(Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Amphibian and reptile articles by quality statistics)


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

{{WikiProject Amphibians and Reptiles|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 amphibian and reptile articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class amphibian and reptile articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class amphibian and reptile articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class amphibian and reptile articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class amphibian and reptile articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class amphibian and reptile articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class amphibian and reptile articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class amphibian and reptile articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class amphibian and reptile articles)  List 

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

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

The following values may be used for the importance parameter:

If the parameter is omitted entirely, the article will be added to Category:Unassessed-importance amphibian and reptile articles. The importance should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

The following parameters are used to assess specific needs for individual articles and are used in the form:

{{WikiProject Amphibians and Reptiles|class=|importance=|needs-taxobox=yes|...}}

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 herpetology.

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 a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

Status Template Meaning of Status Example
Top {{Top-Class}} This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information. Amphibian, Reptile, Tetrapod
High {{High-Class}} This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge. Black mamba, Cane Toad, Komodo dragon
Mid {{Mid-Class}} This article is relatively important to this project, as it fills in some more specific knowledge of certain areas. Golden Poison Frog, Canthus (snake), Herping
Low {{Low-Class}} This article is of little importance to this project, but it covers a highly specific area of knowledge or an obscure piece of trivia. Afrana, Platysaurus broadleyi, Rhinoceros Iguana
None None This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be analyzed.
