This page coordinates efforts to proofread new pages and pages which have recently undergone a major rewrite. If you stumble across a page that could use proofreading, or if you finish creating/rewriting a page, you are strongly encouraged to list it here. Pages should not be listed here or tagged with proofreading templates until the content of the page is fully (or almost fully) complete; i.e., until they are in the "rough draft" phase.

How to list a page for proofreading[edit]

First of all, tag the page with {{subst:proofread}} - this will place the page in the category, Category:Pages in need of proofreading. Then, list the page in the New requests section using the following format:

=== PAGENAME ===
* '''Page:''' [[PAGENAME]]
* '''Requested by:''' ~~~~
* '''Status:''' Not yet proofread.
* '''Comments:''' Any comments that may help proofreaders.

Once the page has been thoroughly proofread and all grammatical, typographical, and stylistic mistakes removed, the request will be moved to the Completed requests section and the {{proofread}} tag removed. Proofreaders may also leave a note on the page's talk page about which version was finally found to be without further need of proofreading.

New requests[edit]

Please add new requests to the bottom of this section, and be sure to follow the above-specified format!
