in reply to Modify choices for Nodes to Consider

No. Keep the options as they are now.

I think keep is exactly the right word for not moving a node. Edit is indeed not a very good description for moving, but I don't like the words "yes" and "no". "Edit/move" would be sort of acceptable, but "yes" and "no" would IMO make improper considerations more frequent. It could make the impression that consideration is not a moderation tool but a general way to decide something about the post. (Especially because the nodelet title is "Approval Nodelet" instead of the more approperiate "Moderation Nodelet".) Yes, I know the documentated policy is against such misusage, but that's not enough.

Also you don't usually consider a node for moving: you either move it or consider for unapproving so that it can be moved.

    I'd say that for a move, "yes" and "no" are excellent choices. "yes"/"no" may be bad choices for different questions, but then different questions should have different answers to pick from.
