Project-independent quality assessments[edit]

Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

AS-28[edit]

I've suggested that Russian deep submergence rescue vehicle AS-28 be split to Rescue of AS-28, as the majority of the article is about its rescue, so should exist as an accident article instead of a sub article. For the discussion, please see Talk:Russian deep submergence rescue vehicle AS-28 -- 64.229.90.172 (talk) 23:55, 5 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Accidents and incidents are not necessarily disasters[edit]

Editors are invited to joint a discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aviation/Aviation accident task force § Accidents and incidents are not necessarily disasters about whether "accident/incident" subcategories should be subcats of "disaster" categories. Mitch Ames (talk) 12:04, 20 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

This issue has been raised again, so editors are again invited to discuss it at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aviation/Aviation accident task force § Accidents and incidents are not necessarily disasters. Mitch Ames (talk) 12:36, 30 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

MOS discussion of use of "accident"[edit]

I have recently opened a discussion on the WP:WOW talk page as to whether we should follow the AP Stylebook's lead and discourage the use of "accident" in referring to transportation disasters due to the implication of absolution/exoneration. Input from this project would be welcome. Daniel Case (talk) 14:49, 24 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Transport Disaster categories[edit]

Hello, WikiProject,

If you look at Category:Empty categories awaiting deletion, you'll see hundreds of Transport Disaster categories have been emptied and will be deleted next week. I don't know if this was done in keeping with your understanding of "disaster" so I thought I'd bring it to your attention in case these categories had been emptied "out of process". Thank you.

New important article: Maritime incident[edit]

I've stubbed this. Rather a top-level topic, I'd say, but missing - uness I misssed something obvious. Please try to destub and add some bibliography... Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:57, 17 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

I suggest not conflating accident, disaster and incident, as the article currently does. Not all incidents are accidents, not all incidents or accidents are disasters.

Floods in Afghanistan[edit]

...came to the Floods in Afghanistan page, because of the present, 2024 Afghanistan flood reports... Someone already hastily (and IMO sloppily) started a 2024 Afghanistan-Pakistan floods stub. So while this is an annual event, sadly, there are numerous annual pages. I would like to clarify the existing formal issues on the child pages (stubs) named in the List of Floods in Afghanistan:

  • Shouldnt these annual event stubs be named uniformly? For example plural versus singular etc
  • Shouldnt they be created separately for Afghanistan and Pakistan -or together as occurred in two cases: 2013 Pakistan–Afghanistan floods?
  • or: If there is as little editorial attention to these pages as it seems,(probably also lack of subsequent reporting about the event) shouldnt the info of these pages be better presented in a table?

Before starting an RfC on Talk:Floods in Afghanistan I am posting this here and on the respective Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Afghanistan and Wikipedia:WikiProject Weather/Floods task force pages in the hope that someone comments. Wuerzele (talk) 09:19, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
