Rater aids in assessing articles with {{WikiProject Whatever}} templates. It places a "Rate" button next to the watchlist switch, which brings up a dialog box assisting with article assessment. In addition to that, when visiting a category of unassessed articles, Rater changes links in the category to point to their respective article pages, rather than talk pages.

Warning: Rater is currently in a somewhat unstable state; it is advisable to check the preview, raw source editor or refresh the talk page to check whether the tool works correctly. Browsers other than Chromium have not been tested. There are missing features and the UI is still subject to random changes. Consider adding the script to your watchlist. To make sure you use the latest version, WP:BYPASS your browser cache.


Push the "Install" button in the infobox and save the page. Alternatively, you can manually copy and paste the following into Special:MyPage/common.js:

importScript('User:Kephir/gadgets/rater.js'); // [[User:Kephir/gadgets/rater]]

Bugs can be reported on Keφr's or the tool's talkpage.
