Endorsing a judgment means that you support its conclusions, and gives you an opportunity to explain why you agree. Endorsements should not be tallied like votes, the preferred judgment is the correct one.
Endorsement comment
Usually this will be the endorsing editor's reasoning for agreeing with a judgment. Wikitext is allowed.
Collaboratively authored opinion about a wiki entity.
Judgment notes
Explains the judgment. The notes can be edited by anyone. Wikitext is allowed.
Judgment page
Any judgments about a wiki entity will be stored on a page with a title identifying the entity.
Judgment schema
Concrete scale on which an opinion is measured. This can be as simple as the answer to a yes/no question, "Q: Is this edit damaging? A: Yes.", or might allow several possible values such as one choice of "featured article", "good article", "stub article", "C", "B", or "A".
Judgment talk page
Each judgment page can have a corresponding Talk page, where the judgment is discussed and agreement is formed.
Preferred judgment
Only one judgment is correct (supported by consensus) for each schema. We support disagreements of opinion, conflicting judgments can be provided but only one is preferred at a given time.
Wiki entity
Something on-wiki which will be judged. Note that we make a distinction between two aspects of wiki edit: its "diff" and its snapshot which we call a "revision". A diff is the changes made, which might be damaging or good-faith. A revision is the article's content after an edit. In the future, other wiki entities may be judged, for example specific, logged admin actions.
