Transcription of SAL royal seals: Field "Seal type" Missing?

Hi Daniel,

shouldn’t there be a “Seal type” field in the form? If not, where should we put this information?

Thank you for this new interesting project.

Best regards,
Denis

Hi Denis,

Thank you so much for giving our new application a go. It is something I’ve also realised that the application could have done with, but for now if you could add this information in the ‘Date of Reign’ box - sometimes there is no date listed but only a seal type eg. ‘2nd seal’ - that would be helpful.

We’ll try to get a seal type box added for the next application ‘consorts’.

Many thanks,

Lucy

Hi Lucy,

just wanted to let you know that no photo can be obtained for tasks 81691, 92, 93, 94 & 95. Neither next to the form, nor on Flickr.
81696 seems ok.

All the best,
Denis

Oops… seems to be a bit better now…
No worries, then!

Denis

I’ve added seal type to the latest 2 projects.

Hello Daniel,

thanks for your help (again).

There’s also something that you could do (and have done for an “old” project): making sure that striking the “Enter” key in the first 5 fields doesn’t act as the “Submit” button.
You’d get fewer incomplete transcriptions.

Thank you again.

Regards,
Denis

Tee hee heee, Daniel!

Hi all,

here’s a nice video about it all (including a scanning demonstration). Enjoy.

Can’t wait for the other 9600 other cards!

Hello @dejp3 !

Concerning this application, it seems like every task needs to be done 30 times. Isn’t that too much?
