Welcome to the assessment department of the Australian baseball task force! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's baseball articles.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Baseball|australia=yes}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed into the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Australian baseball articles by quality and Category:Australian baseball articles by importance.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

How can I get my article rated? 
As a member of the Australian baseball task force, you can do it yourself. If you're unsure, list it in the requesting an assessment section below.
Who can assess articles? 
Any member of the Australian baseball task force is free to add—or change—the rating of an article, but please follow the guidelines.
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.
Where can I get more comments about my article? 
Contact Wikipedia:WikiProject Baseball who will handle it or assign the issue to someone. You may also list it for a Peer review.
What if I don't agree with a rating? 
Relist it as a request or contact Wikipedia:WikiProject Baseball who will handle it or assign the issue to someone.
Aren't the ratings subjective? 
Yes, they are (see, in particular, the disclaimers on the importance scale), 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, or to contact the Wikipedia:WikiProject Australian baseball directly.
