Hangu, Pakistan[edit]

Nice job on this article; the subcontinental ones can be difficult (I worked like a dog copyediting Uttar Pradesh once, only to have all my edits reverted without explanation). A few observations:

  • Contractions like it's instead of it is make an article look unencyclopedic.
  • Try not to link sentence phrases with and unless the second phrase logically follows the first; while a series of short, choppy sentences should be combined if possible, sometimes short is good :-).
  • While mdy (month, day, year—"American-style") dates have a comma after the day, dmy (British-style) dates do not.

Thanks very much for your help; it's needed! All the best, Miniapolis 21:05, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback, really need it to keep an eye on how good I'm doing ;) Steadily working on Jean Monnet right now, I'll keep an eye on your remarks! Mathijsvs (talk) 23:23, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Dishonored[edit]

Hi Mathijsvs, Dishonored has now passed the GA process so is clear for copy editing towards an eventual FA move. Darkwarriorblake (talk) 11:11, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Ok, I'll take a look at it asap :) Mathijsvs (talk) 11:29, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Kanban copy edit[edit]

Hi Mathijsvs. This is just to let you know that Kanban, which you have in your "working" list for the drive, has now been copy edited by another editor. If you want to avoid this another time, putting the {{GOCEinuse}} tag on the article before you start would do the trick. Best regards, --Stfg (talk) 10:06, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

All the better, I had some trouble getting through it anyway ;) Mathijsvs (talk) 13:07, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
