Assessing the quality of Wikipedia's LGBT articles lets us recognise excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work. The quality ratings also play a role in the WP:1.0 program, which the WikiProject uses to help automate some of the assessing process.

Assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject LGBT studies}} project banner. This causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:LGBT articles by quality, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist. WP:1.0 also produces a statistics page, and a log of articles assessed.

How to assess an article[edit]

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

{{WikiProject LGBT studies|class=???}}

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

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

For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class LGBT articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class LGBT articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class LGBT articles) Draft
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class LGBT articles) File
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class LGBT articles) Portal
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class LGBT articles) Project
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class LGBT articles) Redirect
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class LGBT articles) Template
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class LGBT articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed LGBT articles) ???

Unassessed and recently assessed articles[edit]

Quality scale[edit]

WikiProject LGBT Studies uses the same criteria for grading articles as set out by the Version 1.0 Editorial Team. If you are not sure what class an article falls under, leave a note on the WikiProject's talkpage, and someone will help you out.



An importance parameter has not been added to the project tag for talk pages, though this has been proposed. A list of core articles is available at WP:LGBT/Core.

Requesting an assessment[edit]

  • If you have made significant changes to an article and would like someone to reassess it (up to and including B-class), please post a reassessment request at WT:LGBT.
  • For improving an article beyond B-class, see WP:GA to nominate an article as a good article and WP:FAC to nominate an article as a featured article.
  • You can request a peer review for an article at WP:PR.
