This approach makes perfect sense considering the scale and challenge of reviewing newspapers and other dense typed pages. It's always best to focus effort on significant errors likely to impact search, such as the names of places, people or organizations, or key terms that you think someone might look for. A typo like "teh" for "the" is unlikely to have a big effect on future readers or researchers.
We might have to make "Let's get these pages to the people!" the official BTP motto!
If you put it on a T shirt, I want a free one!
Also, I just wanted to let you know, I am going through the Mary Church Terrell pages because I realized that nobody was doing them. I have about 200 left to go and put some that were not completed back "in progress". I am unlikely to do them since it is not the type of work I prefer to do. And I noticed Anna Dickinson is going very slowly. I finished that project 3 months ago. There are only a few hundred pages left so if we can get those done, it would be ready to publish. These are pages I worked on so cannot accept.
Take care and stay well,

I just reread some of these discussions. I don’t mind doing long newspaper articles but I don’t have a laptop. I have to go to the public library to use their computers when reviewing something too big for my iPad screen. I’ve been reviewing long articles there in a somewhat random order. However, if you have ones that need reviewing in order to finish up a project, please send me links. It will give me some focus.
