Please note that Ed apologizes for the errant section title ("GOCE July 2012 Copy Edit Drive") in delivering the newsletter this month. It should have read "The Bugle: Issue LXXV, June 2012." With that...
This month's issue showcases a bumper crop of new Featured and A-Class articles, twenty-five in all—a record this year! More than half of those—fifteen in fact, another record for this year—are biographies, which neatly complements last month's interview segment with various editors discussing that very subject. We also had the largest field of editors this year in the monthly article-writing contest, and the highest number of entries submitted since January. Not surprisingly, considering the number of articles promoted during the month, May also saw five A-Class Medals awarded to project members, equaling the best tally this year.
In addition, there is an opportunity for an interested editor to work with the Old Weather project (), which "involves transcribing weather and historical information from WWI era Royal Navy ships. In the course of this project, [they have] uncovered information in the logs that updates or contradicts information in Wiki articles." Anyone who would like to work with them is encouraged to contact Lori Phillips at lori.byrd.phillipsgmail.com.
Anotherclown, in recognition of his huge contribution to improving Wikipedia's coverage of military history, and especially that of Australia, as well as making substantial efforts in relation to the project's assessment processes and other tasks.
