Thanks for taking the time to do that, Zelmo. Things sound quite rosy. I'm quite glad to see

"Edited Entries, although collaborated on by a number of people, are written primarily by one person – it's their tone of voice and take on the world. Of course, there's an established style, but the fact that our Entries are 'authored' solely, not written by committee – and therefore don't have the personality squeezed out of them" - and that, in business terms, the BBC wants to emphasise that.

What a good start to the week smiley - smiley

Thanks Vip for interviewing Zelmo - and thanks to Zelmo for the thoughtful and informative replies.

The part that I was most pleased to read has been highlighted by KB in post 1 - I am very glad to hear Zelmo say

>>>But the real selling point of h2g2, I think, is the fact that Edited Entries, although collaborated on by a number of people, are written primarily by one person – it's their tone of voice and take on the world.
