Article development path

  1. Start a new article

  4. Get feedback from WikiProject
  5. Get broader creative feedback
  6. Apply for featured article or good article status
  7. Featured articles and Good articles

The peer review department of the Arena Football League WikiProject conducts peer reviews of articles on requests. The primary objective is to encourage better articles by having contributors who may not have worked on articles to examine them and provide ideas for further improvement.

The peer review process is highly flexible and can deal with articles of any quality; however, requesting reviews on very short articles may not be productive, as there is little for readers to comment on. Generally, most reviews will be conducted before nominating an article for Good Article or Featured Article status.

All reviews are conducted by fellow editors—usually members of the Arena Football League WikiProject. You do not need to be a member of the WikiProject to review an article.


Requesting a review[edit]

  1. Add peer-review=yes to the {{Wikiproject Arena Football League}} project banner at the top of the article's talk page.
  2. From there, click on the "currently" link that appears in red in the template. This will open a page to discuss the review of your article.
  3. Place === [[Name of nominated article]] === at the top.
  4. Below it, write your reason for nominating the article and sign by using four tildes (~~~~). Also specify if you are going for Good article, Featured article, or neither as this may require different levels of scrutiny.
  5. Add {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Arena Football League/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} at the top of the list of requests on this page.

If an article is listed for a second (or third, and so forth) peer review:

  1. Move the existing peer review subpage (Wikipedia:WikiProject Arena Football League/Peer review/Name of nominated article) to an archive (Wikipedia:WikiProject Arena Football League/Peer review/Name of nominated article/Archive 1).
  2. Follow the instructions for making a request above (editing the primary page, which will be a redirect to the archive, into a new request page).
  3. Be sure to provide a prominent link to the last archive at the top of the request (e.g. "Prior peer review here.").

Responding to a request[edit]

Everyone is encouraged to comment on any request listed here. To comment on an article, please add a new section (using ==== [[User:Your name|Your name]] ====) for your comments, in order to keep multiple responses legible.


Reviews should be archived after they have been inactive for some time, or when the article is nominated as a featured article candidate. To archive a review:

  1. Replace peer-review=yes with old-peer-review=yes in the {{Wikiproject Arena Football League}} project banner template at the top of the article's talk page
  2. Move {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Arena Football League/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} from this page to the current archive page.
