Editors play an important role within the GCD. Their responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring data being entered matches the correct formatting
  • Approving the data that's being entered by Indexers.

Indexers who have shown they have a good grasp on our policies, an eye for detail and an above average knowledge of comics may become Editors, in charge of approving the information added by others. More information on the duties and on becoming an Editor can be found at the Editor Wiki. If you have been indexing with the project for a while and are interested in the Editor position, please inquire on our mailing lists so that a current Editor can submit your name for consideration.
