Amazed that you managed to do so much while still providing reviews for new copy editors. Great work as always! – Reidgreg (talk) 23:47, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Un celebre especialista...Edit

Replied on my talk page, but in case you don't see it: Sorry dude, didn't know you were ce-ing, thought it was drive-by good faith editing because I know you by username. I didn't know there'd be more edits after, sorry for disrupting, so I felt responsible to clean up where your change of phrasing obscured facts (bc I assume you simply don't know the specifics of the topic, ofc not deliberate) Carry on :) Kingsif (talk) 20:36, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Hillary ClintonEdit

Hi TfT. I have just noticed that this article is currently the fifth largest of the 6,762 Featured Articles - Wikipedia talk:Featured article candidates#Largest FAs by prose size. Thanks very much for taking it on anyway. (As a non-American I hesitated to tackle it myself, as I felt that I was all but certain to miss nuances.) Gog the Mild (talk) 13:25, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

  • @Gog the Mild: You're very welcome. When I finished the c/e I was left wondering (again) why anyone in their right mind would ever run for elected office! Twofingered Typist (talk) 14:00, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
Indeed. I am involved in a minor way in (very) local politics. I am repeatedly asked why I don't stand for (minor) office. If you have to ask the question ... Gog the Mild (talk) 14:03, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Taylor SwiftEdit

Before you go ahead, and only link all the sources websites in select sections, we generally only link them on their first occurrence to avoid over-linking. FrB.TG (talk) 20:12, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

@FrB.TG: Not that I disagree with you, but I was told some time ago all citations could be linked for readers' convenience. Are links in citations specified somewhere in the MOS? I've never found it. A majority of sources in this article had already been linked more than once before I began this copy edit for its TFA appearance. Please let me know. Given your experience with FAs, I'll abide by your suggestion. Thanks! Twofingered Typist (talk) 20:27, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
If you plan to link all the sources in the article, I am fine by it, which is what you are trying to do I think. FrB.TG (talk) 04:20, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
