Hi, I'm confused here. If a book is rejected, why and when does it go back to the Step One page?


If it goes back to the step one page won't it be downloaded by a different validator who will find the same reason for rejecting it? I thought all rejected books just went into the rejected cue.

I totally agree.

I discovered that one of my books had been rejected only by finding it on the download page again. When I looked at the comments, I knew exactly what had gone wrong. But I found that to be a more humiliating way of discovering my mistakes, and would much prefer a letter telling me what happened to the book.

Bob I do know that the books I reject tend to be from people who make the same kinds of misstakes over and over again. If my comments are not forwarded to them, I have no idea how they will learn to submit acceptable scans in future.

I doubt folks are so thin skinned that they prefer no reason at all for a reject to a plausible well written explanation for the reject. Apparently staff for now has decided otherwise. I had no idea this was going on by the way. What a shame!

It would be helpful to validators if an email was sent to the validator who uploaded a rejected book stating that a book was rejected, and giving the reasons for that rejection.

Currently I don't think validators are notified when a book they have uploaded is rejected. Therefore, a validator may think he/she is doing a fine job when, in reality, they are making the same mistake over and over.

I am extremely careful to only reject a book for truly overwhelming reasons. I have rescued many submits since beginning to volunteer for bookshare in 2002. Please know I give extensive explanations to Claire. Please do find out the reason when your book is rejected. I give extensive explanations so folks can learn to do better work. Submitters and validators all work togethere here to put the best work possible into the general collection. (smile)
