The {{WikiProject Germany}} 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 Germany
| small           =
| class           = 
| B-Class-1       =
| B-Class-2       =
| B-Class-3       =
| B-Class-4       =
| B-Class-5       =
| importance      =
| attention       =
| unref           =
| mapneeded       =
|  mapdetails     =
| imageneeded     =
|  imagedetails   =
| needs-infobox   =
| Frankfurt       =
| GDR             =
|  GDRImp         =
| Hamburg         =
|  HamburgImp     =
| HRE-taskforce   =
|  HREImp         =
| Mainz           =
|  MainzImp       =
| Munich          =
|  MunichImp      =
| Prussia         =
|  PrussiaImp     =
| Transport       =
| listas          =

To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template.

Template display formatting parameters[edit]

  • 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.
  • 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 Johannes Althusius, use |listas=Althusius, Johannes so that the talk page will show up in the A's and not the J's of the various assessment and administrative categories; similarly, for topics with titles beginning with an article such as "the" or "a" - e.g. for A Time to Love and a Time to Die, use |listas=Time to Love and a Time to Die, A so that the talk page will show up in the T's). 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.
  • 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.

Article assessment parameters[edit]

  • class – see the project's quality scale for details. B-class checklist (available only when |class=stub |class=start |class=c or |class=b):
    • B-Class-1 – Referencing and citation (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • B-Class-2 – Coverage and accuracy (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • B-Class-3 – Structure (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • B-Class-4 – Grammar and style (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • B-Class-5 – Supporting materials (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • Set these to "yes" or "y" if the article meets the criterion; "no" or "n" if it does not. If the criterion has not been checked, omit the parameter or leave it with a blank value. When |class=b is set, all five criteria need to be satisfied, otherwise the article is treated as if |class=c were set.
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • The parameters |b1= to |b5= are recognised as aliases for |B-Class-1= to |B-Class-5=. If both |B-Class-1= and |b1= are present, |b1= is ignored; similarly for the other four pairs. |B1= to |B5= are also accepted, when none of the other variants are present.

Project work parameters (set them to "yes" to include them)[edit]

Miscellaneous maintenance parameters (set them to "yes" to include them)[edit]

  • mapneeded – set |mapneeded=yes if the article needs a map.
  • imageneeded – set |imageneeded=yes if the article needs an image (other than a map).
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.

Subproject switches[edit]

The letter i at the taskforces are capital.
