in reply to More Non-US Editors Needed?

Just a quick note. I've already started some of the changes that would allow anyone to, for example, do /msg editors Please ... and the message would end up in a "shared inbox" that only editors could use. The "Editors' Nodelet" would show you how many messages there are (ones you haven't seen, archived ones, and the rest). Editors could do things in the shared inbox just like in their own inbox (reply to, archive, and delete messages).

I'd also like to allow modification of messages (which also forces them to be archived, perhaps also marked as "modified" in some way), which probably means everyone will be allowed to modify their archived messages. This will allow editors to "claim" an item that they are about to handle. I think this will stream-line a lot of things that are done rather cumbersomely ATM. This won't replace Nodes to Consider, of course. It might replace Editor Requests to some extent. We'll see how it works and adjust as needed.

This would also work for /msg gods I can see any user's password if I....

More details will be available when things are closer to working.
