Hello everyone, and welcome to the July 2016 GOCE newsletter.
June Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 12 through 18 June; the themes were video games and Asian geography. Of the 18 editors who signed up, 11 removed 47 articles from the backlog. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all editors who took part.
Coordinator elections: The second tranche of Guild coordinators for 2016, who will serve a six-month term until 23:59 UTC on 31 December, have been elected. Jonesey95 remains as your drama-free Lead Coordinator, and Corinne and Tdslk are your new assistant coordinators. For her long service to the Guild, Miniapolis has been enrolled in the GOCE Hall of Fame. Thanks to everyone who voted in the election; our next scheduled one occurs in December 2016. All Wikipedia editors in good standing are eligible; self-nominations are welcome and encouraged.
July Drive: Our month-long July Copy Editing Backlog Elimination Drive is now underway. Our aim is to remove articles tagged for copy-edit in April, May and June 2015, and to complete all requests on the GOCE Requests page from June 2016. The drive ends at 23:59 on 31 July 2016 (UTC).
Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdlsk.
, not a very well known standard, but Sarah definitely does it justice!♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:59, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
She certainly does. This is new to me, thanks.
Just yet another sad loss: "... jazz trumpeter who died in an auto accident at the age of 25."
Have a great weekend! I'm starting another Wikibreak now. — Gareth Griffith-Jones | The Welsh | Buzzard | 09:34, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
I am is taking a long wikibreak and will be back on Wikipedia but my having to take this extended Wikibreak, due to a serious personal situation, means that I have no time for Wikipedia for the unpredictable future ... .
