Main Talk Assessment Brussels
naming conventions

Welcome to the assessment department of the Belgium WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Belgium related articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Belgium}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Belgium-related articles by quality and Category:Belgium-related articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Frequently asked questions edit

How can I get my article rated?
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Belgium WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.
Why didn't the reviewer leave any comments?
Unfortunately, due to the volume of articles that need to be assessed, we are unable to leave detailed comments in most cases. If you have particular questions, you might ask the person who assessed the article; they will usually be happy to provide you with their reasoning.
What if I don't agree with a rating?
You can list it in the section for assessment requests below, and someone will take a look at it. Alternately, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
Aren't the ratings subjective?
Yes, they are, but it's the best system we've been able to devise; if you have a better idea, please don't hesitate to let us know!

If you have any other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.

Label Criteria Examples
Top Core topics about Belgium. Generally, these topics are sub-articles of the main Belgium article, vital for the understanding of Belgium or extremely notable to people outside of Belgium. This category should stay limited to approximately 100 members. Biographies should be limited to the top one or two Belgian people in a particular field or persons of the greatest historical importance Bruges, Hergé
High Topics that are very notable within Belgium, and well-known outside of it, and can be reasonably expected to be included in any print encyclopedia. Battle of Waterloo, Belgian literature, Kortrijk
Mid Topics that are reasonably notable on a national level within Belgium without necessarily being famous or very notable internationally, including smaller towns Eupen, Beguinage, King Baudouin Stadium
Low Topics of mostly local interest or those that are only included for complete coverage or as examples of a higher-level topic; peripheral or trivial topics or topics that have only a limited connection to Belgium Antwerpsche Diamantkring, Denmark at the 1920 Summer Olympics
