The {{WikiProject Australia}} banner template should be added to the talk page of every article within the scope of WikiProject Australia. Usage of the template does not require any additional parameters; however, it has a number of optional ones that add various extra features to the banner.

Example usage with basic parameters: 

{{WikiProject Australia|class=|importance=}}

Example usage with additional parameters:

{{WikiProject Australia|class=Start|importance=Mid|Sydney=yes|afl=yes}}

General parameters[edit]

  • class – a rating of the article's quality; see the assessment department for more details.
  • importance – a rating of the article's importance; see the assessment department for more details.
  • attention – "yes" if the article requires immediate attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • needs-infobox – "yes" if the article lacks an infobox, otherwise remove this line.
  • orphan – "yes" if the article is not assigned to a subproject or work group.
  • portal – "yes" if the article is used in the featured article queue of the Australia Portal, the subpage number of its entry.
  • acotf – "yes" if the article is currently a candidate for the project's Collaboration of the Fortnight.
  • past-collaboration – "yes" if the article was previously a Collaboration of the Fortnight, the dash-separated dates of the collaboration period; must be left blank otherwise.
  • small – "yes" enables the template to generate a smaller, right-aligned message box.
  • auto – This parameter is for the use of bots.
  • ACR – See the A-Class Review page for usage and details.

WikiProject specific parameters[edit]

Many of these also have an -importance parameter, e.g. WA-importance, sports-importance.

Other topics[edit]

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