Why a proofreading contest?

Other than the obvious fun :)

and the fact that we have some folks who generously contributed the prizes

why have a proofreading contest?

Well- for example---- Genesis

we transcribed Genesis from a TINY printed Bible from the Edwin Archer's press.

We later found (online) a pdf a library had posted.

We wanted to compare the two with each other but had moved on to other projects- and felt we needed help-
your help- dear readers!-

and so the idea of a contest was born!

Almost immediately after the idea, the gifts were given-- so we had a prize

it just seemed fortuitous.


an added benefit:  we know that people are using the Genesis to Study the language.
