The drive has ended.

WikiProject Biography Summer 2007 Assessment Drive is a three-month long effort to reduce the backlog of unassessed biography articles from 113,385 as of June 1, 2007 to 0 articles by September 1, 2007. It may seem like a long journey but with the right amount of help it can be done! We would love to have your help and you will be generously rewarded for your efforts!

This will be the second assessment drive this project has had. The Spring 2007 Assessment Drive was a month-long drive and reduced the number of unassessed articles from 135,345 to 91,021. The goal of this drive is to eliminate the backlog of unassessed articles. If you have any questions or comments please direct them to the talk page.

Progress on assessing articles[edit]

The number of unassessed articles will decrease as a result of this drive, but may increase as a result of articles being tagged with the {{WPBiography}} project banner with the class parameter not filled in. However, the number of assessed articles will increase as values are entered into the class parameters. The number of articles assessed during this drive is the total number of articles assessed on the statistic date minus the number of assessed articles on the previous statistic date as indicated by the Biography articles by quality statistics. The bot that updates this runs every other day, more or less. If you see that this table needs updating be bold and update it yourself. If you want to run the bot, go here. It is very slow though and the server will likely cut you off since the job takes so long.

Instructions[edit]

Have you ever assessed an article? If not go to Wikipedia:WikiProject_Biography/Assessment and read up on how to assess an article for this project. If you would like to save yourself a lot of time and easily keep track of how many articles you've assessed you should consider getting Outriggr's script. It has instructions on using it and getting it set up. To keep your counter of articles assessed accurate make sure you don't click the grade you want to give an article more than once, since the script counts how many times you've clicked one of the grade links. Also don't click the count of articles you have assessed. It will reset the counter back to zero. While doing this make sure you give every article the grade it deserves. If you're ready to start assessing articles, put your name down and list what section(s) you're going to do. Good Luck!

Note: Please remember that assessing any article above B-Class (that is GA, A, and FA class) must first receive nomination and pass the criteria of its relative class before they can achieve that status. You can find the nomination and review in its talk page (or its archives).

Want to open 99 links at once? Then get Linky. You must have Firefox, obviously, to install a Firefox add-on. Just install it and select the links you want to open. Right-click them and select open selected links in tabs. It's that simple.

Other Information[edit]

If you are unhappy with a particular assessment please go to the assessor's talk page and ask them to review their assessment again.

List Class? Don't use this class. Our template doesn't really accept it and we've decided to just assess lists as normal articles.

What's Been Done So Far[edit]

The following is a list of sections, showing whether or not they have been completed. A section is considered completed if it has been reduced to zero articles at some point during the assessment drive, and has therefore become a simple maintenance task for WikiProject Biography. When a section has been completed cross it out and put Complete by it. Just because a section has been considered complete doesn't mean it is complete. These should be the sections you should check up on often to make sure they stay near 0. If a section is getting out of hand again then remove the "Complete", or, better yet, clean up that section yourself.
