inconsistency between articlesEdit

The article on the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer states that the aquifer's water contains unhealthy levels of mercury. The article on the New Jersey Pine Barrens/Pinelands says that the water is among the purest in the United States. Both cannot be right. Jcbowers18 (talk) 19:24, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Kent Manahan, NJN News anchorEdit

I created a draft for Kent Manahan, the former anchor of NJN News. Any help with sourcing would be appreciated. Thriley (talk) 02:28, 5 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2021 legislative districtsEdit

Suggest updating every municipality to add information on the 2021 state legislative districts since they will take effect for voting in fall 2023 and for representation starting with the 2024 legislative session. See Madison, New Jersey#Federal, state and county representation for an example. Bruce Esrig (talk) 05:24, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project-independent quality assessmentsEdit

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.
