The work of this group is awaiting the start of the next offline release

The goal of this group is to review articles nominated for one of the WP:1.0 releases, according to the appropriate criteria. If a reviewed article meets those criteria, it is then removed from the nominations list and added to the version article list, and the talk page template is updated accordingly.

If you are new to reviewing, please take a look at the Reviewing FAQs.


These criteria can be summarized as follows:

Need: The article's importance, regardless of its quality

Top Subject is a must-have for a print encyclopaedia
High Subject contributes a depth of knowledge
Mid Subject fills in more minor details
Low Subject is peripheral knowledge, possibly trivial

We may choose not to include even a featured article, if the topic is too specialized for the particular release. Importance is of course both subjective and relative - for our purposes at the 1.0 project, the importance should be in terms of the whole of Wikipedia. In early releases we will focus on "Top" and "High" importance subjects, but the scope will widen as the size of the release grows.

The SelectionBot makes automatic selections using importance based on three "external interest" criteria, as well as the manual assessment. When reviewing manual nominations, it is advisable to examine the bot's scoring for the article. If an article scores extremely low in the bot's system (<700 for importance only), it is unlikely to be suitable.

An article on an important topic may be rejected if it is considered to be of poor quality. Articles are often assessed according to the WP:1.0 assessment scheme, and articles are usually expected to be B-Class or higher for anything other than very important topics.

Being a reviewer[edit]

The reviewer's job is to evaluate and process nominations. For version 0.9, the procedure for this is laid out at the side of the nominations page. If you're interested in helping out, thank you for giving your time! You don't need to have a college degree, we just want you to be honest and objective, and also supportive of the overall project. If you want to review please add your name to the list below.
