[bksvol-discuss] Re: where is my book to proofread, did someone else get it and the credit?

Hi, Ann, you guessed right. I am glad it was a short book, but I didn't get volunteer feedback until after ten at night, and apparently, the file was grabbed in the wee hours of March. I really don't think this is fair but at least the book was short. Thanks for your note and for understanding. Have a blessed day. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ann Parsons" <akp@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi all,

I'm not clear as to what you are saying here. If you scanned and submitted the book, then you will get credit for it, no matter who proofreads it, when it gets added to the collection. If you made an effort to get the pages right, then that work will not be lost, unless the proofreader messes it up somehow. You can't submit a book for proofreading and then proofread it yourself, so I am confused by your statement that you submitted a book for proofreading and then it got taken from you.

If, on the other hand, you are saying that you were in the process of proofreading a book and it expired, then someone else took it, then unless that person indicates that you should receive credit for proofreading it in the comments section, you will not get credit for it. By default, the person who uploads the book to the Admin Queue gets the credit for proofreading it.


Hmmm, I think I can clarify this one, Evan. Her book was returned to the checkout page for further editing, and she didn't catch the file before somebody else downloaded it first. I don't know if anything can be done about it, but it may be a good idea for the admin folks to inquire of the proofer if he or she would like to make the changes or give the book out as a "new" checkout. I guess there's nothing she can do now except choose another book or try to get a hold of Volunteer 50. Volunteer 50 seems to be the guilty party who snapped up the book. <sigh> Es la vida I guess.

I sure hope admin can do something. In these economic times something that used to be shrugged off is now kinda important.
