Wikipedia:WikiProject Mountains/Assessment

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

Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Mountains. This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about mountains. 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 {{WikiProject Mountains}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Mountain articles by quality and Category:Mountain articles by importance.

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 Mountains WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
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.

Instructions[edit]

An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Mountains}} or {{Mountain}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Mountains
|class=
|importance=
|needs-photo=
|needs-infobox=
}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter. The value is not case-sensitive so for example, Start or start can be used.

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Mountain articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

Quality scale[edit]

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

Importance scale[edit]

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of mountains.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to several audiences —but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

Status Template Meaning of Status
Top {{Top-importance}} This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information. All of the Seven Summits or Seven Second Summits as well as country high points should be of top importance.
High {{High-importance}} This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge. Peaks likely to be known by the general populace and the second highest peaks in a geographic area.
Mid {{Mid-importance}} This article is relatively important to this project. The highest peaks in a mountain range generally fall into this class.
Low {{Low-importance}} The mountain/peak is typically not well known even to most mountaineers and has no significant elevation within its mountain range (if contained in such).
NA {{NA-importance}} This article has no importance (as it pertains to article improvement) and is typically used for categories and disambiguation pages.
None None This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be analyzed.

We are currently discussing which articles should be counted as being of Top-importance at Wikipedia:WikiProject Mountains/Assessment/Top-importance articles.

Importance assessment[edit]

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Mountains}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Mountains| ... | importance=??? | ...}}
Top
High
Mid
Low
???

The following values may be used for importance assessments:
