Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Notifications/Notify users when their revision has been approved or rejected

< Community Wishlist Survey 2019‎ | Notifications

 ◄ Back to Notifications  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!


  • Problem: On wikis with Flagged Revisions enabled, new and inexperienced users who don't yet have achieved the required user status have to wait for an established editor to review and approve their edits to go live in the default version of an article. This can take many hours, days or even weeks.
  • Who would benefit: Directly: New and inexperienced users who are logged in, by receiving either positive reinforcement or guidance on how to avoid rejection of their edits. Indirectly: all editors and readers, by integrating new contributors quicker and aligning them better with policies and quality standards via closer feedback loops
  • Proposed solution: Create a new notice type in Notifications (for logged-in users), see also phab:T54510.
  • More comments: See also the more in-depth rationale by Atlasowa here
  • Phabricator tickets: phab:T54510

DiscussionEdit

  •   Comment I'm not actively opposing this, but I can see it causing problems in that notifying editors that their edit hasn't been accepted will act as a reminder to vandals, spammers and POV-pushers that they need to try again, so may lead to a significant increase in problematic edits. Iridescent (talk) 10:26, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
I think this is unlikely to be a concern, considering that vandals and other users whose edit gets reverted outright normally already receive a notification about that, see documentation. (In fact the implementation of the "rejected" notification probably needs to take this into account, it may end up being largely redundant to the existing "reverted" notification.)
