in thread Please unconsider

I think the point is to message the author before the consideration process, and only resort to janitation if the author fails.

    This might be the point of the OP but I don't see a reasonable way to implement this.

      Implement what? We already have a way to msg a writeup's author.

        If monk A was /msg'ing the author BEFORE consideration, there wouldn't be a way to signal to monk B-Z that they shouldn't do the same thing in the meantime. Which is impractical.

        Hence what some - not all! - do since some years ago, is to write ...

        • EDIT: yadda yadda ... author messaged!
        ... to inform everyone else about the status.

        But in absence of a better mechanism than this, it would make more sense if this "author messaged" was automatically created, at least for EDITs.

        Hope my reasoning is clearer now.

        YMMV (and you are a god, so, I won't argue against you! ;)
