Project banner

The {{WikiProject Spaceflight}} 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 Spaceflight
<!-- B-Class checklist -->
<!-- Referencing & citations -->
|b1= <yes/no>
<!-- Coverage & accuracy -->
|b2= <yes/no>
<!-- Structure -->
|b3= <yes/no>
<!-- Grammar & style -->
|b4= <yes/no>
<!-- Supporting materials -->
|b5= <yes/no>
<!-- Accessibility -->
|b6= <yes/no>
<!-- Working groups -->
|space_stations = 


  • class – see the project's quality scale for details. B-class checklist (available only when |class=stub |class=start |class=c or |class=b):
    • b1 – Referencing and citation (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b2 – Coverage and accuracy (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b3 – Structure (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b4 – Grammar and style (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b5 – Supporting materials (see the project's B-class criteria for details).
    • b6 – Accessibility (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 six 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.
  • 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; this should be used sparingly.
  • infobox – set |infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • needs-image – set |needs-image=yes if the article needs an image or photograph .
  • DLSA – set |DLSA=yes if the article was featured on The Downlink.
  • 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 Yuri Gagarin, use |listas=Gagarin, Yuri so that the talk page will show up in the G's and not the Y'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 The Spaceship Company, use |listas=Spaceship Company, The so that the talk page will show up in the S'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.
  • The parameters |B-Class-1= to |B-Class-6= are recognised as aliases for |b1= to |b6=. If both |b1= and |B-Class-1= are present, |B-Class-1= is ignored; similarly for the other six pairs.
