What is 'Hit-Saving'?

'Hit-Saving' is a term used to describe a damaging and abusive nature of curating and submitting contributions. It was created by our Community of Curators and Specialists, and is now frequently used around the Slack Workspaces by all types of users.

Put simply, Hit Saving is when a contributor re-submits an existing transcription without making necessary corrections; when they literally hit the save button, without editing existing errors.

Some users think that they're only responsible for the content they directly transcribe, sync, or tag. This is not the case. When you submit a task, you put your name to all areas of it being correct. That means that if there are errors in the lyrics transcription that you haven't corrected, they will be attributed to your account.

It's for this reason that it's important you're really careful about only submitting a task when you're confident that all areas of it are correctly curated.

Hit Saving, due to how damaging it can be, is an action that results in the direct-downgrade of a Curator status. We of course never want to downgrade any Curator, so warmly encourage all contributors to make sure they're avoiding 'Hit Saving' within their contributions.
