Two or more writers in each project are assigned as "project editors" and are given the roles of primary interface between the project writers and the lead editors assigned to that project. Furthermore, the newly-formed project editors have the task of performing an initial analysis and copy-edit on incoming work by using a triage system with color-codes. The lead editors use this analysis and work to prioritize their efforts and better handle workload. It also allows each lead editor to lead and manage a virtual team of project editors across multiple projects.
