The guide will be helpful, I have no doubt. And of course it won't work for everyone, there will always be those kinds of people, but in general I feel that telling the person they are being insulting is the best route for everyone. It prevents misunderstandings in the future, on both sides.

Thanks for the guide, though. It is excellent! :D

You are most certainly welcome! (=3) I'll definitely write more guides in the future- THIS is the encouragement I needed!

EDIT: If you don't see me online for the next couple of days, it's because I may have no Net at home until we can pay off the bill. I only expect that for a couple of days. :3

Wow! Really super Guide,

Hm... Now can I ask a question: related to the topic, What does a clean up mean?

The reason being I had trouble with a person changing my entire trial just because, it wasn't right I had to admit
I did get rather annoyed at him currently not emailing but to change someones entire trial...
Is that fair. I do think so.. is that a clean up or a take over.

I think it is the latter. What is your advice to stop people from doing this?

Hello DK, mind if I answer?

The word clean up can could mean differently depending on the context. When I think of someone cleaning up a trial, I imagine a really expert collaborator is fixing up all the technical issues within the trial, such as implementing variables and backgrounds, getting rid of duplicate frames that are redundant to have, or putting in the right merging and/or wait timers. Anything to make your trial play well and look well basically.
I also think of cleanup as someone fixing up all the grammar and spelling issues that may occur.


Now in your case a lack of communication with your collaborator is never a good thing, mainly because if both of you are working on the editor at the same time, you're going to lose progress if one persons work saves over another.

If you're not exaggerating when you said the whole trial script is completely changing in terms of dialogue, plot, etc., then it's time to take your collaborator off your affected trial and let him/her go. It's not just a takeover, but an abuse of trust and destructive collabing. You do this in the manager btw.

But if it's someone who's geniunely cleaning your trial up but you didn't know due to no communication, it's time to have a chat with your collab and set rules and boundaries for reporting changes and letting you know ahead of time at the least. You're the main author after all.


Hope this helps

Clean up basically means fixing whatever is critiqued, or improving on it. Also, what that guy did is not cool, regardless of the reasoning. I say kick him out of the team and find yourself a new collaborator.
