It's a very ignorant question, and shows again that you have a completely skewed and incorrect view of the subject (despite believing that you have made substantial contributions that will garner you great prizes and unending praise).
A single error in hundreds of pages can doom the entire endeavor. Or a paper may be riddled with minor errors and yet be extremely valuable nonetheless.
You are asking the wrong questions, concentrating on the wrong things, and completely misjudging what is important and what is not important. This does not provide a lot of confidence in your overall endeavor.
