This is the talk page for Miniapolis, who is proud to be a Wikipedia editor. Although I can be reached by email, I prefer keeping discussions on-wiki as much as possible. Due to time constraints, I no longer accept direct copyedit requests; please list articles requiring copyediting for GAN, FAC and the like on the Guild of Copy Editors request page (and consider pitching in with the GOCE, which can always use more help!). Since I take the occasional wikibreak, feel free to undo any administrative action I've taken as you see fit.

A request[edit]

Hi again Miniapolis—I keep thinking of you again as I've worked with plenty of people both on Wikipedia and off, however your eye for mistakes is far better than I've seen elsewhere. I mention this as right now I'm involved in writing a few more articles as a volunteer, however Interactive Brokers hired me again to expand their article. I'm used to COI editing and its best practices which I'm strictly following, and I've completed the prose for the draft, located here. I really want this to be well regarded by Wikipedia and the company alike, and may try to make it the first FA for a financial company. I'd really love your input or critique. Thank you.

Yours, ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 14:17, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
I'm busy with a couple of things right now, but will take a look ASAP. All the best, Miniapolis 14:36, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
Understandable, thank you! ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 15:38, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
I was wondering if you have had a chance to look at this yet? Very glad for your help. Kind regards, ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 21:49, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Sorry for forgetting; I've been busy IRL as well. When I finish my current copyedit, I'll take a look at it. All the best, Miniapolis 22:57, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Jane Austen edits[edit]

That was really a nice set of edits which you did at Jane Austen. It was a long article and it was nice to see your patience with the article. You are now listed by the bot there as one of the top ten editors and perhaps you might visit that page again with the editors there supportive of your nice efforts. Cheers.

Thanks for the kind words. I edit articles section by section to minimize edit conflicts so the more sections, the more edits.Face-smile.svg Good luck with FA and all the best, Miniapolis 16:54, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Congratulations on becoming a hall-of-famer![edit]

I assume that the GOCE Hall of Fame is an actual physical building, so as a new coordinator I will be helping to typeset your bronze plaque. Is there anything you would like us to be sure to include on it? Tdslk (talk) 01:04, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

LOL. Congratulations on becoming a coordinator, and I'll be around to help and answer questions (not much this weekend, though, since our daughter and her family will be visiting). Have fun and all the best, Miniapolis 02:31, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Enjoy your family time! Tdslk (talk) 02:53, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

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.

The Creation of the Violin[edit]

Thank you very much for copy-editing The Creation of the Violin. NearEMPTiness (talk) 04:24, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Not done yet (been AFK). I'll finish ASAP, ping you and tag the talk page; I know that Blue Moonset is waiting for the copyedit at DYK (which is why it should be done before nomination, but ... ). All the best, Miniapolis 20:18, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

@Miniapolis: Thank you once again for your efforts. --NearEMPTiness (talk) 07:15, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

LOL, and glad to help. Good luck and all the best, Miniapolis 15:27, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
