Editing Group Details before Peer Review?

Recommended Posts

I have a group that is currently stuck between officer vote and peer review. I want to make some edits to grammar and add some variables before it gets to peer review, but can't find a place to edit such items. The officers voted yea, acknowledging a few items that needed edited. Do I need to cancel the officer vote, or should I just wait and hope it makes it through the peer review?

 

Help? Comments? Insults? :blink:

Sorry to say it, but it is too late. For now anyway.

 

But you can edit it after it passed Peer Review. Or if it fails Peer Review, you get to start over. If you didn't save your text off site, you should go look at it now and copy it so you have it for later.

 

You can save it to a notepad or word document, or similar. But if it fails, it's all gone.

If you click the big red X next to the Officer Vote step you can go back and edit the details, but you'll have to call for another vote afterwards.

that totally sucks to the utmost....

 

so if you only failed PR because of one vote, and all you really needed was a little editing, you must 'start over'... what is 'starting over'--at what point do you restart? the group should remain, and you have a blank 'create a category' page? no mater whay the reason you failed the vote (missed by one vote, recieved enough suggestions to fix problems, or just plain denied creation), the category should remain as submitted--just like waymarks that are denied are treated. if you 'lose the work' and have comments about it, they then become useless.

 

there has been talk of 'tracking' category editing, what about tracking voting? this can also help to inform about participation levels.

 

the OP category was created and submitted for review (thus all officers approved), it fails but has useful comments. the group then edits/corrects it and it is put out for review again. other than the leader sending the result email to the group, they have no access to that information. votes put before the group are retained, why not the community?

Well I can only speak from what I've experienced. When one of mine failed Peer Review, I had to start all over. Fortunately I had the original descriptions saved in a M$ Word doc, but the variables were totally lost and I had to re-do them.

 

I didn't know about the option that OpinioNate provided.

The reason for this involved a little forward thinking on our part. Consider the group that submits "Cracks In The Sidewalk" and is denied in Peer Review. Now if it's simply reverted to the pre-Peer Review stage they can send it back to Peer Review unchanged, ad infinitum. Don't say this won't happen - It would eventually.

 

By wiping the category after a failed review it encourages people to make careful edits before submitting. Don't worry about silly typos and grammar mistakes. I've said before that denials based on these trivialities won't count against you.

 

As for "the big red X next to the Officer Vote", it's there in the 1-2-3 list for creating a category. You can always cancel a step, including Peer Review, by clicking this X.
