Textual Status

From Nordan Symposia
Jump to navigationJump to search


The icons below may be used to indicate the development status of any text. They may appear on author pages, lists of texts, chapter lists, and any other pages where the information might be useful including talk pages.

  • Beginning.jpg: There is no guarantee that any part of the text is reliable, at all proofread, or properly formatted.
The text may not yet be complete.
  • Making progress.jpg: The text is apparently complete and mostly formatted, but may still contain errors in content and formatting. Use this if:
the text has been scanned by a Nordan Symposia contributor, but not yet proofread.
the text has been imported from the Web, and the source is not known to be reliable.
  • Looking good.jpg: The text is reasonably reliable and properly formatted, and supplied with information about the source. Use this if:
the text has been proofread and corrected by one user, who has checked it with a reference edition.
the text has been imported from a reliable source (e.g. Project Gutenberg, Gallica) and double-checked for formatting and scanning errors.

Using these icons makes it easier for readers to check the progress and quality of a text. They also make it easier for contributors to see which texts need improvement.
