Hi, E. I hate sending "I agree" messages, but ... I agree. <smiles>Regarding point 2, I'm wondering if there's been more consideration by the powers that be to block the submission of the fair books? This would help us immensely and might motivate those submitters to clean up their scans a bit.
As for your last point: Yes! Yes! And Yes! I can see how a team of validators could whip a book into shape in much less time than one or two people downloading the book and then not renewing it. Submitters do something similar with much success, and I don't see why validators can't do this, either.

Cindy I have a couple of books I have renewed over and over again because they take a lot of work to get into the form I want. I understand about that kind of issue.What concerns me is 1. the sheer quantity of books on step 1,2. the number of fair or poor books on step 1 which also may have been there a long time, 3. the immense amount of wasted validator time taking a book, getting frustrated and releasing it 4. the lack of tools validators can use to make better use of time. Such tools might include a way of leaving info about a book as notes when returning it to step 1 and the ability to send a book back to step 1 which includes work a validator has done.These requests are ones validators have now been making to staff for over a year. There are too few of us. Many more start validating, get frustrated and quit. Better tools are absolutely necessary. My time as a validator is valuable. So is yours.E.
