The following event has concluded. Please do not modify this page. Comments should be made on the talk page.

This Copy Editing Backlog Elimination Drive was a one-month-long effort of the Guild of Copy Editors to reduce the backlog of articles that require copy editing, signified with the {{copyedit}} tag or by a listing on the GOCE Requests page. Please make sure that you know how to copy edit and that you are familiar with the Wikipedia Manual of Style before you begin copy editing—these are specially important for articles listed on the Requests page. The drives are under the purview of the Guild's coordinators. The lead coordinator is Stfg (talk), and he is assisted by Allens (talk) and Torchiest (talk). If you have any questions, leave a message on the drive's talk page. This drive began on July 1, 2012, 00:00 UTC and ended on July 31, 2012, 23:59 UTC. Please read the instructions as some changes were made effective with this drive! Thanks.

GOCE results as of 31 July 2012.JPG

The goal of this backlog elimination drive is to reduce the overall backlog by as many articles as possible, with a focus on those that have been in the queue for the longest (May, June, and July 2011) and those on the GOCE Requests page. Articles from the Requests page count towards your total whether they have a copy edit tag on them or not, so please feel free to select from there when you are in the mood for a better-quality article to edit. Articles tagged {{copyedit}} in May, June, and July 2011, and all requests, will receive a bonus score of 50% over and above the article's word count. Awards will be given out to those individuals who help reduce the size of the backlog.

The backlog elimination drive is open to all, and you do not need to be a member of the Guild of Copy Editors to participate. However, you may want to consider joining, as membership has its benefits. For example, you can place a special "page in use" tag when you are copy editing, and another tag on the talk page when you finish. See the Templates page. Please visit the Guild or the main drive page for more information.

Full instructions, tips, and awards[edit]

Full instructions for participants, tips, help for new copy editors, useful tags, and details of the many barnstars available for the drive can be found on the main drive page. Please read this page carefully before you begin.

Signing up[edit]

Feel free to put your name down at any time. Read the directions, and then add your name:

  1. in the Totals directly below.
  2. to the Participants list at the bottom of the page.

Directions[edit]

In the section for the first letter of your username, insert

{{subst:GOCEtotals|~~~|nnn}}

in alphabetic order of usernames. nnn is your number of rollover words, which are the words left over from your May 2012 total after we worked out what barnstar to give you. If you took part in the GOCE May 2012 backlog elimination drive, you can obtain your current rollover word count from the new rollover words field of your entry in the May 2012 Barnstars page. If you did not take part in the May 2012 drive, your rollover count is zero, and you can either omit nnn or set it to 0.

Please do not copy and/or edit other people's entries, as this has been known to cause problems. If you have any difficulty with this procedure, you may just sign up in the Participants section below, and a coordinator will create your entry in the Totals section.

Totals[edit]

When recording articles completed, please remember to remove any {{copyedit}} tag from that article—if you want it checked, you can request it on the drive talk page and someone will be along to do it. Do not list articles on which you have placed {{GOCEreviewed}} instead of copy editing them; they don't count. Please provide the full title, not an abbreviated version, and place any comments after the article title but before the word count. If the article is from the GOCE Requests page, place *R after the word count, or if it was tagged in May, June, and July 2011, place *O after the word count. Please do not add the 50% bonus in these cases—we will apply the bonuses after the drive is over. Here is an example of a well-completed line:

# {{Completed}} [[After Dark (film)]] (section only) (1234) *O

Reviewers: please place reviewing templates at the end of the relevant line, after *R or *O (if any).

Participants[edit]

Reviewing[edit]

Dianna (Talk) will chair this group. The committee will inspect articles at random for quality control purposes. If you are interested in participating, please sign up below.

Procedure[edit]

10% of a participant's copy edits from the backlog should be inspected. All copy edits from the Requests page should be reviewed, time permitting. Please choose articles at random, and do not inspect articles you have copy edited yourself. After checking an article, place a {{checked}} mark after the article on the listing and sign your username. If a rough consensus finds a copy edit is not of an acceptable standard, the tag will be re-added and the editor will be assessed a penalty of 1,200 words plus the length of the article reviewed. The reviewer may also give advice on how the edit could have been better, without penalizing the editor. Please direct any questions to Dianna (Talk).
