I have been reviewing,editing,accepting and transcribing this morning and early afternoon. Is it just my computer or has anybody else had the problem where the "Edit" and "Accept" buttons have been grayed out? I cannot do either. The site allows me to transcribe but that is all. Thanks, Henry
I noticed that there are over 2000 documents to be reviewed for Mary Church Terrell. I try to do some reviews but many times they are documents I transcribed or reviewed and edited.

Seeking information as to US Army involvement in Russia in WWI?
Hi, folks! So...I say yes, give me a page to review, and find it's in the middle of a letter, and the pages around it have been reviewed already!

I sometimes alternate transcribing with reviewing. I have noticed a lot of entries marked "In Progress". I check them and edit or complete them but my question for the moderators is this. Should we use "In Progress" only as a tool to save transcriptions we want to review later? I feel it is being overused and instead entries should be saved and… Show more
