An alternative is to change "keep" to "leave" to more strongly imply "leave it unaltered". Moving something seems to me to be near enough editing so I haven't a problem with that.

    What about the following?
    () Publish As Is  () Publish After Editing/Moving  () Reap  () Abstain

    -- Argel

      too verbose

        Okay, how about this?

        Publish?  () As Is   () After Editing   () Reap   () Abstain

        -- Argel

      That’s misworded. The node is already published. The question you are answering is “what action should the janitors take on this node?“

      If there should be any changes, I’d vote for changing “keep” to “leave,” and maybe also for changing “edit” to “fix,” but I don’t know that the labels really need changing.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        If I vote 'leave', when can I come back? Or does it make the node leave? Would 'fix'ing a node prevent it from moving between sections or prevent it from reproducing?

        I much prefer 'keep' over 'leave'. Even though it isn't perfect, I find it easy to read 'keep it there' or 'keep it as-is'. Hey, perhaps 'as-is' would be a good replacement? Or is that more difficult for some non-native speakers?

        I also much prefer 'edit' over 'fix' but would support going to 'modify'.

        'abstain' would be fine with me as well.
