This template is the project banner for WikiProject Ethnic groups, and is added to the talk pages of articles within the Project's scope.
Small size option
Setting the parameter |small=yes creates a more compact, right-aligned version. See Talk:Popora people for an example.
The first table below gives a brief, one-sentence description of possible quality scale values. Before assigning any article to a class, please take a few moments and read the full description of the Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team's assessment system.
[Also see the Other Template Parameters, in the second table below.]
Each article may also be assigned to a particular class, intended as a point-in-time assessment of its overall "quality" - relative to the criteria given in the quality scale which is detailed below. Articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed by default in Category:Unassessed Ethnic groups articles.
The following values may be used for the class parameter (they should be entered exactly as given):
|class=FA||Articles which are currently Featured status articles||FA-Class Ethnic groups articles|
|class=A||A-class articles;||A-Class Ethnic groups articles|
|class=GA||Articles with a current Good article status||GA-Class Ethnic groups articles|
|class=B||B-class articles;||B-Class Ethnic groups articles|
|class=Start||Start-class articles;||Start-Class Ethnic groups articles|
|class=Stub||Stub-class articles;||Stub-Class Ethnic groups articles|
|class=NA||Not applicable; ie for miscellaneous pages such as disambiguation pages, which do not require an assessment||Non-article Ethnic groups pages|
Each article may also be assigned a particular importance; for ethnic groups, we make a ver simple use of this. Articles for which a valid importance has not yet been provided are listed by default in Category:Unassigned-importance Ethnic groups articles.
The following values may be used for the importance parameter (they should be entered exactly as given):
|importance=Top||Major, broad articles like ethnic group, nation||Top-importance Ethnic groups articles|
|importance=High||All actual ethnic groups and similar entities and articles on the history of any ethnic group within a particular country or region||High-importance Ethnic groups articles|
|importance=Mid||Other articles that are likely to be of general interest (for example, an article about the theatrical traditions of a particular ethnic group)||Mid-importance Ethnic groups articles|
|importance=Low||Articles that are not about individual ethnic groups and are not likely to be of general interest (for example, a building that houses an ethnic organization); also miscellaneous pages such as disambiguation pages, which do not require an assessment||Low-importance Ethnic groups articles|
