EAE - Editors


[#Page Bottom]


As editors, we want to maintain the originality, but help with spelling, punctuation, grammatical and so forth errors. Therefore, to be an editor, you must know the English language and how it is properly used, well.

During the editing process, the editor(s) are to:
- Note the page versions used during the editing process from start to finish.
- During editing, indicate 'Edit in progress' next to "status" OR 'Finished', when the editing is done.

After the editing is finished, the story or poem can be taken off the Editing Assistance - Elftown page only, [as long as the title, author, and editor(s) remain and the location of editing with the page versions are noted].


Still want to be an editor? Just add your name below with a link to an example of your writing.

1 - [Linderel] - L'esprit de l'escalier
2 - [Dark Side of the Moon] - The Unicorn and the Wizardess
3 - [*Phoenix*] - April's Stories

2008-11-29 [Linderel]: Because she's the founder. ;)

2008-11-29 [*Phoenix*]: someone I had a sneaking suspicion that was the case ^-^

2008-12-01 [Artsieladie]: Well, I read your story, "You Can Fly". I was impressed with the lack of errors. So, I think, you would be a good editor. I'm for it, but I would like to know what [Linderel] thinks, too. As far as [Dark Side of the Moon]: I've seen several of your works dear. I know you are up for being an editor. :D

[*Phoenix*] and [Dark Side of the Moon], I'll add you as editors. Just give me the 'nod'. :D

[ Correction: ] I already added [Dark Side of the Moon], but I didn't remember that I had! Good grief! My head is a sieve! Not like..IS! <..< O..O :P

2008-12-02 [Dark Side of the Moon]: *nods* I'm a little confuzzled still on how this is supposed to work though. Do you send a link to someone's writing that needs to be edited or do we just pick one from a list? Sorry. I should probably read the darn page and find out for myself. :P

2008-12-02 [Artsieladie]: Something really weird is going on with my comments here! There's a lot of weird stuff going on around here on ET for me lately! Argh! :/ No one would likely believe it, even if I provided the proof I have! Landsakes!

2008-12-02 [Artsieladie]: Well, [Dark Side of the Moon], I don't think you are confused. This is an aspect that I figured could be worked out when more editors came aboard. This wiki has been pretty dormant for awhile. I'm always open for suggestions and I like to have the input of others. I'm thinking of a couple different options and I'll just throw them out here. Anyone else have some? Throw yours out as well, and we can all figure out what will work the best for all of us.

My 2 ideas: We can take turns. For instance, if [Linderel] edits piece # 9, then the next piecs #10 would be yours, [Dark Side of the Moon], to edit?
We can pick the pieces we would like to edit? The problem with this idea, I think, though, would be, there might be some pieces that no one wants to edit or a piece that everyone wants to edit.

Thoughts anyone? ;)

2008-12-02 [Dark Side of the Moon]: hm, that does throw a monkey in the wrench doesn't it? What if you drew names from a hat and just assign us to them that way?

2008-12-02 [Artsieladie]: *nods* Or we could use the D:20 feature?

2008-12-02 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I have no idea how that works. Is there a link that explains it?

2008-12-02 [Artsieladie]: It's very simple. It simulates a 20 sided die. Every wiki page version shows a number from 1 - 20. This page version shows D:20 17 next to the number of watchers. In other words, if you threw a 20 sided die, each time you threw it, you would see a number from 1 - 20, sometimes the number would repeat, but it's more likely that you would get a different number. When you view different page versions, think of it as throwing the die, each time you view a different page version. :P

2008-12-02 [Dark Side of the Moon]: okay, I think I understand. That sounds like a good idea also. What say the others?

2008-12-02 [Linderel]: All fine to me. :3
I'm going to get a D20 tattoo one day... *sidetracks*

2008-12-03 [*Phoenix*]: I'd love to be added!

whatever works is fine with me. I was pretty confused too!

you should put right above everyone that you're the head honcho, [Artsieladie].

2008-12-03 [Artsieladie]: Oh, [Captain Rachel Black] has Ink Me!. Maybe she could design you a D:20 tattoo? lol

Ok, I know how the D:20 works, but I just can't quite think of how to apply it here. My mind is very distracted at the moment, because I just found out that I'm being stalked online and by whom and it's quite upsetting. 

2008-12-03 [Linderel]: Pffft, I design my own tattoos.

2008-12-03 [Artsieladie]: Oh, ok. ;)

2008-12-07 [*Phoenix*]: I'm sorry you're being stalked, [Artsieladie]......

2008-12-09 [Artsieladie]: Thanks, but it's all ok now. :) Great! I'll add your name as an editor then. Welcome aboard! :)

hehe 'Head honcho'... it's been awhile since I've heard that title. I may have set this up, but I consider everyone equals. ;)

2008-12-22 [*Phoenix*]: oh but you are the head honcho :D

2009-01-25 [Artsieladie]: Eh, no head honcho. Just an ordinary honcho. ;P

2009-01-25 [*Phoenix*]: lol.....what about "headless Honcho"?
