- There is a link from http://metavid.org/wiki/Help:FAQ#What.27s_in_the_archive.3F to "Help:Volunteer" but the link doesn't seem to go anywhere (http://metavid.org/w/index.php?title=Help:Volunteer&action=edit&redlink=1 ); is this correct?

- Where are the editing standards reference pages? In particular, why are transcripts devoid of capitalization? If I make editing corrections should I also correct speaker's names so they are capitalized? How about beginnings of sentences? If all the source captions are mono-case have you considered running an auto-capitalize algorithm to fix sentence beginnings and known proper nouns?
