Thanks for your attention to detail in reviewing and bringing this to our attention, Joseph! Currently, volunteers can't reopen and edit Completed transcripts. You're correct that as Community Managers, we can edit closed items, but we're new to this, so it will take a few days to make those changes. We will work on a solution and get back to you early next week!

I've had a look to see whether I can make these changes, but the way to do it is eluding me. I think that this is a feature we'll need to add in the coming weeks as we continue to develop the capabilities of the administrative functions of the website behind the scenes. In the meantime, it's really helpful of you to have listed (and linked!!) the pages here with the missing information. This is a good interim way of capturing this sort of thing. Likewise, if you were the person to add the tag "James Blight", that was absolutely the right thing to do.
Thanks for your attention to detail and for taking the time to report back to us here on History Hub.
Any more on this question since October?
I was snooping around (to get the hutzpah to start reviewing) and found a completed transcript with missing names that I was able to decipher. It would be good to be able to go back and fill those in at some point.
My catch was in Civil War Reminiscences, id: mss13375001-544
Thanks for any new info. In the meantime, we'll keep on trekking!
Reviewing is lots of fun, Suzanne. Jump right in: the water's fine!
Ha! This project is nothing if not encouraging! From the "you got this!" in the transcription window to your little nudge over the edge.
Even if one's confidence lacks in the swimming, there seem to be plenty of floats around.
We are still working on this issue. Community Managers are logging of all community-suggested changes to completed items in the meantime.
You can see the ticket to add this functionality and track its progress here: https://github.com/LibraryOfCongress/concordia/issues/544
We are belatedly making our way through early History Hub reopening requests now that we have that functionality. I have reopened this page for editing in case you'd still like to make changes!
