Wikipedia:WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers/Assessment

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

Welcome to the assessment department of the Actors and Filmmakers WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's actor and filmmaker related articles. 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 {{WPBiography}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Biography (actors and filmmakers) articles by quality and Category:Biography (actors and filmmakers) articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

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 Actors and Filmmakers WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.
Why didn't the reviewer leave any comments? 
Unfortunately, due to the volume of articles that need to be assessed, we are unable to leave detailed comments in most cases. If you have particular questions, you might ask the person who assessed the article; they will usually be happy to provide you with their reasoning.
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]

Quality assessments[edit]

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

{{WPBiography|class=???|filmbio-work-group=yes}}

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 biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) 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 biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles)  Draft 
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles)  File 
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles) Redirect page Redirect 
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class biography (actors and filmmakers) articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed biography (actors and filmmakers) articles)  ??? 

After assessing an article's quality, comments on the assessment can be added either to the article's talk page or to the /Comments subpage which will appear as a link next to the assessment. Adding comments will add the article to Category:Biography (actors and filmmakers) articles with comments. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.[needs update]

Priority assessment[edit]

An article's priority assessment is generated from the filmbio-priority parameter in the {{WPBiography}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WPBiography| ... | filmbio-work-group=yes | filmbio-priority=??? | ...}}
Top
High
Mid
Low
???

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Priority scale[edit]

Label Criteria Examples
Top Core topics about actors and filmmakers. Generally, these are people who are extremely notable to the common person. This category should stay limited to approximately 100 members. Bette Davis
Woody Allen
High Actors and filmmakers who are well known in the film industry, to film buffs, and others. These people can reasonably be expected to be included in any print encyclopedia. Reese Witherspoon
Ang Lee
Mid Actors and filmmakers that are reasonably notable on a national level within the actors and filmmakers field without necessarily being famous or very notable elsewhere. Alec Baldwin
Danny Boyle
Low Actors and filmmakers of little interest to non-film buffs and the film industry. Tor Johnson

Requesting an assessment[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below.

  • Bryan Cranston – Has not been officially assessed by this project since 2010. A rating was added in July 2012 but by the WikiProject California. After looking over the article it seems plausible to take it to take it to GA, but may require more prose expansion. Mkdwtalk 22:20, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Assessed as C-class since January 2013. Possible WP:GA target. (If somebody wants to work this up to GA, contact me...) --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:53, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Emily VanCamp – I have just completed a total overhaul of this article, currently rated as "Start class". I believe it may now belong higher on the scale. Happy Evil Dude (talk) 00:36, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
    • Reassessed as B-class in August 2014. --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:53, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Sid Caesar has been extensively edited, updated and expanded by multiple editors on the occasion of his death, and prior to being featured in RD at In the News. Dwpaul Talk 18:15, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
    • Assessed as B-class since September 2007. Probably needs a reassessment. --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:53, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Raúl Castillo – I created this article, but it was inaccurately assessed as part of the Sports Project (due to similarity to the athlete Raul Castillo. Requesting overall correct project reassessment from this project. Thank you! Luminum (talk) 07:07, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Split assessment: as B-class in January 2015, and as C-class in February 2015. I've "harmonized" assessment as C-class for now, but it should probably be reassessed by a more knowledgeable FILMBIO editor... --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:53, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
  • James Williamson (film pioneer) – I have just completed an extension of this article, last rated as "Stub class" in 2007, and would appreciate re-assessment and advice. Thanks! Mutt (talk) 22:08, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Completed assessment as Start-class. But with more sourcing, it could easily be promoted to C-class. --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:53, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Kiff VandenHeuvel - Newly created article as the first edit by a new account and then expanded upon by an SPA IP editor. Article was prodded, but that was removed. Would somebody from FILMBIO take a look at this and see if this person satisfies WP:NACTOR? At first glance, it does seem iffy and I have not been able to find any real significant coverage through googling, so it sort of seems like WP:TOOSOON. Perhaps someone else might have better luck. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:11, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Niall Matter – Requesting reassessment following updates. The page is still classified as a Stub, but has progressed beyond that point. Thank you. AutumnKing (talk) 09:11, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Andrea Brooks – Newly created article. Thank you. AutumnKing (talk) 10:16, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
    • @Autumnking2012: My off-the-cuff assessment is that the subject does not pass WP:NACTOR (for example, she has never had a "main role" on a TV series), and thus should not have a standalone article. I think you need to find more mainline sourcing to justify that one, or it's likely to be WP:PROD'ed or WP:AfD'ed as WP:TOOSOON. --IJBall (contribstalk) 16:11, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Danish Taimoor – Actor SahabAliwadia 15:35, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Luke Roskell – a new article I created today; still early in his career so there isn't much information available, online or otherwise; I would greatly enjoy your assessment and any tips you may share in order to make the entry as complete as possible given its limitations. --Luisftd (talk) 22:25, 4 September 2017 (UTC)
    • I'm not going to rate it myself, right now – but it's borderline Start-class (and "low" priority to WP:FILMBIO). One or two more sources would cinch it as Start-class. --IJBall (contribstalk) 22:44, 4 September 2017 (UTC)
