The {{WikiProject Rocketry}} 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 Rocketry

General parameters

  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – valid values are listed in the custom importance mask. See the project's importance scale for details.
  • infobox – set |infobox=yes if the article is missing an infobox.
  • image – set |image=yes if the article needs an image.
  • vss – set |vss=yes if the article needs major expansion.
  • 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 Robert H. Goddard, use |listas=Goddard, Robert H. so that the talk page will show up in the G's and not the R'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 – 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.
  • 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.

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


  • The parameter |needs-expansion= is recognised as an alias for |vss=. If both |vss= and |needs-expansion= are present, |needs-expansion= is ignored.
  • The parameter |needs-infobox= is recognised as an alias for |infobox=. If both |infobox= and |needs-infobox= are present, |needs-infobox= is ignored.
    • If |needs-infobox= is used, the values missile, pad and stage are treated as if |needs-infobox=rocket were used.
