Sub-Editor Request – Explore the View Askewniverse

I have written an entry on the View Askewniverse (A87948445) however it may be too long as it is and be better off being split into an Eight Entry project:

1 – Introduction & overview including Super Groovy Cartoon Movie
(potentially including Flea Market Rescue of A457724 )
2 – Clerks
3 – Mallrats
4 – Chasing Amy
5 – Dogma
6 - Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back
7 - Clerks II
8 – Jay & Silent Bob Reboot.

Any subs interested?

Hello!

Yes, I see the Entry as it is is more than 10,000 words, so I like your idea of splitting it into an Eight-Entry University Project smiley - ok

However, it's not something I could take on, sorry, as I've glanced at bits of the Askewniverse and my eyes don't like it...

I hope someone else comes along soon smiley - goodluck

If necessary, I had a thought that it might work more quickly if you built the project page and submitted it to Peer Review yourself, so that Peer Reviewers could make suggestions and you could make the changes, then the Editors could sub the Project after it has been reviewed smiley - ok

I agree to give this a thorough checking out in Peer Review, or even now if you want.

I spotted a Lord of the Rings reference - are there LR references in all the films?

Bad news I'm afraid – only 'Clerks II' contains 'The Lord of the Rings' references.

While I am always grateful for your thorough read-throughs, if I'm going to divide this entry into eight, which is what I'm leaning towards, the eight component parts may well change a bit. While it is unlikely anything will be deleted if this entry becomes split up, sections are more likely to expand and/or be rephrased. So I'd probably recommend delaying the thorough read through at this moment in time until the entry's/entries' final form is settled on.

Hi BB, as there's only me, Sasha and yourself currently doing the subbings at the moment, I'm afraid you're out of luck. I can't take on anything h2g2-wise as I'm so busy at work and RL, my online time is severely limited.

Good luck with creating the components, <BB< and I look forward to seeing the project appear in Peer Review in due course smiley - goodluck

That's fair enough, and pretty much the answer I was expecting, however it doesn't hurt to explore all available options. I'll probably dip the all-in-one version into Peer Review to see if other people agree with the dividing idea and, assuming they do, I'll put all the entries one-by-one through Peer Review the normal way. (Though if no-one wants to sub them, they'll take a while to get to the front page).

I think that there shouldn't be a problem getting them subbed if they are already perfect.

They aren't at the moment, but will be after Peer Review.
