After going to Northeastern for journalism and working at a couple of papers in the Boston area, I dove from the sinking ship that is print journalism and signed up for service aboard the S.S. Bleacher Report in 2008.

I know what you're thinking—"Cut the nautical metaphor already." OK, you land lubber.

Anyway, I now manage the copy editing team here, so if you're reading this to see who changed something in your story, take my word that I mean well.

If you're reading this because you came here wondering about something in the copy editing world, I'll be happy to field feedback on editors via the Editing Evaluation Form and style questions at the Stylebook Question Form at the bottom of the B/R Stylebook:

    Hi Tim, I've tried tinkering with the table on the second slide of my Bilbao vs. Napoli preview, but those weird indents are still there. Not really sure what's making it happen.

    Thanks for making that adjustment in record for me, Tim. I should've gone in to double-check. Appreciate it!

    Hi Tim, thanks for the edit. Is there a tutorial on using the table feature? I've tried using the table/polls feature before because it looks much better but can never expand the columns beyond 5. You say you can cut/paste in that section, could you tell me how? Thanks!

    Hey Tim, I really appreciate the edit. I changed that in my other articles but forgot to go back and change that article. Thanks for catching it.

    About the "Parthenon": I noticed this got changed from "Pantheon."

    I wanted it to remain the "Pantheon," which the Romans built. Wish the original editor would have left it alone because it was correct, but now I see you had to go in and add Greeks. (I'm going to leave it as is, but I would have preferred it to have had "Pantheon" and "Romans.")
