Adopt lolcat.jpg

Hi Wiki Roxor! Now that I have formally adopted you, you may display {{Adoptee|Cameron}} on your userpage. This will generate a userbox stating you are my adoptee. Adoption is for new or inexperienced users to

  • Ask questions about editing
  • Learn to navigate processes and policies
  • Get help with article creation or image uploads

or any other activities on Wikipedia, then I should be able to help you. Adoption lasts as long as you and I wish it to continue, so you can stop any time if you feel you've learned enough, or you'd like to take a break.

Basically, you continue to edit Wikipedia as you are at the moment and contact me whenever you have a problem or question on my talk page. Ask as many questions you like, it's free! ;) Regards,

You're doing well already. I can only recommend NPP. Make sure you read WP:NPP first though! :) --Cameron* 16:15, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Wow, I see you've been fixing typos and reverting vandalism. It's great to see you're also warning the vandals. Some people are so quick to revert they let the vandals get off scot free! Also, spoken wiki, I'm impressed! --Cameron* 09:46, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! :) Im trying to do some small things like cleaning up vandalism and stuff when I have a little free time. Spoken wiki is taking some more time to finish as it does require complete focus on it. Wiki Roxor (talk) 14:45, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
Hi Roxor! I used to know how to do it but the system changed. Might I direct you to User:Xenocidic who is the our expert on all things status templates. Regards, --Cameron* 15:24, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Copy-edit request[edit]

Hi, I don't know if you're busy or anything, but I was planning on taking List of Dexter episodes to FLC. Since you did such great copy-editing work on James Wilson and Jon Cryer, I was thinking that maybe you could take a final lookover before I nominate it. Thanks.--Music26/11 14:31, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Wow, it has really been a while... another copy-editor has worked on the page. But I appreciate your response. Thanks.--Music26/11 14:47, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey, I just remembered. If you are not to busy, could you take a look at the "North by North Quahog" article? I would like to take it to FAc in a few days.--Music26/11 15:11, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Great! Thank you very much. Also, greetings from Sweden :D.--Music26/11 10:04, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi again, I'm working to get "The Ex-Girlfriend" to FAC, are you interested in providing some copy-editing help?--Music26/11 16:27, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes I still need it; it would be great. By the way, "North by North Quahog" has been promoted to FA status.--Music26/11 14:50, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
Hi, I didn't notice you had already copy-edited part of the article until now. Because it took you a while, I had contacted another editor, who has just wrapped up his ce. I don't mean to insult or replace you or anything of the kind, but I somehow missed your help, which I still greatly appreciate. The article is currently at FAC, in case you were interested. And thanks again.--Music26/11 21:52, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Adoption Offer[edit]

I would be very grateful for any help that you can give me! I'm still learning to navigate the WP processes and policies, and am trying to do some anti-vandalism (as I have an opportunity to). Any help you can provide, especially with increasing article standards and making the wikified would be helpful. I'm active in spurts (usually about once a week) and try to at least monitor my contributions, userpage and talkpage. Thanks a lot! Frmatt (talk) 19:39, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Hey! I saw you as a member on the Guild of Copy-Editors and am wondering if you could help me out with an article I am working on, the Nobel Prize. A quite important article since, many link to it etc. I think the content is starting to get good but it really needs some copy-editing and sourcing love. Do you have any chance to help out? --Esuzu 21:59, 15 January 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Esuzu (talkcontribs)

Copyedit Backlog Elimination Drive[edit]

Hi, as a member of the Guild of Copy Editors you're hereby notified of and invited to participate in the WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors/Backlog elimination drives/May 2010.

Grab some glory, and a barnstar[edit]

Hi, I'd like to invite you to participate in the Guild of Copy Editors July 2010 Backlog Elimination Drive. In May, about 30 editors helped remove the {{copyedit}} tag from 1175 articles. The backlog is still over 7500 articles, and extends back to the beginning of 2008! We really need your help to reduce it. Copyediting just a couple articles can qualify you for a barnstar. Serious copyeditors can win prestigious and exclusive rewards. See the event page for more information. And thanks for your consideration. ɳorɑfʈ Talk! 15:41, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

GOCE Backlog Elimination Drive Wrap-up[edit]

Greetings from the Guild of Copy Editors July 2010 Backlog Elimination Drive. Thanks to all who participated in the drive! Over 100 editors—including Jimbo Wales—signed up this time (nearly triple the participants of the May drive). This benefited the Guild as well as the articles in need of copy editing. You can see from the comparison graphs that we increased the number of completed copyedits substantially. Unfortunately, we were not able to meet our goal of completely wiping out 2008 from the queue. We also were not able to reduce the backlog to less than 6,000 articles. We suspect people were busy with real life summertime things, at least in the northern hemisphere! We were able to remove the months of January, February, March, April, and May from the backlog, and we almost wiped out the month of June. We reduced the backlog by 1,289 articles (17%), so all in all it was a very successful drive, and we will be holding another event soon. We'll come up with some new ideas to try to keep things fresh and interesting. Keep up the good work, everybody!


Stats
If you copy edited at least 4,000 words, you qualify for a barnstar. If you edited in the May 2010 GOCE Backlog Elimination Drive, your word totals are cumulative for barnstars (not the leaderboard). Over the course of the next week or two, we will be handing out the barnstars.

November 2010 backlog elimination drive update[edit]

Greetings from the Guild of Copy Editors Backlog Elimination Drive!

GOCE November 2010 backlog elimination drive progress graphs

We have reached the midway point in our backlog elimination drive, so here is an update.

Participation report — The November drive has 53 participants at this point. We had 77 participants in the September drive. In July, 95 people signed up for the drive, and in May we had 36. If you are not participating, it is not too late to join!

Progress report — The drive is quite successful so far, as we have already almost reached our target of a 10% reduction in the number of articles in the backlog. We are doing very well at keeping our Requests page clear, as those articles count double for word count for this drive.

Please keep in mind the possibility of removing other tags when you are finished with an article. If the article no longer needs {{cleanup}}, {{wikify}}, or other similar maintenance tags, please remove them, as this will make the tasks of other WikiProjects easier to complete. Thanks very much for participating in the Drive, and see you at the finish line!

Participation
GOCE January 2011 backlog elimination drive progress graphs

So far, 43 people have signed up for this drive. Of these, 25 have participated. If you signed up for the drive but haven't participated yet, it's not too late! Try to copy edit at least a few articles. Remember, if you have rollover words from the last drive, you will lose them if you do not participate in this drive. If you haven't signed up for the drive yet, you can sign up now.

Progress report

We have eliminated two months from the backlog – January and February 2009. One of our goals is to eliminate as many months as possible from the 2009 backlog. Please help us reduce the size of this part of the backlog if you haven't already. Another goal is to reduce the entire backlog by 10%, or by 515 articles. Currently, we have eliminated 375 articles from the queue, so if each participant copy edits four more articles, we will reach that goal.

Thank you for participating in the January 2011 drive. We anticipate it will be another big success!

The latest GOCE backlog elimination drive is under way! It began on 1 July and so far 18 people have signed up to help us reduce the number of articles in need of copyediting.

This drive will give a 50% bonus for articles edited from the GOCE requests page. Although we have cleared the backlog of 2009 articles there are still 3,935 articles needing copyediting and any help, no matter how small, would be appreciated.

We are appealing to all GOCE members, and any other editors who wish to participate, to come and help us reduce the number of articles needing copyediting, as well as the backlog of requests. If you have not signed up yet, why not take a look at the current signatories and help us by adding your name and copyediting a few articles. Barnstars will be given to anyone who edits more than 4,000 words, with special awards for the top 5 in the categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", and "Number of articles of over 5,000 words".

The Guild of Copy Editors invites you to participate in their September 2011 Backlog elimination drive, a month-long effort to reduce the size of the copy editing backlog. The drive will begin on September 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and will end on September 30 at 23:59 (UTC). We will be tracking the number of 2010 articles in the backlog, as we want to copy edit as many of those as possible. Please consider copy editing an article that was tagged in 2010. Barnstars will be given to anyone who edits more than 4,000 words, with special awards for the top 5 in the categories "Number of articles", "Number of words", and "Number of articles of over 5,000 words". See you at the drive! – Your drive coordinators: Diannaa, Chaosdruid, The Utahraptor, Slon02, and SMasters.
