- @Dom497: Yes, Christine emailed me and I told her I would not judge the 2015 Cup. I've taken a long break from Wikipedia and I would like to get used to it again. However, if you really need me to be a judge, I think I can do it. I just want to relax a bit this summer. ΤheQ Editor Talk? 00:48, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
GA Review: Tim McKee
Q Editor, thank you for jumping on the GA Review for the Tim McKee article and banging it out. I see that you are participating in the GA Cup contest. I have another five articles pending for GA Review, all American and Australian Olympic swimmers in similar condition to Tim McKee. If you're looking to complete several quick reviews for the Cup, they should be easy work for the reviewer. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 19:15, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
- @Dirtlawyer1: That's fine with me. I'll start reviewing after I come back from vacation. Thanks, ΤheQ Editor Talk? 18:15, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
- Good to know. I've had 5 GA nominations sitting since January/February. They're clean, well-sourced, and there is significant overlap of formatting and references. Reviewed one, you've reviewed all. Knowing you're interested in doing these Olympic swimmer reviews, I may have another couple ready by the time you return from vacation.

2015 GA Cup
Welcome to the GA Cup! In less than 72 hours, the competition will begin! Before you all start reviewing nominations and reassessments we want to make sure you understand the following:
Also, rather than creating a long list on what to remember, make sure you have read the "Scoring", "Submissions", and "FAQ" pages.
Now some of you are probably wondering how on earth the rounds will work.
The rounds will work in a similar fashion as the previous competition, with the exception of the first round. Round 1 will have everyone compete in one big pool. Depending on the final number of participants after sign-ups close, a to-be-determined number of participants will move on (highest scorers will move on) to Round 2. We guarantee that the top 15 will move on (this number may change), so make sure you aim for those top positions! Moving on to Round 2, participants will be split into pools. The pools will be determined by a computer program that places participants by random. More details regarding Round 2 will be sent out at the end of Round 1.
It is important to note that the GA Cup will run on UTC time, so make sure you know what time that is for where you live! On that note, the GA Cup will start on July 1 at 0:00:01 UTC; Round 1 will end on July 29 at 23:59:59 UTC; Round 2 will commence on August 1 at 0:00:01 UTC. All reviews must be started after or on the start time of the round. If you qualify for Round 2 but do not complete a review before the end of Round 1, the review can be carried over to Round 2; however that review will not count for Round 1. Prior to the start of the the second round, participants who qualify to move on will be notified.
Finally, if you know anyone else that might be interesting in participating, let them know! Sign-ups close on July 15 so there is still plenty of time to join in on the action!
If you have any further questions, contact one of the judges or leave a message here.
After sign-ups close, check the Pools page as we will post the exact number of participants that will move on to the next round. Because this number will be determined past the halfway mark of Round 1, we encourage you to aim to be in the top 15 as the top 15 at the end of the round are guaranteed to move on.
Cheers from, , , and .
