One of the main tasks of the LGBT WikiProject is to assess the quality of Wikipedia's LGBT articles. The resulting article ratings are used within the project to help in recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work. They also play a role in the WP:1.0 program, which the WikiProject uses to help automate some of the assessing process.

The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject LGBT studies}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:LGBT articles by quality, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist. WP:1.0 also produces a statistics page, and a log of articles assessed.

How to assess an article[edit]

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject LGBT studies}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject LGBT studies|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Quality scale for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class LGBT articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class LGBT articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class LGBT articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class LGBT articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class LGBT articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class LGBT articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class LGBT articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class LGBT articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class LGBT articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Book (for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class LGBT articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class LGBT articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class LGBT articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class LGBT articles)  Draft 
File (for files; adds pages to Category:File-Class LGBT articles)  File 
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class LGBT articles) Redirect page Redirect 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class LGBT articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class LGBT articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class LGBT articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class LGBT articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed LGBT articles)  ??? 

Where to find unassessed articles[edit]

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed LGBT articles. The criteria for the different classes is below.

Articles which are in LGBT categories (possibly inappropriately - watch out for vandalism!) but which don't yet have an LGBT template are listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies/Cat Search 4 New Pages.

Quality scale[edit]

WikiProject LGBT Studies uses the same criteria for grading articles as set out by the Version 1.0 Editorial Team. If you are not sure what class an article falls under, leave a note on the WikiProject's talkpage, and someone will help you out.

WikiProject article quality grading scheme


An importance parameter has not been added to the project tag for talk pages, though this has been proposed. Currently "core" articles are being identified at Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies/Core topics.

Requesting an assessment[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new quality rating for it, please feel free to list it below. This is only to rate the article on quality up to and including a B class you may or may not get feedback on the article. See Good Article to nominate an article for GA, and Featured Article to nominate an article for FA. See peer review to request a review or nominate an article for review.

If you assess an article, please remove the entry and leave an appropriate edit summary.

Add new requests to the bottom of this list.
