Could you release these for the sub-editor please?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A650008 Heracles

http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A649910 Achilles

http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A657524 Prometheus

There are others on their way but they need polishing first.

Hi Dastardly,

The standard procedure is that the project is completed before the Sub gets going on it - mostly because once the entries are passed to the Sub, the author can't edit them themselves any more.

There are nearly always things that the author wants to re-arrange and edit as it's being written, so it's generally best to wait until you're quite positive that nothing more will need to be changed. It also means that we can process everything at once. smiley - smiley

By the way, I'll probably be shutting the University mailing list down because it's not used anymore; there have been reports of wolf-weeds in there... smiley - smiley

I see.

Erm...the six week deadline is coming up and I'm not done yet. One of my helpers was only recruited today, two days before it's all supposed to be finished, and there's real life getting in the way, and the harvest this year was awful, and I have to feed my family on burnt porridge...smiley - winkeye

Can I have an extra couple of weeks? Pleeeease?

How's this project coming along? smiley - smiley

One of the entries - A820559 - was submitted to Peer Review a few days ago by the original author, so I explained that it is part of this University Project, and asked for it to be removed from PR. Are these project's entries likely to become Edited soon?

We do have them in-house now, but because we spent some time chasing up a lot of projects, we now have such a huge queue of them that we can't put a date on it at the moment.

We are working through projects steadily though. smiley - ok
