This is a new initiative of the Guild of Copy Editors. To make suggestions for improvement or to give any other feedback, please put a message on our main talk page, or if you prefer, on Stfg's talk page.

The following event has concluded. Please do not modify this page. Comments should be made on the talk page.

This Copy Editing Project Blitz is a one-week effort of the Guild of Copy Editors to reduce the number of articles of a chosen WikiProject that require copy editing, signified by the {{copyedit}} tag. Please make sure that you know how to copy edit and that you are familiar with the Simplified Manual of Style before you begin copy editing. The blitzes are under the purview of the Guild's coordinators. The lead coordinator for this blitz is Stfg (talk), and he is assisted by Torchiest (talk). If you have any questions, leave a message on the blitz's talk page. This blitz began on Sunday, October 21, 2012, 00:00 UTC and will end on Saturday, October 27, 2012, 23:59 UTC.

The goals of this blitz are to copy edit as many articles as possible, beginning with WikiProject Olympics, and especially those that have been tagged for the longest time. Awards will be given out to everyone who copy edits at least one of the target articles.

The blitz is open to all, and you do not need to be a member either of the Guild of Copy Editors or of WikiProject Olympics to participate. However, you may want to consider joining the Guild, as membership has its benefits. For example, you can place a special "page in use" tag when you are copy editing, and another tag on the talk page when you finish. See the Templates page. Please visit the Guild or the main blitz page for more information.

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 blitz page. Please read this page carefully before you begin. To sign up, please use the form in the Signing up section below. To participate, follow the instructions at the top of the article lists.

Article lists[edit]

When you have chosen an article for copy editing and are ready to edit it, please add {{y}} (displays as Green tickY) and sign your name (~~~) next to the article's listing below. Please only check off an item when you are immediately going to begin editing it, so that we can avoid articles being stuck in limbo. When you complete the article, delete it from the list. When the open lists of WikiProject articles are nearing completion, the next WikiProject's list will be added.

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

When checking, please choose articles at random, and do not inspect articles you have copy edited yourself. When you find an acceptable copy edit, place a {{checked}} mark after the article on the listing and sign your username (just ~~~). If in doubt, please raise the issue on the Coordinators' talk page. If a rough consensus finds a copy edit is not of an acceptable standard, the tag will be re-added and the word count deducted. The reviewer may also give advice on how the edit could have been better, without penalizing the editor. Please raise any questions on the Coordinators' talk page.

This event has concluded. Please do not modify this page. Comments should be made on the talk page.


When recording articles completed, please remember to remove any {{copyedit}} tag from that article—if you want it checked, you can request it on the blitz talk page and someone will be along to do it. Do not list articles on which you have placed {{GOCEreviewed}} instead of copy editing them, or which needed no copy editing; they don't count. Please provide the full title, not an abbreviated version. Please avoid adding text comments unless they are essential, and place any comments after the article title but before the word count.
