Cindy I have a couple of books I have renewed over and over again because they take a lot of work to get into the form I want. I understand about that kind of issue.
What concerns me is 1. the sheer quantity of books on step 1,2. the number of fair or poor books on step 1 which also may have been there a long time, 3. the immense amount of wasted validator time taking a book, getting frustrated and releasing it 4. the lack of tools validators can use to make better use of time. Such tools might include a way of leaving info about a book as notes when returning it to step 1 and the ability to send a book back to step 1 which includes work a validator has done.
These requests are ones validators have now been making to staff for over a year. There are too few of us. Many more start validating, get frustrated and quit. Better tools are absolutely necessary. My time as a validator is valuable. So is yours.
