in reply to Buzzcutbuddha: RE: Changeing a Frontpage Node
in thread Changeing a Frontpage Node

I don't know how big a deal the front page issue is, since it seems that a number of people work from the Newest Nodes nodelet.

A solution that I've been thinking about is you petition 2, or possibly 3, monks of sufficient rank to go to a page where the node number of the offending node is entered. After 2 (or 3) different monks have entered the node number, it then becomes available for a one time edit by the owner.

This removes the work load from vroom, doesn't add significant additional effort for the moderators, and causes the monk-with-a-problem to think about what he's going to edit. e-mail or /msg can be used to petition the ranked monks to grant the editing ability, and if anyone really cares, puts a level of anominimity in the process, since the 2 (or 3) approving monks don't really need to know who each other are.

This same mechanism could conceivably used to allow a user to request a delete of a node, also. In fact, it has the advantage of allowing the regular moderators to delete empty nodes, since when a moderator notices and empty node, s/he just enters the node number. The next moderator does the same thing, and before you know it, *poof*, it's gone.

Oh yea, and a moderator can't enter node IDs s/he owns for editing/deleteing. All action requires the approval of 2 (or 3) non-owning monks.
