Feel free to add to or edit information in this discussion tab as necessary. Please take time to become familiar with the General Keying Standards and be sure to read all instructions on the main project page. (Please note that in case of a discrepancy, project level instructions always trump general keying standards.)
- Some sets crash upon opening. If you get one of these, cancel it, select "The image set has problems that prevent completion." And indicate that you have received an error message. You should be able to work on the remaining ones while the underlying issue is being resolved.
Sample error message:
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at KTDataManager.DataManager.u6abhot34bx5uhk(Object ) at KTDataManager.DataManager.GetDocType(Int32 docIndex) at ArbitrateFormType.ArbitrateFormTypeControl.(Object , Int32 ) at ArbitrateFormType.ArbitrateFormTypeControl.(Boolean ) at ArbitrateFormType.ArbitrateFormTypeControl.NotifyNeedsReload() at KeyingTool.MainForm.rtq4k(Object ) at KeyingTool.MainForm.StartNewBatch() at SelectBatch.SelectBatchControl.(Object ) at SelectBatch.SelectBatchControl.(Object , EventArgs ) at SelectBatch.BatchList.2f0my0() at SelectBatch.BatchList.du10(Object , EventArgs )

Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers
Card backs: Somebody is using 2 lines on each of these, where only one is required. They are putting the "working since year" on a line by itself, and the remainder of the data on the next line. (Is someone trying to inflate their record count?) --Paulmd199 06:15, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Card Fronts: Omitting the card date. It is located on the lower left, in a blank reading "Litzmannstadt-Getto, den ______ 194__" --Paulmd199 06:25, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Character recognition: the typing in many images is degraded. Tip: in some cases the signature of the worker "Unterschrift d. Ausweisinhabers" will be readable when the typing is not. --Paulmd199 17:43, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Lost in Translation: Somebody is going through the trouble of translating the fields into English. This is not necessary and will count as an error. --Paulmd199 18:08, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
