Cascading Set of Features for the SOL collaborative system

Guests may

  • see a bar graph showing the overall status of the whole project, letter by letter (i.e. the system calculates and shows percentages for silver=unassigned, yellow=assigned, blue=translated but unvetted, red=draft status, orange=low status, green=high status); to the left of that bar graph is a column of hyperlinked Greek letters; click on them to see in tabular form the status details for every entry in the SOL; that display lets one drill down to database lookups of the actual entries, though the feature is initially turned off by default so as to yield smaller file sizes
  • search the database in various ways (including with regular expressions and Boolean operators) and view entries
  • see the original source text in various display flavors of Greek (including transliterated, SGreek, SMK GreekKeys Athenian, Unicode, and TLG "beta code")
  • click on hotlinked keywords in search results to find and browse related entries
  • click on "next" or "previous" buttons in search results to see nearby entries
  • follow any links to external resources (e.g. Perseus, BMCR, or Gnomon)
  • send an e-mail directly to the translator or editor of a particular entry with comments or questions
  • read logs of recent activity
  • update their user profiles (select Greek font display and preferred Perseus mirror for links)
  • see a roster of all active participants

Translators may also

  • request, translate, and modify specific entries
  • receive lexical and morphological assistance via links to the on-line Liddell Scott Jones Lexicon of Classical Greek from the Perseus Project
  • implement links from their own work to external internet resources
