Infiniverse Exchange Editor's Club

I was wondering if anyone was interested in forming an "editor's club" for the Infiniverse Exchange.
Basically a group of people who will read/edit people's works before we put them on the Exchange.
I know I do a pretty decent job proof-reading other's work, but can't spot an error in my own work to save me.
I'm not talking about rule discussion and feedback for new material (that's another subject), just a read-through to get misspellings (that spell check didn't get because they are another word - such as "an" when "and" is needed) or when something might be understandable to me, because I am the author, but not to someone else.


Edit:
Current 'list" of willing proofreaders/editors:
ZorValachan
Savioronedge
Nyarlathotep
Mike McCall
maxhavic
ETStorm
Etan Krel
Tynam
Stewbacca
kgrroth

I have a lot happening in life at the moment, which is why I didn't sign up for the advanced creation group.

As a self professed grammar-nazi, I am happy to provide a read through on anything you want.

Maybe a mod can move thus to the new Infiniverse Exchange forum?

I don't have anything new ready at the moment, i just know from experience people are their own worst editors and am willing to look over people's "finished" works to catch any spelling/grammar mistakes before they send it out

I've put together a fair amount of extra content over the past months, and right now I'm looking at what I can polish up to a commercial format. I'm also willing to edit others' work should they need it.

I am, typically, very good at reading others work, and would be happy to read through and help others. My problem is time and gumption; I have little of either, right now.

Greeting and Salutations,

We here too would like to be part of the Editor's Club.

Our GM is also the High Lord of Grammar so years of experience would be beneficial in critiquing anything the community brings forward ;)

So, is there to be an organization of this Editor's Club, or is it to remain loose on the forums?
