To increase the visibility of our project, please add {{GOCE}} to the talk page of articles you have copy-edited from either the backlog—having removed the {{copyedit}} tag—or from the Requests page. See the template's documentation for details on its use.
WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors  
A version of this article was copy edited by a member of the Guild of Copy Editors. The Guild welcomes all editors with a good grasp of English and Wikipedia's policies and guidelines to help in the drive to improve articles. Visit our project page if you're interested in joining! If you have questions, please direct them to our talk page.
Alternatively, GOCE copy edits can be noted in the {{Article history}} banner. This may be appropriate if the article has undergone multiple GOCE copy edits or the page is particularly crowded with banners. Use the parameters as below, adjusting the action# so that the copy edit fits chronologically with other article history events. The result field must be copyedited to generate GOCE links.
| action2       = WPR
| action2date   = date (in any format) of final edit to complete copy edit
| action2link   = WP:GOCER (no brackets) or its archive page, or a link to a discussion of the copy edit
| action2result = copyedited
| action2oldid  = oldid of final edit to complete copy edit
If you find an article that cannot be copy edited because multiple problems render the article unworkable until the other issues have been resolved, you may add the template {{GOCEreviewed}} to the article's talk page. See the template's documentation for details on its use.

User talk pagesEdit

You can inform users that you have started work on their copy edit request at the Requests page by placing {{GOCEstartce}} on their talk pages:
You can inform users that the copy-edit they requested on the Requests page has been completed by placing the template {{GOCEtb}} on their talk pages:
You can request updates about seemingly abandoned copy-edit requests by placing {{GOCE-ab}} on the respondent's talk page no earlier than seven days after their last edit to the article:
If a respondent has made no edits to an article s/he accepted a copy-edit request for, you can use {{GOCE-ab-noedits}} no earlier than seven days after the acceptance.

Page creation templatesEdit

The following templates are used to create pages for our regular, bi-monthly Drives and Blitzes. Carefully read the instructions for including variables like the start and end dates, coordinators' names, and themes and targets. Variables and wikilinks in the "Signing up" sections must be manually inserted. These templates must be substituted (copied to the page you're creating); type subst: after the first pair of curly brackets before the template name. If you don't substitute these templates, you won't be able to edit the Drive or Blitz page.
