|First of all... thanks, it is now working.
Pity is... it seems it is not working as it should (or at least as I consider it should to be really useful)
In an example of #2 I saw high rep members as approvers, which means for me that the "approved author" only refers to the one publishing and not to the one voting.
- 1) If a platinum author publishes without moderation it is said: Published by Editor or trusted author. OK
- 2) If a non-platinum writer publishes through moderation it is said: Published by [nicks 1 to 5]. OK
- 3) If a non-platinum writer gets edited by the CP-Staff, it is said: Published by editor or trusted author. OK, but in my opinion not useful.
- 4) This blog example[^] is published, there is no versions history and the author is by far under the limit to avoid moderation by himself (1,3k total). It is said: Approved by editor or trusted author. Maybe a problem with the type blog?
- 5) This article A Working TCP Client and Server With SSL[^] is from an author without enough reputation to avoid moderation (9k total) has 25 versions (CP-Staff editions were 23, 15, 11, 8 and 6) but it is said: approved by editor or trusted writer. So it seems that the highest status received in the past remains active for the rest.
The biggest problem and reason for this suggestion is and has always been to try to stop systematical approvers that click on OK for articles that are spam, very low quality, have serious format problems and similar things. Which means, if we can't really see who is approving every version, then it brings no additional value.
CP-Editors are hard workers (thank you and kudos for it), but if they do an edition with the best intentions, then we can't use the information anymore, because the articles get approved by "editor" and the status remain for future updates as in #5
I think that the best would be to save the "published by" within the versions history (if possible) and...
- if CP-Staff edits an article in moderation and is published for the 1st time, then "approved by editor or trusted author" as now,
- if the article was already published then keep the last "approved by" list (as a kind of "ghost" editor)... that would do the job.
[Edit] Typos corrected
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
