|Chris, thanks for your earlier explanation of why comments are associated with specific revisions of an article:
However, whilst the intention is that comments relating to article quality, whilst it is in the review process, do not make it through to the final - published article. It looks like this doesn't really work in practice!
I spotted a typo on my recently published article, which is now awaiting moderation, and as a result have a number of 'my vote of 5' style comments here:
and of course, here, in the right place:
Plotting Circular Relationship Graphs with Silverlight
I have never spotted this problem before, so I am guessing this is a new feature? Also, I am pretty sure that in the past minor modifications that I made to an article did not require moderation.
Can I suggest that it is made much more obvious that comments on an article which is awaiting moderation are specifically for the purpose of flagging quality issues? This might be quite hard to do with the way that it is currently set up because it is presented in exactly the same way as the regular article commenting mechanism, so I suspect regulars would just go into 'auto-pilot'.
(Any chance the messages on my article revisions could be moved to the main article? - id this is a big deal, don;t worry about it)
Regards, Colin E.
