As of a few minutes ago, when I pasted the bio for Gen. Ruggles and added the improved ratings for him, this project now stands at 250 bios, and that's the number we'll have when the patch is released.

More bios will have to wait for the next patch, which won't be out for some time (unless there's something wrong with this new one we're working on), so there is no hurry to produce new bios, especially since there's that backlog of 100+. As I wrote in that other thread, the thing that slows me down the most is having to add explanatory information, dates, etc. I'm thinking that now would be a good time to slow down the rate of producing new bios a bit, and instead read over old ones with a fresh eye, adding the sorts of things that I usually end up adding. If you guys can do that, we'll be able to get more bios completely done more quickly. The alternative would be to find an "assistant editor" who could be the first to read over the unedited bios and make such changes (in boldface, of course), meaning that there would be less work for me -- any volunteers? (Note that I've already started work on Pope, Pike, Toombs, Rosecrans, Gregg and W.F. Smith, so please do not bother looking those over.)

Thanks for the excellent work!

If there are no volunteers you will impose the draft, that is if the quota is not filled, right?

Not if it leads to unrest and draft riots.
