There REALLY seem to be a lot of single editors out there. Will there be a way for us to work even if we're not able to form a group? Also, even though we all passed, shouldn't there be a way to further stratify the skill levels? With so many of us available, I think it would be a better business practice if we had some avenue to showcase our abilities for the select few (ie. translators) to allow them to choose better candidates. If groups are formed simply based on board postings, a lot of time may be lost if team members don't have what it takes to complete a project. I say this because obviously I want to work, but also in reading some of the postings, I see the same problems highlighted that frustrate me as a reader. I'm referring to poor word choices, poor grammar, obvious typos and spelling errors. I'm sure some of this is just due to the casualness of the conversations here, but if someone consistently forgets to capitalize after a period or use "there" when they mean "their" when writing for potential coworkers, what kind of mistakes are likely to show up in their editing work? I know this sounds picky, but isn't that part of being an editor?
I'm excited about the potential of this project and would like the opportunity to help make it a success. I look forward to learning more as we progress.
