Guild of Copy Editors' requests page

On this page, you can request that the Guild of Copy Editors copy-edit specific articles.

Instructions for requesters

To make a request, remove any existing {{copy edit}} tags from the article, then click this button and follow the instructions:

Please remove any existing {{copy edit}} tags from the article to avoid edit conflicts during the copy edit.

Please note:

  • No request by an unregistered editor will be accepted unless the IP has done significant work on the article. Drive-by IP requests already on the list may be declined by any editor.
  • The average waiting time is two or so months. Please be patient and feel free to improve your requested article while you wait.
  • If you plan to nominate the article for good article, A-class or featured article status, please wait until the copy edit is complete before nominating it.
  • Having your article copy edited by our team does not guarantee that the prose will be considered acceptable during any of the above reviews.
  • You may have up to two open requests at any one time. This is enforced so that every request can have a fair chance of being fulfilled within a reasonable period.

Requests may be declined if the article is:


March 2023[edit]

Rajendra I[edit]

please copy-edit, especially the Ruling career section. SKAG123 (talk) 23:02, 7 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Working, expect to be done by June 11. Cocobb8 (talk) 21:04, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It is currently  Partly done, as I copy edited the ruling career section. On hold until someone else decides to copyedit the rest of the article. Cocobb8 (talk) 13:27, 2 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Cocobb8:, I hope you don't mind but I've struck your hold notice. On hold has a specific meaning here—it usually means the request is being discussed at this page's talk page (REQ talk) and being considered for removal for one or more of several reasons. The article seems suitable for and in need of a copy-edit to me; if there's a problem with a request, please discuss on this page's talk page. This request is open to all copy-editors. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 14:18, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, @Baffle gab1978. Definitely misused the on-hold template. My bad! Cocobb8 (talk) 13:55, 4 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

May 2023[edit]

List of United States tornadoes in 1946[edit]

Article created over the last 12 days by two main editors. I would love a copy edit so only the smaller details have to be fleshed out for a future FLC. Note for copy editors: Article is 169,000 bytes, but is broken up into roughly 40 sections, sorted by month and day and the largest month is 37k bytes. Unless you got a lot of free-time, I would recommend doing monthly chunks rather than a single sit-down editing session. Thank you in advance to anyone who is willing to CE this. Elijahandskip (talk) 02:12, 2 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1971-72 Namibian contract workers strike[edit]

Hello I'm requesting a copyedit for 1971-72 Namibian contract workers strike. I would describe it as medium length, if someone speaks the South African American Dialect that would be preferred since it's directly connected to the history of Namibia (Previously South West Africa under Apartheid). But any copyediting would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! LoomCreek (talk) 21:58, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Charles Brenton Fisk[edit]

This request is for my upcoming GAN. The previous review suggested that I send this to here. While I have copyedited the article to the best of my abilities, I am not a native English speaker so I would be grateful for experienced eyes to be on this article. The article is about an organ builder. Thanks! Carpimaps (talk) 14:27, 16 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hypericum androsaemum[edit]
