Process[edit]

This is an optional first stage for the FA process, more importantly a way to improve an article's quality over time.

Example: A user or group of users have extensive knowledge of a certain subject in the Marioverse (i.e. Game/Character) and want to improve the article to FA status.

  1. User(s) ask two reviewers for scores using {{PAIRreview}}, judging article on accuracy (facts), depth (details), grammar, images (# and quality), and formatting (organized) on a scale from 0-4 in .5 increments, on the talk page of the article. They should use {{PAIRrequest}} for efficiency. A final rating out of 20 is given by adding the individual ratings. Reviewers in the comments give suggestions for improvement, or what they disliked.
  2. Article is worked on for one week, then the same two reviewers review it again. If there are no changes after a week, the users have to seek the reviewers when they are ready for another review session, but they must wait at least one week, even if they are ready (preferably, there's always something to improve)
  3. Review can be justified by users working on article and by other reviewer as reasonable to be considered official, but since this is a general gist of the article's quality, and scores do not matter when nominating the article as an FA, it is not necessary to justify.

In the end, it is up to the users who want an article to be the best it can be and the reviewers to help them – they must work together.
