Scripts++ Newsletter – Issue 3

Extended content

Subpages

Hi @AE's talk page stalkers. In a few days, I intend to begin forking their scripts and take over maintaining them. I'd like to move the documentation pages, rather than rewriting my own, so if anyone has an objection to me moving them please let me know. --DannyS712 (talk) 00:06, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Please Come Back. :-)

I am very sad to hear that you are leaving Wikipedia. We Miss you and hope that you will return. Best, --Thegooduser Life Begins With a Smile :) 🍁 00:48, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I second that, you are a highly valuable asset to this project. Shellwood (talk) 19:27, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I third that, your contributions have worked on making this online encyclopedia more than it is, somehow multiplying anti-vandal-ness, repeating what has bean done before...
--TheCookieClicker (talk) 20:06, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Fourth. DiscussionCloser gave birth to ANI haikus! Of course everybody needs a break but I hope it's only temporary. Looking forward to your return in the not-too-distant future! Levivich 00:48, 4 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
(edit conflict) I am sad as well. Your user scripts, vandalism fighting, etc. was extremely useful, and you were a great person to talk with. Going on a WikiBreak is completely understandable, but I really hope that you come back eventually. Best, --SkyGazer 512 Oh no, what did I do this time? 00:58, 4 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Hi AE, Take a short break and please comeback. You did good work in Wikipedia and we appreciate you. Send me an email if you need to vent or talk. Cheers. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 08:00, 7 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Other news

June election: Jonesey95 was chosen to continue as lead coordinator, assisted by Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

New maintenance template added to our project scope: After a short discussion in June, we added ((cleanup tense)) to the list of maintenance templates that adds articles to the Guild's copy editing backlog categories. This change added 198 articles, spread over 97 months of backlog, to our queue. We processed all of those articles except for those from the three or four most recent months during the July backlog elimination drive (Here's a link to a "tense" discussion during the drive).

Progress report: As of 18:26, 24 September 2021 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors have processed 468 requests since 1 January and there were 60 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog of articles tagged for copy-editing stood at 433 (see monthly progress graph above).

December 2021 GOCE Newsletter

Guild of Copy Editors December 2021 Newsletter

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the December GOCE newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since September 2021.

                 Current and upcoming events

Election time: Our end-of-year election of coordinators opened for nominations on 1 December and will close on 15 December at 23:59 (UTC). Voting opens at 00:01 the following day and will continue until 31 December at 23:59, just before "Auld Lang Syne". Coordinators normally serve a six-month term and are elected on an approval basis. Self-nominations are welcome. If you've thought of helping out at the Guild, or know of another editor who would make a good coordinator, please consider standing for election or nominating them here.

December Blitz: We have scheduled a week-long copy-editing blitz for 12 to 18 December. Sign up now!

Drive and Blitz reports

September Drive: Almost 400,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 27 people who signed up, 21 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

October Blitz: From 17 to 23 October, we copy edited articles tagged in May and June 2021 and requests. 8 participating editors completed 26 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

November Drive: Over 350,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 21 people who signed up, 14 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

Other news

It is with great sadness that we report the death on 19 November of Twofingered Typist, who was active with the Guild almost daily for the past several years. His contributions long exceeded the thresholds for the Guild's highest awards, and he had a hand in innumerable good and featured article promotions as a willing collaborator. Twofingered Typist also served as a Guild coordinator from July 2019 to June 2021. He is sorely missed by the Wikipedia community.

Progress report: As of 30 November, GOCE copyeditors have completed 619 requests in 2021 and there were 51 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog stood at 946 articles tagged for copy-editing (see monthly progress graph above).

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.
