What you can accomplish here

This process is to find out whether your article is currently assessed at the correct quality level (Stub, Start, C, B) and correct importance (Low, Mid, High, Top). If you have significantly expanded an article and it is rated below B class, or if you feel the rating is otherwise incorrect, then please feel free to list it below.

What you can NOT accomplish here

  • If you are interested in more extensive comments on an article, contact the volunteers at WT:PSYCH or list it at Peer review instead.
  • If you think the article is particularly well written, then you can nominate it as a possible Good article or even as a possible Featured article.
