Speaking of things being misspelled, whoever downloads
ot is validating Whiskey and Water needs to change the

In "The Brat" the entire book was excellent, except
for the first name of
the author being misspelled in the title page.  This
may have been a case
of a submittor being underconfident of his/her
scanning prowess.

Unfortunately the Bookshare engine does not perform
an automated quality
rating at submission time,  so the initial rating
remains purely a matter
of the submitter's opinion.


I hope that eventually the submission system will
include a quality
assessment.  Furthermore,  it may be useful to add
the value "I don't
know" in the initial submission panel's quality
radio button.

[bksvol-discuss] Re: fair books I rejected are back
on step 1 -- The Brat
was unfairly 'faired'






I agree that one needs to look at them, check them
out. I've taken some in which the first few pages
were
pretty bad and I was thinking of rejecting them but
then the book started to be quite
problem-free--until
the last few pages. grin So fixing it wasn't bad.
