This Copy Editing Project Blitz was a one-week effort of the Guild of Copy Editors to reduce the number of articles from March 2013. The blitzes are under the purview of the Guild's coordinators. The lead coordinator for this blitz was Torchiest (talk), and he was assisted by BDD (talk) and Miniapolis (talk). If you have any questions, leave a message on the blitz's talk page.

The goals of this blitz were to copy edit as many articles as possible from March 2013. Awards will be given out to everyone who copy edits at least one of the target articles. The blitz ran from April 14–20.

Blitzes are 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 the Guild, 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 blitz page for more information.

Full instructions, tips, and awards[edit]

Reviewing[edit]

GOCE coordinators and other experienced members of the Guild will carry out random checks to ensure that copy edits are of a satisfactory standard. If you are willing to help with this, please sign up below.

When checking, please choose articles at random, and do not inspect articles you have copy edited yourself. When you find an acceptable copy edit, place a {{checked}} mark after the article on the listing and sign your username (just ~~~). If in doubt, please raise the issue on the Coordinators' talk page. If a rough consensus finds a copy edit is not of an acceptable standard, the tag will be re-added and the word count deducted. The reviewer may also give advice on how the edit could have been better, without penalizing the editor. Please raise any questions on the Coordinators' talk page.

Signing up[edit]

To sign up for the drive, click the button below. This will create a subsection in the Totals section for you to record your copy edits. There are no rollover words for this blitz; please just leave that number blank or zero. The previous blitz's rollover totals are located here, if you need to add them.


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 blitz 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, or which needed no copy editing; they don't count. Please provide the full title, not an abbreviated version. Please avoid adding text comments unless they are essential, and place any comments after the article title but before the word count.
