List of editors
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.

This group consisted of three members of the editors group who were designated "editorial administrators" by the Chair, with the responsibility of reporting to the board for the editors group. These positions were filled in accordance with standard board practice for administrator positions.
Upon appointment, the immediate responsibilities of the "editorial administrators" were:
- creating a recommendation defining the criteria for appointing individuals to the editor role, and submitting this recommendation to the board,
- creating a recommendation defining the criteria for removing individuals from the editor role, and submitting this recommendation to the board,
- creating a recommendation for arbitrating and moderating editorial discussions and disputes among indexers and/or editors, and submitting this recommendation to the board.
The board may from time to time change the responsibilities of the "editorial administrators."
The editorial administrators completed the first task but never completed the other two tasks. The Board voted to dissolve the "editorial administrators" group on 2020-11-12.
