2011-05-20 [Chimes]: I know that our Uni tells us they have a scanning program which... some how compares loads of texts at the same time from le interet with our essays - whether it's true or not, I don't know. But it's better to be safe than sorry. Same with publishers, they're less likely to take on stuff that's been anywhere on the internet.
2011-05-20 [Lothuriel]: Perhaps an email addy offered up to those who do not wish their works to be posted online?
2011-05-20 [Mortified Penguin]: If they're anything like my school, their scanning program is called "Google".
2011-05-20 [Chimes]: Mebbe, Mort. :P Could be true.
2011-05-21 [Akayume]: It's all up to the submitter. :P That's their prerogative, not ours. I think it's silly to say, "Hey guys, we can only accept stuff you'll never need to use/want to use anywhere else!" because that's... Well, I'm sure you can see the flaw in that. (:
Not only that, but do you really think every professor checks every paper handed in everywhere on the internet? Prolly not. I would assume they only would if it wasn't in the student's voice/was suspiciously good. :P
We aren't re-writing works. Only proofreading. (:
2011-05-22 [Linderel]: That's a blank page you just linked to :O
2011-05-22 [Paul Doyle]: Time for the proofreading to commence! ^_~
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: Huzzah!
2011-05-23 [hanhepi]: great idea y'all!
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: Thank you. (:
2011-05-31 [Alexi Ice]: Bleh. I would really like my new Et prose submission proof read by someone. Are both of you judging this one?
2011-05-31 [Linderel]: I am, anyway. I'm not sure about Akay but I think she is as well.
2011-05-31 [Akayume]: I am indeed. :/ Soz. Otherwise I would do it for youuuu. <3
2011-05-31 [Akayume]: :D :D
2011-06-04 [Mystin]: Why treat this wiki like an official one? It's impolite to say that you won't look at something if it's not good enough. That is not what Elftown is about.
2011-06-04 [Akayume]: We never said we wouldn't look at something if it isn't good enough. o.o
The problem is that if someone's entering one of the official contests here on elftown, and wishes to have something proofread, at least for the contests running now Lin and I are helping to judge them (since we are some of the literature judges). We could not remain impartial if we new who wrote what piece. We're not supposed to know who wrote what. (:
Unless I'm confused, is that what you were implying after?
2011-06-04 [Akayume]: If it's for the prose contest or the limerick contest, I cannot. If it's for the limerick contest, I think Lin already entered that, so she could proofread, but both of us have already said we'd judge the next prose contest. (: It was a bit of a mistake on our part. Perhaps for future competitions we'll have one of us judge so the other can still proofread.
