Apache experts,

At the moment I write this message, we have 754 open questions in this area and the oldest ones are from September 2000. So it is high time to close all these old questions.

So we search experts that:
- experts in this area just to be sure you are familiar with the questions you will have to close
- active in the last 3 months - you can be great expert but if in the last 3 months you have at all 10 comments that means you have no time...
- have some time and want to help.

If you fit in the above, please read:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hs7

If after reading it, you are still interested in helping please post here and I will assign you a range to work on.
If you have any questions, please ask.

Thank you very much for the help.

I'd be willing to help as well, providing that the load and timelines aren't too stringent.  I've read the instructions, and believe that I understand them.

I'm willing to try 40-50 questions per week - I assume that my resignation would be taken gracefully if I find that this is not a duty I can accomodate?

One question - should all 54 be in the same posting in the cleanup area, or can they be split into a couple of postings, if I have, for instance time to do half at a time?

i wish i could help.  but i think there is plenty of pending question, and I happens to be in the waiting list to get the pts too...that would make me a bit bias in closing them.

do any of you take bribe:)  -- just kidding.

samri - I'm sure that AnnieMod will clarify (AnnieMod - not trying to answer in your place), but neither you nor I are in the running for most of the very old questions (which is where we start - and there's more than plenty to go around).  

Additionally, according to the cleanup rules, you can either skip the questions that you'd recommend for yourself, or you could still suggest yourself as the answerer.  Everyone has 7 days to object - and the moderator makes the final decision, not you.

Question for clarification:

When whould Delete/No Refund be selected over Delete?  Am I correct that if it is unclear that the user's question has been answered, experts have responded, but the user has never given the extra information that it is a good case for Delete/No Refund, or should these be just simply Delete?

You might want to suggest that they modify the cleanup FAQ so that under the section marked 'The Options', it says Delete/Refund instead of just Delete, and that it includes your clarification of what Delete/Refund is - that helps immensely!

I would also recommend changing the recommended comment so that it says the following (to correct the grammar to match the allowed options):

I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area with the following recommendation for this question:

Hi AnnieMod -

I'm a bit confused -- I thought with the PageEditor system that the cleanup volunteers were no longer needed?

Hi Annie -

Sorry - it's been busy for me lately, too.  Yes, I still want to help, in smaller doses (say, 15-25 at a time) - would that still be a help?

I notice that our fast-moving cleanup volunteer uses:

This question has been classified as abandoned.  I will make a recommendation to the moderators on its resolution in 4 days.  I would appreciate any comments by the experts that would help me in making a recommendation.

It is assumed that any participant not responding to this request is no longer interested in its final disposition.

If the asker does not know how to close the question, the options are here:

If this is used, then what recommendation is made in cleanup?

Also, what is the 'FASTCAT FORMAT' that I see at the bottom of many of the cleanup lists in the cleanup TA?  Is this generated through some software that makes life easier?

Thanks for the answers on FastCat, and the CD& option :)  I just was never quite certain how it worked.

One last question... if in the course of reviewing a question, I believe that I know a better solution than has been provided, should I post it?  Or should I just handle the question 'as is'?

One last note - I'm going to be out of town (and with very limited computer access) for August 15-30;  I'm trying to clear up as much of April and May 2004 before I leave, but if there is a 'break' between my posts, that's why.

I'm really sorry;  I posted as soon as I noticed.  Perhaps I'm not the correct person to be assisting you folks.  I'm happy to be helping out, but if I'm causing more work than help, then it's not worth it for you.

Thanks Annie -

Assignment complete - March, April, May 2004 done (except for the handful that I participated in).

Now, it's time for me to get the clients happy before vacation - whoohoo!

While I might have a few minutes here and there on vacation, I'm concerned about holding up the process ... if you have 'low priority' clearing, feel free to assign them to me... or would it just be better for me to check back in September?

Generally, if I feel it's clearcut (and if it isn't to recommend me), I make the recommendations on the ones that I'm involved in - somehow, when I'm working as the cleanup volunteer, it doesn't seem right to recommend myself. (Never mind that I do recommend myself at times when someone else is the cleanup volunteer... ack, I need that vacation!)

(P.S. Is this the best contact method - i.e. posting via a topic, or should I be emailing you at AnnieMod@experts-exchange.com ?  I hate to be boring everyone with my saga of learning to be a cleanup volunteer).

:))) Boring who? This area is the best place - so we have all and if you need some answer you do not need to find the mails. However - mail is working also so.. your choice.

I do give ranges here but for anything else - if you will feel more comfortable via mail - use it:) I will answer via mail or here with the same speed - If I am online- immediatelly; otherwise - when I return :)
