Usage

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

{{WikiProject Politics
 | class = 
 | importance = 
}}

or

{{WikiProject Politics |class= |importance= }}

"Comments that explain the rating" may be added by clicking on the link within the template; other comments and questions can be discussed on the article's talk page.

Maintenance parameters

 |attention=
 |needs-infobox=
 |image=
 |peer-review=
 |old-peer-review=
 |peer-review-title=
 |listas=
 |small=
  • peer-review – set |peer-review=yes if the article is currently undergoing a peer review, or to request that the peer review process for this page should be begun.
  • old-peer-review – set |old-peer-review=yes if the article has had a peer review which is now archived.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
listas
  • 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 David Cameron, use |listas=Cameron, David so that the talk page will show up in the C's and not the D'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.

For more information about the sort key, please see Wikipedia's institutions for sort by surname.
