Q: What is the difference between Arbitration and Review? Sorry if that's a silly question butI have only just gained Reviewer status and am about to start!

A: When you review you are only reviewing 1 keyer. Arbitration is when you review two keyers. Most projects are now review only. I think there may be a few USHMM projects that are arbitration. --Wiedwoman 14:47, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Adding to Karen's answer... Arbitration notes the differences between two keyers entries and the arbitrator decides if one, or neither, are correct and review is a more experienced contributor who looks at every entry (and field) to ensure the accuracy of the entries. The review entry area looks the same as when keying but the arbitration is very different. (The articles show pictures of each grid.) Annafechter 18:51, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Q: How do I become a Reviewer? Are there any prerequisites? Keying is ok, just becoming a little bored with nothing but keying,

A. Usually you need to have an overall accuracy rating of exceptional which is 92% and better and you receive an invite. If you think you meet this and haven't received an invite you can email Anna at for her to check if you're eligible.
