How this works[edit]

I'm just making sure I understand this correctly. Any article placed on this page is one that the person placing it here isn't sure about, or that is disputed as to which assessment rank it should be? ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 22:48, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Changing of assessment page[edit]

I feel that the way this page is used should be scrapped. Only a few people come by to check it. It should be based on [1] this. Feel free to contradict me though. XP Ominae (talk) 08:07, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Have a look at how we did WP:ANIME/ASSESS, also look at {{WikiProject Anime and manga}}. G.A.S 08:54, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Something like that can probably work. Thing is that the page'll have to revamped from scratch... Ominae (talk) 10:14, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
I concur. This will also involve moving Wikipedia:WikiProject Japan#Article assessment here. I would also suggest merging Wikipedia:WikiProject Japan#FAC and FAR requests here as well. G.A.S 05:57, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Yoko Ono[edit]

Hello, I changed Yoko Ono from high importance to low importance. Thanks, The Hero of This Nation (talk) 15:08, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Assessment of Name Articles[edit]

I have a question about the articles on Japanese names, especially the given names, like Shigenobu (which I recently expanded). Should they be assessed like regular articles, with (Start, C-class, etc) or as a "Disambiguation" page? Boneyard90 (talk) 16:06, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Sudoku "Top"?[edit]

I saw that the article Sudoku is rated as "Top" importance. I propose that it be downgraded to "Mid" or "High" at best. Here are my reasons:

  • The game was NOT invented in Japan. It was invented by a guy in Indiana.
  • The name "Sudoku" was invented in Japan.
  • While the game is an international phenomenon, it should not be considered a "core topic" (per Top-importance criteria) on the subject of Japan.

I submit that Japan without sudoku wouldn't be very different than it is today, and therefore does not rank among articles such as Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Kabuki, or the Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (all Top-importance). Boneyard90 (talk) 06:52, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

I agree. bamse (talk) 11:31, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Downgraded to "Mid" importance. Boneyard90 (talk) 22:15, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia:WikiProject Japan/Assessment#Importance scale: "For example, Sudoku is ..." needs to be rewritten with another example. --Kusunose 00:46, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
True. I suggest something that fulfills the "Top-importance" definition but easily recognized by anyone familiar with Japanese culture, like Sushi or Haiku, both of which are already rated Top-importance. Boneyard90 (talk) 01:16, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Transport in Japan[edit]

I would like to reassess the article Transport in Japan from High-Importance to Top-Importance. The articles Rail transport in Japan and Narita International Airport are rated Top-Importance, so I don't see why Transport in Japan isn't Top-Importantance. Is this okay? --Horai 551 10:53, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
