Formal Mentoring is a great tool to quickly learn the ropes of editing correctly and efficiently. It includes the potential for accelerated rank and role upgrades.
The New York editing community also communicates using a Google+ page, and community, these are linked below.
We are using the Discord platform for text (voice, and video) chat, please join us here, and ask to be added to the local group if you edit in our region.
The conversations are segmented by areas, and topics. For New York state there is a general state channel, and then three local channels; #ny_state_east, #ny_state_west, and #ny_greater_nyc_li. This image indicates the general division for the local channels.
We used to use Google Hangouts heavily in this region for real time communication. We have since transitioned to the Discord platform discussed above due to its many more features, and technical limitations of the Google Hangouts platform.
For those who have access security issues, and can not access the discord platform, please reach out to one the state managers, and/or (Assistant) Regional Coordinators for an alternate access through Google Hangouts.
