Some people just want the credit and do the bare minimum to get that credit. I 
do think most, if not all, of us here are beyond that, but there are some 
validators who don't even do a spell check. That can be obvious with some of 
the books in the collection. A lot of us do want better than that, and a lot of 
us care more about the quality than the credit, but there are some things that 
would have been easy to spot if the validator would have done a little more 
than the minimum. I've seen that in some of the books I've read. Take care.

  Forgive my impertinence, but why would someone validate a book if they really 
don't care?  Seems that if one is willing to volunteer to take on that kind of 
work, it should be because they want the books on the site to be the best

    Hi, Tom. I can understand what you're saying about this, but sometimes, if 
books are poorly done, really long or anything like that, it might take longer 
to get them done. Some validators are perfectionists and want their books to be 
as good as they can make them. Others just do the bare minimum and let it go at 
that. Some books would be rejected if a validator who really cared about that 
particular book couldn't keep it until it was worthy of putting up and as good 
as it could be made. This might not be an issue for some, but for other books, 
they may be rare or something that most people might not think about 
rescanning, so that book might not ever make it to the site if that happens. 
These are all just thoughts out loud and probably at least some reasons for why 
there is no limit. take care.

      Gerald, A second thought, Has Bookshare ever decided to limet the number 
of edit renewals allowed?  It would seem that after a  reasonable period, the 
book should be returned to the step-one Q.  Tom

        Janice has said that it's been a bit of a mad house around there since 
back in December due to anual end of the year tasks and getting things 
backunder control since the holidays.  Once things calm down a bit I would 
imagine that Gustavo will whittle down the Awaiting Admin Approval queue.  As 
for if he ever gets to the bottom, I believe he did that two or three times 
last year and ended up sending out a message that he had nothing to approve.

        Hi Everyone, been laying low for a while.  But I have a question, do 
you think Gustavo will ever get to the bottom of the administrative Q?  Still 
have books sitting there from September, and my Dreamland series by Dale Brown 
has-never been found apparently, lost, "lost beneath the streets of Boston," 
their fate never to be learned, as the song goes.  The answers I get are vague, 
that the books are out being edited, since May or June?  Tom
