Article ratings

The project categorizes articles according to the WP 1.0 criteria:

  • Featured Articles: need little or no work
  • 'A' class: need a very small amount of work, followed by FA nomination
  • Good Articles: a little more work required
  • 'B' class: mostly complete and without major problems, but requires some further work to reach GA
  • 'C' class: a lot of work done, but is missing content, may contain irrelevant material
  • Start class: short, lacks details, key facts, illustration, etc.
  • Stub class: very short, lacking important details

Please place the {{WikiProject Kent}} template on the Talk page of all Kent related articles using the syntax

{{WikiProject Kent|class=|importance=}}

  • class can be (FA, A, GA, Articles have to be nominated and assessed to achieve GA status or higher) B, Start, Stub, (NA for Non-articles such as Templates or Disambiguation pages) or left unused for Unassessed
  • importance can be Top, High, Mid, Low, No or left unused for Unknown

This template will place articles within the Category:WikiProject Kent articles and also within the relevant categorys relating to quality and importance.

Note Please use the WP 1.0 criteria as shown on the instructions page and the importance grade relates to Kent and how useful the page is to an outsider researching the county, for example the Kent article could be rated "Top" for our grading, "Mid" for Englands grading and "No" for Scotlands.

Requests for reassessment

As per the discussion on the talk page, Stubs for reassessment (strike once reassessed):-

  • Substantial work has been done on St John's Jerusalem which hopefully should lift it above the current start class rating. Any feedback would be welcome, notwithstanding the substantial amendments to the content, layout and citations of the article. Stellas4lunch (talk) 20:30, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
  • Significant effort has been spent on Slade Green in Historic Kent. Please rate appropriately, but to be honest I suspect this page contains more research effort than some published books.
  • Coldred has been expanded past a stub.
