Editing - *Volunteers sign up*
« on: April 07, 2010, 12:00:21 PM »
Matt and I have been going over a couple of things, more precisely how to streamline this process and get a thorough job done without taxing anyone too much.

With that in mind, I have been cruelly chopping up Bj°rn's work into the individual chapters, removing pictures to a separate folder, and changing it to a single column. It is these text-only chapters, which I am seeking dedicated people to look at.

Quite a few people expressed an interest. But currently we just need four people - one for each of the four chapters. The primary objective at present is to make sure rules work, the various text-passages and tables make sense and that any typo's that may appear are cleaned up:


Chapter 1: Introduction - 8 pages of text: Bobby

Chapter 2: Domains - 35 pages of text: Niels

Chapter 3: Regency - 14 pages of text: Libor

Chapter 4: The Domain turn - 34 pages of text: Alan

*IF* you are interested in helping out, reply to this post with both your preferred wish as well as an email-addy (for invitations to the editing-folder in Dropbox). I'll make sure that some rough editing guidelines are then presented to you (so we have 1 way of doing things, instead of 8 ), and we'll then agree on a temporary deadline for you (obviously it takes longer to go through 34 pages, than 8 ). I am aware that this is a volunteer-only job, and that some may balk at the notion of an imposed deadline, but we still need a structure to abide by - or risk everything flopping aimlessly around like a fish on dry land.  ;)

Looking forward to hearing from you - you are all my heroes!

- Thorsten

Awesome. Perhaps you won't mind taking one of the bigger ones then? I've sent an invite and will put you down for Chapter 2. If you'd rather do something else, nows the time to say so :)

Duly noted. That leaves only a "little" 8-page-piece left.

Thanks,

If any of you need any advice/help in regards to dropbox, please say so. I've recently done a step-by-step article on the very subject (in danish), which is why I confess my love for the software. I never would have learned about it otherwise.

Out of love of the game and a love of challenge, I would undertake the arduous task of the introduction.   ;)

Introductions are VERY important, afterall:

Doctrines must take their beginnings from that of the matters of which they treat.

And therefore, the introduction (beginning) sets the tone for all things that follow it...

Fortunately, the most important text of all time is also in good condition already.   ;D  I made a couple nit-picky changes regarding grammar, but nothing else.  Glad to be of service, and let me know if/when you need something else.

I'm available as well. Evening shifts at work mean I have 10 hrs of mind numbing boredom ahead of me.
