DP Official Documentation talk:Proofreading/P2 Mentoring

A few questions:

1. Shouldn't Juliet S., as the person who grants mentoring status, be replaced with susanskinner (or the latter added)?

2. Provide some advice on whether the proofer should move on to EASY projects or do a few more BEGINNERS pages. This decision rests on how many pages you have mentored for a particular proofer, which mark-ups were in the pages and how well they were tackled.

mark-ups? I thought mark-up referred to the codes of the formatters, such as <b>, <i>, <sc> etc....

3. This page could use some step-by-step info for new mentors, e.g., here is stuff I pulled from the forums:

"When you proof BEGIN projects in P2, the pages are given to you in order of P1 proofer name, instead of the usual page number order. This means that you should get all of one newbie's pages in a row. If someone else is proofing at the same time, they might pick up some of the pages, so if you like, you can use the refresh button on your browser to check out all of the pages for a newbie and then work on them through the "Just My Pages" link on the project page."

"the For Mentors Only page showing the list of proofers in the BEGIN projects in alphabetical order, and how many pages they've proofed in a given project" - I had no idea they were listed in alphabetical order and served up that way

"pulling pages via Refresh" - took me a while to figure that one out.

"Just a reminder to our newer mentors, that we need to work on the oldest one first." - but there's no instructions on how to get the oldest ones first.

4. The link to the bgalbrecht mentor template page is no longer working, which is very disappointing because I've found it very useful in the past. Is there any way to fix this? ~ Shakespearette 16:14, 6 December 2012 (PST)

Some answers

  1. I've added me as a contact as well, thanks for pointing that out!
  2. I've changed the text of the section that you mention to "This decision rests on how many pages you have mentored for a particular proofer, what corrections needed made to the OCR text on those pages and how well they were tackled." Does that seem better?

Yes, of course! "mark-ups" was a bit confusing. -- Novartza 16:57, 28 June 2006 (PDT)
