Wikipedia:WikiProject Historic sites/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment area for WikiProject Historic sites. This section focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles related to historic sites. 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 Historic sites}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Historic sites articles by quality and Category:Historic sites articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.


An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Historic sites}} project banner on its talk page:

Syntax: {{WikiProject Historic sites|class=|importance=}}


Once tagged an article needs to be assessed using the criteria listed below. The talk page of the article should be tagged with {{WikiProject Historic sites|class=(assessment)|importance=}}.

Quality scaleEdit


This page is a guide to assessing the importance levels of articles that are maintained by WikiProject Historic sites. There are four levels of importance that give an indication as to the priority of articles to this WikiProject, as opposed to Wikipedia as a whole.

The importance levels are Top, High, Mid and Low, and are assigned by adding |importance = level to the project banner, {{WikiProject Historic sites|class=|importance=}}, on the article's talk page. A DRAFT guide to the type of articles that should be placed in each category is given below, but these are not hard and fast rules. Any individual article should be assessed on its own merits. If you are unable to decide which importance level to use, please go to the WP:Historic sites talk page and leave a message there.


Bot generated tables that cover the assessment processes of WikiProject Historic sites are listed below. The stats are generated automatically every 2 – 7 days, but they can be updated manually by entering Historic sites (and replacing Foobar) into the Category box here.
