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!

October 2016[edit]


Hello, I have expanded this article about an episode of the American science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager. I would greatly appreciate a thorough copyedit as I have done a majority of the edits over the course of two days so I am sure there are quite a few errors or rough spots. I would really like to nominate this for FAC someday in the future to add more featured content to this series (yet another one to add to my never-ending list of FL candidates lol) Thank you in advance!

yellow tickY Partly done I helped with a few rough patches but it needs a more experienced hand for FAC. - Reidgreg (talk) 16:30, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
@Reidgreg: Thank you again for the help. Aoba47 (talk) 19:48, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
You're welcome, Aoba47. It looks like most copyeditors are taking the backlog in order (as is fair), with close to half of September's checked now. So this should get some attention in a few more days. (I want to see what I missed!) - Reidgreg (talk) 20:40, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
@Reidgreg: You did an excellent job, and I look forward to having it improved through further copy-editing. I am not in a hurry; I greatly value all of the copy editors as I always had a wonderful experience working with them. Aoba47 (talk) 02:32, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Nada Es Igual... (Luis Miguel album)[edit]

Just completed the article and would like a quick copy-edit for GA status. Erick (talk) 22:52, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Pop Warner[edit]

A (hopefully) minor ce requested, as it has passed GA. Collaboration between a user of American English and a once Russian user who is more than competent with English but e. g. would leave out articles like "the", etc. and it would be nice to see if I've got them all, on top of any of my own errors. Cake (talk) 02:29, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum[edit]

Please could you complete a general copyedit of this article. I'm trying to bring the article to a C-class. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 14:01, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum[edit]

Could you please also complete a general copyedit of this article. It is currently rated C-class, but the prose appears poor to me. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 14:03, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Make Me Like You[edit]

Would love to bring this article to featured status and think here would be a good place to try again; thanks so much. Carbrera (talk) 04:40, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Lake Tauca[edit]

I've worked on this for more than a month and just pushed it live. I plan to bring it to GAN but I'd like someone with keen copyedit skills to take a gander at it. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 19:33, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Requesting a copy edit (prose and grammar) of this article before its GA nomination. MWright96 (talk) 12:10, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

St. Anger[edit]

I believe it's got a fair shot at FA. Since it was promoted to GA in 2009 by a now-retired user, I'd like to get a quick refresher on it so I can see if I can try for me first FA one day. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 19:28, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Shannen Doherty filmography[edit]

I have recently created this list, and I would greatly appreciate a thorough c/e as I am sure there are many errors. I would like to put this up for FLC sometime in the future, after I put more work into it. Thank you in advance! Aoba47 (talk) 15:19, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Advaita Vedanta[edit]

This is a bulky article with many edit styles. Have worked on structure and style but it needs significantly more work. A copy edit will help put it up for featured article list. Nrityam (talk) 07:02, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello! I just finished my first article in Wikipedia. English is my second language, so please come and help me copy edit it. Thank you for your help! -- XinqiaoCheng (talk) 06:51, 22 October 2016 (UTC)


I have greatly expanded this article over the course of two days. I would greatly appreciate a thorough c/e, especially given that I put a lot of information up in a short amount of time. This is the first that I have worked on an article like this (about a living person) so I could definitely use some help. Thank you in advance. Aoba47 (talk) 05:02, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi, could I have this article copy edited? I think it's an interesting article about an Umayyad painting, I nominated it for DYK, but the reviewer suggested a native speaker to copy edit it. Thanks! HaEr48 (talk) 19:13, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
