Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Psychedelics, Dissociatives and Deliriants! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's hallucinogen-related articles.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

How can I get my article rated? 
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles? 
Any member of WikiProject Psychedelics, Dissociatives and Deliriants is free to add or change the rating of an article.
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.
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.
Aren't the ratings subjective? 
Yes, they are, 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!

If you have any other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.

Importance scale[edit]

Article importance grading scheme
Label Criteria Examples
Top priority Subject is extremely important, even crucial, to the topic. Strong interest from non-professionals around the world. Usually a large subject with many associated sub-articles. Very few articles achieve this rating. Recreational drug use or Psychoactive drug
High priority Subject is clearly notable. Subject is interesting to, or directly affects, many average readers. This category includes the most psychoactive drugs as well as major subjects of study. Relatively few articles achieve this rating. Caffeine, Ethanol, or Heroin
Mid priority Normal priority for article improvement. A good article would be interesting or useful to many readers. ALD-52 or Adrafinil
Low priority Article may only be included to cover a specific part of a more important article, or may be only loosely connected to psychoactive or recreational drugs. Subject may be specific to one country or part of one country, such as use of a certain drug in a specific country. Aldous Huxley
NA NA means Not an Article. This label is used for all pages that are not articles, such as templates, categories, and disambiguation pages. (To mark an article as "needs assessment" or "not assessed," simply leave the importance parameter empty, like this: |importance= ) WikiProject Psychoactive and Recreational Drugs
