If key words ere searchable, that would be very helpful. Then  when someone
is scanning or proofing or wants to know what to do about something, like a
word that's split at the end of the page all one would have to do is search
for "split word," or if one wants to know what fonts should be use for
chapter titles, one ccould search for search for chapter--

Hi Jamie,
 
All that you say is very true.  I agree.  
 
I will also say that the Scanning and Proofreading Manual can be helpful and
might even be sometimes faster than waiting for an answer from someone on
this list.
 
We do recommend that all new volunteers read it.  And we do completely
understand why they don't.  It's a huge thing, and scattered all over the
wiki, and we're trying to fix both issues.  
 
So, Jamie, you're right on, but the manual isn't completely useless either.
 
Just saying.
 
Nobody's mad at you, Jamie.
 
Mayrie

Jackie, look under "my account" and it will tell you how many credits you
have.

And questions are great. How else do you learn if you don't ask questions?

That's my opinion anyway. I know others will say "read the manual". Let me
tell you, if I were a new volunteer and I had to "read the manual" for all
the answers, I'd probably not volunteer. I know the manual is better than it
used to be but sometimes it's vague or confusing or the answer isn't there
written out in black and white.

I'll shut up now before I offend somebody.
