August 2016[edit]

Jacobo Árbenz[edit]

I would especially like help with pruning information not directly related to the topic of the article. I have worked with this page and closely related pages for a long while, and thus it all seems related to me; but some of the sections are a little long, I feel. Perhaps a fresh pair of eyes can make a difference. Vanamonde (talk) 11:11, 18 August 2016 (UTC)  Working  – Corinne (talk) 17:36, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Black & White (video game)[edit]

Per the GAN. There are apparently too many errors on the article to go through there and it was strongly recommended I submit a request here for copy editing. Adam9007 (talk) 02:28, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Battle of the Bastards[edit]

Hello.. I have worked hard to improve this article(Battle of the Bastards(Which is Season 6, Episode 9 of Game of Thrones)). It has already passed "Good Article". I have also listed it for Peer Review(Where some one told me to "Request a copy-edit at WP:GOCER"). My hope is to turn this to a Featured article. I will truly appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks in advance AffeL (talk) 00:35, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Space Marshals[edit]

At Wikipedia:Good article reassessment/Space Marshals/1 it was suggested that this article could use a copyedit, and so I'm posting here to see if someone can help. Omni Flames (talk) 09:54, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Paper Towns[edit]

Requesting copy edit of article of John Green's 2008 novel Paper Towns. Thanks NeoBatfreak (talk) 07:44, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Note: I removed the copyedit tag from the article, as we don't have both a tag and a request. (See instructions for requesters at the top of this page.) --Stfg (talk) 08:36, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Giganotosaurus[edit]

One of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs, to prepare for GAN and FAC. Thanks! FunkMonk (talk) 14:53, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Escape (Whodini album)[edit]

Requesting a copy-edit before I submit the article for a GA review. Andrzejbanas (talk) 18:58, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

List of Alien characters[edit]

This article was nominated for deletion in April of this year, due to its in-universe style and lack of sources, but was kept for the reason that I would completely revamp it. I've followed through with this incentive and have comprehensively improved the article. I hope to nominate it for Featured List status, but I first feel as though it should be attended to by the Guild of Copy Editors, to make sure the sources are formatted correctly and that it is clean in language. DARTHBOTTO talkcont 21:08, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Comment from non-reviewing editor. It might be useful if you could provide a link to the pre-enhancement version of this article which you refer to above in case any GOCE editor might want to do a quick A-to-B comparison. Cheers. Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 19:13, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
Certainly. Here is what it looked like at the time of the AfD and here is the comparisons. DARTHBOTTO talkcont 23:56, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Shila Amzah[edit]

Requesting c.e. for further improvement. Thank you in advance. Aiman851 (talk) 00:04, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

There are apparently potential copyright issues with this article which is under investigation and listed on Wikipedia Problems page.Twofingered Typist (talk) 18:54, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Sogdia[edit]

If anyone is interested in editing the article for Sogdia, about this particular civilization of ethnic Eastern Iranians who were so instrumental in building the legacy of the ancient and medieval Silk Road from China to Persia and beyond, then please step forth! I hope you enjoy reading the article as much as you'll enjoy copy-editing it. I've tried to fill it with an array of decent images and cited scholarly works on the matter. The citations are a bit of a mess, actually, perhaps they could be conformed to one standard. I've recently nominated it for Good Article status, but it could probably use a good run-through by another pair of eyes who can spot errors or areas that need a bit of tidying up. Cheers and happy editing to any who wish to partake! Pericles of AthensTalk 10:40, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

September 2016[edit]

Needs great c/e before a potential FAC. Kailash29792 (talk) 06:09, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Bicycle kick[edit]

This should be a very fast and simple copyedit. After summarizing the text, I need help checking if the sources in the bibliography are still relevant (in use) at the article. I also welcome help with grammar (British English). This will be taken to FAC after the copyedit. Thanks! --MarshalN20 Talk 17:13, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

I would greatly appreciate a copyedit for this article. It has come a very long way in the past year.

Game of Thrones[edit]

Hello, I have worked hard to improve this article. It has already passed "Good Article" and I will nominate it for a Peer Review later. Being that this is the biggest show in the planet.

Still to be done. --Stfg (talk) 15:11, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
This article is available for copy-editing by any experienced copy editor. You may want to check the version before VarunFEB2003 started editing to ensure that nothing important was removed. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:07, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Bruno Mars[edit]

I'm asking a copy edition in order to keep up with the GA requirements. Be aware of the "Upcoming third studio album and Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show" which is quite messy. I would advise to focus attention some sentences re-wording and punctuation, however take a look at everything as you always do here, thank you so much.

Best regards, MarioSoulTruthFan (talk) 18:29, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Requesting a copy edit for this short GA. Thanks for your consideration. --Another Believer (Talk) 16:40, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Scottish Labour Party leadership election, 2014[edit]

This article was copyedited in March 2015 ahead of an FAC nomination, but I'd like to request another one before putting it forward again. A number of additions to the content were made between the copyedit and FAC nomination, and one thing that was mentioned during the review was the length of some of the paragraphs and sentences, particularly those relating to the campaigns. I have basically written this from scratch, and may have gone over the top with some of the detail, so if anybody can help to consolidate this information it would be a great help. Thanks, This is Paul (talk) 21:01, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

William Crichton (engineer)[edit]

An article about Scottish/Finnish shipbuilder. As English is not my native language, I kindly ask some native speaker to review the article for spelling and grammar. Don't hesitate to ask me if you don't understand something in the article. Gwafton (talk) 19:03, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Vlad II Dracul[edit]

The article is about Dracula's father. Before its GAN, it clearly needs a comprehensive copyedit. Thank you for your time in advance. Borsoka (talk) 13:54, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Requesting a copy edit for this short GA. Thanks for your consideration! --Another Believer (Talk) 22:38, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Zigrasimecia[edit]

Simply requesting a copyedit before I take this to GAN. Not a large article, so this one should be a quick one. Cheers, Burklemore1 (talk) 06:17, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Operation Dragoon[edit]

I rewrote this article of a major WWII campaign, but I think it would require some general copy-editing to improve prose and reading flow. I may take this article to GAN and therefore would greatly appreciate some help by the guild. Thanks in advance! Dead Mary (talk) 08:25, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
