Each day I start there and have started to notice that after I save and submit, some of the pages I worked on end up back in "in progress". I do not think this is a glitch in the system but someone may be reviewing and then putting it back in "in progress". I think this… (Show more)

I've been working on "in progress" documents, and often there are illegible words remaining that I am unable to make out. Do I just save my work and move on, or do I "submit for review"? I've… (Show more)

I could fix them pretty quickly if they were not marked "Complete." Is that possible?   Here are the two items:   National American Woman Suffrage… (Show more)

However, I was encouraged Henry Rosenberg to post any tips I may have.   It may be helpful to provide a link to an example of the long s (in addition to the explanation of it) in the "How to Transcribe" instructions.

I am working on a printed newspaper (no handwriting) that has a few tears in it.  There are partial words visible on the page beneath.  Should we transcribe partial text seen through a tear in the page?  I believe that will only confuse readers and leave a lot of [?] within the transcription.   Thanks, MB
