Copy-edit version[edit]

A good idea also is to put on the article Talk page a GOCE version template, like this of Twofingered Typist

WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors
WikiProject icon A version of this article was copy edited by Twofingered Typist, a member of the Guild of Copy Editors, on 28 October 2016. The Guild welcomes all editors with a good grasp of English and Wikipedia's policies and guidelines to help in the drive to improve articles. Visit our project page if you're interested in joining! If you have questions, please direct them to our talk page.

(ping) - Can you put one on Talk:Franklin's electrostatic machine just below Twofingered Typist's one. Thanks.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 13:57, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Great improvements to the article = I appreciate it. I have ordered some ILL books to look into the Joseph Hopkinson's gift of the original Franklin battery to the Royal Society. I'll see what I can come up with. I have resubmitted for Good Article nomination (for a second time) and I can see with these great improvements you have made, that there is a good chance it will pass this time.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 22:02, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
I appreciate all of your appreciation and encouragement, but for some reason, I had the impression is that articles should not be submitted as Good Articles while they are in the midst of significant changes, such as the copy-editing you requested, which I have only half-way completed. I'm just a beginner here, so I may not understand the situation, but I have the sense that you might have "jumped the gun" just a little bit, and that perhaps it would have been better to wait until the copy-editing process is finished is at least mostly completed before re-submitting the article for review as a Good Article. --Burnishe (talk) 02:41, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
You are right, of course. My mistake. I have removed the GAN. Feel free to copy-edit as long as you want. I'll be glad to wait until you are completely done. Thanks again for the great job you have done on this article. Merry Christmas!--Doug Coldwell (talk) 12:10, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Another idea I noticed used by others is this GOCE template, while it is being copy edited --Doug Coldwell (talk) 13:15, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Thank you for the suggestion to use the {{GOCE in use}} template. I've removed the template now, because (interestingly) the template itself was requesting to be removed. --Burnishe (talk) 06:59, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
