If you must edit this template:

  • If the changes are significant discuss it on the talk page first.
  • Please give a detailed edit summary to explain what you're doing.
  • Don't mark major edits as minor.
  • Do the changes in a sandbox first and then paste them in a single edit.

Usage[edit]

Please note: This template should be transcluded ({{WikiProject Baseball}}) and not substituted (subst) because it employs conditional code. Transclusion also allows easy updating of all the Project's talk pages without having to edit thousands of pages.

Field descriptions[edit]

  • class – see the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – see the project's importance scale for details.
  • auto – This parameter is for the use of bots and indicates that the article has been automatically rated:
    • |auto=length – based on the length of the article
    • |auto=inherit – because one or more other projects use this class
    • |auto=yes (or |auto=stub), in conjunction with |class=stub – as Stub-Class because it uses a stub template
  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox.
  • image – set |image=yes if the page needs images; otherwise leave blank.
  • peer-review – set |peer-review=yes if the page is currently nominated for peer review by WikiProject Baseball.
  • old-peer-review – set |old-peer-review=yes if the article has received a peer review from WikiProject Baseball.
  • 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 Babe Ruth, use |listas=Ruth, Babe so that the talk page will show up in the R's and not the B'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.
  • 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.

The following parameters are task force specific and the following parameters are for task force specific assessment and only need to be added to the task force in use.


  • japan: Answer yes for articles relating to baseball in Japan. They then will come to the attention of the Japanese baseball task force.
  • korea: Answer yes for articles relating to baseball in Korea. They then will come to the attention of the Korean baseball task force.
  • taiwan: Answer yes for articles relating to baseball in Taiwan. They then will come to the attention of the Taiwanese baseball task force.
  • negrolg: Answer yes for articles relating to Negro league baseball. They then will come to the attention of the Negro league baseball task force.
  • umpires: Answer yes for articles relating to baseball umpires. They then will come to the attention of the Umpires task force
  • japan-importance: Options are Top, High, Mid, Low, NA.
  • korea-importance: Options are Top, High, Mid, Low, NA.
  • taiwan-importance: Options are Top, High, Mid, Low, NA.
  • negrolg-importance: Options are Top, High, Mid, Low, NA.
  • umpires-importance: Options are Top, High, Mid, Low, NA.

The following parameters are for project inclusion and only needed to be added if the project suits the article and the following parameters are for project specific assessment and only need to be added to the project in use.'

Notes[edit]

To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template. A common initial configuration for the template includes the following basic parameters:

{{WikiProject Baseball|class=|importance=}}
