Hi FunkMonk, here's another one of yours at TFA, I'm working on the TFA text now. - Dank (push to talk) 15:06, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Cool, say of you need help cutting. FunkMonk (talk) 15:19, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Sure, let's tag-team this one. I've done the first pass; that's about the right length. I've done some rewording; that's not a criticism of your language at all, which is great for an article where someone is looking for detailed information, but perhaps is not ideal as a column that someone glances at when they're clicking on the Main Page (and there are 10M of those people per day ... many are casual readers, probably). If you object to identifying specimen, we could perhaps say just "specimen" (unlinked). - Dank (push to talk) 15:54, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I think you can do whatever you want when it comes to simplifying, my only objection is to if meaning is changed (which would probably be accidental anyway). FunkMonk (talk) 16:05, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Precious again, your Baryonyx, one of the best preserved animals of its kind from the UK!
Thanks for the ping- no promises I'm afraid. I've a lot on and I'm not really a dino-enthusiast (my fianceé's super keen; shame I'm yet to convince her to sign up). If you're still struggling for lack of reviews by Friday, let me know and I'll try to fit in a review over the weekend. Best of luck with it either way!

Thanks! Birds are dinosaurs after all, so maybe she should be the one convincing you of their greatness, hehe... FunkMonk (talk) 09:41, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
We would like to announce the start of the 4th GA Cup, a competition that seeks to encourage the reviewing of Good article nominations! Thus far, there have been three GA Cups, which were successful in reaching our goals of significantly reducing the traditionally long queue at GAN, so we're doing it again. Currently, there are over 400 nominations listed. We hope that we can again make an impact this time.
The 4th GA Cup will begin on November 1, 2016. Four rounds are currently scheduled (which will bring the competition to a close on February 28, 2017), but this may change based on participant numbers. We may take a break in December for the holidays, depending on the results of a poll of our participants taken shortly after the competition begins. The sign-up and submissions process will remain the same, as will the scoring.
Sign-ups for the upcoming competition are currently open and will close on October 31, 2016. Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors, so sign-up now!
If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the judges.
To subscribe or unsubscribe to future GA Cup newsletters, please add or remove your name to our mailing list. If you are a participant, you will be on the mailing list no matter what as this is the easiest way to communicate between all participants.
