Immediate GoalsEdit

To bring all pages that are not stubs to class-B status in the Human genetic history project. When this is sufficiently done to elicit help sufficient to promote some to GA status.


The article meets the six B-Class criteria:

  1. The article is suitably referenced, with inline citations where necessary.
  2. It has reliable sources, and any important or controversial material which is likely to be challenged is cited.
  3. The use of citation templates such as {{cite web}} is not required, but the use of <ref></ref> tags is encouraged. [Note: Thanks to the work of Andrew, I think we are going to move articles to the Harvard reference system with the {{Citation}} style]. I am working for producing a database of Harvard tags and citations in the WP:HGH page. Also Now that the Diberri tool is back on line, it would be nice to see those full citations again.
  4. The article reasonably covers the topic, and does not contain obvious omissions or inaccuracies.
  5. It contains a large proportion of the material necessary for an A-Class article, although some sections may need expansion, and some less important topics may be missing.
  6. The article has a defined structure. Content should be organized into groups of related material, including a lead section and all the sections that can reasonably be included in an article of its kind.
  7. The article is reasonably well-written. The prose contains no major grammatical errors and flows sensibly, but it certainly need not be "brilliant". The Manual of Style need not be followed rigorously.
  1. The article contains supporting materials where appropriate. Illustrations are encouraged, though not required. Diagrams and an infobox etc. should be included where they are relevant and useful to the content.
  2. The article presents its content in an appropriately accessible way. It is written with as broad an audience in mind as possible. Although Wikipedia is more than just a general encyclopedia, the article should not assume unnecessary technical background and technical terms should be explained or avoided where possible.

This is on top of the standards for Class-C


A few aspects of content and style need to be addressed, and expert knowledge is increasingly needed. The inclusion of supporting materials should also be considered if practical, and the article checked for general compliance with the manual of style and related style guidelines.

The article is substantial, but is still missing important content or contains a lot of irrelevant material. The article should have some references to reliable sources, but may still have significant issues or require substantial cleanup.

The article is better developed in style, structure and quality than Start-Class, but fails one or more of the criteria for B-Class. It may have some gaps or missing elements; need editing for clarity, balance or flow; or contain policy violations such as bias or original research. Articles on fictional topics are likely to be marked as C-Class if they are written from an in-universe perspective.

Useful to a casual reader, but would not provide a complete picture for even a moderately detailed study. Considerable editing is needed to close gaps in content and address cleanup issues.

Project PagesEdit

These pages I am intensely working on to improve references, remove speculative material, add more secondary review sources, and wikify.

Past Project PagesEdit

Pages Created (>150)Edit

  • Prehistoric_Ireland Yes, believe it or not, this first page of mine still exists, actually quite nice. It needs references.
  • Subpage HLA-A1 has been created, improving the readability of HLA-A
  • Template:AutoAbBox has been created and is in use in a half dozen articles
  • Template:AbBox has been created and is in use in a couple of article.
  • All HLA-Ax pages created, some need to be refined others are done.
  • 14 HLA-Cw Are to be created. Some information from HLA-A will be moved to Cw.

to Firefox, which saved a copy of the last uploaded page. After a first brutal week and alot of prejudice on the part of certain Admins, it did survive.

  • Megha-Tropiques Mission Neither this one or the GEWEX were my interest but it seemed that both were big and news worthy enough to enjoy their own page. GEWEX has alot of interesting links.
  • Magsat -Why this page had not previously been created is something of a mystery. In anycase I created it.
  • Spacecraft magnetometers - Alot of work. Information scattered and not cataloged.
  • gluten immunochemistry - This page started out as a section in Triticeae, it was moved to Triticeae glutens, I moved it to a new page gluten sensitivity, I cleaned up that page to make it more useful and finally it has its own page. The page is OK now.

Pages that I am working on that need more workEdit

  • Gluten-sensitive idiopathic neuropathies Same as gluten allergies.
  • HLA-DQ8 needs to be shortened and brought into the same format as other DQ pages. Some of the information on the page could be separated to a special HLA DR4-DQ8 page.
  • HLA-A This page will have diseases and subtypes in linking table. No information about specific alleles on this page, all details on subpages.
  • HLA-B (Badly needs attention) The plan for HLA-B is to create subpages based on broad antigens in a linking table, then to expand those antigens within the pages. These can be expanded out later.
  • HLA-C same problems as HLA-B

Pages that I am working on that are approaching review stageEdit

  • HLA-DQ intro need to be rewritten in wiki style but is readable.

Pages that I am working on that need outside reviewEdit
