Articles pending something or point dispute[edit]

  • Haiti's banks reopen - The New Mikemoral (Unclear how much points, as lots of people copyedited/contributed). Latest version is worth 5, but this appears to be the version by Mikemoral, which is worth three.
To put it quite simply, The New Mikemoral should have got five points for this, if you check with the character count tool. It's just that he forgot to add the hidden categories that he should have. Could somebody please do this? --Rayboy8 (my talk) (my contributions) 17:28, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
I clearly see [[Category:The New Mikemoral (WWC2010)]] and [[Category:Writing contest 2010]] at the bottom. It been here a while tho. --Mikemoral♪♫ 17:48, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
Last prod, I think I should have 3 points before others added content. --Mikemoral♪♫ 03:35, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Done

Not sure, but the points table shows that I've written 22 articles, when in fact they are 26. :P Can someone check that please? --Diego Grez let's talk 21:57, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
