Investigation: Creating a gadget/extension to make it easier for users to do article assessments for WikiProjects
Open, NormalPublic

Description

There are several user scripts out there to give users a friendly interface for doing WikiProject article assessments. Please answer the following questions:

  1. What user scripts or other tools already exist?
  2. Are any of these good enough to promote into a gadget or extension?
  3. Would this be useful to WikiProjects? Is there a need for this?
  4. Would it make more sense to try to build wiki-specific gadgets for this or an extension that could be configured for any wiki? What are the pluses and minuses?
  5. What is the ArticleAssessmentPilot (which become ArticleFeedback and then ArticleFeedbackv5) extension that was built by the Public Policy Project. Does it have anything to do with article assessment for WikiProjects?

@Harej: Yes, apparently there are 3 or 4 userscripts already out there. They all have shortcomings though, and currently none have been promoted as gadgets (on en.wiki at least). Kephir's user script is probably the most ambitious, but it also has a pretty scary user interface.
