Default Lack of graders

Lock this thread if it isn't neccessary, or if the problem is being fixed, but why aren't there enough graders, or ones that actually do it? A lot of people are waiting a lot longer than they should just because nobody is doing it.

Post something that may help.

Default Re: Lack of graders

I'm a new grader and sadly, I haven't done any grading. I have been just so dang busy with real life.

I'll do my best to get in at least some grading, but I'm going to be taking on a second job (if they hire me), and I am trying to get together with friends I haven't seen in months. I'll still be as active as I can with grading but, I'll be stocked with stuff to do for the next week.

@.@ so much stuff going on in my life...

=^^= Nya

Even though I've only written one story, I'll apply for grader status... =3

I doubt I'll get it, but I hope I do. I'll PM someone later today about it, so check your inboxes. =D

I'd love to apply for grader status, despite my low post count (though I don't think that really matters...XD). I've critiqued about 200 stories in the past, all like the ones on here, and people have said I do a pretty good job.

Default Re: Lack of graders

- New people joining = More stories
- The current grader team has several inactive people.. That doesn't help.
- The writers nag graders, and so graders stop grading entirely, making even less graders.

Obviously, this is a problem. The solution, however, isn't easy. We can not force inactive graders to grade. We also can't get enough new graders, because, quite frankly, a majority of the people who want to be graders are totally unsuited for the job, IMHO. Many use chatspeak, and can't get a Capture on thier own stories, and thus.. Well... They wouldn't be great rolemodels/graders. ^^;

Then again, there are also people who could be graders, but haven't been tested yet. So hopefully, they'll pass the test making more graders, and when summer ends and vacatin ends, the current graders will be back and grading more.

;p I'll admit I wasn't so sure about you when you first joined, but I do think you could be a grader at some point, now. I dunno if you'll pass right now, but if not, I think another few stories, and you'll be ready. You have definitely improved. =)

Heh, I sent Meg a question aking if I couldn't grade without word, but found an online spell and grammar check right after. ;P I going to take test soon. I'm confident in my ability to suceed. ;P

Here's the link, btw. Just paste your story in the text box, click "Spell Check," and then I'm pretty sure it works just like Word.

Well, maybe graders could get a better incentive (for the good ones), I know 500s is big to some people, but the majority of stories are for simple Pokemon. Its really hard to put a 5k story into that many words.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say. Graders get paid by the effort put into the grades themselves, not the length of the story... if that's what you mean.
