August 2019Edit

Akane YamaguchiEdit

Hello. This article has been significantly expanded compared to before, but still has many grammatical errors. Looking forward to your help. Thanks you. Fdery (talk) 07:28, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

BastarnaeEdit

This is an interesting history and archaeology article about a little known group of ancient people, the Bastarnae. The article is in relatively good shape. I did a first pass of copy-editing myself but it would be great if it undergoes a professional copy-editing session. Thanks in advance! Codrin.B (talk) 08:10, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

American footballEdit

I managed to get this article promoted to good article status in 2013, but attempts at a featured article nomination stalled. One of my regrets is not having followed up and gotten this to featured article, and as the flagship article of Wikipedia:WikiProject American football and one of our major sports articles, I feel it should be as good as possible. While I feel this article is in excellent shape, and it remains a very good article, my primary aim here is to ensure this article meets its mandate: an introductory article on the sport that is readable and understandable to those unfamiliar with the sport, so I'm hoping a copyedit here will further improve readability. Toa Nidhiki05 23:16, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

Shinya KogamiEdit

Might need a general copyedit especially in the recent new real world information. Cheers.Tintor2 (talk) 16:48, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

  Working - Baffle☿gab 01:58, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
 Y Partly done; I have c/e'd all but the "Appearances" section, which I found confusing, so I'd like someone else to finish the requested c/e. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 01:14, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Special Area Games SchemeEdit

This is the third article I have written on Wikipedia and would like to take it for featured status soon after the GA nomination so it would be really helpful if any generous user helps me with the process. As it is already evident that I am very new on Wikipedia so your guidance is requested. Thanks and regards.-Deepak G Goswami (talk) 17:25, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

DeactivatorsEdit

Its currently at FAC and one reviewer said the article needs a copyedit. Hoping to get a copyedit as soon as possible so the nomination doesn't close on me. GamerPro64 18:10, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

That "one reviewer" would be me. A copy editor may find it helpful to look at my comments in the FAC of some of the potential areas for improvement. Gog the Mild (talk) 21:05, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Cadet Nurse CorpsEdit

I expect to nominate this article for an ACR. A general copyedit would be helpful. Thanks! Pendright (talk) 21:03, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

"A Tree Grows in Guadalajara"Edit

Hello. I would greatly appreciate a copy-edit of the above article that I recently expanded. I do not have any intentions on working on the article further, although I think a copy-edit would be helpful for anyone interested in improving it further or just wants to know more about the episode in question. Thank you in advance! Aoba47 (talk) 03:11, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

VietnamEdit

This is a prominent article (hundreds of thousands of page views per month) with a lot of copyediting issues. I fixed a few, but almost every section I checked had grammatical issues in a few sentences. Straight up typos are rare, but tense mixup, subject-verb agreement and extremely awkward / confusing sentence construction are rife. Could use a thorough read-through by a good editor. Ganesha811 (talk) 17:01, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

Mike Wallace Is HereEdit

A film about Mike Wallace. For GAN.___CAPTAIN MEDUSAtalk 12:37, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

September 2019Edit

1957 NCAA University Division Basketball Championship GameEdit

I currently have the article above nominated for FA at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/1957 NCAA University Division Basketball Championship Game/archive1. One of the editors suggested I ask for a copy edit of the article from a third-party. I figured this might be the place to do it, so please let me know if I am in the wrong place. Please let me know if I can do anything to assist this process. Disc Wheel (T + C) 17:02, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

The Young and the HopelessEdit

Planning to take to GA. Yeepsi (talk) 08:49, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Murder of Rachael Runyan‎Edit

Needs a general proof-read and grammar check plus are feminine pronouns etc. used correctly? Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 10:42, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

1985 World Snooker ChampionshipEdit

Probably the most important snooker championship of all time. Needs a copyedit before a potential FA push Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 10:48, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

OṣóEdit

I am requesting that copy edits be made to the article linked above. It recently failed a GA nomination and the reviewer suggested that said article be looked at. I'd appreciate it if anyone takes a look at it.  Versace1608  Wanna Talk? 22:42, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Note: Correct me if I'm wrong; I think this means, "please copy-edit this article in preparation for a Featured Article nomination". :) Cheers,Baffle☿gab 20:11, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Smooth Island (Tasmania)Edit

Have already been working hard to improve the article's content. Trying to reach Class A status. I'd really appreciate the CE Guild's help. Thank you! Vitreology (talk) 05:12, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Yazdegerd IEdit

Hi. I am requesting a copy edit to prepare this article for a GA nomination. Thanks in advance! --HistoryofIran (talk) 08:32, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

IndiaEdit

This article is due to lead the main page as Today's Featured Article on 2 October. It was promoted in September 2004 and has successfully weathered three FARs since, the last in 2011. As you can imagine, it attracts a high rate of editing and it would be helpful if someone could check that it is one "of the best articles Wikipedia has to offer" in terms of prose and MoS-compliance. Thanks. Gog the Mild (talk) 11:56, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Discussion moved to Requests talk page. It may be helpful if prospective copy editors were to skim it before starting work. Thanks. Gog the Mild (talk) 16:49, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Requesting a copy edit before possibly nominating for GA status. Thank you in advance! --Another Believer (Talk) 20:38, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Un célebre especialista sacando muelas en el gran Hotel EuropaEdit

The article had a review in August, but I just gave it a big set of edits, including a restructure, some clarifications, moving the ref style over the sfn, and incorporating the last bits of advice left with the last c/e. I'd love to see where other editors think the article is at now. The plan is to get this to FA in time for the film's anniversary to see if it could get on the main page for that. Having had a c/e so recently, I don't mind if it takes longer than usual to reach this :) Kingsif (talk) 04:58, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Cebu City CouncilEdit

Hi! I want your help on this as I have nominated this for DYK and GA. Maybe you can give some insights and some things to improve. Thanks! Emperork (talk) 13:19, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello! Would like to have a quick CE of this article, as it failed GA nomination. Thank you! Truflip99 (talk) 14:43, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Crash Course (YouTube)Edit

Hi, I would like to eventually nom Crash Course (YouTube) for a GAR, but I definitely would like it to go through a copy edit process first. Thank you for the assistance and best wishes, Soulbust (talk) 20:30, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

  Working As a fan of this channel myself, I'm happy to take on the request :) Robotxlabs (talk) 23:07, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Raymond III, Count of TripoliEdit

The article is about a controversial crusader leader who was not only count of Tripoli, but also the actual ruler of Jerusalem. Before its GAN, the article needs a comprehensive copyedit. Thank you for your work. Borsoka (talk) 01:08, 15 September 2019 (UTC)'

Leila (novel)Edit

Planning for GA. A ce will help. Thanks. Yashthepunisher (talk) 10:04, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Planning to take to GA. Yeepsi (talk) 19:59, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Caveira (Rainbow Six Siege)Edit

Requesting a copy-edit to make sure this article is as ready as possible for a future good article nomination. Micro (Talk) 09:06, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

SnookerEdit

Been meaning to work on this one for a while. Looking for a GA push, but needs some cleanup! Thanks for your help. Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 15:52, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

McMahon–Hussein CorrespondenceEdit

This article is about a key moment at the beginning of the modern Middle East, which "haunted Anglo-Arab relations" for decades thereafter. It reached GA last year, but I think it needs some help to reach FA. Onceinawhile (talk) 22:17, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Mandate for PalestineEdit

This article can thought of as "Part 2" to the Balfour Declaration (which received help from GOCE ahead of its FA in 2017), as the Mandate was the legal form which the Balfour Declaration took. It also represented Britain's attempts to reconcile the Balfour Declaration with the McMahon–Hussein Correspondence (see immediately above). Plus it represents the beginning of the modern history of Israel-Palestine, as well as Jordan. The article achieved GA status today, after a very thorough review process. A GOCE review would help it on its way to reach FA. Onceinawhile (talk) 22:17, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Guru Sishyan (1988 film)Edit

I plan on taking this to GA. Prose isn't my strong point, so this will need great copyediting. Kailash29792 (talk) 12:44, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

2002 Austrian Grand PrixEdit

This is quite a lengthy article so a copy-edit to its prose would be desirable before I take it to GAN. MWright96 (talk) 13:57, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

North Korean Embassy in Madrid raidEdit

This article was just passed at GAN, but after I did a number of post-passage copyedits in a few sections I ran into a couple of incomplete sentences and places where the prose wasn't really clear and concise, and it became clear that the prose still needed work to reach the "well written" section of the GA criteria. I hope that the guild can bring it to that state. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 06:56, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Raúl Hernández BarrónEdit

Biography about a deceased Mexican drug lord. Planning to nominate to GA but I often encounter prose issues since English is not my first language. A copyedit will be greatly appreciated. Thank you! MX () 13:36, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Tiwa SavageEdit

I'd appreciate it if someone performs a copyedit to this page. I nominated it for GA a while back and I'm still awaiting for someone to evaluate it against the GA criteria.  Versace1608  Wanna Talk? 01:15, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Madara UchihaEdit

This was nominated by another editor for DYK, and the article probably needs a copyedit because right now it's a bit hard to read. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 04:50, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Beaverton Transit CenterEdit

Hello! I have nominated this article for GA and would appreciate a copy edit. :) Thank you!! Truflip99 (talk) 15:32, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
