Requests may be declined if the article is:

November 2015[edit]

Syndicate (2012 video game)[edit]

The article needs some copyediting, especially with the use of tenses and plurals, flow and wordiness. I would like to push this to GAN. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! AdrianGamer (talk) 15:03, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

James Wood Bush[edit]

I would like to promote this article to Good status, so a copy edit would be very helpful. Thank you for your consideration. KAVEBEAR (talk) 05:39, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Kamiya Kaoru[edit]

I plan to nominate "Kamiya Kaoru" into a Good Article, but my prose is not too good so a copyedit would be necessary.Tintor2 (talk) 20:00, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Murder of Anni Dewani[edit]

Article needs a complete review. c/e, structure, prose, etc. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 12:45, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Blue Gardenia (album)[edit]

Hoping to receive a copy edit for this short article. Thank you for your consideration. --Another Believer (Talk) 00:27, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Sonam Kapoor[edit]

Hoping for someone to copy-edit it thoroughly (from top-to-bottom). If you would like to make some extra changes not related to c/e, such as paraphrasing, please go ahead! -- Frankie talk 14:32, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Battle of Jajau[edit]

I would promote it to GA. RRD13 দেবজ্যোতি (talk) 09:00, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:15, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Murder of Meredith Kercher[edit]

Now that this case has slowed down I think it is time for c/e and structure work for this article.--BabbaQ (talk) 10:09, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

List of submissions to the 87th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film[edit]

This is a list and it would be excellent if the list's lead section could be copyedited with the help of editors. Poon (talk) 16:20 21 November 2015


I would very much appreciate a copy edit of this new article before nominating it for Good status. (I have two nominations listed above, but one has already received a review.) --Another Believer (Talk) 18:58, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

It's the subject of a deletion discussion, although it looks like it's staying. Miniapolis 18:42, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

That We Can Play[edit]

I'd would prefer for a copyeditor to see what they could do in order for the prose (or other related aspects of the article) to reach FA status. Yes, I know the article's a little short, but this is the maximum amount of coverage that has been revealed from reliable sources, and the length doesn't matter too much in featured articles as long as much amounts of info important to the main subject as possible is present. Just wanted to clarify that. 和DITOREtails 02:23, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

J. R. Kealoha[edit]

GA article that i'd like to eventually nominate for FAC. I need a detailed pair of eyes to go through the article and catch any missing grammar and copy-editing issues, so other future reviewers can focus more on the content side of the article instead of the grammar. Thanks! KAVEBEAR (talk) 06:08, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Jonah Kapena[edit]

I would like to promote this article to Good status, so a copy edit would be very helpful. Thank you for your consideration. KAVEBEAR (talk) 06:13, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Bhale Bhale Magadivoy[edit]

Though not as small as my previous request Pelli Chesi Choodu, this is also a relatively small article about an Indian Telugu comedy film. Requires a thorough c/e so that i can go ahead with the GA nomination process. Yours sincerely, Pavanjandhyala (talk) 17:10, 28 November 2015 (UTC)  Working Corinne (talk) 19:46, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Bicycle kick[edit]

Recently passed GA review. It already had a prior copyedit work. GA reviewer suggested the article's use of quotes be further minimized (through paraphrases). In addition to paraphrasing, grammar improvements (for a more fluid, clearer) prose would also be appreciated. Thank you!--MarshalN20 Talk 21:13, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

yellow tickY Partly done - Have completed copy-editing of prose and grammar; very little, if any, work on quotations. Cheers, Drcrazy102 (talk) 04:56, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

2004–05 S.L. Benfica season[edit]

Needs a copyedit to improve readability and consistency.--Threeohsix (talk) 15:30, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Trevor Kincaid[edit]

In a GA review of this article, the reviewer noted that, in the list of selected publications, "Some of these are online (although possibly paywalled); the online versions can be found through Google scholar and it would be helpful to link them here. It is also standard when citing academic papers to include volume and issue numbers; these are given for some but not all of the references. The formatting is not exactly Wikipedia's Citation Style 1 or CS2, but close enough and (except for the volume/issues) consistent enough." I am not familiar enough with WP's citation styles to accurately fix this and would appreciate any assistance.
