Wikipedia:WikiProject Hip hop/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of the Hip hop WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's hip hop 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 Hip hop}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate subcategories of Category:Hip hop articles by quality and Category:Hip hop articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

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 the Hip hop 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.


Quality assessmentsEdit

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

{{WikiProject Hip hop|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 Hip hop articles)   FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Hip hop articles)   A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Hip hop articles)   GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Hip hop articles)   B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Hip hop articles)   C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Hip hop articles)   Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Hip hop articles)   Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Hip hop articles)   FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Hip hop articles)   List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Book (for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class Hip hop articles)   Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Hip hop articles)   Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Hip hop articles)   Disambig 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Hip hop articles)   Draft

Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Hip hop articles)   Project 
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Hip hop articles)   Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Hip hop articles)   NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Hip hop articles)   ??? 

After assessing an article's quality, comments on the assessment can be added either to the article's talk page or to the /Comments subpage which will appear as a link next to the assessment. Adding comments will add the article to Category:Hip hop articles with comments. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.

  4. A.J. Crew (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) -- Currently Unassessed. No edits made by me, but it's newly added to WP:Hip Hop. Thank you in advance. --Buspirtraz (talk) 00:22, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

  6. Junior M.A.F.I.A. (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) — Don't know when this was last assessed and I didn't make significant edits, but I feel this needs a reassessment with regard to importance - I feel like this fits better as "medium" importance, but I am not very familiar with the assessment process. -KaJunl (talk) 22:26, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

  8. I just expanded the article for Tierra Whack, and it's still missing a photo, but I'd love to see it assessed by the WP hip-hop community. EmilyvstheGorn (talk) 16:50, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
  9. Fresh Kid Ice - I have reworked the article and would love to have it assessed. Sundevilesq (talk) 19:58, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
  10. JPEGMafia is one of the hottest up-and-comers in the underground rap scene, didn't do any edits but believe his page should be moved from low>mid importance as he's recieved loads of critical acclaim. If "Most people involved in hip hop will be rated in this level(Mid)" i think he qualifies Gromte (talk) 12:08, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
