I speak for myself and others who are not native and write their own articles but when we have to check the articles for errors we need to go to fiverr or other sites for proofreading and editing services. BHW doesn't have such a service and I don't understand why?

Real editors and proof readers are expensive. They don't work for peanut rates, so a professional won't be cost effective for the majority of users buying $5 articles.

because most of the time it's faster for us to simply write a new piece instead of correcting all the grammar, syntax and sentences that don't mean anything.

Why don't you take initiative in getting this one started on BHW?

Sonia, read the quote that you quoted. It literally says within the first ten words, that the OP is not native [English, I presume], therefor editing would prove to be marginally better than the original article.

For most of the low quality articles, completely spinning the article itself would be faster and more effective than "proofreading and editing". Plus, then you end up with your own nice, new article, and a lower quality one that can be used for tier 2 stuff.

Maybe with enough spins, you can create a coherent article! Then again, who has time to proofread 10,000 spun articrapples?
