||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.
||Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon
||The article is well organized and essentially complete.
||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.
||Kingdom of Atovia
||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 also be considered if practical, and the article checked for general compliance with the Manual of Style and related style guidelines.
||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.
|More detailed criteria|
|The article is better developed in style, structure, and quality than Start-Class, but fails one or more of the criteria for B-Class. It may have some gaps or missing elements; need editing for clarity, balance, or flow; or contain policy violations, such as bias or original research. Articles on fictional topics are likely to be marked as C-Class if they are written from an in-universe perspective.||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.
||Kingdom of Pibocip
||An article that is developing, but which is quite incomplete and, most notably, lacks adequate reliable sources.
|More detailed criteria|
|The article has a usable amount of good content but is weak in many areas, usually in referencing. Quality of the prose may be distinctly unencyclopedic, and MoS compliance non-existent; but the article should satisfy fundamental content policies, such as notability and BLP, and provide enough sources to establish verifiability. No Start-Class article should be in any danger of being speedily deleted.||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.
||A very basic description of the topic.
|More detailed criteria|
|The article is either a very short article or a rough collection of information that will need much work to become a meaningful article. It is usually very short; but, if the material is irrelevant or incomprehensible, an article of any length falls into this category.||Provides very little meaningful content; may be little more than a dictionary definition.
||Any editing or additional material can be helpful. The provision of meaningful content should be a priority.
||Loveland Conquest of Ohio
||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 MicroWiki articles, appropriately named and organized.
||List of micronations in Ohio
||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.
||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.
||Any non-article page that fits no other classification.
||The page contains no article content, and is probably not useful to any casual reader.
||Look out for misclassified articles. Currently many NA-class articles need to be re-classified.
