Article qualityEdit

If a rating is not assigned when the {{WPLinux}} is added, the article will be filed in Category:Unassessed Linux articles by default. If assessing the article, the class should be assigned according to the grading scheme. A list of Unassessed and In dispute articles can be discussed at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Linux/Assessment.

Assessment requestsEdit

If you have encountered an article that you believe has been sufficiently improved, please list it here and a reviewer will reassess the article and leave comments.

Guidelines (quality)Edit

  • Articles that are at Stub or Start-Class can be reassessed for improvement to Start or B-Class.
  • B-Class articles cannot be reassessed for improvement to A-Class until it has been subjected to wider peer review or Good Article/Featured Article noms.
  • Articles of any class except GA and FA-Class can be reassessed for a decline in quality
