[bksvol-discuss] Re: trouble checking out a book sort of

Let me add something. If you click the link to sort by quality the first titles that appear will be the ones with the lowest quality score and if you click it again you will see the ones with the highest quality score. You should be aware, though, that the quality score is automatically generated by a computer algorithm and if a book has a low quality score it might very well just have a lot of proper names or technical jargon. I am also not sure how precise this is. I have noticed that on different visits to the checkout list some of the titles in that quality sort appear in slightly different positions and I have also noticed that a lot of those titles also seem to group together according to the dates in which they were submitted. Personally, I would recommend that you sort by date added in ascending order when you are trying to choose a book to proofread. For one thing, those blocks of titles being held for new volunteers will then be toward the back of the list and for another thing, if a title has been waiting for a long time it would seem to me that it should have something done with it, whether it is added to the collection or rejected, in order to keep things moving along.

"People think they have taken quite an extraordinarily bold step forward when they have rid themselves of belief in hereditary monarchy and swear by the democratic republic. In reality, however, the state is nothing but a machine for the oppression of one class by another, and indeed in the democratic republic no less than in the monarchy." - Friedrich Engels
