Review and assessment[edit]

  • Leon Daniel Recently underwent a deletion discussion and I have subsequently cleaned up and improved the article with relevant sources. Could use some more attention, and beginning with a review and assessment would be helpful. Thanks. I, Jethrobot drop me a line 18:37, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Wolfgang Harich Could anyone be able to assess this for me? I expanded this stub for a class project and a peer review is required, so the sooner the better! Thanks!
  • Steven Emerson -- can someone assess? thanks.--Epeefleche (talk) 07:36, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Joel Chandler Harris -- Would someone mind assessing this article? Thank you! J L Shakespeare (talk) 17:45, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Paul Colin (journalist) -- Would someone from this WikiProject rate the importance of the article to complete the WP Journalism template on its talkpage? Adamdaley (talk) 06:39, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Rob Capriccioso Can another independent editor assess article nominated for deletion? --Hochungra (talk) 21:12, 23 December 2010 (UTC)--Hochungra (talk) 21:12, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Javed Malik -- Have asked at WikiProject Pakistan for a review of the YouTube videos by someone who can understand the language and if they are a reliable source, they do show that Malik was on TV as per the statement in the article. They were provided by an outside party via email as a source for the statement about Malik. As well, any help to make sure the biography has a NPOV tone. I just helped with the wiki markup as per the email on the talk page. It seems like the article if written properly should be of significant importance from the email content. I think the citations needed templates could be removed now but will get another to do that to make sure it is OK. Thank you kindly.SriMesh | talk 20:39, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Serial (podcast), investigative journalism, long-form audio storytelling, exploring 1999 murder case over a whole season. Accepted for DYK 23 October 2014. I tagged it when it was still a stub, then changed it to start class, but it needs an assessment for class and importance. — Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 07:30, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Spin Alternative Record Guide, just created, no grade. Dan56 (talk) 07:48, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I've noticed a number of redlinks to some well-respected Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists from over the years, and am hoping to fill in some of the blanks. Would love to have input from some folks from the Journalism project here! Looks like there's a sizable backlog for assessments so I won't clog it up further, but the first one created was Louis Stark, if anyone would like to take a swing at it. If anyone has an interest in taking on some more of the reviews/assessments for these, I can keep you posted on the new articles as I create them - thanks!
