These peer review volunteers have signed up to give feedback. Ask 2–3 of them in a nice and persuasive way to increase your chances. Taking a moment to appreciate and compliment their work here might not hurt, if you're sincere about it. If you haven't heard back from them (watch their talk pages) in a reasonable time, then ask more than 2–3 for help. Try editors in the article's subject area and be patient. If you sign up for the list, place yourself in the category you think you're most likely to do peer reviews for.[1] Posting at an associated Wikiproject (also listed below) could help. Copy editors are listed at the bottom. Volunteers can add the userbox {{User peer reviews}}.
