I'd noticed I had found my way behind the scenes, and now you tell me I'm supposed to be working smiley - winkeye

It's alright - I'm only doing a little more here and there, helping out with a thing or two, and wearing a Chief Scout hat.

Although it is rather tempting to run round maniacally, shouting, 'h2g2 is all mine! Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!'

Having a great birthday?

Hello

O – it's been a while since I've popped by over here and said hello. Sorry about that – time's been flying.

Anyway, I was wondering if I could interview you for the next issue of Super Market, a monthly article featured in the Post about the Flea Market?

I believe that you've rescued:
A441136 Ayrton Senna

To create:
A12511991 Ayrton Senna - The Formula 1 Years (Jul 5, 2006)
A12511955 Ayrton Senna - Racing Legend (Jul 5, 2006)

Are you able to answer these questions:

Would you like to tell me anything about the articles that you have been involved in rescueing?

Would you only rescue articles about subjects you know well?

Have you approached a Flea Market Rescue any differently to how you write an article from scratch? Is it easier or more difficult?

When you write a Flea Market rescue, how do you decide what to keep and what to edit, and how much of a right do you feel that you have in making decisions about the article?

Would you recommend doing Flea Market rescues to other researchers?

How much revision do you think proper in a FM Rescue?

Are there any questions you think I should have asked, or anything else you'd like to say?

Would you consider doing another Flea Market Rescue in the near future?

I hope you're happy for me to interview you - if you have anything else you wish to add, anything you don't want to answer etc, then yes, please feel free to say!

Oh, and if you'd like to mention any of the articles that you've considered rescuing, such as the Yorkshire Dales or Golliwog article, feel free to do so.

Hi Bluebottle,

I hope you are fully recovered from your recent operation smiley - hug


Yes, I would love to take part in your interview. Do you wish me to reply here, or would you prefer to use emails?

Either's fine - whichever is easiest for you!

I'm almost fully recovered - I feel that I have, but still not allowed to do anything particularly active for another week. (Still have to go to work, thoughsmiley - winkeye)

1) Would you like to tell me anything about the articles that you have been involved in rescuing?

A) I was asked to become a Scout for PR and found myself in the embarrassing position of never having actually submitting any work into PR. Being an avid racing fan, be it F1 or MotoGP and WSB (biker), when I found the Senna entry in the Flea Market, I just knew it was for me!


2) Would you only rescue articles about subjects you know well?

A) No. I need to find something of interest about that subject, either within the original Entry, or while researching it further.


3) Have you approached a Flea Market Rescue any differently to how you write an article from scratch? Is it easier or more difficult?

A) I was fortunate the original Senna Entry only contained dates of his race wins. This helped me to do my research with a clear mind, yet still have a focus to keep things in chronological order. It would have been awful to miss out a crucial race win due to an oversight. As for whether it is easier or more difficult, I shall come back to that later.


4) When you write a Flea Market rescue, how do you decide what to keep and what to edit, and how much of a right do you feel that you have in making decisions about the article?

A) I seem to have a set way of writing. I have to be comfortable with the subject matter to do it justice. For research I use both the original work and whatever else I have come across in the way. This makes it a sort of collaborative Entry, I guess.


5) Would you recommend doing Flea Market rescues to other researchers?

A) I would and I have. The Flea Market can give you just the right impetus to learn how to gather information again. Some (like myself) hadn't done any research since school days. I found it rather exciting!


6) How much revision do you think proper in a FM Rescue?

A) To do justice to any work it needs to be fully revised. FM Rescues can be difficult especially if it is controversial or written in a particular style different from your own. Which takes me back to question 3:

I considered taking on an Entry about the Yorkshire Dales, because a newbie sadly couldn't keep up in Peer Review. I did produce something, only for it to be considered 'Too Flowery' in its original context. Not having sufficient knowledge of subject I couldn't unravel it and had to let it go back to FM.

Golliwogs is such a controversial subject. I keep working on it and one day it will be back... If another wishes to take it from the FM Rescue list, they have my blessing.



7) Are there any questions you think I should have asked, or anything else you'd like to say?

A) Nothing comes to mind at the moment, and I think I have covered things fairly fully. Of course you can always ask me for more.



8)Would you consider doing another Flea Market Rescue in the near future?

A) I certainly would be interested. However, I have taken on FM 'Near Misses'. These are Entries where the author has had problems within PR and rather than lose all their hard work, they have 'gifted' the Entries for me to complete.
