"Submitting draft for review" model
|Reported by:||kidaz||Owned by:||anonymous|
Assuming WP version 1.5.2
The current "sumbit draft for review" model is not satisfactory.
From an administrator account
"Newly registered members"
have the option to
"submit drafts for review"
Such new users can indeed write drafts, however, they are not to know that by writing and saving a draft, that they have involuntarily submitted it for review by higher level users.
A draft, by definition is a work unready to be published.
The user should give his/her consent before allowing the draft to be published. A fitting mechanism, I suggest, would be a "submit" button for each draft.
Ease-of-use: The level 1 user can spend time at their leisure to finish the work, and know there is no possibility it will be seen until he/she deems it ready.
Time-saving: The reviewing process for admins will be easier. They will not have to read and understand a potentially long and complex article, in order to decide that it is not ready for publishing; when the author knows it is not ready for publishing.
