January 2017[edit]

Mount Erciyes[edit]

Just gave this article a huge expansion. I do plan to send it to GAN but it needs a copyedit for flow beforehand. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 09:15, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

D.Gray-man[edit]

Plan to nominate this article to FA but I still don't trust my English. Cheers.Tintor2 (talk) 01:53, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

 Working Miniapolis 02:12, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Dire wolf[edit]

This article has recently achieved GA status. It is now ready for the next step in its development. William Harris • (talk) • 19:46, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

February 2017[edit]

Adventure Time[edit]

I'm prepping this for FA nomination, but I want to make sure that the prose is up to FA-quality. This article was copy-edited in the past, but since then, a lot has changed.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 15:38, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

White Bear (Black Mirror)[edit]

I'm aiming a GAN in the future. I did my own copyedit, but in addition to the fact I'm not a native-speaker, it's always kind of more difficult to see our own mistakes. Thanks in advance. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 03:22, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists[edit]

The article needs to be copy edited as it's going to be nominated for GA. The article has undergone a copy edit before appearing on the main page. But, I've already added a new section. --Mhhossein talk 16:44, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

I recommend that any editor taking this on read the talk page first, and possibly post a note there to notify editors that you will be doing a copy edit. Things have been pretty civil over there, but some background may help. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:33, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Ellie (The Last of Us)[edit]

This article—described as "video game WikiProject's single best character article"—failed two featured article candidacies (1, 2). However, after a copy edit, I believe that perhaps the third time's a charm. Any amount of work or feedback is very welcome. – Rhain 12:00, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1887 play)[edit]

This was recently promoted to good article, and I would like to get a thorough copy edit before submitting a featured article nomination. RL0919 (talk) 17:45, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Melissa Farley[edit]

I have just created a separate bibliography for this article and in the past I cleaned up the references, but there is currently a peacock template on the article. There are various paragraphs of criticism but perhaps the article would benefit from a bit of re-shaping and the creation of a criticism section. The Vintage Feminist (talk) 20:02, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Eve (2003 TV series)[edit]

I would greatly appreciate a copy edit of this article. I would like to put this for FAC sometime in the distant future. Thank you in advance. Aoba47 (talk) 00:05, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Curtis P. Iaukea[edit]

Please proofread and copyedit Curtis P. Iaukea. I am trying to get this to A-Class and Good Article status. KAVEBEAR (talk) 00:50, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Hello, I will be your copy editor today!  Working TerribleTy27 (talk) 10:52, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Don (2006 Hindi film)[edit]

A thorough copyedit will be appreciated.Krish | Talk 06:35, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

The Culture of Nakedness and the Nakedness of Culture[edit]

The article is just moved to the main space and needs to be edited. --Mhhossein talk 18:05, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Miley Cyrus[edit]

This article is not quite up to par when it comes to FA status. Looking for an in depth analysis.--Shane Cyrus (talk) 06:32, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Fightstar[edit]

Looking to get my first FA with this article. I would like it in the very best possible writing. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 14:50, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Vidiians[edit]

I would greatly appreciate a thorough c/e before I put this up for GAN. Thank you in advance! Aoba47 (talk) 19:42, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Skate punk[edit]

Requesting copy edit for the skate punk article. Statik N (talk) 23:22, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

White House to Treasury Building tunnel[edit]

A copyedit would be very appreciated! DarjeelingTea (talk) 23:43, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Proof of the Truthful[edit]

Would appreciate a copyedit on this one. Note that I use mostly present tense to talk about the concept as per MOS:TENSE but still use past tense for how past figures interacted with it in the past. I'd appreciate if someone could also check if the tense choices are appropriate. HaEr48 (talk) 22:57, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Peruchazhi[edit]

Need a copyedit for nominating it for Good Article. The Bat Totem (talk) 09:51, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Tracer (Overwatch)[edit]

Hi! I've made a few finalizing (I believe) content edits to the Tracer article. As per a suggestion from Masem, I'm requesting a copyedit of the article before I request a FAC review of it. Thanks to whoever helps out with this! I sincerely appreciate it :) Soulbust (talk) 01:52, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Sarawak[edit]

Needs somebody to address the close-paraphrasing issue as pointed out the last featured article review in January 2017. The article needs to be checked from the beginning to the end to find if there is any unintended close paraphrasing with uncited sources. Earwig's copyvio detector's check showed that the article is unlikely to be plagiarised, but Graham Beards is still not satisfied, and requires close paraphrasing issue to be addressed before it can reach featured article status. If this article can reach featured article status, the US$ 100 in Bitcoin will be given or divided among the three most significant contributors of close-paraphrasing checkings. Thanks. Cerevisae (talk) 03:23, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Sylvia Mathews Burwell[edit]

Article is about a former US Secretary of Health and Human Services. I am looking to submit this for Good Article review. Knope7 (talk) 03:57, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

North (Something Corporate album)[edit]

Planning to take to GA. Yeepsi (talk) 10:39, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Flash vs. Arrow[edit]

I would appreciate a copy-edit of this article before submitting it for GA nomination, in particular the critical response section. Brojam (talk) 10:51, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Himura Kenshin[edit]

This is an old GA article from 2008. Although I have no plans to nominate to FA, I fear it could lose its status due to its writing. Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 14:34, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Wipeout 2048[edit]

I'm thinking of nominating this for FA soon-ish, so it would benefit from a fresh copyedit/cleanup. Thanks! JAGUAR  21:19, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Spanish ship Fenix (1749)[edit]

I hope to take this article to WP:GAN eventually and a copyedit has been suggested at Wikipedia:Peer review/Spanish ship Fenix (1749)/archive1. Most of the content has been added by me so you can contact me on my talk page with any queries. Thanks for any improvements you can make.--Ykraps (talk) 13:47, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Social contract[edit]

Nice article. Very important political concept. Could use a going over. --Harizotoh9 (talk) 22:02, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Abdullah II of Jordan[edit]

Planning to nominate to GA. Makeandtoss (talk) 23:14, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Silent Hill 2[edit]

GA rated video game article. GA was given in 2010, and it could use a look over since then. --Harizotoh9 (talk) 23:38, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

A general copyedit please. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 14:40, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Alexandra Stan[edit]

I want to bring this article to GA status, but I feel like I need someone to look over the page. There is not much to be done, but the biggest problem is that in some sections the sentences start the same (later that month, eventually...) Thanks in advance, Cartoon network freak (talk) 18:46, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Oppam[edit]

This article is edited with a basic English. Need a thorough copyedit to meet the GA quality. The Bat Totem 07:15, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

James Ludington[edit]

Need a copy edit to bring this article to GA status. --Doug Coldwell (talk) 16:05, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Millennium Earl[edit]

While adding more out-of-universe I wondered whether this article could become a GA so I would like a copy-edit. Also, to the copy-editors, should it be moved to "The Millennium Earl"? Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 23:32, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Long Distance (Ivy album)[edit]

I'd like this to receive a copyedit for a potential FAC in the nearby future. Thank you to all. Carbrera (talk) 02:58, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Sasuke Uchiha[edit]

I would like to have this one copy-edited because it has potential to become an FA. MCMLXXXIX 00:01, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Kakashi Hatake[edit]

I would like to have this one copy-edited because it has potential to become an FA. MCMLXXXIX 00:01, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Sakura Haruno[edit]

I would like to have this one copy-edited because it has potential to become an FA. MCMLXXXIX 00:01, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Gus Grissom[edit]

I'll be expanding, copy editing, etc while I wait, but I will eventually be taking this to FA. Kees08 (talk) 06:27, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Roger B. Chaffee[edit]

I will be taking this to A-class review after the copy edit, and then onto FA. I do not believe there is much I can really add to the article, I read his biography and added in all the relevant information I could, so the article at current length will likely be what is proposed at FA. Kees08 (talk) 06:27, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Dostana (2008 film)[edit]

A very fine copy-editing would be appreciated for my future GA and FA nominations. Thanks.Krish | Talk 07:33, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Isabelle Eberhardt[edit]

I'm planning on nominating the GA article for FAC once it is copy-edited :). Freikorp (talk) 09:06, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Pakistan[edit]

A suggestion about nominating the article for at least a GA status on the article's talk page was made but now some IP has nominated it for GA status without letting others know. The article now needs an urgent copyedit. Last copyedited by the Guild in 2012. mfarazbaig 19:37, 23 February 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mfarazbaig (talkcontribs)
