All transcriptions will be used.

(This has come up before ;))

If this should become a feature, please make it optional (default off) for those wishing a bit of privacy.

In the forum, there's already something called "Show others my online status" under Profile -> Account Settings.
If you uncheck this, you will appear as a Hidden User under "Who's Online" - so nobody can see your name.
We could do something similar for the transcribing, I guess - just have it say "1 hidden user is transcribing this ship" or something.

That way, those wanting privacy will get it, but other transcribers will still know what they need to know.

Currently, you can only be anonymous if you are outside the top 12.
As Helen noted, you can see who in the top 12 is transcribing by checking their numbers.

Can the new interface please reserve a page to the user (lock it out for others to get) for a period of say 10 min before releasing it again if the page is not filled in.
Michael and I are both third scribes and are on line much the same time, as such we are doing a lot of double ups.

Stuart, that's a whole other layer of sophistication for a platform that is so shiny brand new they don't even have manuals written yet for the users because they don't know exactly what's there yet.  We are being the guinea pigs.  I don't want to add the stress of passing that on.

Truly sorry because I do understand why you are asking.

But perhaps we might re-visit it sometime next year do you think?

It's here for us to review anyway  :)

I did some practice with the'new' interface when it was first released before I went on holiday and hospital.
What has changed since day one of the release and where can I look and test it?

TIA
Stuart.

This is the current state of things.  It is a fully functional interface that is still has the normal quota of new-interface-bugs being chased down and squashed.  You can choose your ship, and the page you first mark on, and mark and then transcribe as you go.  (Click on any marked box and then click the little blue pencil-scribble icon in its lower right corner.)  Or Mark only.  Or transcribe only.  Or do any of the above randomly.
