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)

Please self revert your latest rule breaking edit at the above article per the extant admin imposed sanctions - thanks. -Roxy the dog™ (resonate) 16:17, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

I reverted per the RfC. Do you have a concern with that, and if so why? You are certainly free to open anther discussion. Why don't you have a problem with editors adding content that is clearly not supported by the RfC. Maybe I missed something. Let me know If I did.(Littleolive oil (talk) 16:36, 19 March 2015 (UTC))
To enforce an arbitration decision and for Joining an edit war at Ayurveda, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block or other sanctions.

If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing blocks (specifically this section) before appealing. Place the following on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Please copy my appeal to the [[WP:AE|arbitration enforcement noticeboard]] or [[WP:AN|administrators' noticeboard]]. Your reason here OR place the reason below this template. ~~~~}}. If you intend to appeal on the arbitration enforcement noticeboard I suggest you use the arbitration enforcement appeals template on your talk page so it can be copied over easily. You may also appeal directly to me (by email), before or instead of appealing on your talk page. 

Reminder to administrators: In May 2014, ArbCom adopted a procedure instructing administrators as follows: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped."

This user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who accepted the request.

Littleolive oil (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)

Request reason:

Hi John. I would like to request an unblock. I had no idea the ORR rule was still in effect. Although, I hadn't seen anything that said it wasn't. Its been a while, October I think, since it was implemented and the whole thing was not in mind when I reverted, and as I said Roxy's cmt here did not seem like helpful information; had I thought it was I would have reverted immediately. I would never deliberately challenge such a restriction, with this information won't again, and do apologize for contributing to your work load. I probably owe Roxy an apology as well.

Accept reason:

Thanks for your assurances and no hard feelings. John (talk) 16:16, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

Thanks John. I appreciate this very much.(Littleolive oil (talk) 20:49, 20 March 2015 (UTC))

I apologise, but I have tidied up an obvious error on this page. I hope you don't mind. I actually wanted to say that you owe me nothing, certainly no apology is required. Note to John - I would support an unblock, noting Olive's comments above. -Roxy the dog™ (resonate) 12:41, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks Roxy; that's kind and very generous, but I do owe you an apology. I should have assumed good faith. No problem with the clean up. Thanks for that.(Littleolive oil (talk) 13:12, 20 March 2015 (UTC))

Ayurveda context - proposal?[edit]

Again, my apologies.

Looking at your comments closer, I was out of line. I see how you're deviating from the others' comments, saying that there should be some context, rather than agreeing that sources and points of view should be completely excluded. Maybe it would help to make some proposals? --Ronz (talk) 20:10, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm somewhat reluctant to get involved much more with that article and discussion. I'll see in the next few days.Thanks.(Littleolive oil (talk) 02:09, 25 March 2015 (UTC))
I don't blame you. Thanks again for your patience and understanding. --Ronz (talk) 16:38, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Precious again[edit]

Cornflower blue Yogo sapphire.jpg

Thank you for spicing the project with the ingredients "civility, kindness, a sense of humour", for writing about love as cure, for supporting editors who are silenced, and for the line "This is the encyclopedia anyone can edit" means that all editors should be treated fairly . This is not yet the encyclopedia anyone can edit, let's work on it, - repeating: you are an awesome Wikipedian (18 March 2009)!
