This is the official call for writers and editors for the ocPortal book. As suggested by O, I think we could benefit from the "pass it around" editing technique which will work to homogenize the writing style. So I hope everyone who is willing to write is also willing to edit at least one chapter.

So far,the possible volunteers I am aware of for writing chapters are:
Duck
Jean (available in August)
Felipe
Hamburgler
SoccerDad
Harry-S (maybe)
O (Editing - Spelling/Punctuation/Grammar)
mythus (Wiki+)

If I have missed your name or you wish to volunteer to write or edit a chapter, please let me know in this thread. If there is a particular chapter (using the outline in the first post in View topic: Book structure/chapters - ocPortal.com) you would like to write, please let me know. I would really like to fill the slots for the first six chapters at the very least so that we could post that if people are in agreement about doing so.

I look forward to working with everyone and a special thank you for those who volunteer in the spirit of open-source.

Bob

My time is pretty (very) tight, but I can probably proof read a bit.  It'll be more for Spelling/Punctuation/Grammar than technical accuracy, though, I'm afraid.

Thanks for offering, O. I have put you on the list for editing spelling, punctuation and grammar. Any help you (or anyone) can provide is appreciated.

That's a real shame.   :(   I really hope that you manage to free up some time in the future - your knowledge and insight would be of great help.  But I appreciate that making the time can be difficult.

I may do. But I am realizing I am way over commited just now and have several other priorites I should be focusing on first. I am eager to see the progres of this project though and if I can knock out a few of my other commitments I might be able to contribute later.

Hopefully, you will be able to contribute to the project at some point when your schedule allows. I agree that losing your availability on this project is a genuine loss for the project.

Meant to share this earlier today - mythus has graciously agreed to write the chapter on Wiki+. I think we are very fortunate to have mythus on our team to cover this area as he is truly a master of using CEDI/Wiki+.

A master? Oh you give me too much credit lol.

But as I said earlier, I'm glad to help however I can. ocPortal is more than worth it.

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!

Quick question,

I bet it has already been discussed/told to me, but I forget and since I am rather short on time today, I think I'll just ask again:

When do you want a draft of Wiki+ info (besides what I gave you in PT that is lol)?

At this very moment, being a parent is clamouring and fighting for any free time I thought I had gained…. School is starting up here in a week so getting the kids ready has taken priority to all things. So hopefully you are not wanting it within a couple of weeks or whatever lol.
