Usage

This template is designed to replace banner templates of inactive WikiProjects. This results in a reduced-size banner on uses of the template and a message explaining that the project is inactive.

The easiest way to convert a banner template to an inactive state, is to replace WPBannerMeta with WPBannerMeta/inactive.

Parameters

The only required parameters are:

  • PROJECT - the name of the WikiProject (but without the word "WikiProject")
  • BANNER_NAME - the page name of the banner template
  • category - should be passed to allow category optout, i.e. |category={{{category|}}}

However all the other Template:WPBannerMeta parameters can and should be retained, as this will make it easier to "revive" the project in the future.

Example

{{WPBannerMeta/inactive
 |PROJECT     = Extreme sports
 |BANNER_NAME = Template:WikiProject Extreme sports
 |category={{{category|}}}
}}

produces:

WikiProject Extreme sports    (Inactive) (Rated [[Category:-importance {{{ASSESSMENT_CAT}}}]]-importance)
WikiProject iconThis article was within the scope of WikiProject Extreme sports, a project which is currently considered to be inactive.
 [[:Category:[[category:-importance {{{assessment_cat}}}]]-importance Extreme sports articles|[[category:-importance {{{assessment_cat}}}]]]]  This article has been rated as [[Category:-importance {{{ASSESSMENT_CAT}}}]]-importance on the importance scale.
 

When inside a banner shell the result is:

          This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:
WikiProject Extreme sports    (Inactive) (Rated [[Category:-importance {{{ASSESSMENT_CAT}}}]]-importance)
WikiProject iconThis article was within the scope of WikiProject Extreme sports, a project which is currently considered to be inactive.
 [[:Category:[[category:-importance {{{assessment_cat}}}]]-importance Extreme sports articles|[[category:-importance {{{assessment_cat}}}]]]]  This article has been rated as [[Category:-importance {{{ASSESSMENT_CAT}}}]]-importance on the importance scale.
