Running Total[edit]

For reviews during the drive to count as a "point", you must log each and every article that you have reviewed below. To log articles, use the following template and include it below the "Totals" section. Please note that when inserting the URL and the article name, remember to leave a space between the two.

Because submissions can be reviewed more than once, when you have completed a review, please provide a link to the "oldid" of the accept or decline edit you made. To find the "oldid" of an article, go to the article/submission's history page (the tab can be found to the right of the "edit" tab). Once there, click on the edit that you made when you passed or failed the article. Copy the URL and place it under your name using the template below.

Use the following box to create a subpage, replacing user with your username : -

Then, add the links in the following format -

{{div col|cols=2}}
#[URL_TO_DIFF name_of_submission]
#[URL_TO_DIFF name_of_submission]
#[URL_TO_DIFF name_of_submission]
{{div col end}}

Alternatively, you can use the template {{diff}} to show the links.

Finally, add [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/October 2013 Backlog Elimination Drive/your username|Username]] to the page below, under the totals section

Reviewing Reviews[edit]

Teamwork Barnstar

To ensure quality remains priority, reviews of reviews will be conducted at random times. If a review is found to be not done properly or done poorly, the review will be deducted 2 points. Any user may review other user's reviews if they wish.

If you pass a review, Use: {{AFCDriveQC|{{SUBST:REVISIONUSER}}|P|<OptionalCommentary>}}
If you fail a review, Use: {{AFCDriveQC|{{SUBST:REVISIONUSER}}|F|<OptionalCommentary>}}

If a review is failed a third user shall review the same article and either pass or fail the article. If both users fail the review the aformentioned two points will be deducted from the users score. If the secondary reviewer passes the article no points will be deducted.

=== [[User:Username|Username]] ===
{{Div col|cols=3}}
# [URL GOES HERE article name goes here] {{AFCDriveQC|{{SUBST:REVISIONUSER}}|P|Article was correctly marked as copyright violation}}
#: [URL GOES HERE article name goes here] {{AFCDriveQC|{{SUBST:REVISIONUSER}}|F|No indication of notability}} {{AFCDriveQC|{{SUBST:REVISIONUSER}}|F|Copyvio}}
{{Div col end}}

Any user who reviews at least 25 reviews from any other user participating in the drive will receive the Teamwork Barnstar. Please note that if there are a lack of reviewers, distribution of awards at the end of the drive will be delayed until most of the reviews are reviewed.


This section lists users who have re-reviewed other users reviews. YesY means that the user has reviewed over 25 reviews.
