Tag & Assess 2008 is now closed.

Please help improve the next Tag & Assess drive by joining the workshop

Drive coordinator/s: Roger Davies (talk) • Woody (talk)

Welcome to Tag & Assess 2008! Here's what it's all about. The Military history WikiProject has about 60,000 stub and start articles, built up over the last few years. The time has come for comprehensive housekeeping and that's what this drive is all about. The drive will run from 24 April to 4 July 2008, and its purpose is three-fold:

  1. to ensure that all the articles are within our scope;
  2. to ensure that they are all correctly tagged for task forces;
  3. and to ensure that they are all correctly assessed for class.

You join up by (i) adding your name to the participants' list and (ii) adopting one of the ranges of 200 articles in the worklists below. You then work through the range, tagging and assessing, following the instructions below. Each range is broken down into bite-sized sub-sections of ten articles each, so it's easy to keep track of where you are. At first, it will take a couple of minutes to check each article but – with a bit of practice and growing familiarity with the parameters – most people get faster than that. And please don't forget to tidy up as you go, removing any unused template parameters from the worklist and replacing long forms with short forms where appropriate.

If you have any queries about scope, class or task forces, please raise them in the doubts and questions section of the talk page. Alternatively, leave a message on the talk page of one of the drive coordinators.

As with the last drive, we'll be running a workshop immediately after this ends to seek improvement. The link will be posted on the drive closing notice.

The rewards[edit]

As a token of our appreciation for your efforts, we will be presenting service awards and barnstars based on the number of articles you work through. The awards are cumulative. For example, tagging 2000 articles entitles you to One Stripe, Two Stripe and Three Stripe service awards plus the Tireless Contributor Barnstar and the Chevrons. To add a bit of friendly competition, the three editors who tag and assess the most articles by 4 July 2008 will be awarded bronze, silver and gold wikis. The drive coordinators will administer awards and by default will post them on your talk page within a few days of the end of the drive. If you'd like yours earlier, please ask one of the drive coordinators.


C-Class: The consensus of the discussion on the military history project talkpage is to not adopt C-Class. Please do not assess any article under our scope with C-Class.

For each article:

  • Read the article. Then:
  1. Check that it's within the Milhist scope.
  2. Check that the class is correctly assessed.
  3. Add any missing Task Force parameters.
  • NB: Do not tag or assess redirects.
Completed ranges
  • After completing each 10-article range, either strike through the article name (with "<s>" and "</s>") or add "Done, ~~~~" at the foot of the section.
Scope questions
Assessment help
  • For general assessment help, see assessment FAQ.
  • For the formal Stub, Start-class and B-Class criteria, see the Milhist quality scale.
  • For specific B-class questions, see the B-class checklist FAQ.
  • The template nows accepts B-Class short forms – "b1=y" / "B2=N" etc – as well as the long form "B-Class-1=yes".
  • If all five B-class parameters are "Yes", the template automatically sets "class=B".
  • For Stubs, the template no longer displays the B-class checklist. To display the checklist (for instance, to reclassify a Stub as B-Class) just change to article class from "Stub" to "Start" or "B-Class" and press "Preview". The checklist will appear in the template ready for cutting and pasting into the article.
Task forces
  • For speed, and ease of cutting and pasting, open the complete list of task forces in a new tab. Select the task force/s you want and paste them into the article's talk page.
  • Task forces can be assigned using the long form ("Fooish-task-force=yes") or the short form ("Fooish=y"), completely interchangeably.
  • The template now accepts "Yes" / "yes" / "Y" / "y".
  • To avoid clutter, remove any unused template parameters from the talk page before saving.
Sample parameter strings
  • Before tagging and assessing: {{WPMILHIST|class=start|US-task-force=yes}}
  • After (short form): {{WPMILHIST|class=B|b1=y|b2=y|B3=Y|b4=yes|b5=y|US=y|WWII=y|Aviation=y}}
  • After (long form): {{WPMILHIST|class=B|B-class-1=yes |B-class-2=yes |B-class-3=yes |B-class-4=yes |B-class-5=yes |US-task-force=yes |WWII-task-force=yes |Aviation-task-force=yes}}


Please add your name below, in alphabetical order, using the {{User0|"Your name"}} template. Then add a running total (tally) of articles worked on. This tally should include articles that you have evaluated and needed no changes, as well as those that you have re-assessed. It will be the basis for awards. To make it easier to pick up where you leave off, and to avoid edit conflicts, please "adopt a range" in the Worklists below.
