Wikipedia:WikiProject Denmark/Assessment

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

Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Denmark, which focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Denmark-related articles. The resulting article ratings are used within the project to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work, and are also expected to play a role in the WP:1.0 program.

The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Denmark}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Denmark articles by quality and Category:Denmark articles by importance, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.


See also the general assessment FAQ.
1. What is the purpose of the article ratings?
The rating system allows the project to monitor the quality of articles in our subject areas, and to prioritize work on these articles. It is also utilized by the Wikipedia 1.0 program to prepare for static releases of Wikipedia content. Please note, however, that these ratings are primarily intended for the internal use of the project, and do not necessarily imply any official standing within Wikipedia as a whole.
2. How do I add an article to the WikiProject?
Just add {{WikiProject Denmark}} to the talk page; there's no need to do anything else.
3. Someone put a {{WikiProject Denmark}} template on an article, but it doesn't seem to be within the project's scope. What should I do?
Because of the large number of articles we deal with, we occasionally make mistakes and add tags to articles that shouldn't have them. If you notice one, feel free to remove the tag, and optionally leave a note on the talk page of this department (or directly with the person who tagged the article).
4. Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Denmark WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article. Editors who are not participants in this project are also welcome to assess articles, but should defer to consensus within the project in case of procedural disputes.
5. How do I rate an article?
Check the quality scale and select the level that best matches the state of the article; then, follow the instructions below to add the rating to the project banner on the article's talk page.
6. Can I request that someone else rate an article?
Of course; to do so, please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
7. 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.
8. Where can I get more comments about an article?
People at Wikipedia:Peer Review can conduct a more thorough examination of articles; please submit it for review there, or ask for comments on the main project discussion page.
9. 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.
10. Aren't the ratings subjective?
Yes, they are somewhat subjective, 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!
11. What if I have a question not listed here?
If your question concerns the article assessment process specifically, please refer to the discussion page for this department; for any other issues, you can go to the main project discussion page.


An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Denmark}} project banner on its talk page (see the template page for more details on the exact syntax):

{{WikiProject Denmark| class=??? | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values for the class parameter may be used:

The following values for the importance parameter may be used:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed-Class Denmark articles and articles for which a valid importance is not provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Denmark articles. The class and importance should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

  13. Internet in Denmark has been expanded several times since it received it's Stub-Class category. Please reasses at the talk page.
  14. 1864 (TV series) – the article has been steadily growing for a couple of years but was still auto-rated as stub class until just now. I've done some editing to the Production and Reception sections and I think it's ready to be re-rated. Scolaire (talk) 09:24, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
  15. Rudkøbing - I've updated and expanded this article a bunch over the past few days. The main text has been greatly expanded, and images and new sources have been added. The article has sextupled in size, and it has increased a lot in quality, at least in my own opinion. I hope this article can be upgraded to "Start" status, or possibly even "C" status. - (talk) 01:19, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
