Hi! I'm currently able to come online only on weekends to copy-paste all the reviews I complete offline (verify). While you're on my page, please leave a message. I'll be delighted to know that you were here.
To give due respect to the diligent authors and their articles waiting in the GAC queue by ensuring a fair, thorough and quick review and also in the process learn from them as much as possible.
I wrote it during my GAN training under my mentor Quadell towards the endof my fourth GAN review.
I hate to see great authors like you waiting in the queue with their articles. Swiftly releasing the time, attention and focus of these authors from the GAC would, I believe, do a lot of good to WP.
I'm unable to contribute on WP as an author due to technical difficulties, time constraints and, of course, incompetence but I want to atleast help other great WPians do that.
I complete my reviews offline along with my other daily obligations during the daytime and post them in the wee hours when the internet connection peaks which is usually around 3 am. I put in, I believe, a significant amount of work offline. My mission statement has been the driving force.
Reading is my hobby and whenever I come across a good article at GAC, it's a sort of an irresistible impulse. That's why I may appear to be in a rush.
I don't start reviewing an article with any preconceived notion. I religiously apply the GA criteria and if no issues come out in the end, I post my review and pass the article.
But I need to hone my assessment skills a lot which are far from good at the moment.
That's why I always undertake a thorough background check on the nominators before clicking on the "start review", like the one you are doing on me now.
I choose articles that are already a GA as per my rough assessment before starting the review.
It's a learning curve for me and I will commit mistakes; my goal is to learn from them.
So please feel free to convey your candid assessment of my reviews anytime on my feedback page with or without curse words.
I will incorporate your suggestions in my future reviews. Thanks!
