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.
