  • Ticket #37577 – Description

    initial v1  
    1 Our post locking prevents two people from editing the same post, but introduces some awkwardness, in that your option is to wait and hope they exit the post (which slows you down), or boot them out (which could be rude or disruptive), or communicate with them through some other medium (which you might not have). It would be nice if there was a third option... to "raise your hand" about wanting to edit the post. If the editing user is actually working on the post, they could say "not now," or they could "save and release". Or, if there is no response, that could be communicated the the petitioning user, as that could indicate that the editing user has left the post open and abandoned their computer. We could even communicate when the last mouse movement or on-page activity was.
