  •  OND etiquette for pinch editing (8+ / 0-)

    Dunno for sure, but wanna be an editor? :-)

    Let's see, I think the rule o' thumb is the goal is to post by midnight Eastern. If by 1 am Eastern, OND isn't posted then I think it's fair game. Certainly, if nothing is posted by 2 am, it's free for the taking. I didn't start tonight until 1:30 Eastern, when I finally got home from work, had some dinner, and then noticed no OND was posted.

    While I was working tonight, I kept checking to see if someone else had posted and then one more time before I posted mine. But, if more than one OND gets posted, that's okay too. In the past, I've posted 2nd and took mine down. No big deal for me, but everyone has their own tolerance for discarding diaries.

    Oh and kosmailing the Overnight News Digest is always a good way to let others know you're editing. That is if anyone bothers to check it.

    That's my take.

    Neon Vincent may stop by sometime in the next 24 hrs with an official ruling.
