[VOL 3] Editorial Team
« on: September 12, 2010, 04:20:47 PM »
The Mangaraiders anthology is a collaboration project involving many members and resulting of books containing more than 80 pages.

The anthology conception contain a large hidden part which concern the technical formating of the pages.
It means file properties checking, grammar checking, page numbering, file renaming, files formating , printer's dialogue etc : lots of tasks which need time and efforts.

I took responsability of those tasks for the last anthologies but won't be able to do all of them anymore.

I will need help for:

1. grammar checking:  read all pages and notify the author if any grammar mistake is found. Legomaestro

2. files checking: verify that the pages we receive correspond to the file settings we need. Sai

3. pages numbering/file renaming: number all pages and rename them  :  AnimeDoodler

We will add details in the following days if we need more volunteers.

Don't forget that several members can propose their help for a  same task. ^^

Thanks in advance to our future Editorial Team!

well if any extra help will be needed i guess i can pitch in with grammar and file checking. i already know how to do this stuff from working with the WA anyways and there might not be anyone around here with a better knowledge of grammar than me.

Lemme get this straight: British or American English? I don't think I will be able to participate, but I'm curious.
Bros with Legomaestro since 2010. I think.

I went to the doctor yesterday. T_______________________T

I began to feel pain in my right hand one month ago. Thinking it was school papers corrections , I didn't give to much attention to it. I believed it was nothing holidays couldn't cure.
But the pain went up to the point I couldn't use my right hand without feeling more and more pain. Holding a fork, using a pc mouse or writing became impossible.  :push:

The doctor confirmed my impressions: I have overused my right hand with papers corrections, drawing and pc use: the radius bone, ligaments etc are hurt. :cop:
Result: I have a treatment and orders to take it easy with my hand, meaning  less pc  /drawings for a moment.

Consequences: Typing using left hand is possible but fixing the MGR anthologies files like that is NOT .

I need one or several volunteers to check/fix all MGR anthology files using Gimp or Photoshop.
:revolver: :shotgun:
It is a simple but repetitive task which consists in verifying that each page corresponds to the printers settings.

PM me and post here if you can help me!

Ah sorry about that. Get well soon.

Just so you know I'm still 100% for grammar checking and stuff, so don't worry in that department. Let's hope more sign up to help.

When's the next anthology due?

Kite I think you can do the formatting thing and help members who are new to Anthology by assisting them. :)

Maybe it will be little hard this formatting thing first but its easy after trying several times.

Formatting... As in changing drawings from jpg/png to [???]. Shouldn't be a problem but I doubt it's easier if I do it.
Anyway, I can do it of course. No problem.
