Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Fictional characters! The department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's fictional character 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 Fictional characters}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Fictional character articles by quality, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist (Index · Statistics · Log).

Frequently asked questionsEdit

How can I get my article rated?
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of WikiProject Fictional characters 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.


Quality assessmentEdit

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Fictional characters}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Fictional characters|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class fictional character articles)   FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class fictional character articles)   A

C (adds articles to Category:C-Class fictional character articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class fictional character articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class fictional character articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class fictional character articles)   FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class fictional character articles) List

For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class fictional character articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class fictional character articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class fictional character articles) Draft
