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.)

  • Vanishing pint -- Completed, yet uncomplete. Missing information about the type (waiting for it in my bag) and a picture (and SPAG obviously), Thx in advance as always -- WardPhoenix
Assigning to Nabilou for review. -- S624 (talk) 21:18, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Barbeerian — Writing and picture complete. Possibly a little repetitive? Definitely needs spelling and grammar review. — SourceRunner (talk) 22:46, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Assigning to S624. — SourceRunner (talk) 23:36, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Can of ambrosia -- Wasn't in JanuWiki 2019 but I think it fit the theme (noticed it exist thanks to my in-game inventory). So complete (even though I think it lack something). Need revision and picture -- WardPhoenix
Assigning to Cham Almighty. — SourceRunner (talk) 23:34, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Drinkerella is complete and ready for review, though I feel like it could use something else, but I'm not sure what... -- Shanimal (talk) 07:19, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Wiki coding help

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

  • Help help! I accidentally added myself as author to the wrong topic. I wanted to create an entry for 'Tea Rex', but instead I clicked on 'Red Bull' by mistake. My name appears in the template at the top, and I lack the coding skills to remove that. (I've since added myself to 'Tea Rex' - correctly - but I'm stymied by my earlier mistake.) Help help! And apologies for the silly error. -- Cham Almighty (talk) 05:55, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Missions accomplished

This page has an archive

Old and/or inactive discussions have been moved to the /Archive subpage.
  • 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)
Tick.png Done Completed the text edits and added a picture. See View History for a summary of all changes. Thanks for the fun assignment! -- Cham Almighty (talk) 22:22, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
The author, SourceRunner, has said she's happy with the edits, so I think we're finished. Yay! But, process question! Does this section stay as is, for posterity, or is it deleted at this stage? (P.S. We are in danger of running out of colons...) -- Cham Almighty (talk) 07:47, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Never fear, there are always more colons! (Something something about colons being like opinions... 😉) The {{outdent}} template allows you to left-shift a conversation thread without losing track of it :)
I think that it's good for us all to see these back-and-forths, at least while we're still thinking and talking our way through issues as they come up. Let's keep the conversations intact until we clear out the JanuWiki edits from the page later on. (I know they'd be visible in the history, but only if someone goes looking for them, and out of sight, out of mind). -- Djonni (talk) 08:02, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
*dips into the colon pot once more* Sounds good to me, Djonni. cheers! -- Cham Almighty (talk) 08:15, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
  • 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)
Working on it now (thanks for sending me a note by PM, SourceRunner!). Text edits done, now working on an accompanying pic. Should be done later tonight. -- Cham Almighty (talk) 00:37, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Firstly, love your Beer Golem pic Cham Almighty 😆 I want to say for everyone's benefit though that it isn't completely necessary for the creator not editor to ensure that there's a pic on each article, I think for the sake of our creators we should do the text edits first, mark the article completed, update the "Progress" sections, and then worry about pictures or add the article to the "Something needed" table. (I'm certainly not criticising you Cham Almighty, just making a general observation 😊 I think your pic is fantastic!) -- Djonni (talk) 11:22, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip, Djonni! I agree that sequence makes sense. Will remember that in future. -- Cham Almighty (talk) 21:51, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Tick.png Done Editing completed and approved by author SourceRunner. Thanks everyone! -- Cham Almighty (talk) 08:13, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Tick.png Done Editing completed (there wasn't a lot to do!). I've left some notes on the topic's talk page for author S624. My gratitude to SourceRunner for her feedback. (By the way, I saw a "not done" graphic in the first entry under Writing Help so was wondering if a "done" graphic was called for here. Feel free to comment!) -- Cham Almighty (talk) 08:13, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Exclamation pint -- Not really a writing review request, but I added a crappy picture. If a reviewer can make the check and acknowledgement. Thx in advance!(yeah i love this formula) -- WardPhoenix
Tick.png Done :) -- Djonni (talk) 11:47, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Ale-chemist -- Writing finish because I'm stuck on ideas...Probably need a big load of polish maybe more texts, SPAG and a picture (yeah i know that makes a lot...). Thx in advance! -- WardPhoenix
Assigning this to myself -- S624 (talk) 20:09, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
I've added a picture! -- Shanimal (talk) 01:50, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Oh that's perfect Shanimal, credit to follow when I finish the article proofing. -- S624 (talk) 11:18, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Seems that S624 and I were falling over each other to credit you and your guild for the picture Shanimal, great picture! (And sorry for standing where you're walking S624!) -- Djonni (talk) 11:49, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── No problem Djonni, the event's really took off, so the more hands the merrier. -- S624 (talk) 12:47, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Tick.png Done Review completed. Great article WardPhoenix, polished & tightened up your base text, corrected SPAG & formatting. -- S624 (talk) 16:46, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
I'll do it! Well done, User:WardPhoenix -- SourceRunner (talk) 17:15, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Final review complete, and review tag removed per WardPhoenix’s approval. SPAG and based text tightened and adjusted for clarity. — SourceRunner (talk) 19:57, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

JanuWiki review assignments

Review completion checklist
In order of importance

On the article's final edit:

  • Remove {{Godwiki event review}}, with an edit summary.
  • Any further comments, explanations, or compliments on the talk page.

Here on Help:Requests:

  • Move request to "Missions accomplished".
  • {{m|done}}; (Tick.png Done;) in "Review assignments".

On JanuWiki 2019#Progress:

On Template:Navbox JanuWiki 2019:

  • Add the completed or picture needed 📷 icon.

Whenever unsure, copy-paste-edit existing examples. If you miss something or mess up something, someone will fix it.

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.
