[bksvol-discuss] Re: Pay It Forward

Those of you who submitted duplicate copies, did anyone check which book was of 
better quality?

  I couldn't agree with you more and it was a lot more of your time wasted than 
mine. It seems to me that Bookshare has to have a system whereby a book is 
stopped at the submission point if someone else has already checked the scanit 
link on the wish list. When it happened to me back before there was a scanit 
link, I, like you, told Bookshare that if it happened again I would no longer 
be scanning because I had alerted Marissa and the volunteer e-mail list and 
didn't know what else I could have done. For those of us who put a lot of work 
into these books it simply isn'tfair.

    Jill and Volunteer List,
    I checked the scan it link, looked on all lists and posted on this list. I 
checked to see if it was in the collection but didn't see it.
    This is not the first time I scanned a book that was already scanned and in 
the system somewhere. Checking the "Scan it" link is a waste of time. Until 
Bookshare comes up with a better system I will no longer waste my time scanning 
books from the wish list.
    On the volunteer page you should be able to enter a book title and find out 
if the book is in the collection, on the download page, waiting for admin. 
approval, of being scanned by someone else.
    Jill I'm sorry for wasting you time.

      Jim, The book was already in the collection. Did you check the scan it 
link on the Bookshare wish list before scanning the book? I'm sorry we both 
wasted our time.

        Hi Everyone,
        My submission of Pay It Forward was rejected without an comment as to 
what was wrong or missing with it. If the person is on this list I would like 
an email explaining what needs to be corrected.
