Page Name:

Template:Good article grading

The Good article grading template is used by the Good Article Committee to grade articles that have been nominated as Good articles on the DoveArchives. This template is written on the article's discussion page. 

Usage

{{subst:GAList|1a=|1b=|2a=|2b=|2c=|2d=|3a=|3b=|4=|5=|6a=|6b=|7=}}

or, full usage:

{{subst:GAList
|overcom=
|1a=
|1b=
|1com=
|2a=
|2b=
|2c=
|2d=
|2com=
|3a=
|3b=
|3com=
|4=
|4com=
|5=
|5com=
|6a=
|6b=
|6com=
|7=
|7com=
}}

Available arguments are y,n and ?; some synonyms are also available for these arguments; any other argument or no argument at all gives an undecided mark. Note that the template should be substituted, as the GA guidelines are reviewed from time to time and this template may be changed.

The template also allows comments to be added to the top of the review, and also to each numbered item, using additional parameters

 overcom, 1com, 2com, ... 7com.

See the example below for usage.

Example

{{subst:GAList
|overcom=This is a nice piece of work, but it still has some shortcomings with respect to the good article criteria.
|1a=y|1b=y
|2a=y|2b=n|2c=y|2d=y|2com=The sources are not sufficient to cover the controversial material in section 3
|3a=y|3b=y|4=?|4com=Is section 3 really neutral?
|5=y|6a=|6b=y|6com=I'm not convinced that the non-free use rationale for the photograph in section 5 is valid
|7=n|7com= Good luck improving the article}}

results in:

GA review (see here for what the criteria are
