WikiProject article quality grading scheme

Importance scale[edit]

The article's importance within popular culture, regardless of its quality. Think of it as a hierarchy of categories, starting with broad categories and ending with focused categories (e.g., plant-> tree-> pine-> knotty pine).

Top Article is a must-have for a print encyclopaedia. The topic of the article covers a large and important subject in the field of popular culture. Top-Class articles should be few and far between. Examples include: Galaxies in fiction, Cultural depictions of Jesus, Satan in popular culture, and Dracula in popular culture.
High Article is a common and broad topic. Examples include: Earth in fiction, Cultural influence of Star Trek, Stars and planetary systems in fiction.
Mid Article fills in minor details about a broad topic or a depth of knowledge about a minor topic. Examples include:Titan in fiction, Cultural depictions of Joan of Arc, Space warfare in fiction.
Low Subject is of peripheral knowledge, possibly trivial. Examples include: Tuberculosis in art, Cultural depictions of Edward VI of England, Asteroids in fiction.
