Are there any sub-editors out there?

Gnomon - time to move on

We've had very few cases of sub-editors asking for entries. Come on, people, I was hoping you'd be able to manage one entry every two weeks each. At that rate we'd have the entries piling up, ready to be published. At the moment, Lanzababy, h5ringer and I are doing them all.

(Special thanks, mind you, to those of you who took on projects - you know who you are. You've been working hard).

But the rest of you! It's time to do some sub-editing!

R, if you want to request a specific one, go to ComingUp (which I think doesn't work in Pliny) and choose one from the first list. Let me know and I'll allocate it to you. Otherwise, I'll pick one for you.

I'd like to take on GB's Demotion of Pluto (http://h2g2.com/dna/h2g2/brunel/A87753892) - I should be able to do that fairly soon if no more disasters happen. smiley - smiley

A87753892 Demotion of Pluto --> Bel (just as well that bug prevented me from taking your sub-editor badge away)
A87758185 19th Century View of Fever --> GB

Thanks Bel, we have a little tweak to make (I deleted the original, I will reinstate it, so you can read the PR thread, then I will delete it again later).

I've found the PR thread, thank you. We can search for conversations, you know? smiley - winkeye Only in the old skins, though, I think.

smiley - laugh I thought you'd try clicking the link in Coming Up, which loads the PR entry. I couldn't remember if the deleted entry still contained links, so I reinstated it. smiley - ok

I'm happy to do some. And have always said as much. Simply drop 2 in to my PS and I'll get them done. Once those are done drop another 2. Carry on. If there are problems, I'm sure they can be sorted. There's always post sub editing editing done anyway from all accounts.

I have sub-edited the Fever article, just awaiting feedback from the author before I return it. I have a family emergency going on, but please Gnomon can you send me "What Is Art? Constantin BrĂ¢ncusi's Bird or Kitchen Utensil" to get on with while I am awaiting phonecalls.smiley - cheers
