Q: Once I have submitted an image set and realize I misinterpreted some information is there any way to recall it to make corrections?
- A: No, sorry there is no way to recall it once it has been submitted. --Wiedwoman 05:47, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Q: The instructions indicate a keyer can cancel "with problems" an illegible image set. If at review we encounter an image set that is far too illegible for me to key (orig keyer marked image as "image with no data") do I send back for keying or cancel review "with problems". --Rhmaynard 15:16, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
- A: I would reject the set as they did not use the correct form. --Wiedwoman 18:17, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
R: I did that with the first set I ran into. I was just wondering what was happening with the sets cancelled with problems. This project is "Medium" difficulty I'm sure because of the image quality. But some of these are just frankly NOT POSSIBLE to read. I'll just throw back and see what happens. --Rhmaynard 22:14, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
- A: I think that the persons who have access to the cancelled queue will try and read them, but if they can't I don't know what Anna will do with them..... I've been returning the cancelled ones back into the keying queue to see if someone can read them. But if they are cancelled over 5 times they will automatically be sent to the cancelled queue. There are over 30 now that have been returned the maximum amount..... --Wiedwoman 22:24, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Q: I'm working on a Field Bindweed Schedule and some of the farms are owned by a company rather than an individual. How do I enter this? Would "Atlas Pwd Co." all be entered as the given name and leave the surname blank? Or leave the given name blank and enter all as the surname? My image set is about to expire... its been four days and I would really like an answer to my question please
- A: Business names should be entered in the given field. --Wiedwoman 16:44, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Q: The only form choices are "no information to key", but I have a census form with names. How do I find the appropriate form?
