Wikipedia:WikiProject Hong Kong/Assessment

Welcome to the Assessments Page of the WikiProject Hong Kong. This department assesses the quality of Wikipedia's Hong Kong articles. The article ratings are also used within the project 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 {{WPHK}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Hong Kong articles by quality and Category:Hong Kong articles by importance, 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 the WikiProject Hong Kong community 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.


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

|class= FA/A/GA/B/C/Start/Stub/FL/List/Cat/Dab/Image/Portal/Redirect/Template
|importance= Top/High/Mid/Low
|attention= yes/no

Quality scaleEdit

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Hong Kong articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

Importance scaleEdit

Top importance articles provide an over encompassing view on Hong Kong.
Low importance articles are those that generally meeting local notability guidelines. Any notable articles not described in the table below is considered low importance. A low importance article is not the same as a bad or unnecessary article. But in some cases there is more value to merging it under the umbrella of a larger article, as this will enhance both topics.
Importance is not necessarily related to the popularity of an article and it should not make these articles less of a priority.
