Wikipedia:WikiProject Hinduism/Peer review

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The peer review department of the Hinduism WikiProject conducts peer review of articles on request. The primary objective is to encourage better articles by having contributors who may not have worked on articles to examine them and provide ideas for further improvement.

The peer review process is highly flexible and can deal with articles of any quality; however, requesting reviews on very short articles may not be productive, as there is little for readers to comment on.

All reviews are conducted by fellow editors—usually members of the Hinduism WikiProject. While there is a general intent to expand this process to allow for review by subject experts, the preparations for this are not yet complete.


Requesting a review[edit]

  1. Place {{WPHinduismPeerreview}} at the top of the article's talk page.
  2. From there, click on the "request has been made" link that appears in the new 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 Hinduism/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} at the top of the list of requests on this page.

Responding to a request[edit]

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


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 {{WPHinduismPeerreview}} with {{WPHinduismOldpeerreview}} at the top of the article's talk page
  2. Move {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Hinduism/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} from this page to the current archive page.



The article has undergone expansion and referencing in the last month. --Redtigerxyz 13:35, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams[edit]

I have added the following sections to the article: Legislative background behind the establishment & functioning of TTD, current office bearers, schemes of TTD for devotees, social activities of TTD. In case there is any additional information required, please let me know.Kalyan 10:27, 23 April 2007 (UTC) Wikipedia:WikiProject Hinduism/Peer review/Hanuman

Kaśmir Śaivism[edit]

I think this is a B class article that could benefit from the suggestions of interested editors.

Sathya Sai Baba movement[edit]

I have significantly improved sourcing and I think it is no longer a start class article. This article will be abandoned by its only major contributor (user:Andries) who will probably receive a topic ban from the arbcom. I am looking for a replacement. Andries 17:08, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Advaita Vedanta[edit]

I think this is a decent article, the subject is important enough to become a featured article. I'd like to see us bring it to FA status.TheRingess (talk) 15:13, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
