Current assessment summary

Assessment links

Descendant WikiProjects

Articles about Mississippi can brush up against many other subjects: for instance, an article about a U.S. Senator from Mississippi is about Mississippi as well as about the U.S. Senate. Therefore, before working on an article, it is recommended to check the list of WikiProjects to see whether another WikiProject exists that may have established guidelines about the subject of the article in question.

(Of course, it is also good to be familiar with Wikipedia-wide policies and guidelines.)
