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.

Please note:

  • Effective April 17, 2017, 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 about a month. 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.
  • Effective April 17, 2017, 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. Editors with a third request on the list on that date need not remove it.

Requests may be declined if the article is:


May 2017[edit]

Indigenous Environmental Network[edit]

Replace "Articlename" above with the title of the article you are requesting. Replace these instructions with your comments. Leave the tildes in place so that your signature is appended to the request. Gmhardesty (talk) 04:29, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Note: Vansk007 started article but did not complete it.

Angels with Dirty Faces[edit]

I'm looking to get this article up to GA quality before nominating it, so can someone help me with writing the summary at the top before the start of the plot? I'm having trouble summarising it all myself, as the article has been very well detailed by myself. Thank you - Metal121 (talk) 23:14, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Indian Navy[edit]

Need for a thorough copy-edit before submitting for GA or FA nomination. Parmar-ajn (talk) 05:56, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

On hold. This article has had 50+ significant edits over the last ten days. It is not stable enough for copy-editing. Check the article's history periodically to see if it has settled down. – Jonesey95 (talk) 02:52, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
For how long? – BroVic (talk) 12:51, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Until it settles down. If it doesn't settle down in the next week or two, we can have a discussion on the Requests talk page about declining this request until the article is stable. See above: Requests may be declined if the article is "unstable, undergoing rapid development, the venue for an ongoing edit war, or otherwise not yet suitable for copy editing." – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:30, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
 Declined, without prejudice to future submission when the article is stable. – Jonesey95 (talk) 00:34, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

On the Job (2013 film)[edit]

Please give this one a brilliant copy edit—improve the prose's flow, word choice, logical quotation style—before I nominate it for GA and later for FA. If possible, please also tweak the grammar of the alts for images. Thanks. Bluesphere 03:37, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Religion in ancient Rome[edit]

B class article with a lot of content. Could use a copyedit. Harizotoh9 (talk) 04:32, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

 Working Seraphim System (talk) 01:10, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

(Note: Waiting for response to queries on article's talk page.)

Astronomica (Manilius)[edit]

I would like to promote this article to FA, and while I believe it is close to standards, I think it still has a few issues that need to be addressed. Consequently, a copy-edit would really make it shine. (Of note, the article was criticized at a previous FAN for being written in an inappropriate—i.e., overly-academic—register, and if a willing copy-editor could 'take it down a notch', I'd be grateful.)--Gen. Quon (Talk) 18:16, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Quantico (season 1)[edit]

A tight copy-editing would be perfect for my future FL nomination.Krish | Talk 11:09, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

J. K. Rowling's Wizarding World[edit]

I would appreciate a thorough copy-edit of this recently created article that I put up for GAN. Thanks. – Brojam (talk) 17:35, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Comment: Pardon me, but I just saw this at WP:GAN#FILM. I think it's best to let a GOCE volunteer finish with the copy edit before nominating it. Bluesphere 15:09, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
I nominated it since I've gone through the GAN a couple of times and know it takes time before an article gets reviewed. By the time, it gets picked up for review, the copyedit should be done. - Brojam (talk) 18:04, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Murshid Quli Khan[edit]

Please check the grammar before I nominate it for GA. RRD দেবজ্যোতি (talk) 17:10, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

The article has just been rewritten not too long ago. Please help to give it a good copyedit. Perhaps, it has potential to be nominated for a GA in the future. Thank you very much. TerryAlex (talk) 04:44, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Islam[edit]

A thorough copy-editing would be perfect for my future GA/FA nominations. Teodan511 (talk) 06:47, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Teodan511, you have about 40 edits in 7 years, and have never added more than a sentence or two. I strongly suggest you don't waste editors time with a GA/FA nom on this high-profile and highly-viewed article. No-one who does not have perfect English and a wide-ranging subject knowledge should attempt anything more than minor corrections here. I'm saying the same for Christianity just below. Johnbod (talk) 01:26, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Created article, could use a copy-edit to polish and strengthen prose for GA nomination. Thanks – jona 16:33, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Requesting a copy-edit of this article before submitting for good article status.--Rainonthesun (talk) 08:22, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Rainonthesun, you have about 14 edits in 3 years, and have never added more than a sentence or two. I strongly suggest you don't waste editors time with a GA nom on this high-profile and highly-viewed article. No-one who does not have perfect English and a wide-ranging subject knowledge should attempt anything more than minor corrections here. I'm saying the same for Islam just above. Johnbod (talk) 01:28, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Golden Tea Room[edit]

The article is not very long, any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Gryffindor (talk) 17:10, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

More Hall Annex[edit]

Planning on taking this article to FAC in the near future. It's a very interesting story, a small-scale nuclear reactor used for experiments and now the center of a court case between the university and city government over the preservation of historic buildings. Even though it's been demolished, there is still more content to be worked in. SounderBruce 23:13, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Lars Alexandersson[edit]

I created this article some years ago and recently expanded so I think it needs better prose. Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 14:44, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Impeachment March[edit]

Requesting a copy edit for this "soon-to-be-nominated-for-Good-article-status" article. Much appreciated! --Another Believer (Talk) 22:35, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Comment @Another Believer: I said that I was going to copy-edit this article, but because it has been proposed that it be merged into another article, I don't think it is stable enough for that. Please see the discussion on the Requests talk page. N Oneemuss (talk to me · see my edits · email me) 13:19, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

We're determined to get this article promoted to Good status, much like we did for the Not My Presidents Day article. I'm confident the article will be kept, even if we have to rescue it, (again) like we did for the NMPD article. But if you prefer to wait until the discussion has closed before considering a review, I understand. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:20, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
