The peer review department of WikiProject Horror conducts peer reviews of articles upon request. The primary objective is to encourage better articles by having contributors who may not have worked on articles examine them and provide ideas for further improvement.

The peer review process is highly flexible and can deal with articles of any quality; however, requesting reviews on very short articles may not be productive, as there is little for readers to comment on.

All reviews are conducted by fellow editors—usually members of WikiProject Horror.


Requesting a review

  1. Add peer-review=yes to the {{HorrorWikiProject}} project banner at the top of the article's talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax).
  2. From there, click on the "request has been made" link that appears in the template. This will open a page to discuss the review of your article.
  3. Place === [[Name of article]] === at the top.
  4. Below it, note the kind of comments/contributions you want, and/or the sections of the article you think need reviewing and sign by using four tildes (~~~~).
  5. Add {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Review/Name of nominated article}} at the top of the list of requests on this page.

If an article is listed for a second (or third, and so forth) peer review:

  1. Move (do not copy) the existing peer review subpage ([[Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Review/Name of nominated article]]) to an archive ([[Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Review/Name of nominated article/Archive]]). If there is already an archive review there, then move the existing peer review subpage to Archive 1, Archive 2, etc. Always place a prominent link the previous and next archives at the top of each page.
  2. Follow the instructions for making a request above (editing [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Review/Name of nominated article]], which will be a redirect to the archive, into a new request page).
  3. Be sure to provide a prominent link to the last archive at the top of the request (e.g. "Prior peer review [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Review/Name of nominated article/Archive|here]].").

Responding to a request

Everyone is encouraged to comment on any request listed here. To comment on an article, please add a new section (using ==== Your user name ====) for your comments, in order to keep multiple responses legible.


Reviews should be archived after they have been inactive for some time, or when the article is nominated as a featured article candidate. To archive a review:

  1. Replace peer-review=yes with old-peer-review=yes in the {{HorrorWikiProject}} project banner template at the top of the article's talk page.
  2. Remove {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Review/Name of nominated article}} from the Requests section below.
