The {{WikiProject Wales|class= |importance= }} 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 Wales
 |class         = 
 |importance    =
 |attention     =
 |imageneeded   =
  |imagedetails =
 |mapneeded     =
  |mapdetails   =
 |needs-infobox =
 |small         =
 |B-Class-1     =
 |B-Class-2     =
 |B-Class-3     =
 |B-Class-4     =
 |B-Class-5     =
 |listas        = 
 |biota         = 
 |biota_importance = 

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

Article assessment parameters

  • 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.

Project work parameters (set them to "yes" to include them)

Miscellaneous maintenance parameters (set them to "yes" to include them)

  • imageneeded – set |imageneeded=yes to mark the article as needing an image.
  • mapneeded – set |mapneeded=yes to mark the article as needing a map.

Template display formatting parameters

  • 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 Aneurin Bevan, use |listas=Bevan, Aneurin so that the talk page will show up in the B's and not the A'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.
  • small – this parameter is no longer supported and can safely be removed from the 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.


  • 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.
