Julie We are all constantly learning, and that goes for almost everything in life, not just book scanning and validating. I try keeping ego out of the equation so I don't fret over what a book's final rating ends up being. They generally end up excellent as I tend to indicate, but if a validator arbitrarily changes it, so what! It's one person's opinion which hardly is going to matter in the grand scheme of things. I know I put my best effort into it, and that's all I can do. And as for rejections, which Lissi asked about, I have had only one in 40 plus submissions -- and that was because 2 individuals happened to submit the the saame book at the same time and the arbitrary choice was to reject mine as it got through the queue slower. I wouldn't submit something I believed not to be of good enough quality for the collection, and have stopped scanning several books because of that. Hence, if I got a rejection without input as to why, I'd take that as an arbitrary individual decision and after relooking at the book, I'd likely just submit it again.
