June 2016[edit]

Cheers (season 7)[edit]

Once I complete filling in the whole article, feel free to remove anything that is too trivial or less helpful to readers, especially some parts of summaries. Everything else also needs copy editing. George Ho (talk) 17:39, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

On hold; as of my timestamp the article is displaying an "under construction" template. @George Ho:, please inform us when you've finished working on this article; there's not much point doing a full c/e while the article is still "under construction". Please feel free to discuss this request on REQ talk. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 04:03, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
The tag is removed. George Ho (talk) 21:57, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks George; I'll struck my "on hold" notice. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 22:40, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
 Working Might take a few days, but it'll get done. -Pax Verbum 14:21, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

July 2016[edit]

Quantum Break[edit]

The article is in need of thorough copyediting, especially on the article's flow, tenses and plurals, before I nominated the article for GA. Help would be appreciated. Thanks! AdrianGamer (talk) 10:25, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

 Working --Thnidu (talk) 01:14, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Just checking: is Thnidu still working on this? Last edit was a week ago, and Thnidu has been working on other articles since. --Stfg (talk) 09:24, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
@Stfg: Yes, I am, and thank you for the reminder. --Thnidu (talk) 13:22, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Fragments of Him[edit]

Fragments of Him is currently a GAN. I'd like an in-depth copyedit to bolster the integrity of the article. Anarchyte (work | talk) 10:24, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Vasilije Ojdanić[edit]

Article is in need of c/e, structure work, fan-cruft removal etc. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 12:54, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

As things are, this guy fails to meet the WP:MUSIC notability guidelines. He's an amateur singer who is good at big-upping himself, not a major (or even minor) Montenegrin pop star. Robyn2000 (talk) 14:10, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Alexandra Pascalidou[edit]

Article needs c/e, definitely some structure work, and removal of unsourced of speculative material. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 20:05, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Anbe Vaa[edit]

Planning to take this to FAC before its lead actor turns 100 next January. Kailash29792 (talk) 07:02, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

PlatinumGames[edit]

The article is in need of thorough copyediting, especially on the article's tenses and its general flow, before I nominated the article for GA. Help would be appreciated. Thanks! AdrianGamer (talk) 07:59, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

2012 (film)[edit]

Requesting copy edit of John Cusack's 2009 science fiction film 2012. Thanks. NeoBatfreak (talk) 07:01, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine[edit]

Just finished rewriting the whole article. I'd like a copyedit before I nominate it for GA. Thanks! Anarchyte (work | talk) 08:51, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Don't worry, I'll request one after the GAN. Please archive this request. Anarchyte (work | talk) 01:29, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
GAN is over. A quick spelling and grammatical check would be appreciated. Anarchyte (work | talk) 14:25, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

John F. Kennedy[edit]

I am requesting a copy-edit of the article which at this point is only rated a C class. It really should be brought up to GA (which I hope to have time for someday), but at this point, B class would be an improvement and a new pair of eyes on it, never hurts. The sfn conversion of all the cites would be good, as well. Cheers, Kierzek (talk) 14:02, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Chad Harris-Crane[edit]

Requesting a copy edit for this article before putting it for FAC. I know that this was recently copy edited, but I would greatly appreciate another look before I nominate this. Aoba47 (talk) 03:45, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Amor Prohibido (song)[edit]

Hoping to bring this article to FAC after a c/e of the article is completed. Thanks – jona 20:38, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Love, Inc.[edit]

This is an article on a short-lived sitcom. I have recently heavily expanded the article over the course of a couple hours and would greatly appreciate a thorough copyedit before I put this for for GAN. Thank you in advance! Aoba47 (talk) 22:33, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Comment
This article has recently been promoted as a GA. I would still appreciate a c/e, as I would like to one day take this to FAC (It would be awesome to promote an obscure and short-lived sitcom to the level of an FA). As always, thank you in advance~ Aoba47 (talk) 20:16, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

USS Tucker (DD-374)[edit]

Requesting general copy edit – expect to nominate for GA. Thanks. Pendright (talk) 01:26, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Chhinnamasta[edit]

Chhinnamasta is a self-decapitated Hindu goddess, who holds her severed head in her hand and drinks blood from her wound. A GA since 2010, the article was recently expanded with a dream of being a FA. Request for a copyeditor, who is unfamiliar with Hinduism so that we can know if a non-Hindu understands the article, which has some jargon. Redtigerxyz Talk 16:31, 13 July 2016 (UTC)  Working  – Corinne (talk) 04:34, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Laguna del Maule (volcano)[edit]

Another one of my volcano-related articles, just freshly launched. I am planning to bring this to GA(N) but I'd like someone with good prose and flow skills to take a stab at the article first.Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 22:22, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

The Day After Tomorrow[edit]

Requesting copy edit on Dennis Quaid's film The Day After Tomorrow. Thanks. NeoBatfreak (talk) 02:17, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Taftan Volcano[edit]

Another volcano related article I am hoping to bring up for GA nomination, and that requires a look over by someone more experienced with text flow (among other things). Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 10:09, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Sabrina Sidney[edit]

I'm hoping to put Sabrina Sidney forward for FA, but I've no confidence in my writing skills. It's an interesting story, she was chosen from an orphanage at the age of 12 by a man who hoped to turn her into his perfect wife, eventually subjecting her to hardships (such as dripping hot wax on her) to improve her fortitude. He finally dumped her because she wore an outfit he didn't like and she married his best friend! WormTT(talk) 11:07, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Andha Naal[edit]

I plan on taking this milestone Tamil film to FA status. Kailash29792 (talk) 06:14, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Tell All Your Friends[edit]

I'm planning to nominate this for GA status. Yeepsi (talk) 21:42, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Néstor Kirchner[edit]

President of Argentina from 2003 to 2007. Cambalachero (talk) 03:15, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Poses (album)[edit]

I'd like to revisit this article and re-nominate for Good article status soon. I would very much appreciate a copy edit before going through the nomination process. Thanks for your consideration. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:30, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

2010 German Grand Prix[edit]

I request a copy-edit on this article before I take it to GAN. MWright96 (talk) 20:50, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Metro: Last Light[edit]

The article is in need of thorough copyediting, especially on the article's flow, tenses and plurals, before I nominated the article for GA. Help would be appreciated. Thanks! AdrianGamer (talk) 06:48, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Shannen Says[edit]

I have recently created an article for this reality television show, and I would greatly appreciate a c/e before I put it for GAN. Thank you in advance! Aoba47 (talk) 00:40, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Shriya Pilgaonkar[edit]

It would be very kind if someone would be interested in copy editing the article. It's a short BLP article. The copy editing is required because the article has been nominated for DYK. It's been there in the list for quite many weeks. Early copy editing as soon as possible would be appreciated. Minimising the number and size of the quotations in the article would also be very appreciated. But please don't remove all quotations. Only remove quotations which are least important. Mr. Smart ℒION☎️⋡ 04:46, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Packy (mural)[edit]

Requesting a copy edit for this new and relatively short article, which I've nominated for Good status. Thanks for your consideration. --Another Believer (Talk) 16:47, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

2014 Japanese Grand Prix[edit]

I have recently expanded this article but I would like a copy-edit to check grammar and prose before I take to GAN. MWright96 (talk) 09:04, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
