GOCE March 2012 Backlog Elimination progress graphs

Greetings from the Guild of Copy Editors March 2012 Backlog elimination drive! Here's the mid-drive newsletter.

Participation: We have had 58 people sign up for this drive so far, which compares favorably with our last drive, and 27 have copy-edited at least one article. If you have signed up but have not yet copy-edited any articles, please consider doing so. Every bit helps! If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late. Join us!

Progress report: Our target of completing the 2010 articles has almost been reached, with only 56 remaining of the 194 we had at the start of the drive. The last ones are always the most difficult, so thank you if you are able to help copy-edit any of the remaining articles. We have reduced the total backlog by 163 articles so far.

Special thanks: Special thanks to Stfg, who has been going through the backlog and doing some preliminary vetting of the articles—removing copyright violations, doing initial clean-up, and nominating some for deletion. This work has helped make the drive a more pleasant experience for all our volunteers.

Your drive coordinators – Dianna (talk), Stfg (talk), and Dank (talk)

Declaring a COI[edit]

Hello,

I want to start by assuring you that I absolutely respect your privacy, and I have no intention of violating it in any way. I also believe that declaring a conflict of interest does not threaten one's privacy. One may simply say, "I have a COI in such-and-such topic," without specifying what the COI entails and without revealing any personal information at all. Besides being better for Wikipedia, declaring a COI is likely to garner respect and cooperation from editors who will consider it a sign of honesty and good faith. I believe we can value the consensus on WP:COI while also valuing the privacy of editors. With all this in mind, would you please declare a COI?

Regards, Manul ~ talk 02:58, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Perhaps you'd like to clarify what you are suggesting. I am not paid to edit and I edit neutrally. You realize that you, an editor I have no memory of working with and know nothing about has come on to my user page, declared I have a COI, and wants me to admit to it. I find that more than strange.(Littleolive oil (talk) 03:34, 20 January 2015 (UTC))
Hi, to clarify then, would you please declare a COI in the topic of Transcendental Meditation? I absolutely respect your privacy, and I have no intention of violating it in any way. I just believe it is best for Wikipedia when COIs are declared. Manul ~ talk 03:44, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

No. I edit neutrally and probably more neutrally than many. Do I know a fair amount about TM and its sources, yes. I also know a fair amount about art, and for example the painter Odd Nerdrum. I am a gymnastic expert and edit there every now and then. Do I have a COI there. No I don't. I am an avid rock climber. No COI there either. Don't confuse knowledge with COI.(Littleolive oil (talk) 03:56, 20 January 2015 (UTC))
