There is contention between three editors at War of the Pacific about whether the section on causes of the war should be tagged for undue weight, and as to whether the article needs a substantial rework to better reflect Chilean historiography, Peruvian historiography, and Bolivian historiography. This has been going off and on for a year or so. Formal mediation was recently reflected, but there was no agreement on mediation. Can editors who are familiar with the South American historiography but have not edited in the past please take a look at the article? Robert McClenon (talk) 20:08, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
It needs a little more copyediting than I first expected. Are you available Corinne? :-) Marek.69talk 00:37, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
Marek69 Well, I had already accepted an assignment to copy-edit Sarawak and just remembered today. I'll complete Sarawak first, and then, if no one else has accepted History of South America, I'll get to that one. – Corinne (talk) 01:32, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
In response to a request made at Wikipedia:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors/Requests by Marek69 for an editor who has some knowledge of Spanish to copy-edit Insular Chile, while referring to the Spanish WP article Chile insular (linked in the languages section at the left), I have done the best I can. I read the Spanish article carefully and worked to put the English article into standard English while ensuring it reflected the information in the Spanish WP article. However, there is one part that I could not figure out, so it still does not sound right in English (besides the fact that it seems tacked onto an already long sentence). It is the last part of the second paragraph of the lead. I wonder if someone who is really fluent in Spanish and English could fix this part and check the rest of the article for accuracy. – Corinne (talk) 02:38, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
