Brachiocephalic arteryEdit

May I ask you something? Recently I edited brachiocephalic artery, and I am wondering how can I change start class of this page. --LR0725 (talk) 01:44, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi LR0725! Thank you for your work on the article. I've reassessed it up to C class - it is close to B class with some minor copyediting to follow WP:MEDMOS and other manuals. For article assessment, some just edit the talk page directly. However, if you are interested in article assessment in future, I can recommend installing Rater, a tool for article assessment. I use it very frequently. All the best, here and at other projects! Bibeyjj (talk) 08:08, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
@Bibeyjj: Thanks! This answer is what I searched for. Does making page B-class need some consensus or discuss with other project members? LR0725 (talk) 08:23, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
LR0725, you probably found your answers in regard to this ages ago, but for the record, the process and standards for the various grades are laid out at WP:ASSESS. With regard to the lower grades, there is no firm requirement to establish a consensus for a new grade beforehand: although in theory this determination is as subject to WP:LOCALCONSENSUS and WP:BRD as any other aspect of the article, I can't say as I can recall ever seeing an edit war regarding an article's rank even once--though I'm sure they must happen rarely. But for the most part, on lower-traffic articles, that haven't gotten enough attention to move up past C-class, most people just probably wouldn't even notice an edit to the grade, so you are somewhat in your discretion. In any event, the guideline is of course a good place to start for getting an idea of what broader community consensus is, regarding what should appear in an article that has been rating as meeting a certain threshold. And as the guideline also details, there is a very drastic shift to the other end of the spectrum for the two highest classes, with a robust formal process for both classes that is expected to be met before upgrading the designation.

Stroke volume articleEdit

I created a discussion[1] at Talk:Stroke volume about whether "The stroke volumes for each ventricle are generally equal, both being approximately 70 mL in a healthy 70-kg man." and corresponding text should be changed to "The stroke volumes for each ventricle are generally equal, both being approximately 70 mL in a healthy 70-kg person." in the stroke volume article for gender neutrality. I've also provided a few resources in the discussion. I started the discussion after an editor objected to the sentence being sex-specific. The discussion has now moved into the topic of including people of multiple gender identities and intersex people. If any member here thinks they can be helpful on the topic, please comment there.

About importanceEdit

Fascial compartments of arm page is now rated as mid-class importance, but now anterior and posterior compartment is merged into that and both were high-class importance. I think fascial compartments of arm should be rated in high-class importance article, and want to know if there is any other opinion. --LR0725 (talk) 16:48, 28 July 2022 (UTC)

Hi LR0725! I would agree with rating this article as high importance - as the major distinction of where muscles are located in the arm and what their general function is, this is probably worth the rating. Bibeyjj (talk) 08:13, 29 July 2022 (UTC)
Hi Bibeyjj. I checked that page about individual compartment is rated as high-class(e.g. anterior compartment of leg), and page about compartements of specific region is rated as mid-class(e.g. fascial compartments of leg). However, in this case, as individual compartment pages are merged to fascial compartments of arm page, this page should be rated as high-class. Thank you for your opinion.
