will show up in the W's and not the S's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all 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 {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • 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.
  • Use the listas field to change how the article is listed in categories and other filters. Use to list individual people by surname or for topics with titles beginning with an article such as "the" or "a". for example, for the article Sigourney Weaver use listas=Weaver, Sigourney.
