  • I am not a member of this project and do not wish to be, but would ask that the article Wealden iron industry be reassessed and rerated following its recent revision. Peterkingiron 14:46, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Ashurst Wood - I've done a lot of editing to this article and it's currently rated as a stub. It definitely needs reassessing and as I've made a large set of changes it would be more appropriate if somebody else assessed it. Thanks ●BillPP (talk|contribs) 00:32, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Done MortimerCat (talk) 23:37, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Kingston near Lewes has been assessed on the UK Geography Wikiproject, but not Wikiproject Sussex. Would it be a good candidate? Autarch (talk) 20:23, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Kingston was subsequently added. MortimerCat (talk) 12:23, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Hollingbury has been expanded and images added since it was last rated as a stub. Please could you reassess. Hzv5wk (talk) 21:02, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Hassocks is currently unassessed and having a particular interest in the village I would be grateful if someone could have a look at it for me. Many thanks. Paste (talk) 08:50, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Burgess Hill has not been rated in a fairly long time and it would seem that most of the things of the to do list have been done, if not fully to a notably greater extent. Please could you reassess. Curtis31992 (talk) 14:05, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Cowdray House I've just put a significant amount of history into this article, I don't think it is still a stub, as such would be grateful for someone to re-assess it. I've removed the stub assessment so it's currently unassessed. JonEastham (talk) 15:00, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Could Littlehampton Redoubt and Shoreham Redoubt please be reassessed? I have added headings, text, images, references and a bibliography to both pages. Are they still stubs? Thank you. Kinnerton (talk) 20:31, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Done.--Charles (talk) 23:12, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
I think almost certainly.--Charles (talk) 21:59, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Just came across this, Sussex is rated as start class with a notice saying that it lacks sufficient references and/or adequate inline citations, yet has 137 inline citations and has multiple, detailed sections. Could this be reassessed? Thanks.  Seagull123  Φ  19:55, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Could someone look at Fulking - I think it's moved beyond a stub, and is now perhaps a 'B'. Topo122 (talk) 16:53, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
  • History of Sussex is currently listed as C-class, but I feel like it should be much higher than that - what do others think?  Seagull123  Φ  19:58, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
Done.----Dorkinglad (talk) 19:17, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

WikiProject Sussex (Rated Stub-class, Low-importance)
 This article is within the scope of WikiProject Sussex, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of Sussex on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
Stub This article has been rated as Stub-Class on the project's quality scale.
 Low  This article has been rated as Low-importance on the project's importance scale.
This article lacks sufficient references and/or adequate inline citations

(the |class= parameter can also be set to Start or C). This project can only rate an article Stub, Start or C. Higher grades involve external input such as peer reviews.

  • Stub - An article with a single line or paragraph.
  • Start - An article that has grown beyond the single paragraph, and has started to be split into sections.
  • C - An article that appears to finished growing. There are no obvious gaps in information, and there are plenty of citations.

When creating a new banner, the importance will probably be low (possibly mid), on the assumption that all important articles will have already been included. The unref=yes should be removed if there a are no referencing issues in the article.

If the article is already associated with another project, multiple projects may be listed using the {{WikiProjectBannerShell}} template.
