OnychopterellaEdit

Little Eva: The Flower of the SouthEdit

Hello. I did a rather large expansion on the above article, and I think a copy-edit would be helpful. I have no plans on working on the article further, but hopefully a c/e will provide a solid base for anyone interested in working on it further or anyone who just wants to read more about this very odd slice of American history. Apologies in advance as this one is very very rough. Thank you in advance! Aoba47 (talk) 04:31, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Kerry slugEdit

I will prepare this article for an FA application. The text is patchy and sometimes weird. It simply does not have a good flow and would really benefit from some professional copy editing. You guys are awesome, I hope you can help me here =) Daniel Cavallari (talk) 20:47, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

July 2019Edit

Sasha GreyEdit

Among others various 84.46.5[23].* IPs (=me) contributed to Sasha Grey from December 9, 2018 at size 43,870 bytes with 96 references, and nominated the page on March 15 as GA at size 62,186 bytes with 134 references. The GA1 review failed on March 25 at size 76,777 bytes with 165 references and a list of six remaining unfixed issues.
Five of those issues were addressed on March 28, the last remaining point was the suggestion that the article could be listed at the GOCE for copyediting work. As of today the page is at size 85,685 bytes with 191 references, and apparently stable (no changes since June 23). –84.46.53.150 (talk) 06:16, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
