Copyediting-L

Copyediting-L is a list for copy editors and other defenders of the English language who want to discuss anything related to editing: sticky style issues; philosophy of editing; newspaper, technical, and other specialized editing; reference books; client relations; Internet resources; electronic editing and software; freelance issues; and so on. Carol Roberts started the list at Cornell University in December 1992 and passed ownership of the list to Beth Goelzer Lyons. Bill Blinn and Jane Lyle became the list owners in the late 1990s. At the end of 2013, they turned ownership over to Katharine O'Moore-Klopf and John Renish.

We have two lists: Copyediting-L (nicknamed CE-L) is the main list, where topics such as politics, religion, sex, and operating-system evangelism are forbidden. Copyediting-Off-list-L (nicknamed CEL-O) is the "chat" list, where all topics are permitted. Subscribing to the off-list requires that you be already subscribed to the main list.

Both lists explicitly forbid personal attacks and commercial posts.

  • The server will respond with a welcome message. You are now subscribed.

Yes, it's true that this isn't structured as a traditional FAQ, but it's intended to serve the same purpose.

Introduction to Copyediting-L

IMPORTANT: In April 2012, Copyediting-L (CE-L) and Copyediting-Off-list-L (CEL-O) were migrated from Indiana University's Listserv server to a new Sympa server.

For GENERAL INFORMATION about Sympa, see the IU List Service Help Page. A description of all the commands you can send to Sympa is available on the Commands page.

Before posting, please read this section.

By reading or posting messages to Copyediting-L, you agree that CE-L’s list owners and members cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by this system. This includes, but is not limited to, damage caused by its users, hackers, and hardware or software failures. There is no guarantee of reliable service or security of information. All information placed on CE-L is to be considered public. While we do our best to stop inappropriate use of the list and harassment, we cannot prevent it entirely. List owners reserve the right to limit posting, suspend accounts, or deny access to anyone at any time. List owners will never ask you for your password; anyone who does so is a fraud.

Copyediting-L uses a “tag” system to categorize messages so that non-digest subscribers can include or exclude specific topics. All posts should have an identifying tag in the subject line, and tags must be spelled and punctuated precisely. There is also an auxiliary “off-list” list for discussions not directly related to editing.

Copyediting-L is a busy list. We recommend that you choose to receive individual messages because this allows you to filter the list mail based on the “tags” that subscribers use in their subject lines. Subscribers who choose the digest format always receive all messages posted to the list.

Please quote sparingly. As editors, we should be able to trim quoted material to include only the essential parts. When a post includes a long and involved explanation to set the stage for a question, there is no need for respondents to repeat the introduction in their answer. Those who quote excessively will receive reminders from a list owner; continued excessive quoting may result in posting limitations.

On-line Resources

The Copyediting-L (CE-L) archive: https://iulist.indiana.edu/sympa/arc/copyediting-l

The Copyediting-Off-List-L (CEL-O) archive: https://iulist.indiana.edu/sympa/arc/copyediting-off-list-l

Access to the archives is limited to subscribers. You must log in to view the archives. If you have not previously created a password, click the First Login link in the upper left corner and then follow the instructions to create login credentials.

Privacy

CE-L and CEL-O are set up so that only the list owners can see the names and e-mail addresses in the list of subscribers. Other subscribers will, of course, see your name and e-mail address when you post messages. The archives are available only to subscribers. This does not mean that what you post to the list is private. Anyone may join the list, and subscribers may forward your messages to others. Don’t post anything that you wouldn’t want your mother, your mother-in-law, and your immediate supervisor to read.

General Information

In December 1992, Carol Roberts started this list at Cornell University. The second list owner was Beth Goelzer Lyons. Bill Blinn and Jane Lyle served as list co-owners from the late 1990s through 2013. Katharine O'Moore-Klopf and John Renish have been the list co-owners since the end of 2013.

Subsequent references to Copyediting-L also apply to Copyediting-Off-List-L except when specified otherwise.

Copyediting-L is an unmoderated list, which means that your posts are sent to the list immediately without being reviewed by a list owner. However, subscribers who engage in unacceptable behavior may be placed on moderated status or removed from the list.

The default mail setting is digest, which means that you will receive one or more digests. All digests from the previous day are sent at 6am Eastern time. Digests are not edited or condensed. To make the list posts easier to manage and to improve timeliness, the list owners enthusiastically recommend changing your account settings to receive individual messages. See “Managing Your Subscription” to learn how to make changes to your subscription.

Only subscribers can send messages to Copyediting-L. If the address you use to send mail varies in any way from the address you used when you subscribed, the server will not recognize you as a subscriber. Contact the list owners for help.

Copyright restrictions apply to all Copyediting-L material, including the archives and this document. Copyediting-L material may not be used commercially without the permission of the author(s), who retain full copyright to their words.

These guidelines are subject to interpretation by the list owners, who make every effort to apply them consistently and fairly. Those who fail to comply with the guidelines will receive off-list reminders and, if inappropriate posts continue, may have their posting rights restricted, suspended, or revoked.

Guidelines for Posting to the List

Please keep messages as short as possible. CE-L is a busy list, and needlessly long messages are tedious.

When replying to a message,  keep only as much of the original text as is necessary to frame your reply.

Use a descriptive subject line with the appropriate tag. Many people use the subject line to decide whether they want to read a message, and some use the tags to filter messages. See “Subject Lines and Tags” for details.

Copyright restrictions apply. Provide a complete bibliographic citation for all copyrighted materials and obtain permission as required from the original author before posting.

Poll or survey questions (Example: “How many of you ...?”) are permitted on the list, but those who ask such questions should request that all responses be sent to them privately. It is their responsibility to compile the responses and provide a brief summary to the list.

Inappropriate Topics

Political comments are not permitted on the main list. The Internet is home to many political discussion lists, but CE-L is not one of them. Evangelizing for Windows, Mac, or Linux platforms is unwelcome. Choose your computing platform, your religion (or lack thereof), your word processor, and your pet to suit yourself. Allow others to choose theirs.

Posts reporting minor typos in publications or mispronunciations by radio or television personalities are not appropriate. People have been confusing “libery” with “library,” “Febuary” with “February,” and “Calvary” with “cavalry” since these words entered the language. Likewise, grocery store signs using “it’s” as a possessive are singularly unremarkable. The planet Earth is surrounded by air, but most of us do not find this fact to be worthy of comment.

Advertisements are forbidden. Brief (up to 10 lines) “help wanted” ads are allowed if you include off-list contact information. Brief (up to 10 lines) announcements of editing-related conferences, seminars, and meetings that are open to non-members are also allowed if you include off-list contact information. Do not post an entire conference schedule, and do not post the announcement more than once.

Do not post a question that can be unequivocally answered by consulting a dictionary, the Chicago Manual of Style, the AP Stylebook, or any other common reference. Questions about variations in the answers provided by those references, as well as questions about interpretations, are welcome.

Do not point out grammar or spelling mistakes in messages unless the author has explicitly asked for such advice. We are all human. We all commit typos. In short: Respect each other. Diversity in editing and opinions about editing is encouraged. Civilized argumentation and debate are fine. Character digs and personal attacks are not. You are responsible for what you write. Those who cannot be civil will be removed from the list.

Avoid posting messages from other lists. If you have a list of one-liners that you want to share, post three or four of them to CEL-O (not to CE-L) and offer to send the full list to those who contact you privately. If you’ve received an e-zine or e-mail that contains information you feel would be helpful to others, describe it and provide a link to the original or offer the full message to those who request it.

Do not post urban legends or virus warnings.

While it might seem unfriendly or even rude, we discourage posting “thank-you” messages to the list. CE-L subscribers tend to be generous in sharing their knowledge and expertise, and if everyone thanked each person who helped, about half of the list traffic would be thank-you notes. Unless someone has gone to extreme measures to help you, please send thank-you messages privately.

If you are traveling and would like to meet CE-L subscribers in your destination city, post a message to the list and indicate the dates you will be in the other city. Follow-up arrangements should be made off-list.

Including a URL in Your Post

If you place a URL in your post, please also include information about where the URL leads and why CE-L subscribers would want to go there. Post the full URL inside greater than / less than symbols. Example:
<www.copyediting-l.info> or <http://www.copyediting-l.info>

Please be sure to include < and > and do not use a URL shortening service. After several years of explaining to people that URL shortening services such as bit.ly, tinyurl.com, and goo.gl would help communicate URLs that are long enough to break across lines, we must now take the opposite approach because certain system administrators have concluded that these services are evil.

CE-L shorthand

You may occasionally see some unfamiliar terms in CE-L posts. For example:

  • CE-L = Copyediting-L
  • The CE-Lery = All Copyediting-L listmates collectively (a vegetable joke based on the nickname CE-L)
  • CEL-O = Copyediting-Off-List-L
  • Fe = irony or sarcasm (Fe is the chemical symbol for iron)
  • Stalks = All Copyediting-L listmates collectively (a vegetable joke based on the nickname CE-Lery)
  • TIA or Spanish aunt (aunt in Spanish is tia) = “Thanks in advance”

Avoid Excessive Quoting

The number one bothersome trait the list owners hear about fairly regularly is excessive quoting. Questions often contain additional information that makes the question complete and detailed. Much of this extra information need not be (and should not be) quoted in the reply.

For CE-L subscribers who receive digests instead of individual messages, excessive quoting is even more troublesome.

Summarizing is a good choice

Some subscribers summarize the question succinctly instead of quoting. This takes extra time and effort, but it substantially reduces list clutter. We don't all have the time or the inclination to summarize, but we should all at least be able to edit the quoted material to omit those parts that have little bearing on the answer.

Before sending a message to the list, please examine it.

  1. Have you deleted (at the very least) the original sender's signature and the archive tag line?
  2. Have you left more of the original text than is necessary for readers to understand what you're responding to?

If the quoted text is longer than your reply, please examine the message again with particular attention to point 2.

Return to Table of Contents

Subject Lines and Tags

No message is complete until it has a tag and a descriptive subject line. No new topic should ever begin with the CHAT tag. Tags may be written in upper case, lower case, or mixed case.

Before sending either an original message or a reply to someone else’s message, glance at the subject line to confirm that the tag and the descriptive subject are properly formatted and appropriate to the subject matter. If you are replying to a message that has no tag or an incorrect tag, please add or correct the tag.

Tags must be spelled exactly as shown below. Please note that JOB-OP has a hyphen between the two words. The tag must be followed by a colon. The colon must be followed by a space. The space is then followed by the subject. Example: TAG: This is a properly formatted subject line.

The server will add [CE-L] or [CEL-O] to the left of the tag. Please do not add this on your own.

Except for CHAT, tags may be combined. This should be done sparingly, though, and CHAT should never be combined with any other tag. No topic should ever begin with a CHAT tag. If the topic is so far afield that the first post would require that it be labeled CHAT, then the message belongs on CEL-O, not on CE-L.

URGENT is not a tag. If you need a prompt answer, place the word “URGENT” in the descriptive subject section. Example:

      QUERY URGENT: This is incorrect
      QUERY: URGENT This is correct

STYLE is not a tag. Please do not use it as a tag.

Return to Table of Contents

Valid Tags

  • ADMIN: List owner use ONLY. If you reply to an ADMIN message on-list, please change the tag.
  • BIZ: Business practices, rates (limited, please), journalism, media, and conference announcements (announcements are limited to a MAXIMUM of 10 lines).
  • CHAT: As threads mutate from their original topic, posters may use the CHAT tag, but the discussion should continue on CEL-O. Exception: The occasional pun war is a part of CE-L’s heritage and may be continued on the main list. Pun wars are usually of short duration.
  • CONF: Short (10 lines maximum, preferably less) announcements about upcoming conferences and other programs of interest to editors. Only one post per event is permitted, and subscribers should limit themselves to one such post per quarter.
  • JOB-OP: Job opportunities. No advertisements or “position wanted” messages are allowed. Note the hyphen, which is required.
  • MISC: Anything that doesn’t fit a standard category.
  • QUERY: Editing questions not related to grammar and style.
  • SUMMARY: Use this tag when you report information that you have collected off-list in response to a query.
  • TOOLS: Hardware and software, books, desks, pencils, and anything else an editor might need.
  • USAGE: Grammar and style issues. Note that USAGE covers both grammar and style, neither of which is a tag in its own right.
  • ADVERT: If you have a product or service that is of interest to editors but is not provided without charge, you may post a short (10 lines maximum) message and any subscriber is limited to one such message every 90 days.

If you cannot decide between two tags, you may combine them by typing one tag, a space, the second tag, and then a colon. Please do this sparingly and keep in mind that CHAT should never be used with any other tag. Dual tags follow this format:
TAG TAG: Descriptive subject

Special Cautions Regarding the ADVERT Tag

  • Responses to questions that ask for recommendations about a specific product or service are not subject to the ADVERT tag. These would be handled under the TOOLS tag.
  • The ADVERT tag is not intended to be used to promote products and services offered by people who do not subscribe to the list. If you have a new or improved product that will be of interest to editors, a single text-only message (up to 200 characters) may be posted. We strongly recommend that the message be structured as an announcement and that a Web URL be included for those who wish to obtain more information.
  • Products or services that have not changed in any substantial way should not be mentioned again, even 90 days or more after the initial announcement.
  • The ADVERT tag is seen mainly as a way for list members to mention products or services so that other subscribers will be aware of them.
  • If you suspect that the ADVERT message you are about to post might violate either the letter or the spirit of the guidelines, then the message you are about to post probably will violate either the letter or the spirit of the guidelines.
  • If the ADVERT tag is misused, it will be eliminated.

Managing Your Subscription

Copyediting-L is located at the center of the self-service section of the Internet. You are expected to manage your own subscription either via the Web interface, which is largely self-documenting, or by e-mail. When sending a single command to the server, it should be placed on the subject line. Sending multiple-line commands is possible but the message must be entirely plain text and without a signature. An explanation of how to send multiple-line commands is on the IU website.

Because Sympa is a computer program, you must follow the single-command format exactly.

Send your message from the address that is subscribed to the list to "list@list.indiana.edu". Place your command on the subject line of the message (not in the message body). In the command, replace {list} with copyediting-l or copyediting-off-list-l and do not type the braces.

Example: unsubscribe copyediting-off-list-l

  • Subscription status command (list of all lists you are subscribed to):
    which
  • Subscribe command:
    subscribe {list} Firstname Lastname
  • Unsubscribe command:
    unsubscribe {list}
  • Set digest mode command (this is the default):
    set {list} digest
  • Set individual messages mode command:
    set {list} mail
  • Temporarily stop receiving messages (when you’re busy or on vacation) command:
    set {list} nomail
    Existing subscribers who inadvertently unsubscribe instead of using the “nomail” option will go through the new-subscriber process each time they leave and return.
  • Start receiving messages again command:
    set {list} mail
    set {list} digest

Selecting Topics for Individual Messages

If you choose to receive individual messages, you may specify which topics you want to receive. Those who subscribe to the digest will always receive all messages. This does not apply to the off-list because no tags are used there. Selecting topics can be done via the Web interface.

  • After logging in, select Subscriber Options from the left column.
  • Check the topics that you wish to include in your subscription.

Adding Yourself to the Freelancers List

As a service to Copyediting-L subscribers, H. Glenn Court (celery.free@gmail.com) maintains a list of freelancers (part-time and full-time). The list is on the Copyediting-L information website (http://www.copyediting-l.info), and Glenn sends it privately to anyone on request. Keep in mind that there is no control over what happens to the list once it’s posted. You must be a Copyediting-L subscriber to be listed.

To add yourself to the list, send a message to celery.free@gmail.com and use the format specified below. Those who fail to follow the format will not be listed.

Return to Table of Contents

The Archives

The Web interface for each list gives you access to the archives. The archives are closed to non-subscribers, but users should keep in mind that anything posted to the lists is potentially visible to everyone in the world.

The first time you use the Web interface, you will be asked to enter your password. If you haven’t yet set one up, you can do so from that screen. You will need to enter the e-mail address from which you are subscribed and then type a password. The server will send a message to the e-mail address you gave it, and you must reply to that message to confirm that you are who you say you are.

Once you have successfully established a password, the server will offer to write a cookie to your computer. This will save the password on your computer so that you will not need to enter it again from that machine. If you use other computers, you will need to enter the password once from each location to create the cookie.

To search the Archives, select the Search Archives option.
Select Search

Next, type the phrase you're looking for into the Search Archive text box. When specifying the phrase, do not place it inside quotation marks as you might do for a Google search. Before clicking Search, be sure to specify a date range. If you specify no range, the search will include only the most recent few months. Try to narrow the date range, though; selecting all dates may cause the search to time out on the server.

CEL-O, the Off-list List

In 2002, we added CEL-O, the “off-list list,” for use by those who want to discuss non-editing-related topics with other CE-L subscribers. Anyone wishing to subscribe to CEL-O must first subscribe to CE-L. New subscriptions must be approved by a list owner, who will confirm that the request is coming from a CE-L subscriber.

CEL-O runs on the same Sympa software that powers CE-L, so all of the standard list management commands described here apply. No topics are banned on CEL-O, but those who post excessively or who are abusive to others will be removed at the sole discretion of the list owners.

Never cross-post a message to both lists. However, if you want to start a discussion that is vaguely related to editing, you may post the original message to CE-L (and ONLY to CE-L) with a CHAT tag. Place this text at the TOP of the message: Please respond on CEL-O.
