It's true: all of Part II needs to be revised. Much earlier in the history of the project, we simply passed around a document containing contributor commentary with regard to possible changes and unclear plot points. Summaries of that commentary can be found for Chapter Eight, Chapter Nine, Chapter Ten, Chapter Eleven, and Chapter Twelve. It is highly recommended that you review these discussions, the entirety of Part II (if not the whole story), and the relevant character bios before you make further comments and/or suggest changes in this thread.
A significant portion of the outline for Part II needs to be rewritten to reflect the changes that have been discussed. A contributor who rewrites a section by integrating together decisions made here and elsewhere (see above) will likely earn more points than one who rewrites a section on their own. A contributor who submits completely new material without first discussing it might receive no points at all (i.e. if the material isn't fitting). Also note that even well-written rewrites may not necessarily be put into Part II.
Having said all that, I know this task seems daunting but don't let it intimidate you, even if you're new to the project (the plot could certainly use a fresh read, in fact). If you're having trouble figuring out where to start, by advice is to pick a chapter or section that interests you and focus discussion on that. And remember that since this is an official task, even simple good points about Part II are worth more than simple good points made elsewhere.
