This Copy Editing Backlog Elimination Drive was a one-month-long effort of the Guild of Copy Editors to reduce the backlog of articles that require copy editing; those carrying the {{copyedit}} tag or listed on the GOCE Requests page. It began on March 1, 2015, 00:00 (UTC) and ended on March 31, 2015, 23:59 (UTC). The goals of this drive were:

  • to reduce the backlog by as many articles as possible, with a focus on the earliest-tagged articles (those tagged in October, November and December 2013);
  • to complete all requests on the GOCE Requests page from January 2015.

Drive participants can earn barnstar awards based on the number of articles—and the word counts of the articles—they copy edit. Articles from the Requests page count towards your total; these are generally higher-quality articles than those tagged with {{copy edit}}. You will receive a bonus score of 50% over the article's word count for articles that were tagged with {{copyedit}} in October 2013, November 2013 and December 2013, and for articles listed on the Requests page. Awards will be given out once the drive has finished.

The drive was open to all Wikipedians; you don't have to be a member of the Guild of Copy Editors to participate. You must, however, be competent in your use of English grammar, spelling and punctuation. We strongly advise you to read Wikipedia's guide to basic copy editing before you begin working. If you're unsure about spelling, grammar or punctuation, consult the Wikipedia Manual of Style. Skilled use of English is especially important for articles listed on the Requests page.

Drives are under the purview of the Guild's coordinators. The drive's lead coordinator is Miniapolis (talk), who is assisted by Jonesey95 (talk) Biblioworm (talk) Philg88 (talk). If you have any questions, leave a message on the drive's talk page.

For brief instructions on how to record your work, see below. For full instructions, visit the main drive page.

Full instructions, tips, and awards[edit]

Full instructions for participants, tips, help for new copy editors, useful tags, and details of the many barnstars available for the drive can be found on the main drive page. Please read this page carefully before you begin. To sign up, please use the form in the Signing up section below.

Reviewing[edit]

GOCE coordinators and other experienced Guild members will carry out random checks to ensure that copy edits are of a satisfactory standard. If you are willing to help with reviewing, please sign up below.

10% of each participant's copy edits from the backlog should be checked, and all copy edits from the Requests page should be reviewed, time permitting. Please choose articles at random and do not inspect your own copy edits. After checking articles, place a {{checked}} template after the article on the listing and sign your username with four tildes (~~~). If a rough consensus finds that a copy edit is not of an acceptable standard, the tag will be re-added and the editor will be deducted a penalty of 1,200 words plus the word count of the reviewed article. The reviewer may give advice on how the edit could have been improved without penalizing the editor. Please raise any questions on the Coordinators' talk page.

Signing up[edit]

This drive has now concluded and is no longer open to sign-up.

Totals[edit]

How to record articles you have copy edited:

  • Remove any extant {{copyedit}} tags from the article.
  • When you sign up, your section is automatically populated with # {{Working}} [[]] () and # {{Completed}} [[]] ():
    • Article titles go in wikilinks [[]]. List the article's full title, not an abbreviated version.
    • Article word counts go in round brackets (): use this script to get the page's word count.
  • Place articles you're working on on the {{Working}} line. When you've finished your copy edit, change {{Working}} to {{Completed}}
  • If the article is from the GOCE Requests page, place *R after the word count. If it was tagged in October, November or December 2013, place *O after the word count.
  • Place any comments between the article title and the word count.
  • Do not list articles on which you have placed {{GOCEreviewed}} instead of copy editing them, or which needed no copy editing.
  • Do not add the 50% bonus for Requests or Oldest articles—a coordinator will apply the bonuses after the drive is over.
  • If you want your work checked, you can request it on the drive talk page.

Properly completed records look like this in the edit window:
