Navigation pages edit

Just following up on this issue, which is still presenting problems. There was a suggestion by User:Bkonrad that we could treat SIAs (with links but no content) and disambiguation pages as one by considering them as "navigation pages". What do people think about introducing this as an umbrella term and classifying accordingly? The rationale is that these types of pages have a common purpose which is to guide readers to the article they are looking for. Real SIAs (with content and references) will be properly treated as Lists, but pages like Hermann (name) would be classified as a navigation page. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:00, 24 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

The core of the issue is that pages like Hermann (name) are not disambiguation pages, despite some superficial similarities. It is a list of people who share a name, not a list of articles that could be titled as "Hermann".
Also how will Real SIAs (with content and references) be distinguished from other similar pages? Is it a manual assessment? If so, what is being gained? olderwiser 10:10, 24 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Content assessment frequency edit

How often are articles graded and do they vary between articles? Theobrad (talk) 12:36, 29 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

do they vary between genres/topics/categories Theobrad (talk) 12:39, 29 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Theobrad: Articles ought to be assessed for importance either when the WikiProject banner is added, or soon after. Some get left unassessed for years. Once assessed, it should rarely change unless something significant happens - for example, a politician who had been serving at a purely local level might be elected to a national position, following which their importance for politics might be raised from low/mid to mid/high.
Articles are assessed for quality (class) whenever somebody feels like it, provided that the old and new classes are both within the scale unassessed/stub/start/C/B. But for GA/A/FA, you need to make your case for regrading, one person can't do it alone.
Unless the same person carries out all of the assessments, there will be variation (one person's Stub-Class might be another's Start-Class); but the higher up the quality scale you go, the variation should be lessened - this is particularly so of FA-Class, where several people carry out the assessment together. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:05, 30 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Redrose64 Thank you for your response. The reason I ask is that I am a paid Wikipedia editor and I have been working for a while on the 'Smart City' article. My work is nearly done and I am not under any obligation to change the rating of the article. However, from my personal interest in the communication of smart city information to the general public and to see the article be improved, I was wondering when/if an article like this might be reviewed again?

I would say that you should not assess the article yourself, but may request assessment by leaving a request at one or more of: Wikipedia:WikiProject Urban studies and planning/Assessment#Requests for assessment; Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Artificial Intelligence; Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Systems; Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Computer science. Note that only the first of these has a formal request procedure - for the others you should start a new thread on the talk page that I linked. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 17:54, 30 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
thank you very much! I wasn't considering doing that myself :) Theobrad (talk) 18:02, 30 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

B-class when citations are wrong? edit

Visa Requirements for US citizens has a B rating, but I keep finding citations completely irrelevant to the detail they claim to be supporting. 伟思礼 (talk) 05:15, 11 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@伟思礼: There is no such article. In any case, if you feel that an article's rating is inconsistent with its content, you should bring that matter up at the talk page of the article itself. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 09:56, 11 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
