Subject: JFA Update
After a period of spending too many hours on my day job, I have now cut back considerably. I’m now back to working more than 40 hours a week on the JFA site. This will accelerate the pace of progress.
We now have a professional copy editor on board! I’m sure he would recommend using exclamation marks sparingly, but the previous sentence deserves one. I had the pleasure of meeting Isaac Nickerson during an Anonymous for the Voiceless (AV) event. He is an organizer for AV Seattle. As a professional copy editor he is intimately familiar with The Chicago Manual of Style, nuances of American English, and, of course, copy editing. I’ll be updating the “Meet the Team” page soon to include him.
I coded the capability to download outlines from WordPress, so round-trip outlining is now a reality. Logged in users can download outlines that are compatible with our outlining tool — the Atom Editor with the Folding Text package. So now if you want to use the outlining tool to make substantial changes to an outline that has already been published and/or modified in WordPress, you can download the outline, make the changes, and paste the outline back into the post. This will make authoring and revision more efficient.
Before too long, you will get another email on how you can help. I hope it hasn’t, but if your life situation has changed and you can no longer contribute, please let me know and I’ll remove you from the team and the email list — no problem.
