No worries! I'm based in Brussels, I'm used to Babylon-like situations! Wink

Thank you Bastien,



I will be happy to take on this task.

Also if I am able to approve my own contributions as I follow the guidelines very carefully and research well the covers I could and would be a great asset to this website.


Thank you again!

That is indeed the ultimate objective for you ánd for us!

To achieve this, the first step will be to start using your new editing acces (see here ). I'm sure you'll do a great job, we'll validate those edits, and then we can again give you more access Smile

Given how this concept has evolved and been implemented, "certified" is not/no longer the proper term. As a reminder, my original idea was to elevate a group of long-time contributors who have evidenced strong understanding of site terms and guidelines. These "Certified Contributors" would have the power to make low impact revisions that did not need to be reviewed/approved by the editors. The goal was to lessen the burden on the editors, namely their having to process some common, low impact error reports. These contributors were "certified" to not need the normally applicable review.


If the editors still need to validate edits, I or any other CC might as well just file an error report. In other words, validation would be part of the certification process, but those under review would not yet be certified.


Admittedly, I am struggling to find a replacement word that perfectly fits how the concept is currently implemented. Perhaps "Active" or "Quality"? "Trusted" would not be fit, as that term essentially equates with "Certified" in this context.
