GOCE templates

Guild of Copy Editors templates:

  • To leave a note for editors on the requester's talk page before beginning a copy-edit (optional):
{{GOCEstartce}}
  • To post a notice at the top of an article saying the article is undergoing a major copy-edit and requesting that no one edit the article while the notice is posted:
{{GOCEinuse}}
  • To post a notice near the top of an article's talk page indicating that a copy-edit has been completed (note that either of these is usually placed after all the various WikiProject templates, if there are any):
{{GOCE|user={{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|date={{subst:date}}}} This will add the copy-editor's user name and date automatically.
{{GOCE|user=Corinne|date=15 April 2017}}To add correct date manually, for example, if you are placing the template a day or two after you completed the copy-edit and you want the template to show the date you actually finished the copy-edit.
  • To leave a note on requester's talk page saying copy-edit has been completed:
{{GOCEtb|article = Name of article here|sign = ~~~~}}
  • To add, at the top of an article's talk page, the WikiProject banner shell (to group together all WikiProjects connected to the article) and the GOCE template saying a copy-edit has been completed, with the date completed and by whom it was completed:
{{WikiProject banner shell |
{{WikiProject template1}}
{{WikiProject template2}}
{{GOCE template}} i.e., the third or fourth template above that starts "GOCE user"
}}
  • To add WikiProject banner shell (and GOCE template) to the talk page of an article on a living person:
{{WikiProject banner shell |blp=yes |
{{WikiProject Biography|living=yes |listas=Case, Nic}}
{{GOCE|user=Corinne|date=19 February 2016}}
}}
Note: The "listas=Last name, First name" of the subject of the article is only needed once among the banners at the top of the talk page.
Templates
  • To place a notice at the top of an article saying that an active copy-edit is underway:
  • {{GOCEinuse}}
  • {{In use}} – a generic in-use session
  • {{In use|time=~~~~~}} – generic in-use but showing in time/date, and last edit time/date
  • {{In use|30 minutes to fix the information in the History section|time=~~~~~}} – customize the message regarding your in-use intentions and duration. When you save an edit the timekeeper resets to the current time.
  • {{in use|section}} – to declare a section in-use session

To format a quote so that it appears in green text, useful for quoting something in a discussion: {{tq|Type quote here.}}
"This is an example quote, optional quotation marks inside curly brackets."
"This is an example quote, optional quotation marks outside."
This is an example quote with no quotation marks. Usually used like this.
The quote will appear in green. Optional quotation marks go inside the curly brackets if they are part of the quote, outside if they are not. Quotation marks are usually not used with this template. The green text makes it clear that it is a quote.

Not a template, but another way to highlight text, useful for highlighting text in a discussion. Select color from "Web colors" link below.: <span style="color: purple">Text goes here.</span>
Here is an example with purple text: Text goes here..

To format a block quote that requires an attribution (that is, the person who said it). This particular example also includes a reference: {{quote|Quote goes here|Attribution goes here}}
{{quote|This doesn't have to be liberal versus pro-business debate.|Andrew Morgan, director<ref>http://www.this-is-a-dummy-ref.org</ref>}}
Note: To omit the attribution, remove the second pipe like this: {{quote|Quoted text[1]}}. If the 2nd pipe is removed then the reference will hang on the quoted portion instead of on the attributed portion. Multiple references may be used, and they may be of any WP approved style. Of course, a reference is not always necessary in a quote. In that case, just use: {{quote|Quoted text}} or {{quote|Quoted text|Attribution text}}

To format a block quote and keep the line break structure, poem or otherwise:

{{quote|quote=Put quoted text here without double quote marks here.|source=Put source of quote here}}

Be sure to leave the equals signs in place.

Here is an example:

{{quote|quote=<poem>Their names discover what their natures are,
More hard than stones, and yet not stones indeed.</poem>|source=I.i.181-2}}

How to create a diff from two adjacent edits

  1. Go to Revision History, and find the edit.
  2. Left-click on "Prev".
  3. Look up at top of page at the URL. Toward the end there should be two numbers, something like this: revision&diff=695592676&oldid=695592296
  4. Use this template,
    Type two curly brackets;
    type "diff", followed by a pipe;
    type the exact title of the page (no underline is needed).
    Next, from the URL, put the larger/higher number (representing the newer version) to the left (i.e. first) and the smaller/lower number (representing the older version) to the right (i.e. second). You can just highlight the sequence of numbers and "&oldid=" that appear near the end of the URL, click "Copy", then paste after the pipe that follows the page title, and then change "&oldid=" to a pipe.) A label (such as "this", "this edit", or "here") following a pipe is optional.
    Finally, type two closing curly brackets. Here is an example:

{{diff|User talk:Corinne|695573832|695552708|comparing a newer page to an older page by version numbers}}
Or you could just put one number after "prev" (from a URL in which you see prev&oldid=695552708):
{{diff|User talk:Corinne|prev|695552708|Optional label here}}
Or you can use the template to compare any two nonadjacent page versions by taking one page version number from one nonadjacent page and one page version from another nonadjacent page.

To hat, or collapse, a section:
{{collapse top|top title goes here|bg=}}
The material you want to hat (hide from view) goes here. (Can be a template.)
{{collapse bottom}}

En-dash and em-dash templates
Click on each template link below for template documentation:

  • Non breaking space: {{nbsp}}
  • No-space breaking em-dash (but is sticky on the left): {{nsmdns}} (no-space m-dash no-space as a mnemonic)
  • No-space ndash: {{ndash}} or {{nsndns}}
  • Spaced non-breaking en-dash: {{snds}} (spaced n-dash space as a mnemonic)
  • Spaced breaking en-dash: {{snd}}
  • Line break: {{brk}} (replaces HTML tag <br> or identically functioning but more correct <br />)

Note: You cannot use a template, which is written with curly brackets, inside a reference that is in the "cite ref" template format (with curly brackets) or inside any other template such as the quote template, which also uses curly brackets. In that case, use &nbsp; for a no-break space and &ndash; or &mdash;.

En-dash and em-dash keyboard shortcuts (at least on a Mac)

  • En-dash: Alt+-
  • Em-dash: Alt+Shift+-

Optional soft hyphen {{shy}} Use this sparingly. Two places it might be appropriate to use are where there is a long word in a narrow column of text, or a long word in a caption. The main reason to use it is to avoid a very ragged (markedly in-and-out) right margin. The hyphen won't necessarily appear. It would only appear if the long word ended up at the end of a line. See the template documentation (type "Template:Shy" into the search bar) for how to use it. There are a few options there. See also MOS:SHY.

Converting units (height, weight, length, distance, speed, etc.) from one system to another:

  • Information about the conversion templates: {{convert}}
  • List of units: Template:Convert/list of units
  • Example conversion templates for high numbers:
    {{convert|13100000|km2}} → 13,100,000 square kilometres (5,100,000 sq mi)
    or
    {{convert|13.1e6|km2}} → 13.1×106 square kilometres (5.1×106 sq mi)

To create a link to a user without pinging him/her use the noping template {{noping}}: {{noping|User name here}}

Eleanor Elkins Widener[edit]

EEng I was looking once again at your user page and enjoying, once again, everything that is there, and I ended up clicking on a link to Eleanor Elkins Widener. I know you have an interest in things related to Harvard University, so I thought I'd ask you about a few things:

1) This is the very first article I've read on Wikipedia in which a template is used to allow a word to break with a hyphen at the end of a line. I am really puzzled by this. Readers read articles with different screen resolutions, and in most articles, the layout – that is, how many words end up on a line, and how wide the paragraphs are, etc. – changes when one changes the screen resolution, so I would think there is no reason to use a template to specify that a hyphen be added and a word be broken at the end of a line. I've also gotten so used to not seeing words broken at the ends of lines that now I don't like the look of them. What do you think about this?

2) I see a "clarification needed" tag in Eleanor Elkins Widener#First marriage and a "When?" question tag in Eleanor Elkins Widener#Titanic survival and Widener Library. I thought if you had time, perhaps you could resolve these two issues, but maybe you've already seen these.  – Corinne (talk) 02:15, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Sometimes I just add a {{shy}} to a long word because the spirit moves me, but in general I apply them to long words (12+ letters or so) where there's an unusually small amount of horizontal space available – either in an image caption, or in article text where there's an image both to the left and to the right. Computers have inured us to low-quality typesetting, and avoiding at least the worst ragged right margins is something we can do to fight back.
As to the {when} and the {clarify} tags, the sources are vague on those points and I'm just not up to the kind of research that would be needed to resolve them. But some enthused undergraduate may dig up the answer someday. EEng 06:10, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, EEng. I guess it's good to know about the {{shy}} template. I hadn't known about it before. I agree that the instances you mentioned would be appropriate places to use it. I'm going to add it to my collection of templates.  – Corinne (talk) 15:50, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) – A blast to the past! My Dad taught me about the long dictionary word over 50 years ago, and shortly thereafter I learned the Mary Poppins one. I never thought of the Pac-Man sound as being a word. {{shy}} is an interesting template. I wonder how widely used it is? Having fun! Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 02:05, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

1966 New York City smog[edit]

EEng I was just skimming today's featured article, and I was looking at the images and reading the captions. There is one image where the caption doesn't seem to be describing what's in the photo – it's the one of Nelson Rockefeller and Lyndon Johnson. They don't seem to be seated at a table. They seem to be standing. If they are seated at a table, they don't seem to be seated opposite to each other. Do you feel like making a comment about this at the article?  – Corinne (talk) 00:09, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, I missed it in the avalanche of recent edits. See [1]. EEng 20:18, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Copyedit[edit]

Hi Corinne, early this year you copyedited a BLP on Pakistani politician Ishaq Dar after which the article was promoted to GA rank. Recently, I have further expanded political career section and I think ce becomes essential to keep its GA icon intact. I wonder if you would be able to do a quick copyedit? --Saqib (talk) 13:44, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Saqib I've copy-edited that section. There are a few things I'd like to ask you about, but they will have to wait until later – either later today or tomorrow. Best regards,  – Corinne (talk) 17:38, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
Sure, please ask. --Saqib (talk) 05:29, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
Hi Corinne, should I expect you to copyedit the BLP further? Also I was looking to see your questions. --Saqib (talk) 06:46, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the reminder, Saqib. I am sorry I didn't get back to the article promptly. I've been a bit busy, and when I get back onto WP I get distracted by my watch list. I'll try to get to it today. I was pretty much finished the copy-edit, but I might make a few more depending upon your answers to my questions. Thanks again.  – Corinne (talk) 15:48, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
Saqib I started reading the political career section and had to make some corrections and changes in wording. I didn't get to the end of the section. I don't remember the questions I was going to ask you. I can't get back to the article until perhaps tomorrow, but I'll take another look at it.  – Corinne (talk) 01:30, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
Sure. BTW, I have got a minor things to ask concerning your recent ce. You changed ...Chairman of the Pakistan Board of Investment (BOI), with the status of a Minister of State where he remained... to ...Chairman of the Pakistan Board of Investment (BOI), and Minister of State, in which post he remained.... Don't you think it may imply that the subject had served for two separate entities "BOI and Minister of State"? Dar was Minister of State, not for being a member of the cabinet but due to his charge at BOI. --Saqib (talk) 06:29, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

Burebista[edit]

Iridescent I'm finishing up a copy-edit of Burebista. I want to ask you about the first sentence in the third paragraph of the lead:

  • After Burebista's death, the empire he had created dissolved into smaller kingdoms.

Do you like the word "dissolved" there? I was thinking about substituting "devolved". What's the best word to use there?  – Corinne (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

Fragmented or splintered. EEng 01:06, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) – Hi, Corinne. Since Burebista is an ancient person, is there a need for he had created to be pluperfect? What about he created? Having fun! Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 01:57, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
Checkingfax The past perfect tense is used to indicate that an action took place before another action or a time in the past. He created the empire before he died, or before the time of his death. It is really correct.  – Corinne (talk) 17:33, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
I'd be even more basic than EEng, and go with "split" or "broke up". My general rule for Wikipedia writing comes from something Giano wrote back in the early days of Wikipedia—always write as if your reader is a bright 14-year-old with no prior knowledge of the topic.* As well as the children, remember that because the quality and scope of en-wiki are so much higher than that of any other language we have a lot of readers who have only limited English skills, so in my opinion we should always go with the simplest language to reduce the risk of misunderstanding or mistranslation. ‑ Iridescent 17:43, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
*Giano's essay still survives; in my opinion it remains the single most important guide to the deceptively complicated field of writing prose in Wikipedia's unusual house style without making it obvious you're complying with a bunch of arbitrary rules.
Thank you, Iridescent. I couldn't agree more. Thank you also for the link to Giano's essay.  – Corinne (talk) 23:54, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Hatnote[edit]

EEng I was looking at the exchange on your talk page at User talk:EEng#When reverting..., and, though I haven't reached the end of it, I did look at the edit you made in an effort to make the purpose of the hatnote clearer. I'm not even clear about the context of the hatnote, so forgive me if I'm off base here, but may I suggest a change in wording from:

Sloan–Parker House[edit]

Good evening Corinne! I just finished expanding the article for the Sloan–Parker House on the NRHP and I was wondering if you could give it a quick look over. I finished this expansion today, and need to look at it with fresh eyes in the morning before nominating it to DYK and GAR. Thank you in advance for all your phenomenal work! -- West Virginian (talk) 03:54, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

West Virginian I didn't even notice until today that you had posted a request for a copy-edit for this article at Wikipedia:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors/Requests, so, since I had already completed the copy-edit, I accepted the request with the "Working" template, added the "Done" template, and archived it. I hope you weren't hoping for another copy-edit by a different editor. If so, we'll have to re-add your request. Was there more than simply copy-editing that you were hoping I'd do? Let me know if you have any further questions or concerns about the article.  – Corinne (talk) 02:27, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

I will be submitting this list for a copyedit once one of my current nominations there has been copyedited. Thank you so much as always! I hope I am not asking too much of you, but I always enjoy and appreciate your copyedits and insights! -- West Virginian (talk) 17:30, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

West Bengal[edit]

Could you just take a look into this section of the article which you recently copy-edited, I had to add more info according to the FARC and ended up muddling the English — comment added by Force Radical (talkcontribs) 07:39, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Force Radical I did the best I could. I don't know if you were the one who added the HTML &nbsp, but it was over-used and used in the wrong types of places, so I removed them all. The no-break space is to be used sparingly and only to keep single- (or sometimes double-) digit numbers, or single letters, from breaking away from the following word at the end of a line. I prefer the template {{nbsp}}, but that also should be used sparingly. You can leave the addition of these up to copy-editors.
Regarding the literature section I just copy-edited, in the list that appears early in the section, the last item, "and stories related to Gopal Bhar", doesn't seem to parallel the other phrases in the list. It doesn't mention the author; "related to" is a little vague, and those readers not familiar with West Bengal culture will be mystified by "Gopal Bhar".  – Corinne (talk) 16:57, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Also, remember that punctuation goes before references, not after, and, when you use a comma, there should be no space between the word and the comma that follows it.  – Corinne (talk) 17:02, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) – I feel that the article has too many images. Galleries are deprecated as solitary sections, but maybe a few galleries could be created and folded into existing sections, in lieu of having so many separate images all over the place. Good luck with a FAR! It is worthy. (courtesy ping to: Force Radical) – Having fun! Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 22:08, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
Checkingfax – Will do, as soon as the citation issue is done with.- — comment added by Force Radical (talkcontribs) 06:49, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
Corinne,everything's okay, I have no glue as to who put in the nsbp stuff but it was not I. If you could at your leisure run through these two atricles (needing probably minor copyedits and some nbsp templates). — comment added by Force Radical (talkcontribs) 06:49, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

A request[edit]

Hi Corinne, some time no speak. Hope you're doing well. I was wondering, do you have any time in your agenda to copy-edit this article? I would like to nominate it for GA in the near future. In terms of content and all other GA criteria, its as ready as an article can be. Only thing it lacks, is a proper review of its prose by an outsider. Someone who can smoothen the text up. I believe (quite) a few parts of the body are still too "tightly" written, if you get what I mean. Probably some sections could also be merged, but I would really like to leave that suggestion to the person who is willing to do the copy-edits. As that person would probably be able to have a much fresher look at it. Looking forward to your response. Best, - LouisAragon (talk) 23:32, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi, LouisAragon – I'd be glad to copy-edit this article, but I would prefer that you list it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors/Requests. I have just accepted the assignment to copy-edit another article you posted there, Andrew David Urshan. When I finish that, and maybe one or two others, then I'll look for Safavid Georgia. (I usually skip articles about topics in which I have very little interest.)  – Corinne (talk) 02:16, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply Corinne. Aight, will do. - LouisAragon (talk) 02:51, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
LouisAragon I just want to assure you that there is nothing personal about my request to you to post at the Requests page. It's just because I have found that if I continue to accept requests left here, I never get to the project page, and since I am a member of the project, and have until now been a coordinator, I thought I'd better focus a little more on the project page. There are times when I don't see any article that interests me on the requests page, and that's when I wish I had a request here. So, maybe it's a good idea to post at the requests page, and then let me know here that you have done so, and I'll keep an eye out for it. But I really do find your articles, and those of West Virginian, especially interesting, so am always glad to copy-edit them. Best regards,  – Corinne (talk) 21:43, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
Oh, very sweet of you Corinne. Really appreciate it. But there's no need to explain. I understood your intentions right away. :-) Nothing is going to run smoothly, without setting priorities. Anyhow; you can now find the article at the requests section as well.[2] All the best, - LouisAragon (talk) 23:11, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

GOCE Requests[edit]

Corinne, thank you so much for your recent copyedits of my GOCE requests! I did a cross post request to you, and to the GOCE page for the Sloan-Parker House (with the hopes that you would snag it up there!) I just posted two articles on the GOCE page: Marshall S. Cornwell and List of West Virginia state parks, and I would love, as always, if you could copyedit them whenever you have a free moment! Thanks again for always improving the quality of my contributions! -- West Virginian (talk) 15:50, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

West Virginian You're welcome. I already copy-edited List of West Virginia state parks.  – Corinne (talk) 21:38, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
