Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Comedy! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Comedy related articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

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

Frequently asked questions[edit]

How can I get my article rated? 
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles? 
Any member of the Comedy WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.
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.
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.
Aren't the ratings subjective? 
Yes, they are, 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!

If you have any other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.

Instructions[edit]

Quality assessment[edit]

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

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

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

Book (for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class Comedy articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Comedy articles) Category page Category 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Comedy articles)  Draft 
File (for files; adds pages to Category:File-Class Comedy articles)  File 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Comedy articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Comedy articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Comedy articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Comedy articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Comedy articles)  ??? 

Quality scale[edit]

The scale for assessments is defined at Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Assessment. Articles are divided into the following categories.

Importance assessment[edit]

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Comedy}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Comedy|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project:

Top (adds articles to Category:Top-importance Comedy articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Comedy articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Comedy articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Comedy articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Comedy articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Comedy articles  ??? 

The importance parameter should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Importance scale[edit]

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of Comedy.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

Requesting an assessment[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below. Please note that an importance rating may not be given in some cases if the reviewer is unfamiliar with the subject.

If you assess an article, please strike it off using <s>Strike-through text</s> so that other editors will not waste time going there too. Thanks!
