Wikipedia:WikiProject Piracy/Assessment

Assessment guidelinesEdit

The Piracy WikiProject assessment process helps showcase the Project's best pages and give pointers toward areas in need of further work. The system is based on a letter scheme which reflects principally how complete the article is, though the content and language quality are also factors. The assessment is done using parameters in the {{WikiProject Piracy}} project banner; this places articles in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Piracy articles by quality, which serve as the foundation for this automatically generated worklist. Two levels, GA and FA, are not assessments that can be assigned simply by a project member. These refer to external judgments of article quality made at WP:GA and WP:FA.

There is a separate scale for rating articles for importance or priority, which is unrelated to the quality scale outlined above. Unlike the quality scale, the priority scale varies based on the project scope. See also a proposed template at {{Importance Scheme}}.

Assessment scaleEdit

Importance scaleEdit

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of Micronations.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.
