Feature:90083 Need better submission feedback OPEN When the user submits an editing change, instead of displaying the XML (which seemed okay once upon a time) the user should instead see a screen like the moderator sees when viewing the submission.

This should be expanded to incorporate a few of the about features. What's needed is:
  • User fills in text fields, and hits submit.
  • On the next screen, three sections appear: a data warning section, the input data layed out in table form (as the moderator would see it), and an editable form. The user then has the opportunity to correct the form, and resubmit.
  • Once no errors exist, a confirm button would appear, and the user could submit.
The same apps could be used to modify rejected submissions.
90083 is still open and was something I was mentally coding up the other day. I want editors to be able to see the moderator approval screens and to be able to revise their edits. This also involves interlocking the submission state. Right now two moderators can pick up a NEW submission and so part of what's involved here is that a submission gets added as EDITOR-REVIEW. An editor can later pick up the submission and the system will change it's state from NEW back to EDITOR-REVIEW. A new state, MODERATOR-REVIEW, would get added to prevent editors or other moderators from picking up a submission. We also need timeouts or perhaps on the mod screen to see that something has been in REVIEW for X hours/days and to override this as a session must have died. The edit screens are challenging. Anyway, it's a *feature* request. :-) Marc Kupper (talk) 04:32, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
