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 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 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.

  1. 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)Reply[reply]
