Good article reassessment

Good article reassessment (GAR) is a process primarily used to determine whether an article that is listed as good article (GA) still merits its good article status according to the good article criteria, and to delist it if not. There are two types of reassessment: individual reassessment and community reassessment. An individual reassessment is discussed on the article talk page and concluded by a single editor in much the same way as a review of a good article nomination. Community reassessments are listed for discussion below and are concluded according to consensus. Where possible, editors should conduct an individual reassessment, while community reassessment should be used if delisting is likely to be controversial. Community reassessments can also be used to challenge a fail during a good article nomination. This is not a peer review process; for that use Wikipedia:Peer review. The outcome of a reassessment should only depend on whether the article being reassessed meets the good article criteria or not. Many problems (including the presence of dead URLs, inconsistently formatted citations, and compliance with the Manual of Style) are not covered by the GA criteria and therefore not grounds for delisting.

Unless an article's issues are extensive, consider taking the following steps before initiating a reassessment:

  1. Fix any simple problems yourself. Do not waste minutes explaining or justifying a problem that you could fix in seconds. GAR is not a forum to shame editors over easily fixed problems.
  2. Tag serious problems that you cannot fix with appropriate template messages, if the templates will help other editors find the problems. Do not tag bomb the article.
  3. Notify major contributors to the article and the relevant Wikiprojects. Remember, the aim is not to delist the article, but to fix it.

A list of all open GA reassessment nominees may be found at Category:Good article reassessment nominees.

Articles needing possible reassessment

Occasionally, rather than initiating either individual or community reassessment, an editor will merely tag the article as possibly needing reassessment. These tagged articles are listed below and each needs the attention of an editor to decide if reassessment is required. To tag an article, {{GAR request}} is placed at the top of the article talk page. It is useful to indicate in the edit summary or on the talk page why you think a reassessment may be necessary.

Individual reassessment

When to use this process

  • Use the individual reassessment process when you find an article listed as a good article that you don't believe satisfies the good article criteria and:
    • You would like to receive input from a community of editors who watch the article talk page
    • You believe the decision to continue listing the article or to delist it should be yours, at the conclusion of a good article reassessment discussion (unless you believe a decision made by you is likely to be controversial, then opt for community reassessment instead)
  • Use the individual reassessment process if:
    • You are confident in your ability to assess the article
    • You are not a major contributor to the article
    • You know the article has not been delisted before
    • You don't see any ongoing content dispute or edit war
    • You are logged in (unless you are not a registered user, then you may try asking another editor to reassess the article)

Note

  • Individual reassessments do not appear below on the good article reassessment page; those are all community reassessments.

How to use this process

  • The instructions for individual reassessment are:
  1. Paste {{subst:GAR}} to the top of the article talk page. Do not place it inside another template. Save the page.
  2. Follow the first bold link in the template to create an individual reassessment page (while the second bold link creates a community reassessment page). The individual reassessment page for this article is created as a subpage of the article talk page.
  3. Leave an assessment on this page detailing your reasons for bringing the article to good article reassessment. List the problems you found with the article in comparison to the good article criteria. Save the page.
  4. Transclude the individual assessment on the article talk page as follows: Edit the article talk page and prepare to type at the bottom of the page. Paste in{{Talk:ArticleName/GAn}}. Replace ArticleName with the name of the article and n with the subpage number of the reassessment page you just created. This will display a new section named "GA Reassessment" followed by the individual reassessment discussion.
  5. Notify major contributing editors, relevant WikiProjects for the article, the nominator, and the reviewer. The {{GARMessage}} template may be used for notifications by placing {{subst:GARMessage|ArticleName|page=n}} ~~~~ on user talk pages. Replace ArticleName with the name of the article and n with the subpage number of the reassessment page you just created.
  6. Wait for other editors to respond.
  7. After discussion, you must decide if the article has improved enough to meet the good article criteria. You may close the discussion as well. An individual assessment may be closed after seven days of no activity.
  8. To close the discussion, edit the individual reassessment page of the article and explain the outcome of the discussion (whether there was consensus and what action was taken).
  9. The article either meets or does not meet the good article criteria:
    • If the article now meets the criteria, you can keep the article listed as GA. To do this, delete the {{GAR/link}} template from the article talk page and update the {{Article history}} template on the article talk page.
    • If the article still does not meet the criteria, you can delist it. To do this, remove the article from the relevant list at good articles, remove the {{good article}} template from the article page, remove the {{GAR/link}} template from the article talk page, and update the {{Article history}} template on the article talk page (see example). Remove the GA assessment from project banners.


Good article reassessment
Community reassessment

When to use this process

  • Use the community reassessment process when you find an article listed as a good article that you don't believe satisfies the good article criteria and:
    • You would like to receive input from a community of editors who watch the good article reassessment page
    • You believe the decision to continue listing the article or to delist it should be the result of consensus, at the conclusion of a good article reassessment discussion (unless you believe a decision made by you is not likely to be controversial, then opt for individual reassessment instead)
  • Use the community reassessment process if:
    • You are not confident in your ability to assess the article
    • You are a major contributor to the article
    • You disagree with an earlier keep or delist decision
    • You are logged in (unless you are not a registered user, then you may try asking another editor to reassess the article)
    • You disagree with a fail at Wikipedia:Good article nominations (however, it is rarely helpful to request a community reassessment for this; it is usually simpler to renominate it)

Requesting reassessment during a content dispute or edit war is usually inappropriate. Wait until the article stabilizes and then consider reassessment. If significant instability persists for more than a couple of weeks, then reassessment on the grounds of instability may be considered.

How to use this process

  • The instructions for community reassessment are:
  1. Paste {{subst:GAR}} to the top of the article talk page. Do not place it inside another template. Save the page.
  2. Follow the second bold link in the template to create a community reassessment page (while the first bold link creates an individual reassessment page). The community reassessment page for this article is created as a subpage of the good article reassessment page.
  3. Leave an assessment on this page detailing your reasons for bringing the article to good article reassessment. List the problems you found with the article in comparison to the good article criteria. Save the page. A bot will add the assessment to the GA reassessment page.
  4. Transclude the community assessment on the article talk page as follows: Edit the article talk page and create a new section named "GA Reassessment". Paste in{{WP:Good article reassessment/ArticleName/n}}. Replace ArticleName with the name of the article and n with the subpage number of the reassessment page you just created. This will display the community reassessment discussion.
  5. Notify major contributing editors, relevant WikiProjects for the article, the nominator, and the reviewer. The {{GARMessage}} template may be used for notifications by placing {{subst:GARMessage|ArticleName|GARpage=n}} ~~~~ on user talk pages. Replace ArticleName with the name of the article and n with the subpage number of the reassessment page you just created.
  6. Wait for other editors to respond.
  7. After discussion, consensus must decide if the article has improved enough to meet the good article criteria. Any uninvolved editor may close the discussion (if needed, a request may be made at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Requests for closure).
  8. To close the discussion, edit the community reassessment page of the article and locate {{GAR/current}}. Replace it with {{subst:GAR/result|result=outcome}} ~~~~. Replace outcome with the outcome of the discussion (whether there was consensus and what action was taken) and explain how the consensus and action was determined from the comments. A bot will remove the assessment from the GA reassessment page, but it will have to be manually added to the current archive.
  9. The article either meets or does not meet the good article criteria:
    • If the article now meets the criteria, you can keep the article listed as GA. To do this, delete the {{GAR/link}} template from the article talk page and update the {{Article history}} template on the article talk page.
    • If the article still does not meet the criteria, you can delist it. To do this, remove the article from the relevant list at good articles, remove the {{good article}} template from the article page, remove the {{GAR/link}} template from the article talk page, update the {{Article history}} template on the article talk page (see example), and restore any project assessment values on the article talk page (check history to see what they were). A bot will remove and archive the assessment from the GA reassessment page.


Articles needing possible reassessmentEdit

The Good articles listed below would benefit from the attention of reviewers as to whether they need to be reassessed. In cases where they do, please open an individual or community reassessment and remove the {{GAR request}} template from the article talk page. In cases where they do not, remove the template from the article talk page.

The intention is to keep the above list empty most of the time. If an article is currently a featured article candidate, please do not open a reassessment until the FAC has been closed.

I am nominating this article for Good article reassessment for multiple reasons. The citation needed, page needed and Miscellaneous info tags alone would be more than enough, but there are also of couple a potential WP:COPYVIO Youtube refs (157 and 158), and the awards section doesn't talk about or source the specific awards in prose but rather just makes it dependent on a unsourced Succession box list. It may have met the criteria at the time it was promoted, but I don't think anyone predicted how even more popular this show got and thus there were probably less experienced editors infiltrating the article with unsourced info and trivia. Nonetheless, the issues are significant enough for a reassessment. 👨x🐱 (talk) 15:58, 13 May 2021 (UTC)[]

I agree in regards to the awards section- I came upon that recently and there is certainly no need to list predecessors or successors of when the show did win. Something similar to Whose Line Is It Anyway? (American TV series)#Awards and nominations would probably be more preferable. Would I be fine to go ahead and do that when I get a chance?

Changes to the article since the review have added an unreferenced section. Changes to the lede contain typographical errors (the last sentence of the lede is without a full stop).

There are at least two references to wordpress blogs. The section on France contains measurements for different cuts of fries but doesn't provide references. The list of "popular options" for dipping sauces in the Belgium section is unsourced. (Zigeuner sauce is served with schnitzel and not a dipping sauce for fries.) The content about vacuum fryers in the preparation section is unsourced. The last sentence of the South Africa section is unsourced.

I was very tempted to demote it unilaterally based on the self-published Wordpress references. However, I think it can be fixed if any editors are willing to go over it again. Spudlace (talk) 01:52, 6 June 2021 (UTC)[]

The biggest issue with this BLP article is the lack of verifiable sources for some of the content. An additional issue is that considerable amounts of content seem to be WP:UNDUE.

This 2008 promotion needs further attention now. There is uncited text scattered throughout, as well as datedness - the source for One in every 45 (2.2%) last-year users of BZP in New Zealand is classed as dependent upon it, although 97.9% of users said that "it would not be difficult to stop using legal party pills", and 45.2% of people who reported using both BZP and illegal drugs such as methamphetamine reported that they used BZP so that they did not have to use methamphetamine, which was perceived as more harmful. is about 15 years old and probably outdated, and the information in the legal issues section all seems to pre-date 2010.

Requesting a reassessment following observations from Yngvadottir. As the original GA assessor I feel very embarrassed and humbled that I missed the items that have been mentioned in the observation - which are very obvious to me when I look at it afresh. simongraham (talk) 11:15, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[]

The observation identified the following problems:

  • The section on equipment produced by Holbrook's company contained obvious OCR errors and its phrasing indicated that the source was an advertisement.
  • Repetition of information (the creation of the company and factory)
  • Uneven style (the Genealogy section, in particular, did not fit with the rest in style)
  • Unclear writing including burying the information on when he started his first school and simply puzzling sentences like "There were a hundred lyceums formed in the 1820s for crafts and mechanics of agricultural methods and geological surveys and further advanced the teaching system into other areas."
  • Clumsy integration of the information from references, such as "He developed a small factory for the manufacture of scientific apparatus" in the "17th Reunion" news source was "made a factory that was specifically designed to manufacture scientific apparatus" in the article.
  • The "Founder Yale Grad" source is the same text as part of the "17th Reunion" source; obviously some of these news reports have a common origin.

Yngvadottir has undertaken essential editing but I feel that the article needs to be reassessed by someone with more experience than me. The nominee, Doug Coldwell, was always helpful in the review and I feel has made this errors, as I did, in good faith. simongraham (talk) 11:22, 21 July 2021 (UTC)

NapoleonEdit

Article (edit | visual edit | history) · Article talk (edit | history) · WatchWatch article reassessment pageMost recent review

Previous GAR was 5 years ago, and there seem to be some significant issues to adress.

  • Article is too long, with a readable prose size of over 18,000 words, almost twice the recommended 10,000. As noted by Jehochman on the talk page, more content should be moved to subarticles and replaced by summary style.
  • The lead, too, is way too long, consisting of 5 lengthy paragraphs. The expositions of his wars and campaigns should probably somehow be condensed. There's also a balance issue, with the last paragraph extolling Napoleon's achievements - including a direct quote from a historian taking up more than half the paragraph - without mentioning any negatively viewed aspects of his legacy, e.g. reinstating slavery in the Caribbean. An additional paragraph focusing on the latter was recently added, though not in an optimal way, and has since been removed again. See also Talk:Napoleon#Lead: length and recent addition.
  • There are six {{citation needed}} tags, five of which date back all the way to 2016.
  • Reference errors as noted by Jehochman at Talk:Napoleon#Citations.

There might be additional issues that I'm unaware of. The ones above seem altogether sufficient to justify a GAR, especially for such a vital and prominent article. Lennart97 (talk) 14:38, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[]

  • You may be intrested in the discusion held before on the talk page, in wich i proposed a way to cut the lead to five shorter paragraphs, so far i have proposed it, but i would want to hear your opinion, and how to improve it. (we are talking about the lead). we talked about this. So far we need consensus, and focus on the problem itself.Nuevousuario1011 (talk) 17:33, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[]
    • I appreciate the proposal of a new lead. It's definitely shorter, that's good. Apart from needing a lot of copy editing for grammar/spelling, I'm not personally sure whether it's up to GA standards. Others' opinions on this are very welcome. Lennart97 (talk) 12:33, 23 July 2021 (UTC)[]
  • I was notified of this GAR - but I have no real interest, experience or expertise with the article,a dn am not currently writing on Wikipedia. However the concerns expressed are clearly something that someone should be able to fix in a matter of days, expending about the same amount of energy as a GAR would take. Why not fix it instead? By the way, excessive length is really a silly object to an article's quality, some topics need to be longer than the standard article to provide sufficient coverage of the relevant literature - without having read this one, I'd not be surprised if this is a such a topic. ·maunus · snunɐɯ· 12:09, 23 July 2021 (UTC)[]
    • I notified you only because you were involved in the previous GAR, hope you don't mind. I nominated the article for a community review because I'm not personally able to fix the article's problems, it's as simple as that. More specifically, per the guidelines at WP:GAR, I 1) don't believe satisfies the good article criteria and 2) [am] not confident in [my] ability to assess the article - thus a community reassessment seems like the correct choice.
    • You may have a point about the article length, but isn't that what spinning off content and using summary style in the main article is for? I'm pretty sure I've seen length considerations in GA reviews, anyway. Maybe Jehochman who first noted the length as an issue wants to comment on this as well. Lennart97 (talk) 12:33, 23 July 2021 (UTC)[]
  • . I hope the issues can be corrected within the scope of this review. Summary style is not hard to do, nor does it take very long. I fixed the worst reference issues. Some that remain may require an editor with more reference expertise than my level. @El C: might know who to contact. Jehochman Talk 14:26, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

A GAR request was asked for by Sun8908. There have been two prominent tags at the top of the article since November 2020 that need resolving. Given past issues with technical articles I am not going to comment on that aspect apart from to say that I find it very hard to follow this article (although that is true for most articles of this type). There are some areas where the prose can be tightened up (the refinement section is mostly proseline) and sourcing seems inadequate in other areas and relies too much on Request for Comments when it is used. There are external links embedded in the body and outside the lead no description of what URI actually is. Going through the community process due to past experiences with these types of articles.

  • Its a long time since I have been with RDF and OWL, most of which is done automatically now. The Lead is confusing to the general reader. Linking to FOAF in the lead is irrelevant. The language used in Conception and Refinement are relevant to W3C, the web consortium. If you are not familiar with IETF and the like, there can be quite the obfuscation taking place. There is a correction here, referring to the Semantic web, which is that (body) (instrument/code) that gives you and me a Uniform Resource Identifier. What will become of this, is unfolding as we write. There have been developments leaving Dublin Core in the dustbin of history right through to post Google adsense identifiers.
  • This article is simple enough for those used to working with the W3C and its frameworks, validation, resolving URI references and the like. XML namespaces do deserve an inclusion here, and its a wonder Open Graph Tags haven't been included.

Comments from Aoba47Edit

  • I will do a thorough read-through of this article later in the week. I did a brief scan through the article, and I did not find anything that would take away its GA status. I would remove the "Accolades" section and incorporate that information in the "Reception" section as I would avoid having a one-paragraph section. I would also rephrase this note, " In the end Mohan's name only appeared in the opening credits.", to simply, "Mohan's name only appeared in the opening credits.". I found the "In the end" part to be confusing as when I first read it, I thought you meant at the end of the film. Those are my only notes for now. I hope you are doing well and having a great end to your weekend! Aoba47 (talk) 00:00, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[]

    Are you done with the thorough read-through? Did you read any of Fowler's comments from the FAC and see if they must be addressed, or if he was just being overdemanding? I'll share with you pages of the book Pride of Tamil cinema, you please read them and tell me if I missed anything. The link is available only for 24 hours.

  • Apologies for the delay in my response. I will leave this for another editor. I am currently in the middle of a few other reviews and I plan on taking a break from Wikipedia once my current FAC is completed, and to be completely frank, I do not really want to read through Fowler's comments from the last FAC. Again, I will leave this for another editor. Apologies for that and best of luck with this. Aoba47 (talk) 00:58, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

Potential superpowersEdit

I am not sure what to make of this article. The title is overly broad as any country could be a potential superpower. Emerging superpower would be better, but still carry many of the same problems. The opening sentence is vague in its definition (use of speculated). It is pretty much presented in a list format. I am not sure if this topic can be written about without getting into original research. The talk page showcases this with the discussions on whether Japan and Brazil should still be included. Is China a super power or potential superpower? Is the USA still a superpower? It just seems to be open to so much interpretation and not many sources seem to discuss the topic in in an overarching way. As it is the sources used seem to hold vastly different views on what constitutes a superpower that there is no overall cohesion to many of the statements.

Anyway as to the criteria, the lead contains a lot of information not found in the article and lacks an overview of the actual body. It is contradictory, calling USA the only country that fulfils the criteria of a superpower (sourced to a reference that does not mention any criteria) followed by a citation overkill of sources saying how it is not sole superpower. The set up of the articles is a list of views of people that see the country or entity as a potential superpower, followed by those who don’t. The trouble with this set up is that it is giving the same weight to all opinions, which is not really justified (especially when the sources vary so much “real truth” to “New York times”. Obviously the tags need to be resolved (Citations, updates etc) for it to remain a good article.

I feel this needs to be judged by more editors than me so I am putting it through a community review. @Chidgk1: as the gar requester. @OccultZone: as the nominator. Aircorn (talk) 01:04, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Delist I have no idea who would benefit from reading this rubbish Chidgk1 (talk) 14:35, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Retain GA status There is absolutely no such issue with the article as it makes it certain that what really qualifies as 'potential superpower' through academia. We generally relied on the mainstream consensus to list who is a superpower and who would be a superpower, in line with WP:CONTEXTMATTERS. I think most of the issues cited here belong to talk page. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 06:26, 3 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Comment The original research original research, undue, more citations needed and outdated tags were removed with this edit. I don't feel these issues have been adequately addressed, especially in light of a GA review. Aircorn (talk) 00:49, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • It had to be removed in April, but I got busy elsewhere. The relevance tag regarding EU was wrongly added though. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 05:32, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Continue GA status: The article defined the term in a very concise and accurate manner. Speaking of facts, the U.S. is the only superpower in the world as of current. China and India are potential superpowers as they don't hold enough influence over the world. Russia and EU are other candidates but they are in decline. The article describes these facts accurately. I don't see any serious concerns with the article, and I think the tags at the top should be removed. --1990'sguy (talk) 22:47, 5 September 2021 (UTC)[]
    • Where is this definition? There is no introductory sentence or explanation on what makes something a superpower or for that matter a potential superpower. It just jumps straight into a section on China. Like I said this is more presented as a list than an article. Even as a list it does not do a very good job of defining what can and cannot be included. The above comment emphasises the original research problems, where editors are using their own judgement to decide what is a superpower, a potential superpower or no longer a superpower. The retain !votes are moot at this stage anyway as the article has citation needed tags and clearly fails WP:LEAD. Aircorn (talk) 00:26, 6 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Delist I haven't examined closely the individual country entries, but this article certainly fails 3a in that there is no discussion about what a potential superpower actually is. The very bare touching upon this topic in the lead was further soured by the first link I checked (Leika Kihara) having little to do with the sentence it supposedly supports. On criteria 4, I suspect the for and against article framing is also not a great way to structure each entry. CMD (talk) 13:30, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

Due to the GA status being almost or even over 10 years old and the person who rated it is banned, it should be time to review it again. I said that it could be a C or even a B but it is no longer GA.

2010 GA that has had an unsourced section tagged since 2018. I haven't looked too closely, but prose also seems like it may have promotionalism and excessive reliance on primary sources issues. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 19:34, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

This was my first Good Article, and I am here now to say it does not deserve the honor. This article is a piece of crap, and I do not presently have the desire or resources to fix it. To tell the truth, I've wanted to smite this article for a long time now, but never summoned up the willpower. It does not have many sources, many are not quality, and the prose is lacking in depth and quality. The reviewer, a sockpuppet of a banned editor, did not seem to care. And it has a "popular culture" section. –♠Vami_IV†♠ 12:36, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[]

  • I've nuked the "in popular culture" section out of existence, per comment above. Hog Farm Talk 18:33, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

Page was promoted in 2016. Late last year, User:MADA245 made a substantial edit [1] that was near enough a re-write. The edit was tagged for introducing a deprecated unreliable source, though I don't know which one. The major problem is that MADA's edit stripped the page of references, I will lose count of how many unsourced Sections there are, never mind paragraphs. Due to the political nature of the article, and especially because he presided over an economic crash, sources are paramount. There is a lot of original research and opinions in the legacy section. I have half a mind to manually revert the page back to the version before MADA turned up, though I don't know if that would be allowed or would be disputed. But the page as it is, is so bad that it's not a GA, if it was submitted new today it would be rejected. Unknown Temptation (talk) 15:33, 8 September 2021 (UTC)

This 2008 promotion now contains a large amount of uncited text, including some very large chunks from Aleutian06, who has a CCI open for repeated copyright violations. The lead mentions it being in the MacArthur Park historic district, while this is not expounded upon in the body, while the article is not clear if its in the Camden Expedition NRHP batch listing or not. The structure is weird, with the modern history before the early history. I just don't think this meets the criteria anymore. Hog Farm Talk 01:42, 19 September 2021 (UTC)
