HOW TO BECOME AN EDITOR

1. Check the status of the ship histories on Naval History -- edited, formatted, or to be formatted.

2. Select a ship you would like to work on. Click here for brief details and images of each ship.

3. Let Naval-History know which log you would like to edit and the formatted WORD file will be emailed to you, if available.
In formatted files, the log page links have been activated, dates edited, and month and year headings added.
A quick check has been made to ensure the log pages are in date order, but this should not be assumed.
The WORD files range from 225Kb to around 2,500Kb.
There is no time limit. Editors may take as long as they like to finish their tasks.
