How often is the assessment updated? S♦s♦e♦b♦a♦l♦l♦o♦s (Talk to Me) 23:05, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Generally, every three days. It's automated by a bot. --Daysleeper47 (talk) 13:28, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

FA articles[edit]

Do they all need to rank as "High" on the importance scale just because they are FA? Nine Inch Nails (and their discography) aren't high on my list of important things about Ohio. --Daysleeper47 (talk) 15:55, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Just saw this. My thinking was the article's subjects are important enough for people to work towards them becoming featured that they should be top priority so WP:Ohio can keep those articles looking good. Of course this can always be changed. Anyone else have an opinion on the matter? §hep¡Talk to me! 03:28, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

How to rate articles by importance[edit]

So how do we want to do this? The generic thing I've seen is all GAs are high, FAs and FLs are top and other are up to discretion. Seems like we need our system.

"DRAFT" WikiProject Ohio importance scale: The article's importance, regardless of its quality, particularly in terms of Ohio geography, history, demographics, cities and towns, law and government, economy, transportation, education, and professional sports.

Rate articles on overall importance. Use the basic descriptions, guided by the general examples when available. Always give the highest rating suggested by general examples at different levels.

Top Subject is a must-have for Category:Ohio
  • State government
  • Major geological formations and geographic regions
  • Cities over 100,000 and major metropolitan areas
High Subject contributes a depth of knowledge
  • Micropolitan areas
  • State and national parks
  • Major universities, charities and foundations
  • Federal highways and waterways
  • Military battles, wars and skirmishes
  • Cities 50,000 - 99,999
  • Sitting Federal and statewide politicians
Mid Subject fills in more minor details
  • Unique notable cultural, sport and entertainment traditions and celebrations
  • Folklore
  • Minor geographic and geological sites
  • Major architectural landmarks
  • Cities/Towns 10,000 - 49,999
  • Former federal and statewide politicians; sitting mayors
  • Listings on the National Register of Historic Places
Low Subject is peripheral knowledge, possibly trivial
  • Non-suburb populations under 10,000
  • Famous or notable native or resident biographies
  • Local politicians with constituents fewer than 100,000
  • City neighborhoods, parks and events
  • Individual sporting events
  • Minor architectural structures
  • Lists and galleries

Thanks for your consideration,
