Everyone wants to know what is done with all of our work.
Before the ship is finished, there will be transcribers going in and editing pages besides the incompleteness, so no data is harvested while a ship is being transcribed. Once the ship goes VAL (View All Logs - no more transcription available) all the climate data gets grabbed by the climatologists, analyzed and put in the global data bases - it is all in at least 5 databases, and there are videos showing how much improved those databases are with our additions, no one else is adding our material. Technically you can still edit transcriptions from VAL ships, but those corrections will likely never get picked up.
Eventually, Philip will send Naval-History.Net the complete comments transcripts (minus weather readings) and we will put that online to read and hope we can find an editor.
When an editor asks for a ship, they make the transcription much improved. Then finally we make it some maps and put the finished piece online.
