Ausnahmsweise, wie ├╝blich (Consistently inconsistent)

Hi,

I hope I haven't bugged you too much with my Julian calendar ramblings on that other thread.

I noticed that you are a scout. I only became a researcher last week and posted my first guide entry a couple of days ago. I think I did all the right things to get it noticed and up for review. I haven't got any responses. It's http://www/h2g2.com/A506756
Have I done everything right? Am I just too impatient?

Thanks.

Hi Aw▄ (hehe, I've got it on the keyboard :-) ) You may want to read this one... http://www.h2g2.com/A487253, or this threat: http://www.h2g2.com/F55683?thread=97144 after all, reviewing is a voluntary thing, just like anything else around here!

Thanks, I'll study those.

Sorry for the double postings. I keep getting timeouts and can't tell if it committed (looks like it did) before it got back to me.

That's quite common around here, and I just started a thread on that: http://www.h2g2.com/F55683?thread=97706... You /can/ avoid double postings: the "Post Message" button does work immediately, all the rest of the time (until timeout) is consumed by the h2g2 server, so you could as well leave it and cancel the download of an updated conversation. To prove that, copy (right click) the "Click here to return to the Conversation without saying anything" link on the bottom of an Edit screen into /another/ browser window and press "Go" -- bingo!

Ausnahmsweise wie Ueblich, please be patient. It is not uncommon for an article to take up to three months from the time of posting it at Peer Review to acceptance (or not). Only six yarns a day are recommended by Scouts. Each individual Scout gets to pick three per month.

Do feel free to comment on other people's work on the Peer Review threads. I have found that people comment on my stuff if I comment on theirs.

Hope that helps. Loony smiley - bigeyes

Thanks - that puts things in perspective. I have commented on a few other entries. I'll make a habbit of doing that.



I have lots of ideas for new entries too.

Hash House Harriers
COM / CORBA wars
Bruce Peninsula

I'm having fun too, which is the main thing.

That's exactly it! And as I see it, going through PR and commenting after looking around ones brain or the web for some background does widen one's background in return smiley - smiley

err, Loony, I just went out for the PR threat on your Asthma entry which you say 'is gathering dust on the Peer Review page' -- I failed to locate it there! Anyway, it may have been included? superceded? by the marathon entry Asthma http://www.h2g2.com/A408818 from the h2g2 Med Team...

At http://www.h2g2.com/F48874?thread=74607&skip=0&show=20 you will find my Asthma yarn. An explanation on why it should be picked on its own merits is discussed in the forum.

oops. Searching for Axxxxx through all conversations didn't bring it up, and I was looking for 'Asthma' in the header. Too sorry I'm not a scout with a cartridge left to spend smiley - sadface

AwU, I have posted some interesting stuff about the Morgan at http://www.h2g2.com/A508583

It first appeared last week in England's Daily Express newspaper. I saw it in the International edition - the International Express. You may be able to incorporate some of it in your yarn by rewriting it in your own words or by quoting it - with appropriate credits

Thanks Loonytunes...
I skimmed it really quickly. I like the style. They can't seem to agree on the numbers. The factory web site says 12 "old" cars and 200/year of the Aero.
50,000 pounds translates to over $100,00 CDN, and I don't even know if the Beers ( the family that imports them ) can get them licensed here.

(I see you are in NZ. I'm in Canada. I hear there are lots of well preserved British cars in New Zealand.)

Up until the late 70s virtually the only cars available in NZ were sourced, in kitset form, (they were assembled in NZ using some NZ parts, tyres etc) from Britain and Europe - apart from Fords and Holdens (An Aussie company now owned by GM, the cars are similar to Chevrelots) from Australia.

The industry was deregulated in the 80s which led to a flood of Jap crap entering the market. NZ is one of the few countries they allows unlimited imports of used Japanese vehicles. (Nice and cheap)

Of course, in the main, a used Jap car is of better quality than a used Brit car (rust) and the new Jap cars are far superior so the NZ car fleet, in effect, has been upgraded.

As a side affect of these changes, many older men have lovingly restored some of the better examples of the Pom (Brit) marquees.
