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)

Hey Quack guru, WTF are you harassing Olive for this time? Without specifying what article you are concerned about how can anyone know what your problem is. And why are you warning her? Have you ever heard the adage, "don't template the regulars?" Montanabw(talk) 22:23, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

I was notified as well, apparently for making two edits to the Deepak Chopra article. I removed "New age guru" as his occupation in the info box and a quote from Demi Moore who said she expected to live to be 130, used to support the criticism of Chopra's statement that he expected to live beyond 100. Slim Virgin was notified as well. She has attempted to rein in the criticism in the Chopra article, but apparently she finally gave up. Gandydancer (talk) 11:56, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Prem Rawat again[edit]

Hi LittleOlive! A neutral voice is needed to comment on the latest issue on the Prem Rawat talk-page, concerning the WAF-Event (which seems to be scaled by Francis Schonken mainly on the basis of number of participants) and the 'Ambassador of Peace'-denomination. Meanwhile I'm trying to find data and sources for the 'Ambassador of Peace'. Would you like to join?--Rainer P. (talk) 10:09, 27 June 2014 (UTC) Also, Surdas and Sylviecyn are denigrating the subject and his supporters (of which I am the only one working on the article) unremittingly with impunity, without contributing to the article, and I feel like I am not ready to continue if this goes on. And I had gotten topic-banned for 'battle-ground-behavior'! Who can I turn to? --Rainer P. (talk) 17:22, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Rainer.... I'm not on WP much these days, family things to take care, so i can't promise to much on this. So sorry.(Littleolive oil (talk) 23:16, 29 June 2014 (UTC))

Hope things go well for you, Olive! BTW Francis Schonken has got involved in the stalled Rawat article and is helping to develop things in a fairly acceptable way. So, there is a neutral voice already and you can be a little unburdened. Cheers!--Rainer P. (talk) 20:27, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
