The problem is that our manual of style has mostly been oral so far. We do have written guidelines for images, references, and naming (though we haven't yet agreed on the spelling/translation of certain Alicization names and terms, but plan to hold a discussion on them soon, hopefully), but I just couldn't find the time to put all the fine points about page formatting and good style into writing yet, seeing as I have to juggle uni, kendo, wiki stuff, SAO news and other stuff, so I've mostly shared pointers on style via chat conversations or edit reviews till now. If you want a detailed and written manual of style, I could try to get one written down next week. Or if you're in a hurry, I could just make a quick list of common mistakes for reference and then just look through what you have written to point out any issues I find.

Edit: Valgaaf want me to mention that he's volunteering to look through your edits himself first to practice his reviewing skills. Seeing as I won't be able to get to any new edits on the same day, I don't mind him giving a once over before I look through the text myself.

I have no issue with anyone trying to help out with plot summaries, since we are actually short-handed in the plot summary department. However, as Val has mentioned, I am a quality freak - I believe that good quality is more important than mere quantity, which is why we're lacking on the quantity. I used to do episode summaries myself, but I've just been too swamped to handle everything lately, so I couldn't get around to them.

I have no problem with following your Manual of Style and submitting them for review
