Film pages must not proceed to Silver or Gold until all of their songs pages have done so.

The Templates

The essential page ranking templates, {{Film Info}}, {{Watcher}} and their surrounding box (created by {{Star Box}}) are placed at the top of the Talk page of the film being ranked. The Talk page is reached by using the "Discussion" tab at the top of the film's page. (Any discussion about the film should still be on this page, set below this template group.)

The grouping of page ranking templates is shown below. Portions shown in GREEN should be changed to correctly reflect the state of that parameter:

{{Star Box}} {{Film Info |fLetter = STATUS |film = STATUS |artist = STATUS |released = STATUS |genre = STATUS |runtime = STATUS |cover = STATUS |asin = STATUS |iTunes = STATUS |imdb = STATUS |wikipedia = STATUS |rtname = STATUS |rym = STATUS |allmusic = STATUS |allsongs = STATUS }} {{Watcher|WATCHER'S USER NAME}} |} __TOC__

Please note that the {{Watcher}} template is optional, but it is required for the film page to be ranked Bronze, Silver, or Gold.

After adding the above template group to the Talk page, the star parameter in the {{Film}} (which utilizes {{Star}}) should be filled in on the film's main page. This provides a visible indicator of the film's current rank, by way of displaying a star on the film page. An example of this is given below:

|film = STAR TYPE

Star Types

Green

StarIconGreen

Films at the Green level are new and in need of human attention. They likely do not have the required sections of the {{Film Info}} template completed.

Violet

StarIconViolet

Films at the Violet level have special needs. Usually, these revolve around non-English language films and the unique challenges they present to web pages. Very likely this has to do with accented characters or ideographic symbols being incorrect or missing. Violet pages are tagged with a {{Code Purple}} and a general topic of the problem. Specifying a sub-type to the problem greatly helps the people with the right kind of expertise find the page. Films at the Violet level may have all necessary {{Film Info}} sections completed, but until the special problems are corrected, should not have their level changed.

Bronze

StarIconBronze

Films at the Bronze level, have someone watching it, protecting it from vandals, and working to improve it. All necessary sections of the {{Film Info}} template have not yet been filled in.

Silver

StarIconSilver

Films at the Silver level have had all necessary sections of the {{Film Info}} template filled in, have someone watching it and all songs on the film are ranked at least Silver, but not all are Gold yet.

Gold

StarIconGold

Films at the Gold level are complete! All necessary information has been filled in, it has at least one watcher, and has all songs on the film at the Gold level. Small changes and updates may take place, but a Gold level film page should be an example of excellence.

Status

The following markers may be used to mark a section's status:

  1. unknown - this section has not been completed on the film page
  2. done - this section has been completed on the film page
  3. not applicable - this section has not been completed because it does not apply to the film.
  • Example: iTunes does not contain many music films, therefore, because there can be no valid link, the parameter should be set as "not applicable".

AllSongs Status

The following markers may be used to mark the status of the |allsongs= parameter:

  1. Black - the level that should be marked if the film has songs without lyric pages ("red links") and/or the songs on the film have not all been ranked
  2. Green - all songs on the film have been listed and exist (no "red links")
  3. Violet - translation help is needed on songs on the film
  4. Bronze - all songs on the film meet (or exceed) the criteria for being ranked Bronze
  5. Silver - all songs on the film meet (or exceed) the criteria for being ranked Silver
  6. Gold - all songs on the film meet the criteria for being ranked Gold
