Project-independent quality assessments


Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

Proposed for deletion (PROD): iGaming Business


FYI, the article iGaming Business has been proposed for deletion (WP:PROD). The first sentences summarize the subject thusly:

  • "iGaming Business is a business-to-business (B2B) magazine focusing on the online gambling industry. It launched in 2003, and has two sister magazines - iGaming Business North America and iGB Affiliate."

The nominator wrote this summary of their concerns:

  • "No indication of notability"

If you agree or disagree with deletion, there are instructions on the deletion notice for what to do.

Crypto Casino articles


Hi Everyone, I have started drafting articles about the early crypto casinos Bitzino and Satoshi Dice. If any of you could review my drafts to ensure I've accurately represented the topic, I'd be super grateful. Since I don't have a background in cryptocurrency or gaming, having a few extra sets of eyes would be very helpful.
