The worklists are typically a mixture of nearly all classes of article. (The number in front of the class is simply for sorting purposes incidentally.) How each article is reviewed depends on its class.

  • FA, A-Class and GA
  1. These are all community assessments so our role is not to re-evaluate them. Broadly, until the community has decided to review an article's class we accept the current class at face value.
  2. The aim is to publish a stable article so articles in these classes need to be checked for telltale templates:{{NPOV}}, {{Disputed}}, {{controversial}}, {{Unrefsec}} and so forth. Look also for evidence of edit-warring.
  3. If the article has no templates, the current version is okay for release. Paste a permanent link to the version you checked into the "Version Link" column.
  4. If the article does carry a template, please paste a link to the promoted version of the article into the "Version link" column of the worklist and that becomes the release version.
  • B-Class
  1. Any B-Class articles with templates should be marked "Remove? (+ reason)" in the "Comments" column of the worklist.
  2. Try to find an earlier stable version of the article and paste a permanent link to it into the "Version link" column.
  • Start-Class
  1. Check any Start-Class articles against the B-Class criteria (using the five-point Milhist checklist) and promote if applicable. (Here's link to the B-class FAQ.) Many have been improved since they were last assessed; you may also find some that have never been assessed.
  2. Articles which fail the B-Class criteria, or carry templates, should be marked "Replace? (+ reason)" in the "Comments" column of the worklist.
  3. Consider finding a replacement article. If you do this, simply add it as a comment under the worklist table below, linking to the article and giving brief reasons why it's a suitable replacement.
  • Notes:
Creating a permanent link: go to the preferred version of the article and click on obtain a "permanent link" in the Toolbox at the left side of the page. Then copy the permanent link – example : Foo : – into the "Version Link" column of the worklist table.
Promoted versions: these can be found in the talk page banner, usually in the "Article milestones" section.
  • Problems? Queries? FAQ?:
Please check the talk page first and/or raise them with the review coordinator/s.
