Maybe some scanners could take a break from submitting and validate a few?

Heya Jake,

I know Carrie does a lot for the list and I have validated a couple of her 
scans. Both excellentJ

I agree with what you are saying Jake. IF we could get the list down to 200 
to 250 it would make browsing and selecting books to validate easier. Now 
the newest books or the books that are put back on step one are at the top. 
The first 100 get browsed and selected while those at the bottom of the list 

But the nice thing is we keep growing the collection and the admin queue is 
well under 100 these daysJ

I read/validated a book called the Little Ice Age a while back and this 
morning on the bus had a wonderful discussion with a former storm chaser and 

Katie Hill

Miracles happen not in opposition to Nature, but in opposition to

what we know of Nature.

AHH! Yikes, we want to shrink it though. *grin*

It might be best to hold off on the bulk scanning until we can get this list 
down to a better, more manageable number like 250, rather than the 430 it is 

That would have the added benefit of us working on older books that have 
been around for a while, and, if that is done, then the turn around time for 
books overall should improve.

Thoughts? Other ideas?


PS. In no way does this message want to say we don't appreciate all you do 
for us Carrie!
