This is the WikiProject Cell Signaling assessment summary page. See WP:1.0 and WP:WVWP for more information.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Cell Signaling}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Cell signaling articles by quality and Category:Cell signaling articles by importance, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.


1. How do I add an article to the WikiProject? 
Just add {{WikiProject Cell Signaling}} to the talk page; there's no need to do anything else.
2. Someone put a {{WikiProject Cell Signaling}} template on an article, but it's not a Cell signaling related topic. What should I do? 
Because of the large number of articles we deal with, we occasionally make mistakes and add tags to articles that shouldn't have them. If you notice one, feel free to remove the tag, and optionally leave a note on the talk page of this department (or directly with the person who tagged the article). If User:WatchlistBot did it, you can add it to the exclusion list for the project (User:WatchlistBot/Cell Signaling to make sure that it will not be retagged again.
3. What is the purpose of the article ratings? 
The objective of the rating system is twofold. First, it allows the project to monitor the quality of articles in our subject areas, and to prioritize work on these articles. Second, the ratings will be used by the Wikipedia 1.0 project to compile a "released version" of Wikipedia that can be distributed to readers. Please note, however, that these ratings are meant for the internal use of the project, and do not imply any official standing within Wikipedia as a whole.
4. How can I get an article rated? 
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
5. Who can assess articles? 
Any member of the Cell Signaling WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
6. Why didn't the reviewer leave any comments? 
Unfortunately, due to the volume of articles that need to be assessed, we are unable to leave detailed comments in most cases. If you have particular questions, you might ask the person who assessed the article; they will usually be happy to provide you with their reasoning.
8. What if I don't agree with a rating? 
You can list it in the section for assessment requests below, and someone will take a look at it. Alternately, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
9. Aren't the ratings subjective? 
Yes, they are (see, in particular, the disclaimers on the importance scale), but it's the best system we've been able to devise; if you have a better idea, please don't hesitate to let us know!
10. How can I keep track of changes in article ratings? 
A full log of changes over the past thirty days is available here. If you are just looking for an overview, however, the monthly statistics may be more accessible.
11. What if I have a question not listed here? 
If your question concerns the article assessment process specifically, please refer to the discussion page; for any other issues, you can go to the main project discussion page.


An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Cell Signaling}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Cell Signaling|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Quality scale for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class Cell signaling articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Cell signaling articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Cell signaling articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Cell signaling articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Cell signaling articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Cell signaling articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Cell signaling articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Cell signaling articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Cell signaling articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Cell signaling articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Cell signaling articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
File (for files; adds pages to Category:File-Class Cell signaling articles)  File 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Cell signaling articles)  Portal 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Cell signaling articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Cell signaling articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Cell signaling articles)  ??? 

The following values may be used for the importance parameter:

The parameter is not used if an article's class is set to NA, and may be omitted in those cases. The importance should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Articles for which a valid importance is not provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Cell signaling articles. The importance should be assigned according to the importance scale below.
