About Us

The History Assessment Department, supported by WikiProject History, finds historical articles for the first time and rates them on quality and importance scales. A template is then placed on the article's talk page stating that the article is within the scope of WikiProject History and displaying what rating the article has been given.

Historical articles can be found in Category:History and its subcategories.

Usage[edit]

The following is the full syntax used for placing this template on a talk page:

{{WikiProject History
|class=
|importance=
|attention=
|auto=
|needs-infobox=
|small=
}}

Parameters[edit]

  • class – a rating of the article's quality; see the quality scale for more details.
  • importance - a rating of the article's quality; see the importance scale for more details.
  • attention – "yes" if the article is extremely low quality and requires the attention of experienced editors.
  • auto - used by bots if the article has been assessed automatically
  • needs-infobox - "yes" if the article requires an infobox
  • small – "yes" if the banner should be rendered in its miniature size; this should be used sparingly and only on crowded talk pages for the time being.
