Clarification of Consideration - minor addition suggested

In How does Nodes to Consider work?, it would be helpful, I think, to clarify the section showing:

  • four radio buttons, labeled 'keep', 'edit', 'reap', and 'nada' (the default).
  • the requestor and text of the consideration.

Suggested Content:

  • four radio buttons, labeled 'keep', 'edit', 'reap', and 'nada' (the default).
    Keep
    Don't modify in any way. Leave it alone.
    Edit
    Suggest the OP (or the Janitors) modify the posting as suggested by the considering Monk.
    Reap
    Completely remove the node under consideration.
    Nada
    I don't want to vote on this consideration right now, maybe later.
  • the requester and text of the consideration.

The same might be helpful in How do I use the power of consideration responsibly? as well?

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...

A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...otherwise, the problem is not a problem, it is a facct

    ++ for this (your) suggestions, when the Points Fairy makes another deposit in my account.

    More concise, wjw. Thanks for the suggestions.

      Thanks for the clarification update. That would have helped me a bit when I first got to a level where I could contribute that way. Hopefully it will help someone else along the way.

      Regarding the placement in How do I use the power of consideration responsibly?, my thought was to put it just after

      If you're not sure, leave the node for someone more experienced, or ask for advice in the chatterbox.

      My reasoning is that the first set of instructions when one goes to Nodes to consider is in fact How do I use the power of consideration responsibly?. When I first went to that instruction node, I ended up wandering off somewhere into what janitors do and did not come back to the How does Nodes to Consider work? for some time. Again, this may be too nit-picky to mess with. I will leave it to you to decide if it is worth the work. In particular, the distinction between 'keep' and 'edit' had me confused for a bit,(thinking that if a node was up for editing consideration, it would not be kept unless edited I guess). The advice given about asking in chatter box is good, however, some of us are a bit reticent about that user space.

      If you think it is worthwhile, something along the lines of:

      <b>What the vote selections mean</b>
      followed by that same definition list.

      Thanks again for the consideration and work...

      ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

      Reaping does not "Completely remove the node under consideration". Perhaps instead provide a link to What is Reaping??

        Done. Additional wording refinements as well.
