Student editors headed our wayEdit

Heads up -

Please add articles if more arise so we can keep an eye on them. --Tom (LT) (talk) 23:49, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Tom and Ian (Wiki Ed), student editors really shouldn't be sent to edit WP:GA and WP:FA articles (unless those articles are clearly in bad shape). I requested that they don't before, and this request was granted. I requested that they not edit an article that I would likely soon be bringing to WP:GA status and noted controversial aspects of things, and I soon got a response in a section I started at WP:Med. See Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine/Archive 125#A lot of student editing coming our way, where Helaine (Wiki Ed) states, "Students in the course will not be editing articles with discretionary tags, those that are in the process of being brought to Good or Featured Article status, or otherwise overly controversial. We usually support medical courses with no more than 35-40 students, but made an exception to this course due to our longstanding relationship with UCSF and its medical student Wikipedia editing initiatives. The course will overall be working on fewer articles as well, and of course we'll be helping them with their contributions. Thank you."
Although Helaine states "in the process of being brought to Good or Featured Article status", I don't think that the students touched GA and FA articles.
I don't see what improvements student editors can make to an article like the Human brain article, and it's big enough as I'm not keen on it being significantly expanded. We need to keep WP:SIZE in mind and create spin-off articles when necessary. Flyer22 Frozen (talk) 06:13, 4 September 2020 (UTC) Tweaked post. Flyer22 Frozen (talk) 06:23, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
Hi, I reached out to the instructor to remind them that students should not be working on articles with a GA status. Also, note that this class will only be working in their sandboxes this term and not making any live edits. Thanks. Helaine (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:57, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
Helaine (Wiki Ed), I meant to state this earlier, but thank you for that. Flyer22 Frozen (talk) 23:42, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
@Helaine (Wiki Ed), as Flyer22 points out, the student edits template has been added to Human brain again, despite your above assurance.--Tom (LT) (talk) 05:40, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Flyer22 and Tom (LT) I'm reaching out to the instructor again to remind them that students should not be assigning themselves GA articles to work on. We removed the previous ones and will remove these as well. Again, this course will not be working in the article main space. Thanks for letting us know.Helaine (Wiki Ed) (talk) 21:56, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks again, Helaine (Wiki Ed). Flyer22 Frozen (talk) 18:29, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Crown (Anatomy) ArticleEdit


I have been working on the crown (anatomy) article for my assignment and I was just wondering what class or grade it is currently on? Thank you in advance Physiotherapist1234 (talk) 00:26, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Physiotherapist1234 ! Thank you so, so much for your edits on Crown (anatomy). You've made it really comprehensive! I have moved it to a B-class to begin with (as this is all I have the power to do), but I think it is Good Article standard. I have nominated it for Good Article review. You've done an amazing job!
