The Magna Carta Project has two types of templates: project boxes (see this page) and stickers (described on this page). See more about these types of templates and others at Help:Templates.

Stickers

Stickers offer a less formal way of highlighting information of note on people's profiles. The project has three approved stickers:
Magna Carta Project logo
... ... ... is a Magna Carta Project affiliate.
  • {{Member|Magna Carta Affiliate}}: This sticker is for use by active WikiTree members with an interest in the Magna Carta Surety Barons and their descendants but not in joining the project's work on trails between Barons and Gateways. Affiliates help monitor profiles on the Magna Carta Project's watchlist by joining the project's Profile Alerts Google Group.
Magna Carta project logo
... ... has Magna Carta connections.
  • {{Magna Carta Project}}: This sticker is for use on profiles that the project wants to add to its watchlist but not manage. If the profile will probably be in a project-reviewed/approved trail eventually, it's best to instead go ahead and add the "Trail Pending" project box (with "|status=development" if appropriate) and make the Magna Carta Project a manager (add the project account). If you use the Trail Pending project box, be sure that the Magna Carta Project section has been added to the profile (see this page for details about that section), as that project box will have text that links to it.
Magna Carta Project logo with "No MC Trail" across it.
This profile should not be in a Magna Carta trail.
  • {{No Magna Carta Trail}}: This sticker is for use by project leadership when a profile needs to be flagged as not having a Magna Carta trail but is managed by another project.

We also have adapted coding for the Descendant Sticker (see next section) and the Recognition Sticker (see Magna Carta Recognition Stickers).

Descendant Sticker for profiles outside the project's scope

The scope of the project is from Magna Carta Surety Baron to Magna Carta Gateway Ancestor, as documented in the works of Douglas Richardson (with some exceptions - see the project page for details and additional links). While the project does not cover modern profiles (it does not cover past about 1700, as the Gateway Ancestors Richardson documents immigrated by 1700), other projects do and many WikiTree members have well-documented trails between themselves and Gateway Ancestors who are in a trail approved by the Magna Carta project, such as Gateway Ancestor Leonard Calvert.

While outside of the project's scope, if you have developed your trail to one of the project's Gateway Ancestors, you might want to use the following coding to place a Sticker on your profile similar to the example using Leonard Calvert:
{{Descendant
|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png
|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo
|id=[[WikiTree-ID|Your Gateway Ancestor]], [[:Category:Gateway_Ancestors|Gateway Ancestor]]
}}
Magna Carta Project logo
or
{{Descendant
|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png
|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo
|id=[[WikiTree-ID|Your Gateway Ancestor]], [[:Category:Gateway_Ancestors|Gateway Ancestor]], to [[:Category:Surety Barons|surety baron]] [[WikiTree-ID|His Surety Baron]]
}}
Following are a couple of additional examples.
Magna Carta Project logo
Descendant of Thomas Harris, who may have Magna Carta connections.
Example with link only to the ancestor who may be a descendant of a surety baron:
{{Descendant
|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png
|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo
|id=[[WikiTree-ID|Name]], who may have Magna Carta connections
}}


Magna Carta Project logo
Descendant of Robert Crossman, gateway ancestor to a Magna Carta Surety Baron.
Example with a link to the category listing the Magna Carta Surety Barons:
{{Descendant
|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png
|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo
|id=[[WikiTree ID|Name]], gateway ancestor to a [[:Category:Surety Barons|Magna Carta Surety Baron]]
}}

The previous Descendant sticker examples are appropriate for active WikiTree members' profile pages, and there is no limit to how many stickers you can add to your own page. However, stickers on shared ancestor profiles should be limited to five (with three being recommended - see Help:Stickers, which details usage guidelines for stickers; see also Template:Descendant for other examples of how the sticker can be used).

So, keeping in mind the need for only 3-5 stickers on a shared ancestor's profile, and considering that the further back you go, the greater the likelihood that the profile will be managed by a project, the following is suggested as a sticker for Gateway Ancestors' profiles who are not yet in a project-approved trail:

Magna Carta Project logo
Descendant of several Magna Carta Surety Barons.
{{Descendant
|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png
|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo
|id=several [[:Category:Surety Barons|Magna Carta Surety Barons]]
}}

If your immigrant ancestor is not one of the 240 Richardson-documented Gateway Ancestors, but you are working on researching and developing a trail, the following sticker might be appropriate for the immigrant ancestor's profile:

Magna Carta Project logo
Descendant of a Magna Carta Surety Baron (possibly- research underway).
Example with link to Category:Surety Barons for an ancestor whose potential trail you are researching:
{{Descendant
|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png
|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo
|id=a [[:Category:Surety Barons|Magna Carta Surety Baron]] (possibly- research underway)
}}

Another explanation of how to add a Descendant sticker with the Magna Carta Project logo:

Copy/paste the following

{{Descendant|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo|id=

then add text to complete "Descendant of" statement (the sticker automatically adds "Descendant of" before whatever text is added using the |id= parameter) & close with double braces.

See additional directions on the template page for the Descendant sticker: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Descendant
