Node ID Typos in Considerations

There appear to be what I'll assume are typos in two considerations.

The nodes in question are:

#1199646 was considered for reaping as a dupe of itself. I suspect that should have been "a dupe of #1199658" (although that one was posted about three hours later). Anyway, as you can see above, #1199646 has been reaped: unless there's some administrative reason to change the consideration text, there's probably nothing more to be done about that.

I replied to #1199646 (Re: Splitting a file based on matched conditions). My post has been considered for reparenting to #1199646 (its original and current parent). That consideration should also have probably referenced #1199658 for the new parent. I have no problem with the reparenting; however, as it stands, the consideration is confusing: maybe a quick s/46/58/ to fix.

    Thank you for pointing that out. I've solved the problem by reparenting the node to its intended parent, not to the parent stated in the consideration.

    There is no preview for consideration, typos are common, and typod considerations are supposed to be rejected (voted keep)

    Much, much better would be software advanced enough to ask a human where to re-parent the thing.
