  • Participation: Out of 30 people who have signed up for this drive so far, 18 have participated. If you have signed up for the drive but have not yet participated, it isn't too late. If you haven't signed up for the drive, sign up now!
We Can Do It!.jpg
  • Progress report: Thus far we have reduced the number of May/June 2012 articles to just 124 articles, so we're on the right track. Unfortunately, for the first time in GOCE history, the number of articles in the backlog has actually gone up during this drive. While all participants are currently doing a fine job, we just don't have as many of them as we have had in the past. We have over 500 editors on our mailing list, but only 18 editors who have done a copy edit for the drive. If you're receiving this newsletter, it's because you have an interest in copy editing. Join the drive! Even if you only copy edit one article, it helps. Imagine how much progress we could make if everyone chipped in just one article.

Givors canal[edit]

  • "Zacharie had to borrow money to continue": He was forced to, he could not continue otherwise. He did not just choose to borrow rather than use his own funds
  • "A tunnel ... had been broken through solid rock": This paragraph describes the completed canal, after the work was done. "A tunnel ... was broken through solid rock" would be appropriate earlier, when describing the construction process.
  • CR/LF: When writing an article I repeatedly rearrange the text until I am comfortable with the sequence. This is easier to do if each sentence starts on a new line and if cites are always at the end of a line. There is no impact on what the reader sees. Removing CR/LFs may have some minuscule impact on response time, and may slightly change the way an old screen reader renders the page. Obviously an edit that only removes CR/LFs increases the WP database size. I don't see any point to it.

Aymatth2 (talk) 11:58, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

  • The above comment on old screen readers is incorrect. I am sure it used to be true - some of the old ones would say "new line" when they saw the CR/LF, although the newer ones would ignore it, as would the browsers. But if you look at a page that contains CR/LFs, like Louis Bignon, and use browser tools to view source, you will see they have been stripped off by the WP server. They are in the database, convenient for editors, but do not get sent. (This comment just added about 88,000 characters to the WP database by creating yet another version of your talk page. But space is cheap.) Aymatth2 (talk) 16:25, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mayday at 40,000 Feet!, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Christopher Norris (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Proposed deletion of Laurel Coppock[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Laurel Coppock has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I'm having trouble seeing this lady as more than just a jobbing actress who is below the WP:GNG threshold for inclusion here. The lead shows no reason for inclusion, nor does the main body of text. Without any extra information I cannot see the value to WIkipedia of this article remaining.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Laurel Coppock, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Second City (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Nomination of Laurel Coppock for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Laurel Coppock is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Laurel Coppock until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Fiddle Faddle 21:08, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

December Notes from the Guild of Copy Editors
Writing Magnifying.PNG

The December blitz ran from December 8–14. The theme for this blitz was articles tied in some way to religion. Seven editors knocked out 20 articles over the course of the week. Our next blitz will be in February, with a theme to be determined. Feel free to make theme suggestions at the Guild talk page!

The January 2014 Backlog elimination drive is a month-long effort to reduce the size of the copy edit backlog. The drive begins on January 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and ends on January 31 at 23:59 (UTC). Our goals are to copy edit all articles tagged in October and November 2012 and complete all requests placed before the end of 2013. Barnstars will be awarded to anyone who copy edits at least one article, and special awards will be given to the top five in the following categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", "Number of articles of over 5,000 words", "Number of articles tagged in October and November 2012", and "Longest article". We hope to see you there!

Clinton Ave station question[edit]

When you get a chance, would you be able to let me know where you found information for this edit? Thanks! Kevin Rutherford (talk) 00:35, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

It's from the book "Canal Boats, Interurbans & Trolleys, The Story of the Rochester Subway", by Ron Amberger, Dick Barrett, Greg Marling; published by the Rochester Chapter NRHS, copyright 1985, Library of Congress Card Number 80-82783, ISBN: 0-9605296-1-6. Text starts on page 61 and continues (after several photos) on page 65:
"Improvements and expansions of the subway were proposed throughout the war years. Among the proposals were the addition of another station at Clinton Avenue South ... The proposed Clinton Avenue station would have served as a major connection to the downtown business, theater and shopping districts as well as a major connection with existing bus routes ... the Clinton Avenue station was finally approved by the city council. By June 1943, plans had been drawn up for a wood and steel station. These plans were turned down by the War Production Board, and revised plans were submitted for a concrete station. The second set of plans was approved and the city council appropriated $101,000 for the construction of the station. By then, however, wartime restrictions on manpower and materials had become so severe that the plans were set aside."

2014 Scottish independence referendum[edit]

Thank you for your message. I reverted your change because as far as I can see the sentence "The 2014 Scottish independence referendum took place across Scotland on 18 September." already has the year in it and does not need to have it repeated at the end. I hope this clarifies matters. Britmax (talk) 00:36, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Removing whitespace[edit]

I'm curious what guideline you're referencing in this diff because I prefer the whitespace. It is my understanding that there is no guideline on whitespace, especially to be imposed by editors just passing through. czar  17:08, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Although there may not be a specific guideline concerning whitespace in the raw text of articles, most articles on Wikipedia limit the whitespace around section headings. In consultations I have had with several Wikipedia editors over the years, the reasons for this includes reducing the amount of data on Wikipedia servers, and also to improve performance, especially for Mobile users. Cheers. Truthanado (talk) 17:18, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
It's perhaps ten characters on a page and it makes the wikicode harder to navigate. It's a negligible amount of data and doesn't affect mobile performance at all. Automated editors are warned not to make whitespace edits to a page unless in-keeping with general fixes. I highly recommend not touching an article's whitespace unless there is consensus among its editors, especially if you don't plan to maintain the article. czar  18:20, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Copyeditors progress.png

Drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in November's Backlog Elimination Drive. Of the 43 people who signed up for this drive, 26 copy edited at least one article. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: The November Drive removed 26 requests from the Requests page and 509 articles from the {{copy edit}} backlog. We copy edited 83 articles tagged in the target months; July, August, and September 2013. Together with tag removals from articles unsuitable for copy editing, we eliminated July 2013 from the backlog and reduced August and September's tags to 61 and 70 respectively. As of 01:01, 1 December 2014 (UTC), the backlog stood at 1,974 articles, dipping below 2,000 for the first time in the Guild's history (see graph at right). Well done everyone!

Blitz: The December Blitz will run from December 14–20 and will focus on articles related to Religion, in recognition of this month's religious holidays in much of the English-speaking world. Awards will be given out to everyone who copy edits at least one of the target articles. Sign up here!

Election time again: The election of coordinators to serve from 1 January to 30 June 2015 is now underway. Candidates can nominate themselves or others from December 01, 00:01 (UTC), until December 15, 23:59. The voting period will run from December 16, 00:01 (UTC), until December 31, 23:59. You can read about coordinators' duties here. Please consider getting involved and remember to cast you vote—it's your Guild and it doesn't organize itself!

Thank you all once again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve anything without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Baffle gab1978, and Miniapolis.
