Running total[edit]

Only pass/fail will be recognized as completing a review. If necessary, you can put the article on hold if the article needs to be edited further to be passed. Once you have passed or failed the article after putting it on hold, then include your review below. Quick-fails will not be counted. Article reviews started before December 31 but completed after December 31 are eligible to be counted into the running total. Reviews started before December 1 do not count. Please state if the article is a pass, fail, or on hold. Make sure you follow up on holds.

Articles marked with an asterisk (*) indicates an inquiry by a co-ordinator is taking place.
