Volunteers Needed!

Tuesday, March 29, 2011 - 11:59 AM

Have you ever searched for a particular Sheldon strip or punchline…only to realize that the one you're looking for can't be found? That's because not all the strips have been transcribed, yet! Guys, I need your help!

We're currently 400 strips behind…but if we used our combined super-powers, we could burn through those strips in no time. If everyone did even ONE STRIP…we'd power through 'em! Are you willing to help?


1.) First: To make sure you're not logged in to the Sheldon system (as that will mess up the transcription system) this real quick.
2.) Second: Open up the instructions in a tab or window in your browser.
3.) Then, in a separate tab or window, open up the list of strips that need transcribing. Pick any strip listed under "Strips needing editing", and follow along with the instructions.


I had wanted to have the system track the number of strips you transcribed, but unfortunately the two databases (the user login and the transcriptions) aren't playing nice with each other. So! If you want to track the dates of the ones you've done/did/do, I'm still happy to honor the first two previously mentioned gifts (see below). Don't know the dates of ones you've already done? I'm OK with honest guesstimations. :)

- Transcribe 50 strips, get a personalized, inked Sheldon character sketch (of your choice) mailed to you!
- Transcribe 100 strips, get a personalized Sheldon book mailed to you with a sketch inside!

- Additionally, everyone who chips in will get a free high-five from me, any time I walk by!

When you're ready to redeem, just Click to email me.

A Momentary Lightness

The boundaries between reality and fiction are blurry to Sheldon. It's all very serious!
