This project requires a full Quality Scale[edit]

Currently, this project uses the Version 1.0 Editorial Team bot for article statistics. This requires our Project Template to have a Full Quality scale. However, it is appropriate for this Project to limit the classes used and monitored by the Assessment Department. Therefore it has become necessary for the project create a Custom mask for Quality class. The Custom mask for WikiProject Lists limits class to FL, List, and Stub for articles, uses all appropriate predefined Quality classes for articles in the Wikipedia:Namespace, updates BLANK classes to the List class, and automatically changes incorrect Quality class codes.

Assessment Cat[edit]

In 2007 User:BetacommandBot began creating Categories for this project using the word List. The unfortunate result is that our Assessment_Cat code does not say |ASSESSMENT_CAT= WikiProject Lists articles as in other projects. Instead it says |ASSESSMENT_CAT= List articles. So our assessment page follows suit and is titled List/Assessment as a work-around. This should be fixed in the future, and Categories renamed and redirected; but too tired now.

Questions and suggestions[edit]

Why is the |auto=yes parameter required for this banner? All the parameter actually does is display a message if an article is rated Stub-Class to say that it has been assessed by a bot; this doesn't seem particuarly useful or relevant in the context of this banner.

Also, any thoughts on using SL-Class (i.e. "Stub List") as opposed to Stub-Class? This little-known assessment grade is used by at least one other project and would seem to be rather apt for this project. PC78 (talk) 12:38, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Another thing: the assessment page for this project states, "This Project includes Image, Template, Portal, Disambiguation, Category and Project classes when appropriate". With the exception of Disambig-Class, this is not true. There is no support for these other classes in the banner's custom mask, so they all default to List-Class.

This last point has been resolved. PC78 (talk) 15:50, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

The |auto= parameter is invoking Template:Auto, which is a redirect to Template:WikiProject Automobiles. However, it could be that it only shows while the page is being previewed. It appears that Template:WikiProject Animation had a similar problem. Senator2029let's talk” 17:13, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
