Project-independent quality assessments edit

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.

RfC - Swiss Federal Councillors Infobox edit

In which of the following ways should infoboxes for Swiss Federal Councillors be organized-

A - Include separate sections for President, Vice President and Federal Councillor (currently used; see Alain Berset and Viola Amherd);
B - Include only one section for "Swiss Federal Councillor" with lines to show years served as President/Vice President (see this old revision [1]); or
C - Same as option B, but include separate sections for the incumbent President and Vice President (listing only the current term) . estar8806 (talk) 17:47, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

I personally prefer option C as I feel this gives the best of both worlds. For older terms, it shows that the President and Vice President are really just firsts-among-equals, while also making it easy for readers to see who the incumbent President and Vice President are. estar8806 (talk) 18:20, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

(invited by the bot) I think that those who come here from a broadly broadcast RFC are not going to be "deep in" enough to answer this meaningfully. But I'm against any project RFC that would tend to claim or look to be multi-article authoritative or a mandate. Maybe you should reword as "which is preferred".

State Secretariat for International Finance edit

  FYI

I draftified State Secretariat for International Finance; it's probably notable but needs a lot of work. I'll do what I can for it, but I figured I'd notify this project to get more attention on it. Edward-Woodrow :) [talk] 20:49, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

Women in Green's 5th Edit-a-thon edit

 

Hello WikiProject Switzerland:

WikiProject Women in Green is holding a month-long Good Article Edit-a-thon event in October 2023!

Running from October 1 to 31, 2023, WikiProject Women in Green (WiG) is hosting a Good Article (GA) edit-a-thon event with the theme Around the World in 31 Days! All experience levels welcome. Never worked on a GA project before? We'll teach you how to get started. Or maybe you're an old hand at GAs – we'd love to have you involved! Participants are invited to work on nominating and/or reviewing GA submissions related to women and women's works (e.g., books, films) during the event period. We hope to collectively cover article subjects from at least 31 countries (or broader international articles) by month's end. GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!
