Yellow star, blue check, green plus.svg Assessment[edit]

Our assessment criteria and procedure are explained on the Assessment page. Like many other WikiProjects, TAFI assesses the articles it is involved with. Unlike other projects, we only assess the article's state before and immediately after its week of collaborative editing – that improvement is one (but not the only) measure of our success.

TAFI makes use of various templates. See the Automation page for details, including banners, talk page messages, user and project maintenance templates. The project's bot tasks are also listed here, currently undertaken by Theo's Little Bot.
