1 - Articles about turtles in culture are not currently within scope of the WikiProject Turtles and are therefore not suitable to have a project tag, such articles may include List of fictional turtles, The Tortoise and the Hare, World Turtle Day. Articles about non fictional turtles in general. e.g. Turtling (hunting), Turtle racing, Turtle soup are within scope.

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of herpetology.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

Assessment classes[edit]

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Turtles}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Turtles|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Quality scale for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class turtle articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class turtle articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class turtle articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class turtle articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class turtle articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class turtle articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class turtle articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class turtle articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class turtle articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class turtle articles) Category page Category

NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class turtle articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed turtle articles)  ???
