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 20 days. 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.

Requests may be declined if the article is:



August 2018[edit]

Black Sea#Historical names and etymology[edit]

Section is well-sourced, but the overal prose is choppy and contains grammatical errors. - LouisAragon (talk) 23:29, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Sanada Yukimura (Sengoku Basara)[edit]

A new article that is also quite important since it doesn't exist in other Wikipedias.Tintor2 (talk) 23:46, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

SMS Schlesien[edit]

This is an article I wrote some time ago, which passed a WP:MILHIST A-class review back in 2013. I have since rewritten in with newer sources, and it probably ought to have a good copyedit before it goes to FAC at some point in the near future. Thanks in advance!

Julio Rodríguez (photographer)[edit]

I'm requesting a copy edit of this short article before nominating for Good Article status. Thanks in advance!. Javier Espinoza (talk) 00:40, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Note—this article is very new (created by the requester at 23:02, 1 September 2018 (UTC)). (My on-hold template redacted; there's no technical reason this can't be copy-edited.) Please discuss further at REQ Talk. Baffle gab1978 01:32, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Jimmy White's 2: Cueball[edit]

Article needs a little cleanup. I'd like to get some more information regarding it's development, and then potentially GA. Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 09:11, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Two Point Hospital[edit]

The game has recently come out, so the reception section needs some work. However, the gameplay and development sections need a good copy-edit, and I am not good at re-writing these types of sections. Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 09:12, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Thiruvilaiyadal[edit]

I intend to take it to FA, so it will need the best copyediting possible. Thanks, Kailash29792 (talk) 16:42, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

@Kailash29792: yellow tickY Partly done: So, I have done a quick copyedit of the article with these three edits – [1], [2], and [3], but, as this was only my second copyedit an experienced member of the guild can have a look at the article and point out errors, if there are any.
Regards, SshibumXZ (talk · contribs). 18:05, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

Not All the Beautiful Things[edit]

In my attempt to promote the article to a GA, a reviewer has requested that I send the "Background" section in for copy-editing, and the "Critical reception" section too if time permits. Thank you! aNode (discuss) 05:35, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Aldus Manutius[edit]

I'd like help from someone with strong skills in copy editing. If you have any questions about content I have written the majority of the article and am willing to answer anything or look up whatever is needed. Just hoping to improve the page with help. Thanks! Gandhi (BYU) (talk) 15:18, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

Rancho Tehama Reserve shootings[edit]

Hello, gang! I am planning to attempt to promote this article to Good Article status. I created this article, and have been the principal editor, but much of the content has been added by 54 other editors (384 revisions). The article gets about 1600 page views per month, which is a decent amount. The article is stable at this point. Thank you in advance for your consideration and for your hard work in copy editing. Having fun! Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 09:17, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

Bitcoin[edit]

Hi, Folks. I plan to attempt to promote Bitcoin to Good Article status. It is an important article that gets about 400,000 page views per month. It is among my top-10 edited articles. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and for your copy editing. Having fun! Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 10:15, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

Chinese calendar[edit]

This article has potential, but it's bogged down by poor organization and machine-translated English. I've done what I can to make it more readable. Please, any contributions you can make to the flow, organization, or standardization of English terms would be welcomed with open, exhausted arms.

Our Lady of Pompeii Church (Manhattan)[edit]

The article is currently a pending-but unanswered-GA nomination (it was already nominated before this request). I would like to eventually propose it for FA. Thank you very much in advance. Ergo Sum 20:25, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

Marjan Nazghlich[edit]

hi please remove and review Grammar False . M1nhm (talk) 05:17, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Interstate 82[edit]

I am looking to take this article to GAN and possibly A-Class Review or FAC in the near future. It's a fairly long read about a highway in the middle of "nowhere", with particular emphasis on a fight between two states on where it should be built. Some sections have yet to be added to the article, as I am awaiting further research, but it is mostly complete. SounderBruce 08:03, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

The Black Parade[edit]

I love this album. As it currently stands, it is a good article. However, it's been ten years that the article's held that status, and besides the fact that it was done in a time where the current GA process was new and people weren't entirely used to it, MCR's fanbase is hugely rabid, so I wouldn't be surprised to see if it was left behind that it'd have slowly been chipped away by uneducated and careless fans. So, I'm not so sure it would pass a review today, even if a reassessment might not delist it. So, might as well get some help for it before someone tries a GAR on it. If you see any problems, feel free to tag them so I can fix them eventually. dannymusiceditor oops 17:04, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Felix Römer[edit]

Ernst Klink[edit]

Would appreciate a review. K.e.coffman (talk) 02:12, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Racism in the UK Conservative Party[edit]

I was thinking of nominating this article for good article status, but need some help from GOCE with regard to prose and other copyediting issues. --Bangalamania (talk) 17:27, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Omaha Rapid Bus Transit[edit]

New article for which I wrote most of the actual text, could use a second pair of eyes. Dmartin969 (talk) 18:00, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

History of the Jews in Alaska[edit]

Hi, please copyedit the article to fix the flow issues (here are the issues to fix that were brought up by User:Szzuk: "I meant the article could do with a copyedit for flow, it is really just about how one sentence leads to the next, the content itself is fine.") JC7V-constructive zone 20:06, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Doctor Who (series 5)[edit]

The article is in need of a copyedit per a request made by an editor reviewing the article for Featured Article status at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Doctor Who (series 5)/archive1. -- AlexTW 11:38, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Trish (Devil May Cry)[edit]

A fellow user already gave it a copyedit but I wonder if it needs more before a nomination to GA. Thanks.Tintor2 (talk) 01:10, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Hop Fastpass[edit]

Recently rewritten almost in it's entirety. Could use a second pari of eyes, especially to ensure I used correct American spellings. Dmartin969 (talk) 04:02, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Tetricus I[edit]

I would like to get a copy edit for this article from a more experienced member of the guild. I could possibly send this in to a peer review then for a FAC nomination. Thanks, Clikity (talk) 17:07, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Johor[edit]

Currently this article is in the waiting process of GA nomination review after been rewritten by me, wish there is any English speakers especially those who can write in British English to make a copy-edit on this article since I am not an English native. Molecule Extraction (talk) 05:40, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Alexandra Pascalidou[edit]

I have worked on this article in the past. I see now that it is in need of c/e. And the Awards section needs a second review for Promo-work or removal. Any help is appreciated.BabbaQ (talk) 23:30, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
