Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Lacrosse. This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's lacrosse 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 {{Lacrosse}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Lacrosse articles by quality and Category:Lacrosse articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist (Index · Statistics · Log).

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 Lacrosse 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.

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.

MLL/NLL teams[edit]

Where do all the MLL and NLL team articles stand on the scale of importance? I would say low or mid and if I had to choose I would say mid, but let's get a standard for all these teams. --Yarnalgo 06:35, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

My vote would be high for existing teams and mid for defunct teams (or franchises that have moved). I would also be OK for mid (existing) and low (defunct). --MrBoo (talk, contribs) 22:55, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
