Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.

The Reviewer Approved star is used when a member of the Nokia Developer's community reviews and approves of an article that they did not write. The purpose of this review is to create a member generated approval system so that other members may trust the articles and code examples on the Wiki.

Tip.pngTip: Approval is only for articles you really liked. If the article still has significant flaws don't add the approval - instead add comments suggesting fixes, or even better, fix the article yourself!

To review an article, first consider how useful it is, and assess its overall quality against the Help:Wiki Article Review Checklist. If you think the article has merit, then write a short two or three paragraph wiki comment for the article describing:

  • why you felt it a good article. For example perhaps you used the code example or you felt the article was very instructive or contained information that is not captured elsewhere
  • anything you felt could be improved

Finally, for articles that are of high quality copy-paste the following template at the top of the page to add the star and a timestamp (replacing any existing version of the template):

{{ReviewerApproved|user=your user id|timestamp={{subst:CURRENTTIMESTAMP}}|text=your review comments }}

If you think the article needs a lot of work to be acceptable, instead add the ArticleNeedsUpdate template:

{{ArticleNeedsUpdate|timestamp={{subst:CURRENTTIMESTAMP}}|user=~~~|Text explaining issues(required)}}
