I'm not sure what you mean by "confusion". Do you mean two people working
on the same thing at once? If so, that can be easily solved (and was GOING
to be solved but I was asked to desist) by implementing a "taken" or "i
got it" system *and* some sort of saved-copy-of-original-submission
system *in the application*. This would help with both editing
"locking" and Joe Skriptkiddie doing a Ctrl+A, Del of someone's new
submission, losing it forever.

So, if that's what you mean, that's just a tools issue and can be easily

Other than using — and "evolt" rather than "Evolt", there's really no
quidelines. We basically try to keep the *writer's* style in tact, fixing
only grammatical and spelling errors. So, again, I don't think this will
be a problem.

Once again, being on theforum lists is not the same as having the priv
level to edit/approve articles. They're two separate things. It just so
happens that *probably* everyone with the priv level to edit/approve
articles would be on theforum.
