December 2020Edit

Marcelo GallardoEdit

So, I've been putting some hard work on this article and I'm planning to take it to GA (GAN) status. Since English is not my native language, I feel like I need some help with prose/copy-edit and such problems. I worked on GAs before, but I've been inactive for years (plus I don't have any experience working on soccer coaches' articles) so any suggestions would be welcome. For example, I've never been good at writing leads, so that may be a start. Thanks in advance Gunt50 (talk) 12:29, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

CrusadingEdit

Big expansion of what was once a redirect, so it could do with the usual excellent GOCE once over please, before GAN. 2A00:23C7:4E01:9C01:385B:DDCC:837:BA46 (talk) 17:25, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

Note: this IP requester does not appear to have contributed to this article; see its history. Discuss at REQ Talk. Baffle☿gab 15:48, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
The IP requester hasn't but I have. I support the request, it is a good idea. Is this OK, or do I need to do more to make sure it gets the copy edit it deserves? Thanks Norfolkbigfish (talk) 23:16, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
No worries Norfolkbigfish; I've struck my note. Carry on. :) Cheers Baffle☿gab 01:35, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Hannah MontanaEdit

I have been working on the Disney television series Hannah Montana and just had it upgraded to a Good Article. I will be looking at doing a Peer Review (PR) and nominating as a FAC in the future, so I would appreciate a copy-edit before I do so. Many thanks in advance.

2nd Infantry Division (United Kingdom)Edit

This article has been heavily expanded recently, and is quiet large (92k). The intent is to make an FAN out of this article. Can an editor help bring the language and grammar up to standard? If possible, help cut any deadweight/fluff?

Would it be inappropriate to also request the same treatment (FAL intent) to sub articles (just a couple of extra paragraphs really): List of orders of battle for the British 2nd Division, List of senior officers of British 2nd Division, and List of Victoria Cross recipients from the British 2nd Division‎?EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 16:32, 29 December 2020 (UTC)

Please limit requests to one article at a time. Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:17, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

This article has been recently expanded by yours truly and could do with a neat copyedit for a future GAN nomination. MWright96 (talk) 10:24, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Huey LongEdit

This article is about Huey Long, the governor of Louisiana and a US Senator. A proponent of radical solutions to end the Great Depression, he was assassinated in 1935. A GA, it has had a peer review and just failed as a FAC and needs some prose work. The issues were discussed at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Huey Long/archive1. ~ HAL333 14:05, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Note I've done a decent amount of work since nominating this: it's 80% of its previous length and can be be read in 30 minutes. ~ HAL333 02:47, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

This article, rated top-importance for WP:POLAND, reached GA status in 2006 and has recently been nominated for re-assessment (GAR) which is currently ongoing.

Pride CanterburyEdit

This page has recently had significate changes made and would benefit from a review by someone who fully understands Wikipedia's style manuals, etc. This was put forward for copy-editing before and declined in September 2019 as some tags cropped up on the page about needing more sources (which have now been supplied, in excess). I think now is a good time for the page to be reviewed as it is now beyond passed it's brand-new stage. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. Jwikiediting (talk) 01:17, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Lao People's Revolutionary PartyEdit

This is the first article I've written for Wikipedia. I'm not sure if it's up to the proper Wikipedia standards. I see, from above, that you copyeditors are requesting information on the purpose of the copyediting, if I'm to nominate this article to GA, FA or A-class. Sure, I can do that. But that has never crossed my mind. I want to make the articles the best as they can be. If that means turning them into GA, A or FA articles I will do it.

Would it be too much to ask for a rundown of my most common grammar mistakes? :P --Ruling party (talk) 21:06, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Valentina (singer)Edit

I would like to request a copyedit of these two articles. They are up for DYK.

The worst part is "She says that she probably was two and a half when she sang her first song. Her mother sang her to sleep with Italian songs, so the first songs Valentina sang were Italian as well." ;-) --Moscow Connection (talk) 00:59, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Update. I rewrote the lead. Now I'm not sure about how the last sentence looks. ("In 2020, she represented France at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song "J'imagine" and won".)
