{{VIC
  |title=a title identical to the subpage name of the valued image set candidate
  |ingallery=foo.jpg{{!}}Foo caption
bar.jpg{{!}}Bar caption
  |date={{subst:VI-time}}
  |nominator = ~~~
  |scope=the scope of nomination
  |status=nominated|supported|discussed|withdrawn|opposed|promoted|declined
}}

Parameters[edit]

title (Required)[edit]

This is the mandatory title of the valued image set candidate. This parameter is used to build a link to the full review page at Commons:Valued image candidates/title.

ingallery (Required)[edit]

This is a list of images and their captions. Shall have same format as the contents of a <gallery> with the image-caption pipe separator (|) replaced by the pipe template: {{!}}

date (Required)[edit]

This is the date and time the image was nominated for VIS. When nominating, this is automatically set to the correct value using the default {{subst:VI-time}} value in the VISC nomination preload template. The date format shall adhere strictly to the format

YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM (UTC)

to assure proper sorting in the maintenance sub-categories under Category:Valued image set candidates.

nominator (Required)[edit]

The user, who has nominated the image as a candidate for VISC, e.g., [[User:UserName|UserName]]. Can conveniently be specified as the user signature without a timestamp, that is ~~~ (three tildes). The nominator is not allowed to vote.

scope (Required)[edit]

The scope of the nomination. See Commons:Valued image scope Is expanded in a separate row to:
VISC of the scope of nomination

status (Required)[edit]

The status parameter indicates the current state of the Valued Image Set Candidate in the review process. This is updated during the review procedure. The valid (case-sensitive) states are listed in the following.

If the status parameter differs from one of the listed valid states a help message is shown to the user and the VISC is automatically associated with Category:Valued image set candidates with an invalid status parameter. Under normal circumstances this category should not contain any subpages except this template.

nominated[edit]

This is the initial state of the VISC when it is first published for review. The VISC retains this state until a {{Support}} or {{Oppose}} vote has been cast. If a VISC has been in the nominated state for at least 7 days it can be closed as undecided. The image can also be withdrawn by the nominator. All VISCs with the nominated state are automatically associated with Category:Nominated valued image set candidates.

supported[edit]

This is the state the VISC is set to when one or more {{Support}} votes have been cast, but no {{Oppose}} votes. After a period of 7 days in this state, the VISC can be promoted, thereby closing the VISC for further votes. All VISCs currently in the supported state are automatically associated with Category:Supported valued image set candidates.

opposed[edit]

This is the state the VISC is set to when one or more {{Oppose}} votes have been cast, but no {{Support}} votes. After a period of 7 days in this state, the VISC can be declined, thereby closing the VISC for further votes. All VISCs currently in the opposed state are automatically associated with Category:Opposed valued image set candidates.

discussed[edit]

This is the state the VISC is set to when there is at least one {{Support}} vote and at least one {{Oppose}} vote. The VISC may be promoted or declined based on a majority vote at least 7 days after the first vote and at least 48 hours after the last vote. If there is no majority at that time the nomination can be closed as undecided. All VISCs currently in the discussed state are automatically associated with Category:Discussed valued image set candidates.

withdrawn[edit]

The creator, uploader or nominator can withdraw the nomination at any time, when the VISC is in one of the the states: nominated, supported, opposed, or discussed. This is done by changing the state to "withdrawn". In the withdrawn state no further comments may be added. However, the user who has withdrawn the VISC, is allowed to change his mind and revert the withdrawal. On next VISC maintenance cycle the state is changed to declined. Once in the "declined" state the withdrawal cannot be reverted. All VISCs currently in the withdrawn state are automatically associated with Category:Withdrawn valued image set candidates.

[edit]

When a VISC has been in the supported state for at least 7 days it can be promoted to a valued image set. An alternative path to promoted is via the discussed state. Once promoted, the VISC entry for the image is closed for further votes and comments. All promoted VISCs are automatically associated with Category:Promoted valued image set candidates.

declined[edit]

When a VISC has been in the opposed state for at least 7 days its candidacy for valued image set can be declined. An alternative path to be declined is via the discussed or withdrawn states. Once declined, the VISC entry for the image is closed for further votes and comments. An image which has been declined as a VISC cannot be nominated for VIS again within the same scope unless one or more of the issues leading to failure in the previous review has been addressed. Upon (re)nomination the same review page is used but previous votes are reset. All declined VISCs are automatically associated with Category:Declined valued image set candidates.

undecided[edit]

When a VISC has been in the nominated state for at least 7 days or in the discussed state without a majority vote for at least 48 hours and at least 7 days after the first vote, the VISC can be set to undecided and be removed from the set candidates list. An undecided VISC can be (re)nominated at any time. All undecided VISCs are automatically associated with Category:Undecided valued image set candidates
