Codes and meanings[edit]

Article progress grading scheme[edit]

For a more detailed description of the different grades, see {{Grading scheme}}.

Status Template Meaning of Status
Needed {{Needed-Class}} The article hasn't been started yet. You can help by creating it.
Merge {{Merge-Class}} The article is a merge candidate, as it probably should not stand on its own. Remarks should clarify suggested merge target. If multiple articles are to be merged into one, or if the issue is complicated, it is advised to list it at the end of this article.
Stub {{Stub-Class}} The article is either a very short article or a stub that will need a lot of work to bring it to A-Class level.
Start {{Start-Class}} The article has a decent amount of content, but it is still very weak in certain areas (remarks should clarify where).
B {{B-Class}} The article is "almost there" but it may be missing one of the following: references, balance of content, NPOV or an important section. Alternatively, the English may need a comprehensive rewrite to make it flow.
A-Class article A {{A-Class}} The article provides a well-written and complete description of the topic, as described in How to write a Great Article. It includes a well-written introduction to the topic, and an appropriate series of headings to break up the article. It should have sufficient external literature references, preferably from the "hard" literature rather than websites. It should be well illustrated, with no copyright problems.
GA {{GA-Class}} Reserved exclusively for articles that have received "Good Article" status, and meet the current criteria for Good Articles. Article should be at or around A-class to receive this tag.
Featured article FA {{FA-Class}} Reserved exclusively for articles that have received "Featured article" status, and meet the current criteria for featured articles.
