Wikipedia:WikiProject Middle-earth/Assessment/Importance

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

This is a list of articles selected by WikiProject Middle-earth for assessment for the importance criteria that helps to determine which articles should appear in a release of Wikipedia, and hence which articles need to be worked on as a priority. "Top" and "high" importance would probably be selected for release. Discussion should take place on the talk page of this page, and when consensus is reached, articles can be added to the agreed importance category. This is done by adding or changing the importance parameter in Template:ME-project, which appears on the talk page of the article. This will automatically add the article to the corresponding category, and the assessment bot (which runs daily) will update the list of Tolkien articles by quality.
