No Warranties

Let's get the nasty bit out of the way. I cannot provide any warranty for the use of the Editor Mode service. It is (and any related documentation) provided as is without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, the implied warranties or merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or noninfringement.

If I'm an author/creator

The most important thing to understand as an author/creator is that by sending your project to someone else you are essentially giving them a copy of your work. Quoll Writer cannot prevent them from using your work in a way you didn't intend. It is important that you establish some trust with your editors, if you don't have that comfort level then please do not use this service.

You must also have realistic expectations of your editors. Provide reasonable deadlines and be polite in your requests and dealings with them. Provide clear instructions on what you would like them to do and/or focus on. You are asking someone to perform a task for you, don't be rude.

If I'm an editor

As an editor you have great power and responsibility. You may often be editing work that has taken the author (many) years to produce so be gentle but fair in your feedback. Also, be constructive, put yourself in the author's place and think about how you would like to receive comments.

Paid editing services

It's ok to offer paid editing services and use the Editors Service. There is no charge for doing so. However you must disclose any costs and terms and conditions before accepting a project from a client. Failing to do so may result in you being banned from the service and your account deleted.
