|WikiWork factors ("?)||ω =131,161||Ω = 5.38|
|Class||Criteria||Reader's experience||Editing suggestions||Example|
|"" "FA||The article has attained "featured article status by passing an official review.
|Professional, outstanding, and thorough; a definitive source for encyclopedic information.||No further content additions should be necessary unless new information becomes available; further improvements to the prose quality are often possible.||
(as of August 2014)
|"" "A||The article is well organized and essentially complete, having been reviewed by impartial reviewers from this WikiProject or elsewhere. Good article status is not a requirement for A-Class.
|Very useful to readers. A fairly complete treatment of the subject. A non-expert in the subject would typically find nothing wanting.||Expert knowledge may be needed to tweak the article, and style problems may need solving. "Peer review may help.||
(as of June 2014)
|"GA||The article has attained "good article status by passing an official review.
|Useful to nearly all readers, with no obvious problems; approaching (but not equalling) the quality of a professional encyclopedia.||Some editing by subject and style experts is helpful; comparison with an existing "featured article on a similar topic may highlight areas where content is weak or missing.||House of Lords Act 1999 (as of May 2008)|
|B"||The article is mostly complete and without major problems, but requires some further work to reach "good article standards.
|Readers are not left wanting, although the content may not be complete enough to satisfy a serious student or researcher.||A few aspects of content and style need to be addressed. Expert knowledge may be needed. The inclusion of supporting materials should be considered if practical, and the article checked for general compliance with the "Manual of Style and related "style guidelines.||
(as of October 2017)
|C"||The article is substantial, but is still missing important content or contains much irrelevant material. The article should have some references to reliable sources, but may still have significant problems or require substantial "cleanup.
|Useful to a casual reader, but would not provide a complete picture for even a moderately detailed study.||Considerable editing is needed to close gaps in content and solve "cleanup problems.||
(as of August 2014)
|Start"||An article that is developing, but which is quite incomplete. It might or might not cite adequate reliable sources.
|Provides some meaningful content, but most readers will need more.||Providing references to "reliable sources should come first; the article also needs substantial improvement in content and organisation. Also improve the grammar, spelling, writing style and improve the jargon use.||
(as of February 2014)
|Stub"||A very basic description of the topic. However, all very-bad-quality articles will fall into this category.
|Provides very little meaningful content; may be little more than a dictionary definition. Readers probably see insufficiently developed features of the topic and may not see how the features of the topic are significant.||Any editing or additional material can be helpful. The provision of meaningful content should be a priority. The best solution for a Stub-class Article to step up to a Start-class Article is to add in referenced reasons of why the topic is significant.||
(as of February 2013)
|"" "FL||The article has attained "featured list status.
|Professional standard; it comprehensively covers the defined scope, usually providing a complete set of items, and has annotations that provide useful and appropriate information about those items.||No further content additions should be necessary unless new information becomes available.||
(as of April 2014)
|List"||Meets the criteria of a "stand-alone list, which is an article that contains primarily a list, usually consisting of links to articles in a particular subject area.||There is no set format for a list, but its organization should be logical and useful to the reader.||Lists should be lists of live links to Wikipedia articles, appropriately named and organized.||
(as of January 2013)
|Future"||A topic about which details are subject to change often.
|Amount of meaningful content varies over time as the projected event draws near.||Material added might be speculation and should be carefully sourced.||
(as of July 2014)
|Book"||A collection of Wikipedia articles arranged as a book (see "Wikipedia Books).
|People who would like to read Wikipedia offline, or in print.||It is a good idea to team up with a "relevant WikiProject to gather feedback on books.||
(as of October 2011)
|Category"||Any "category falls under this class.||Categories are mainly used to group together articles within a particular subject area.||Large categories may need to be split into one or more subcategories. Be wary of articles that have been miscategorized.||"Category:Software|
|Disambig"||Any "disambiguation page falls under this class.||The page serves to distinguish multiple articles that share the same (or similar) title.||Additions should be made as new articles of that name are created. Pay close attention to the proper naming of such pages, as they often do not need "(disambiguation)" appended to the title.||
(as of July 2014)
|Template"||Any "template falls under this class. The most common types of template include "infoboxes and "navboxes.||Different types of template serve different purposes. Infoboxes provide easy access to key pieces of information about the subject. Navboxes are for the purpose of grouping together related subjects into an easily accessible format, to assist the user in navigating between articles.||Infoboxes are typically placed at the upper right of an article, while navboxes normally go across the very bottom of a page. Beware of too many different templates, as well as templates that give either too little, too much, or too specialized information.||"Template:Martial arts|
