GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    There are written errors in the sentances including structural problems. For example in the introduction there are two sentances next door to each other both beginning with the phrase "The single...". The critical reception sections appears to have a distorted structure. Although paragraphs are present there is little subject to each paragraph and no link between them. Usually similar e.g. positive ones are group into one paragraph whilst negative ones appear in another. Also capital letter issues in the infobox.
    B. MoS compliance:
    Only minor issues here. On several occasions numbers less than ten are written in figures - these should be as words (grammer rule). The {{singlechart}} is used but omitted for the United States, this should be corrected for consistancy.
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. References to sources:
    Good range and well formatted.
    B. Citation of reliable sources where necessary:
    Almost spot on.
    C. No original research:
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    B. Focused:
  4. Is it neutral?
    Fair representation without bias:
    although there is little mention about international promotion of the song.
  5. Is it stable?
    No edit wars, etc:
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are copyright tagged, and non-free images have fair use rationales:
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:
    On hold as there is no major issues and with some tweaking it could be promoted to GA status.

Non-reviewer comments[edit]

  • At a first glance I noticed that the article has some unsourced information (the mention of the song being used in the Back-Up Plan film is unsourced).  Done
  • ""Tik Tok" was used to promote season six of Project Runway and was featured in the 2009 reboot of Melrose Place[29]. The song has also been featured on The Hills,[30] Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.[31] and most recently, The Back-Up Plan." <- That sentence/sentences is not grammatically correct.  Done
  • Is there any possible way for one of the two block quotes used in the Writing and inspiration section to be paraphrased? Done
  • The images used in the article should have alt text.  Done
  • Multiple references have overlink, a link to another Wikipedia article is only suppose to be linked once in the references section.  Done
  • There appears to be something wrong with the way reference 2 is formatted.  Done
  • A good portion of the references are not formatted correctly. MTV is published by Viacom and Billboard magazine is published by Nielsen Business Media, Inc etc etc.  Done
  • Another thing about the referencing is that in some references the citations have works and publishers and in others they just have works. The references need to be consistent with others, so either include just the works or works and publishers.  Done
  • The credits and personnel section needs some type of sourcing. Crystal Clear x3 07:23, 2 May 2010 (UTC) Done

Going over the article more thoroughly I noticed some more things.

  • "Acording to the sheet music published in" <- That sentence is not grammatically correct.  Done
  • Why are there two quote marks in the second block quote in the Writing and inspiration section?  Done
  • Also, why are the names of the publications she was interviewed by in the article? What notability do they have to be mentioned?  Done
  • In the composition section common time needs to be linked.  Done
  • In the Chart procession and succession section why is the chart table hidden? Crystal Clear x3 07:34, 2 May 2010 (UTC)  Done

I found some more problems with this article.

  • In the lead it says that the song is the debut single by Kesha, but that is not mentioned in the article.  Done
  • "It topped the chart on the issue dated January 2, 2010 as" <- there should be comma after 2010 and that sentence should be re-worded to something like "It topped the chart on the issue date of".  Done
  • The image in the music video section should be made bigger so that its easier to see.  Done
  • In the infobox it says that the song is a Dance-pop, electropop song, but in the composition section it cites the song as just being electropop.  Done
  • Diddy is over linked.  Done
  • In the composition section key should be linked to key (music).  DoneCrystal Clear x3 07:48, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
  • References should not be included in the lead.  Done
  • Kesha should be linked in the Writing and inspiration section.  Done
  • In the composition section beats per minute should be linked.  Done
  • The song's composition is not discussed very much in the composition section, are there any reliable sources that discusses anything about the songs content?  DoneCrystal Clear x3 08:00, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
