Balancierhebelkupplung[edit]

"Thanks a lot" for deleting Balancierhebelkupplung now I had to find de:Balancierhebelkupplung again. Give potential translators a chance. also @Bermicourt: Peter Horn User talk 00:34, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

The English translation would be Balance lever coupler. Peter Horn User talk 01:00, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Translation could also be Equalising lever coupler Peter Horn User talk 01:22, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Hi Peter Horn. These pages were deleted after unanimous support for deletion after more than a week at a deletion discussion that you were informed of (it's possible a bot archived your talk page before you saw the notifications). While I appreciate your work to translate pages from other Wikipedias, those sorts of links are live and suggest to readers we have content here on the English Wikipedia where we don't. In the short term, that deletion discussion should provide links to the other pages you need. In the longer term, I'd recommend listing such pages in your userspace, where the notes will be helpful to you without being exposed to all readers. --BDD (talk) 13:05, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll gather things there. Peter Horn User talk 15:40, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
I don't yet have a userspace as such. Would I need to create one? Peter Horn:Userspace

Alternatively could these pages be listed on "request for translation"? Peter Horn User talk 15:52, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

(ping) "Userspace" means not a separate namespace altogether, but anything with "User:" in it. You could list them on your main user page, or create a subpage of anything you like, e.g., User:Peter Horn/Translation. See WP:UP and WP:UP#SUB for more information. And yes, you could list these at Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English. --BDD (talk) 17:12, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

2020s in film[edit]

You deleted that article in 2015, per this RFD, since the article was created too far in advance. With the 2020s coming up in a few months, I figure we're probably close enough to get the article started. I'm going to pattern it after 2010s in film. Feel free to re-delete if you like. Useight (talk) 01:22, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

My, how time passes! I don't think it's too soon. :) --BDD (talk) 13:20, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

September 2019 GOCE Newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors September 2019 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the September newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since June 2019.

June election: Reidgreg was chosen as lead coordinator, and is being assisted by Baffle gab1978, Miniapolis, Tdslk, and first-time coordinator Twofingered Typist. Jonesey95 took a respite after serving for six years. Thanks to everyone who participated!

June Blitz: From 16 to 22 June, we copy edited articles on the themes of nature and the environment along with requests. 12 participating editors completed 35 copy edits. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

July Drive: The year's fourth backlog-elimination drive was a great success, clearing all articles tagged in January and February, and bringing the copy-editing backlog to a low of five months and a record low of 585 articles while also completing 48 requests. Of the 30 people who signed up, 29 copyedited at least one article, a participation level last matched in May 2015. Final results and awards are listed here.

August Blitz: From 18 to 24 August, we copy edited articles tagged in March 2019 and requests. 12 participating editors completed 26 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: As of 03:00, 23 September 2019 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors had processed 413 requests since 1 January. The backlog of tagged articles stood at 599 articles, close to our record month-end low of 585.

Requests page: We are experimenting with automated archiving of copy edit requests; a discussion on REQ Talk (permalinked) initiated by Bobbychan193 has resulted in Zhuyifei1999 writing a bot script for the Guild. Testing is now underway and is expected to be completed by 3 October; for this reason, no manual archiving of requests should be done until the testing period is over. We will then assess the bot's performance and discuss whether to make this arrangement permanent.

September Drive: Our current backlog-elimination drive is open until 23:59 on 30 September (UTC) and is open to all copy editors. Sign up today!

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators, Baffle gab1978, Miniapolis, Reidgreg, Tdslk and Twofingered Typist.
