Is there a place where we can enter comments if we take a book for
validation, then kick it back for someone else, perhaps, because of stuff
like sidebars, etc?

I worked on the book Harem for two weeks, cleaned up the scanning, got rid
of a bunch of scanner garbage, but it didn't get accepted because it has
three hundred and something pages when it's only "supposed" to have 187
pages.  I couldn't figure out where the "real" page breaks were supposed to
be, so I submitted it for publication after I validated it.  It's totally
readable other then the page thing.  The blank pages I found were numbered,
leading me to leave them intact, as the volunteer manual says to, to keep
page numbering intact.  I looked at a couple other books today and one had a
semi intact title page.. I wonder if things sitting on the step one list are
like this a lot-validaters find problems and just release it back hoping
someone else can/will fix them?  If we had a coment box when we release a
book, it would help the next validater.  Or am I missing something?

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] More books lingering on download list

Book #1 was submitted in March of 2008.
Book #2 was submitted in Oct. 2007. According to Carrie it is missing and
two pages and has several that are garbled, probably scanned upset down.
Someone should look at it and if you don't want to validate it, reject it.
I have 5 downloads already and so can't. It's rated only Fair and the
submitter was also the validator, so it was returned. Book #3 was submitted
in March and nobody's tried it. It's rated Good; maybe the submitter is
being modest. It's a Fourth Godfather saga book, so if any of you aren't
afraid of Adult-rated books (for sex? violence?) and liked the Godfather
books and/or movies, have a go.

March is 6  months ago, more or less. What should be considered "lingering."
How long?  Anyone who wants to can start at the bottom and check submission
date of a book that interests you. I was taking books that had been on the
list for more than 6 months but that was when we had no limit and then I was
chastised for having so many and told I should release them so others could
take them if they wanted to. Eventually some were taken,perhaps rejected--I
don't know--and some were still on the download list wh en I was able to
take a new book, so I took them then.
