1. It can be anyone approved by us, so if you were up for it we could discuss and give some guidelines etc
2. Mostly from libcom would be good, but I would say once-a-day or so there could be something from another website
3. I would say memes can be good, as long as there is a link to a text with more detail for people to click on.

If you were up for helping with this that would be amazing! We would be happy to discuss in detail, and for a few days we could give guidance and discuss each post so that you can be sure we're on the same page

For simple pdfs you can convert them into epub using calibre (as long as they don't need OCRing which is another kettle of fish) You can also use it for amazon formats, mobi etc. I don't know how well it would work with complex formatting, but when I have converted files I haven't had any problems. Also checking texts for errors before publishing them is a very important task, proof-reading is a skill in itself that can be done whenever/wherever.

This is very true and there are quite a few texts on libcom that need proof-reading. The main thing off the top of my head is our archive of Khamsin: Journal of Revolutionary Socialists of the Middle East; if anyone fancied doing some proofing for us on that it would be much appreciated!
