  • Participation: Out of 41 people signed up for this drive so far, 25 have copy-edited at least one article. If you've signed up but haven't yet copy-edited any articles, every bit helps; if you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late. Join us!
  • Progress report: We're almost on track to meet our targets for the drive. We have reduced our ambitious target group of articles—January, February, and March 2012—by over a third, and 36 of the the 68 requests made in November and December 2012 have already been fulfilled. With changes in the way copy edit tags are added increasing their rate of usage, we continue to stay near the 3000 mark for total tagged articles. So, all you copy editors, please come help us push that number down!
  • The November 2012 Copy Edit of the Month Contest was won by Northamerica1000 for his copy edit of Pizza al taglio. GabeMc and Stfg were the runners-up with their copy edits of Jimi Hendrix and Hyderabad, India, respectively. Congratulations to all three.
  • The December 2012 Copy Edit of the Month Contest is in the discussion and voting stage until midnight January 31 (UTC). You don't have to make a submission to vote!
  • January 2013 Copy Edit of the Month Contest is in the submissions stage until midnight January 31 (UTC), when discussion and voting begin.
