The review department of the Arab world WikiProject is the project's main forum for conducting detailed reviews—both formal and informal—of particular articles within its scope.

The department hosts two forms of review internal to the project:

It also provides a convenient collection of Arab world articles currently undergoing formal review outside the project:

Peer review[edit]

Shortcuts:
Instructions
Requesting a review
  1. Add peer-review=yes to the {{WPARAB}} project banner at the top of the article's talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax).
  2. From there, click on the "request has been made" link that appears in the template. This will open a page to discuss the review of your article.
  3. Place === [[Name of nominated article]] === at the top.
  4. Below it, write your reason for nominating the article and sign by using four tildes (~~~~).
  5. Add {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} at the top of the list of peer review requests below.

If an article is listed for a second (or third, and so forth) peer review:

  1. Move (do not copy) the existing peer review subpage (Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Peer review/Name of nominated article) to an archive (Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Peer review/Name of nominated article/Archive 1).
  2. Follow the instructions for making a request above (editing Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Peer review/Name of nominated article, which will be a redirect to the archive, into a new request page).
  3. Be sure to provide a prominent link to the last archive at the top of the request (e.g. "Prior peer review here.").
Commenting

Everyone is encouraged to comment on any request listed here. To comment on an article, please add a new section (using ==== Your user name ====) for your comments, in order to keep multiple responses legible.

Archiving

Reviews should be archived after they have been inactive for some time, or when the article is nominated as a featured article candidate. To archive a review:

  1. Replace peer-review=yes with old-peer-review=yes in the {{WPARAB}} project banner template at the top of the article's talk page
  2. Move {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} from this page to the current peer review archive page.

A-Class review[edit]

Shortcut:
Instructions
Requesting a review

To request an A-Class review of an article:

  1. Add A-Class=current to the {{WPARAB}} project banner at the top of the article's talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax).
  2. From there, click on the "currently undergoing" link that appears in the template. This will open a page to discuss the status of the article.
  3. Place === [[Name of nominated article]] === at the top.
  4. Below it, write your reason for nominating the article and sign by using four tildes (~~~~).
  5. Add {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Assessment/Name of nominated article}} at the top of the list of A-Class review requests below.

If an article is nominated a second (or third, and so forth) time, either because it failed a prior nomination, or because it may no longer meet the standards and may thus need to be demoted:

  1. Move (do not copy) the existing review subpage (Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Assessment/Name of nominated article) to an archive (Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Assessment/Name of nominated article/Archive 1).
  2. Follow the instructions for making a request above (editing Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Assessment/Name of nominated article, which will be a redirect to the archive, into a new nomination page).
  3. Be sure to provide a prominent link to the last archive at the top of the nomination statement (e.g. "Prior nomination here.").

There is no limit on how quickly renominations of failed articles may be made; it is perfectly acceptable to renominate as soon as the outstanding objections from the previous nomination have been satisfied.

Commenting

Reviewers should keep the criteria for featured articles in mind when supporting or opposing a nomination. However, please note that (unlike actual featured articles) A-Class articles are not expected to fully meet all of the criteria; an objection should indicate a substantive problem with the article. In particular, objections over relatively minor issues of writing style or formatting should be avoided at this stage; a comprehensive, accurate, well-sourced, and decently-written article should qualify for A-Class status even if it could use some further copyediting.

Closing and archiving

Reviews will be closed by one of the project members after four days have elapsed. An article will generally be promoted to A-Class if (a) it has garnered at least three endorsements from uninvolved editors, and (b) there are no substantive objections indicative of a major flaw in the article.

To close a review, coordinators should:

  1. Change the A-Class=current in the {{WPARAB}} project banner at the top of the article's talk page to either A-Class=pass (if the nomination is successful) or A-Class=fail (if it is not).
  2. Move the {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Arab world/Assessment/Name of nominated article}} from the list of requests below to the current archive page.
  3. Add {{subst:archive top}} and {{subst:archive bottom}} to the top and bottom of the review subpage, respectively.

Royal Oman Police[edit]

Unassessed. I ahve made the article taking stringent precautions so as to adhere to the best practices. I wish to see the article being given a FA rating, It has all the information needed ina precise manner and mantains neutrality. However I wish to see if others feel the same! --Pranav (talk) 14:07, 20 March 2011 (UTC)



Byzantine-Arab Wars[edit]

In my opinion quite a good article from our Early Muslim Military history task force. Wandalstouring 13:07, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

  • Support even though IMO it needs more cits. Kyriakos 05:24, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Weak support - a bit unreferenced, especially "Byzantine resurgence" and "Conclusion" sections. --Eurocopter tigre 12:14, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Weak support 34 references are quite enough as a minimum. Some NPOV is needed. Sometimes it seems clear that it was written from a Byzantine POV. Examples: loss of southern Italian territories can mean gain of Southern Italian territories depending from where you see it. Conflicts with the Caliphate however continued between the 800s and 1169 can mean the same thing if we would say simply Conflicts with the Caliphate however continued between the 800s and 1169... -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 16:07, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
