    This suggestion has been added to the team's backlog, and is currently waiting for assignment. Will update when we have an established ETA. 


    Thanks to all who have helped us with further info!

    Often there is a lot of discussion about how to resolve a particular UR, but currently that all has to happen in Discord. Much of that conversation isn't of any interest or benefit to the reporter, and in cases where editors are sometimes in need of discussing whether or not the reporter's provided details may be factually correct, could even cause some harm if the reporter saw them. The UR currently can mainly be used as a way to coordinate with the reporter, but isn't great as a tool to communicate between editors privately. One really nice thing about it would be that every message on a UR includes a link to that UR when it goes out in email, so people can immediately find the exact place involved. When many such conversations are happening concurrently, that can be very helpful.

    Granted, since anyone who can be a reporter can also be an editor, it's not a guarantee of privacy, especially if the reporter happens to be a an active editor who didn't disclose it and remained anonymous, but even the fact that the private responses wouldn't be visible in the reporter's inbox and wouldn't trigger email notifications or in-app notifications, would mean they'd be unlikely to see it.

    Or expanding on Keith's suggestion, a way to tag/mention/specify which editors you wanted to send it to... might help a lot with calling an UR to attention of a particular leader, too, where currently that has to be done separately in discord or the forum.

    As for impact, one thing I would definitely use it for is when merging duplicate places, to get photos from one place record onto the one that will be preserved. Right now we can delete photos from places in WME, but not anything else like adding or reordering them. It would enable editors to ensure higher quality photos as well. For example, we could use this to crop photos better, or redact/blur sensitive information from an otherwise suitable photo.

    R4 seems high to me - It shouldn't be that hard to remind R3's of the guidelines. In any case, whether submitted by a user or by an editor, it's still user submitted content, which generally in USA and probably other countries, means the user is responsible for it rather than the site, if it were found to be infringing.

    Tc: What would a correct category be? I think Sean is saying there isn't any category closer than Lodging right now, and it seems we all agree that Lodging isn't appropriate.
