Proofreading offsite reviews?

pasdechat pasdechat
This is my first rotation as an editor, so I hope this isn't something someone's already asked in the past. My question is, what do you do when you come across an offsite review? As far as I know, there's no way to actually get in and edit it, but should you make comments on errors and send it back to the reviewer? I don't want to okay something that has a bunch of typos, but I'm not totally sure how to handle the situation :\

I think on offsite reviews you're just editing the Eden part. So the pros/cons and summary. I think you're also supposed to make sure the link is valid and that there's two links back to Eden in the review. Outside of that, you don't do any editing to the offsite review.

Kira's correct, as far as I know. You can't edit offsite reviews fully, as you don't have access to the site.

You just edit the parts that you do have access to.

I refer you to the Editor's FAQ: link

I selected a task and it is a blog review. Am I responsible for the content on the blog?
If you are editing a blog review, you are only responsible for the content that appears on the EF site (title, summary, pros, cons, and experience). You should also test that the link is correct. You are not responsible for the actual content on the blog (other than to ensure it is the correct product being reviewed, it's at least 300 words, and has the 2 required links back to EF) since you do not have access to edit the blog.

Also, if you have any questions about the Editor program and you can not find the answer on the site, you should contact Sammi directly.

Thanks, Kindred! The FAQ is a great resource, and answers a lot of common questions.

If you have any questions, whether they're about off site reviews or anything else about the EdenTasks proofreading program, please feel free to email me at sammi@edenfantasys.com

Thanks to everyone who answered my question, and sorry for overlooking the answer on the FAQ--I'm a little embarrassed now

Bumping this for the new editors.

Of course, any problem with offsite reviews should be reported to Stormy now.
