  • Well-written -the prose is clear and concise, respects copyright laws, and the spelling and grammar are correct; and it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation.
  • Verifiable with no original research: it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline; it provides in-line citations from reliable sources for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines; and it contains no original research.
  • Broad in its coverage: it addresses the main aspects of the topic; and it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style).
  • Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without bias, giving due weight to each.
  • Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.

  • Disambig links: 2 fixs needed for
  1. Veles
  2. Dimitrije Đorđević
  • Reference check: No issues

Comments:Another well-written article with very few problems. It does seem to touch upon every major aspect of his life, but it also focuses on the details in an appropriate and balanced way. The article appears to be of neutral stance, since the leanings of the writer cannot be identified. The prose has very few stand out issues, the only sentence about his return to civilian life, arrest and escape appeared to be a problem. That sentence in particular is too loaded to work well. Another issue is the translation of the song, is this from an official translation or is this something you translated? A source would help as well. Now I've got one last issue, the rank in the infobox, should it be given in English in parenthesis? Overall, very few fixes are needed to promote this to GA, so I'll place this on hold.

Hi, Chris. I've re-worded the sentence in question and removed the song so the article stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail. The rank of vojvoda literally means warlord. High quality articles such as Pavle Đurišić and Kosta Pećanac use parenthesis for the rank.
I believe that's all. Thanks for taking the time to review this article. 23 editor (talk) 00:59, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
I've also fixed the Dimitrije Đorđević link. I couldn't find the Veles disambig link you were referring to. Veles is linked twice in the article (once in the infobox and once in the "early life" section) and both times it is Veles (city). 23 editor (talk) 01:08, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
