Some ideas for improving the site come up repeatedly. Now that a volunteer co-ordinator can speak to both volunteers and staff, is a report from engineering possible occasionally, say two or three times a year?
Sorry for the misspelling in my last message. Let me repeat the idea with better spelling.I suggest the number or alias method for volunteers to stay anonymous while providing users and volunteers with a way of knowing something about the submitter and validator of a book.
I have brought up this alias idea for about eighteen months now. Several people have also asked for changes to the site.The ones i remember include a way for the bookshare tool to come back with an estimate of book quality at time of submit rather than letting the user just decide. I realize dialect, foreign words and so on can throw off this estimate. The submitter would be free to over-ride it but it would give some percentage accuracy rating. The idea is similar to what now happens when a validator uploads a book and the tool guesses at accuracy.
