Credit Guidelines

A Credit cannot be added on their own. The Credit is added when a book they contributed to is entered to the database.

The Profile field is used to give a description of the credit. History, biography, literary styles, etc. belong here. It must be written in clear English, devoid of hype, and as grammatically correct as possible. The first sentence should be a short overview of the credit for quick identification. The rest of the profile should be a concise and factual summary of the credit's career. The average profile should aim be around 150 words.
