just wanted to drop this here, it’s a basic guideline for editing “open entries,” which are basically stub entries that will be featured on homepage from time to time and any user can participate in the editing process if they can start right away.
Now that we’’ve successfully carried out our first open entry workshop (see: courage wolf / thanks to Alex, Karath and Gingersnapp), you can expect there will be more on a regular basis:
1. The goal is to collaborate on “abandoned” entries towards confirmation in a short period of time. The message displayed in bold at the very top of an open entry should be left alone, but anything below the line is fair game. Speed & accuracy is the name of the game.
2. This may be redundant for many, but please respect fellow editor’s edits. You can use the comments section of this entry to coordinate research efforts. Before you save edit, please refresh the entry page to make sure you don’t overwrite previous edits!
3. Editorship will be granted to the first three requesters with good reasons for consideration. So please specify what you would like to research or write about in your request.
4. For the sake of efficiency, editorship status will be reviewed every 12 hours (since the editorship has been first granted) and editors without any significant contribution will be cycled out.
