Here you can request editing assistance from other wiki users who have volunteered to assist. (Stressed because nobody is obligated to provide assistance, and there are no guarantees of assistance. So, be polite and be appreciative!)

Instructions: Add a link below to the article you'd like help with, or just give the name if you don't know how to create a link, and (optionally) provide some brief details about what sort of help you need. Someone will take a look and see what they can do to help out.

Writing Help

(Requests for copy-editing, grammar, spelling, or other English language assistance.)


  • Beer Golem — Writing complete. Review definitely needed for grammar, usage, and consistency errors, please. And anything else you happen to see. Thank you! — SourceRunner 5:15 AM GVT, 1JAN2019
Cross.png Not done This is still open — I parachuted in to look at the technical request, below, but I'm not available for a full writing review I'm afraid. Not sure how to handle that situation, in terms of requests, but I'll remove the assignment below... point is, this is still up for grabs. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 16:08, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Alright. Thank you for all of your formatting work, FeRDNYC. I'll assign editing work to the next person down the list. So... Cham Almighty. -- SourceRunner (talk) 18:34, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Sit in a tavern and write fake diary entries — This is complete, and ready to review! I apologise in advance: I went very technical with this, and the entire article is in templates and nested templates, with div tags setting margins inside, and things like that. I created a new template {{Daily choice}} just to do what I wanted: have random diary entries generated every day, with (I'm pretty sure) no two the same in any month. Sooo... editing this one may be a challenge, sorry! 😅 -- Djonni (talk) 13:58, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Wonderful! I'll assign it to the next person down, which is... oh! Me! Yay! -- SourceRunner (talk) 18:34, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Coding Help

(Requests for assistance with wikicode in articles: Creating links, adding images, using {{templates}}, etc.)

  • Beer Golem — Tried to be thorough, but there are likely many missed linking opportunities, wnd the formatting on the “transcript” portion is not the best, but I’m at a loss for how else to make it work with an indent. Please help. Thank you. — SourceRunner
I took a quick look... I should be able to come up with something. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 04:31, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Many thanks. Will mark you as the editor of note for beer golem, under the assignments section. —SourceRunner
Tick.png Done Have a look. Technical notes left at Talk:Beer Golem. -- FeRDNYC (talk)

Missions accomplished

  • Lucky starfish grammar/spelling corrections, pleases -- "Fundamentally sound entry that has been lightly edited for SPAG. Main changes: pronouns are regularized to "it", with minor tweaks to spelling and grammar" -- Cham Almighty (talk) 18:17, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Exclamation pint — Brilliant! Minor changes: added a couple of links where appropriate, corrected "Monstro City", one duplicate 'the'. Also, it seems the in-game spelling is "liana-eyebrows", so pipe linked. An excellent article! -- Djonni (talk) 11:39, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Bear Minimum - Good article. Some corrections to phrasing made while hopefully keeping Terezka's intent. {{Hero or heroine}} template implemented & made change to 3rd person throughout. -- S624 (talk)

JanuWiki Review Assignments

As JanuWiki articles are marked as complete, we'll assign them to each other here. Articles will be assigned to each editor in turn, ensuring no editor is reviewing their own article.

Articles will be considered ready for review if they appear on Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Godwiki event review, or if the author adds it to this page with clear wording that it's finished.

If your review is taking some time, consider adding yourself as editor to the {{Godwiki event review}} template on the page to make it easier for the author to contact you, like so:

{{Godwiki event review|author=Author's name|editor=Editor's name}}

If for any reason you are unable to complete the review, no problem, just remove it from beside your name or assign it to the next editor. If you feel a page requires special skills, put a comment to that effect under #Writing Help or #Wiki Coding Help above, and someone with those skills will self-assign it.
