Input, opinions and comments are welcomed at WT:WikiProject Disability#Developing a style guide. The idea is to create a guideline for editors that steers the middle path between obviously offensive language on one side, while also avoiding political correctness for its own sake, which can be just as offensive, on the other side. (Note: This was initially incorrectly posted to the Requests talk page.) Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 09:25, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi - I'm new to editing, and have noticed that the "Copy edit a random article in need of improvement" link on the main page, under "Quick links" appears to be broken? Was hoping to find a nice easy (and random) article to start with... -- Tomsw (talk) 18:31, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
- Hi, Tomsw, and thank you for your interest in copy editing. It looks like this tool is being migrated to WP:Wikimedia Labs, but has not actually been created yet. In the meantime, if you go to Special:RandomInCategory and ask for a random article in the category All articles needing copy edit, you can browse random articles in need of copy edit. Hope this helps. -- Diannaa (talk) 19:40, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
Interested in the English language?
I believe it is fairly safe to presume (or should it be "assume"?) that the members of this project would answer the above question positively, so I'm taking the liberty of announcing here that an initiative to start a WikiProject about English has been launched at Draft:WikiProject English. You're cordially invited to join in the fun and adventure of creating something new. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 10:36, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Members of this project...
Copy editing the name of this project?
This is a rather nonsensical bit on my part, but I find it odd that the title of this page is "WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors". Is the "WikiProject" really necessary? It seems redundant given that "Guild" already handles the meaning that "WikiProject" provides for other projects. Anyway, there is no requirement that WikiProjects have "WikiProject" in their names. It would look much nicer if it was merely "Guild of Copy Editors". RGloucester — ☎ 18:01, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
