Hi all. If someone has lots of time and patience, I have an opportunity for someone to get some extra credit. I think it would qualify as submission credit but someone correct me if I'm wrong. Here's the deal. I am currently validating The Greek Coffin Mystery by Ellery Queen. The book is complete and for the most part the scan is fine. However, there are lots of junk characters and generally annoying scanning errors. I honestly don't feel like fixing all of them. I will fix some, like "jn" for in, "tp" for to, "bis" for his, etc. Technically no spell checking is required for a book to be considered validated. So, once it hits the new books page, some mystery fan can grab it and fix all the errors. Since I think this would count as a new submission, they would get the usual submit credit. Since I didn't scan it and am only the validator, I only get the validation credit, so someone will get a good deal out of this. Frankly for only 50 cents it isn't worth my time to bother trying to fix the many scanning errors. I am planning to mark the quality as good. If anyone is interested, watch the new books page for it. It should show up soon hopefully. I will probably upload it in a few hours so it should show up in a few days. I have an Agatha Christie novel to upload also in excellent quality.
