After I finish earning my credits for the year, I will take this harder material to validate. I think that the poorer scans should automatically get rejected and not be allowed to stay on step one. I work extremely hard on my scans and I don't see why other people can at least get them into good condition. Am I asking to much of people? However, I do understand the fact that some books have poor print quality and are not easy to scan. Therefore, all I am asking is that people try a little harder to clean up their books before they submit them so that their validators don't have to work so hard on the books. In this way, validators will be able to speed up the process of getting more books into the Bookshare collection. To do this, I suggest that people not scan books that have poor print quality unless they have an excellent scanner. I speak from experience. Thanks!

If I get them up to where I need them, I will take some harder material. Thanks.

Some are fiction and other nonfiction works. Some submitters are submitting books which lack page breaks. Bookshare cannot accept these. Other submitters are submitting poor quality or "raw scans". They seem to think that validators will either put in page breaks for them or clean up their work. Perhaps some of you want to take on this class of books. What is the setting in what software which produces submits without page breaks? By the way, I also notice most of these submitters do not have email addresses with the submits. E.
