Etymology Task Force[edit]

Hi Anthony, and thanks for joining up to the Etymology Task Force! I don't edit etymology articles that much, but I set the task force up so I'm pretty much the go-to guy for task-force-related things. If you would like any pointers about getting involved or about general Wikipedia matters, don't hesitate to ask. Also, you should feel free to ask at the WikiProject Linguistics talk page for any content-related things. Someone there is bound to be able to help you. Best regards — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 10:24, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Stradivarius! Thanks for the welcome! I love etymology, but I am no expert - but I have plenty of time to do the research, and compile useful information into a Wikipedia friendly style. Thanks again! AnthonyW90 (talk) 10:43, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Tips for copy-editing[edit]

Hi AnthonyW90, I'm Baffle gab1978 (talk) and I'm an experienced copy-editor at the GOCE. You asked here for some copy-editing tips. There's a very useful guide here, and the Manual of Style is very handy for checking on punctuation, English variety issues and all sorts of other things. The GOCE runs a mentoring progamme that you might find useful too. I hope you find the above useful and that you enjoy copy-editing; feel free to contact me if you need to – good copy-editors are in short supply!

Disambiguation link notification for April 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge 2012, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages John Newman, Starships and Sia (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Status of Ivy Queen copy-edit[edit]

Hi Anthony, what's the status of your GOCE copy-edit of the article? I see you've done some work on it but nothing since 12th April and you haven't declared it done on the Request page. Can you please let us know whether you plan to finish it? I'll return it to the queue if I don't hear from you in the next week. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 05:39, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that! Been a bit pre-occupied recently (got made redundant) but all is well, and I do plan on finishing it! I have been working on a copy at User:AnthonyW90/IvyQueenCopyEdit because I was aware that fairly regularly small improvements were being made to the original! Please feel free to return it to the queue, and if someone fixes it up before me then that's no problem - it's all experience! Thank you! AnthonyW90 (talk) 11:56, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the update; I'm sorry to hear about your job, obviously the real world must take priority over online activities, so it's understandable and I hope I wasn't being pushy. I'll put a note on the requester's page and let him know you're editing in your userspace and that you intend to complete the c/e. I think it's probably best for him to withdraw the request, since there's little point having two copies being edited separately. So we'll see where DivaKnockouts wants to handle things before I return it to the queue. Thanks again for the update; best wishes for job-hunting. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 16:46, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
(talk page visitor) Hi Anthony, I saw this because of the discussion on the GOCE Requests page. It's very risky to take a copy to edit in your own space like this, because if some else edits the article in mainspace, either you're going to have to incorporate their edits in your copy, or you're going to end up overwriting their edits when you copy your work back into mainspace, which would be very discourteous. The right way to handle this is to use the {{GOCEinuse}} template on the article in mainspace, and edit there. I like to change this to {{under construction}} overnight while I'm not working, to give other editors a chance. Regards, --Stfg (talk) 18:16, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi Stfg - sorry about that! I have the article on my watchlist and have incorporated all new edits to the original article into my own as I've been going along! In future I will use the 'in use' and 'under construction' templates as you have suggested - for now, I would like to continue as I am - as I said before I do not mind if the article is worked on without me - I kind of picked this article because it was large and on a topic I knew nothing about, and would therefore serve as good practice/learning for copy editing - ergo I did not initially want to make live edits, and was planning on just working at it and then inviting GOCE in to comment on it - unfortunately the whole process has been interrupted by real life and has taken longer than I had initially hoped! Thank you, both Stfg and Baffle gab for your understanding!AnthonyW90 (talk) 21:12, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi again. (Don't forget to sign your posts with ~~~~ Face-smile.svg.) Yeah, it's OK to continue like that so long as you know the risk. I took a quick look at what you've done with it so far in your space, and you clearly know what you're doing, so I wouldn't hesitate to edit articles in situ in future. Sorry about the redundancy. Well, maybe sorry, but I had a redundancy too, years ago, and in the end it proved to be a blessing. I hope it does for you too. Cheers, --Stfg (talk) 20:58, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Oh, oops, I meant to say that nobody else will take on the copy edit while it's marked as {{working}} on the requests page, so it needs either doing or releasing. Best, --Stfg (talk) 21:01, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Ooops sorry! Still getting used to the whole ~~~~ thing! Even if it IS written right there at the bottom of the Text Editor box!! Haha! Yeah - the whole redundancy thing isn't worrying me too much, I'm young, I'll move on (and hopefully up!) unfortunately it just came a little unexpectedly and just as I was really getting into the flow of things at work! Meh - these things are sent to try us! I will remove the {{working}} tag now, since I don't mind if it is picked up by someone else! But I will post a note myself to mention that I am still 'having a go' at it! Thank you for the encouragement! Face-smile.svg AnthonyW90 (talk) 21:12, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hi again Anthony, I hope you are well. I'm sorry to be pushy (again!) but what's the situation with this copy-edit? There's been no sandbox edits since 25th April. I hope your job-hunting is going well. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 05:18, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry - so much going on in real life, I think it would be best to pass this one on! Sorry again! Feel free to take on any of the edits I have made so far (there is a 'hidden' note in the sandbox to indicate how far along I've got!) AnthonyW90 (talk) 08:09, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
No worries, thanks for the update, I'll probably take this one on, and I'll probably use your sandbox version and see where that takes us. Thank you for your work on it, I hope you don't feel discouraged from copy-editing and hope to see you at the GOCE soon. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 10:25, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
I'm now Done; feel free to delete the version in your sandbox. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 02:10, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Awesome! Thank you...ummm, how do I go about deleting the page I created? Cheers! AnthonyW90 (talk) 08:10, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
You can mark it for speedy deletion per Wikipedia:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion#User_pages by adding {{db-u1}} at the top; the page will appear at CSD and an admin will delete it for you. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 03:32, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Changes to SuggestBot's suggestions[edit]

We have changed the number of suggested articles and which categories they are selected from. The number of stubs has been greatly reduced, the number of articles needing sources doubled, and two new categories added (orphans and unencyclopaedic articles). We have also modified the layout of the suggestions and added sortable columns with various types of information about each article. The first two columns are:

Views/Day 
Daily average number of views an article's had over the past 14 days.
Quality 
Predicted article quality on a 1- to 3-star scale. Placing your cursor over the stars should give you a pop-up describing the article's quality (Low/Medium/High), current assessment class, and predicted assessment class.

The method we use to predict article quality also allows us to assess whether an article might need specific types of work in order to improve its quality. The work needed might not correspond to cleanup tags added to the article, since our method is not based on those. We have added five columns reflecting this work assessment, where a red X indicates improvement is needed. Placing your cursor over an X should give you a pop-up with a short description of the work needed. The five columns seek to answer the following five questions:

Content 
Is more content needed?
Headings 
Does this article have an appropriate section structure?
Images 
Is the number of illustrative images about right?
Links 
Does this article link to enough other Wikipedia articles?
Sources 
For its length, is there an appropriate number of citations to sources in this article?

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians.

Changes to SuggestBot's suggestions[edit]

We have changed the number of suggested articles and which categories they are selected from. The number of stubs has been greatly reduced, the number of articles needing sources doubled, and two new categories added (orphans and unencyclopaedic articles). We have also modified the layout of the suggestions and added sortable columns with various types of information about each article. The first two columns are:

Views/Day 
Daily average number of views an article's had over the past 14 days.
Quality 
Predicted article quality on a 1- to 3-star scale. Placing your cursor over the stars should give you a pop-up describing the article's quality (Low/Medium/High), current assessment class, and predicted assessment class.

The method we use to predict article quality also allows us to assess whether an article might need specific types of work in order to improve its quality. The work needed might not correspond to cleanup tags added to the article, since our method is not based on those. We have added five columns reflecting this work assessment, where a red X indicates improvement is needed. Placing your cursor over an X should give you a pop-up with a short description of the work needed. The five columns seek to answer the following five questions:

Content 
Is more content needed?
Headings 
Does this article have an appropriate section structure?
Images 
Is the number of illustrative images about right?
Links 
Does this article link to enough other Wikipedia articles?
Sources 
For its length, is there an appropriate number of citations to sources in this article?

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly, your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. Regards from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker. -- SuggestBot (talk) 00:08, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

We Can Do It!.jpg
  • Progress report: Thus far we have reduced the number of May/June 2012 articles to just 124 articles, so we're on the right track. Unfortunately, for the first time in GOCE history, the number of articles in the backlog has actually gone up during this drive. While all participants are currently doing a fine job, we just don't have as many of them as we have had in the past. We have over 500 editors on our mailing list, but only 18 editors who have done a copy edit for the drive. If you're receiving this newsletter, it's because you have an interest in copy editing. Join the drive! Even if you only copy edit one article, it helps. Imagine how much progress we could make if everyone chipped in just one article.

December Notes from the Guild of Copy Editors
Writing Magnifying.PNG

The December blitz ran from December 8–14. The theme for this blitz was articles tied in some way to religion. Seven editors knocked out 20 articles over the course of the week. Our next blitz will be in February, with a theme to be determined. Feel free to make theme suggestions at the Guild talk page!

The January 2014 Backlog elimination drive is a month-long effort to reduce the size of the copy edit backlog. The drive begins on January 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and ends on January 31 at 23:59 (UTC). Our goals are to copy edit all articles tagged in October and November 2012 and complete all requests placed before the end of 2013. Barnstars will be awarded to anyone who copy edits at least one article, and special awards will be given to the top five in the following categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", "Number of articles of over 5,000 words", "Number of articles tagged in October and November 2012", and "Longest article". We hope to see you there!

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
