Test The Validator!


Okay, so it only took me about five minutes to whip up a quick validater and put it on the web site.

I need a few people to help me out. If you have an extra minute, go to this page and test out the validater. Feel free to insert a full novel into the text box and then see how many words that it says you have.

Strangely enough, when I did my novel from 2004, OpenOffice told me I had around 50,600 words. This validater said I only had 49,200. If it's going to be THAT far off, then I will probably look for another method.

I'm not sure what I'll be using this for, anyway. I guess I could try to set it up so that when you submit the text, you can enter your username and password to the forums... and then if you're verified, maybe I can have a nice little avatar show up next to your posts and in your profile. That may take me awhile to figure out, however. ;-) Or I could have the validater send me an e-mail and then I'll add the verified image by hand...

Anyway, let me know what you think of this! (And if you think we should really use it to verify the novels to begin with.)

I used my Nano, which was validated on there at around 50,500. On here it was 48,427. O.o

Okay, yeah, so like I said... I think I'll need to find a better method.

Okay. I was going to give it an independent trial, but just got:

"Validator

This is still a work in progress.

The validater will be down until a better way of counting the words is successfully coded."

No... I don't really think we're going to worry about validating this year. The one I made was too buggy, and I haven't had time to try to think up a better way. Unless we do it by hand... which is a possibility that I will possibly think about.

Thanks. I just wanted to check since I'm over the WC and plan on taking a bit of a break for the next few days until I start my next project. 8-)

You already have. :) There's no need to validate this year.
