"Submitting draft for review" model

Description

Assuming WP version 1.5.2

The current "sumbit draft for review" model is not satisfactory.

From an administrator account
options->writing

"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.

Benefits:

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.

  • Cc bg|needs-patch added
  • Keywords submit added; sumbit removed
  • Milestone changed from 1.5.2 to 1.6
  • Version changed from 1.2 to 1.5.2

This proposal sounds reasonable - would need a new post status.

  • Keywords dev-feedback 2nd-opinion added; submit model review admin author bg|needs-patch removed
  • Version changed from 1.5.2 to 2.1

I think this works now with the roles system, but maybe changing Save to something like Submit Draft for Review would be more intuitive.

Actually this isn't to do with #1097 is it. Reopening for further review.

  • Keywords dev-feedback 2nd-opinion removed
  • Milestone 2.4 deleted
  • Resolution set to worksforme

As far as I can tell this has been fixed in 2.3 (See #4446), so closing as worksforme.
