Requesting an assessmentEdit

Editorial debatesEdit

Editorial debates may include disputes over the content in articles. If such a dispute is filed for the editors' considerations, the relevant article's talk pages may be regarded as a staging ground for affairs that need to be resolved. After a consensus (that would still require some votes) debates surrounding issues like sectarianism and nationalism have paved the way for assessment of citations used in the articles on the basis of the Wikipedia's third opinion rules.

If there are citations that need to be judged and evaluated by third-party neutral peers, they need to be discussed here.


An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WP Pakistan}} project banner on its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax):

{{WP Pakistan| ... | class=??? | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Pakistan articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

The following values may be used for the importance parameter:

The parameter is not used if an article's class is set to NA, and may be omitted in those cases. The importance should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Quality scaleEdit

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

Importance scaleEdit

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 Pakistan.

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.

Status Template Meaning of Status
Top {{Top-Class}} This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information.
High {{High-Class}} This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge.
Mid {{Mid-Class}} This article is relatively important to this project, as it fills in some more specific knowledge of certain areas.
Low {{Low-Class}} This article is of little importance to this project, but it covers a highly specific area of knowledge or an obscure piece of trivia.
None None This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be analyzed.

Statistics in a GlanceEdit

The numbers depicted here are in their hundreds

As can be seen from the graph on the right generated using data depicted in the reports of the Wikipedia editorial teams's Pakistan statistics page. The amount of assessed and unassessed articles has risen dramatically while the amount of articles declared stubs has stayed at a stable percentage increase. What is interesting is the fact that most start articles and B-class articles remain unchanged over the course and no effort is put into improving these articles. It is also visible that we are loosing touch with some featured articles that relate to Pakistan as well.
