    Default Note to contributors

    You all know there's more to maintaining the site than just reading & posting, so I don't wish to dwell on workload. That said, there are a couple of steps you could all take to cut down on my editing time. It may sound like I'm picking nits, but one way in which we differentiate ourselves from those "other" sites is in careful and accurate use of language. Following up with the below will free up more time for me to be useful in other ways, so please...

    • make sure you list author & date; if no author or date, please note that so I recognize it's not an oversight

    • book and journal titles are italicized. Some sources do it, some do not. When the source neglects it, please catch it.

    • strongly urge you all to use the PREVIEW POST function. You will see how your post will appear and can catch errors, omissions, can correct boldface that appears where you do not want it, etc. Much more efficient than having to go back and edit...or make ME edit!

    Thanks, everyone! You know I appreciate all your contributions — as do the several hundred guests who come here daily to read & research!

    Thanks for the heads-up, Islander. Could you maybe make this a sticky?
