Description

The state tag is a multi-use label that states the current condition of the product the article is covering.

Note that the tag should only be removed once the tag is no longer relevant to the product (i.e. product is fully released, not under active development). The tag should also be updated when the state of the product has changed (ex. product has moved from development/Early Access to release state).

Arguments

  • state or 1 - prototype, dev, postdev, unknown, unplayable.
  • dev is also mapped to synonyms such as Early Access or EA.
  • Certain obsolete values are also available but not required to be used. Visually these all work the same as dev, but adds the article to different categories:
  1. predev
  2. prealpha
  3. alpha
  4. beta
  • 2 - A value added as the second parameter disables adding the article to game related categories. Use e.g. product or non-game to disable the categorization for applications and the like.
  • ref - Used only for unknown and unplayable states only.
