How this all works
« on: April 19, 2012, 02:19:45 PM »
This is a volunteer effort to transcribe some of Jack's podcasts into text.

At present there is nobody "in charge" in the sense of handing out assignments.  If you're volunteering, you're the person who chooses what you're volunteering to do!

Please use this Transcribers' Conference Room board to let other folks know what you're working on, and to coordinate your work.

Transcripts (partial or complete) should be posted in the Podcast Transcripts board.  Anyone who is working on transcripts (as a transcriber or a proofreader/editor) will be allowed to post in Podcast Transcripts -- please contact one of the forum administrators and let us know that you need access.

Many thanks to all the volunteers, and especially to Hootie for getting this ball rolling! :)

Just so you all know... Admins are not following all the planning here in detail, so we may not be aware of who is transcribing, who is thinking about doing some, who is editing, who might be asked to do editing, etc etc.

If you have actually started transcribing any part of any podcast
OR
If you are proposing to edit any transcript already posted
THEN
Please send a PM directly to me or any other admin (well, not including Jack and DEV, who are busy) and we will enable posting/editing access for you in the Podcast Transcripts board.

Regarding editing: Once you have access, you will be able to edit any of the transcript posts.  Please use this awesome power with caution and courtesy!  Contact the person whose transcript you're about to edit, before you do it (unless you're just fixing a simple typo or something similar).

Thanks again to everyone involved!

Just wait until the TSP Illuminated Transcripts start!  ;)

Seriously though, Thanks for all of the hard work Transcribers!
