Numerical ratings[edit]

  • I think being rated 0 should look different to being unrated. At the moment you can't tell the difference.
  • You probably don't want the numerical rating prompt to appear on non-articles?

I agree on both points. It shouldn't break anything if we just remove the default 0 values, right?--Sross (Public Policy) (talk) 15:37, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, I think. Maybe you could adapt {{progress bar}} to display the ratings graphically? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 16:16, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Ooooh, that'd be cool!--Sross (Public Policy) (talk) 16:20, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
How's this? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 14:21, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
I was thinking more like an aggregate scale (one bar that represents the total score), and then textual descriptions of the shortcomings of the different quality scores that point to what needs to be improved, adapted from Wikipedia:WikiProject United States Public Policy/Quality rating#Explanation.--Sross (Public Policy) (talk) 14:29, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
