Third quarter report on DP-PM activities

Posted by Snapjudge மேல் ஒக்ரோபர் 5, 2006

Here is an update of the Distributed Proofreading (DP) activity of
Project Madurai (PM) in the past 3 months (July – Sep., 2006).

In this quarter, we had a very active participation from our
volunteers which helped us to finish a record number of pages
and hence more books. The statistics below offers a better picture
of the progress made through Distributed Proofreading.

Although, the number of active volunteers in DP-PM has relatively
stayed the same, the few who volunteer are making an immense
contribution, through their regular participation.

Please consider joining and participating in DP-PM; completing one
page a day easily adds up to 30 pages from each volunteer. In case
you have some comments to make DP-PM even more user friendly, do let
me know.


PS: In case you have received this email through the Project Madurai list on
Yahoo groups, apologies for sending it again.
