Idea for the confirmation controversy : LUSENET : MARP Editors : One Thread

I've heard a lot of my colleges telling us about their concern for confirmers confirmations not as important as editor confirmations.

I agree with this.

What's the solution? I suggest in addition to the green text being unconfirmed and the regular text being confirmed, there should be WHITE TEXT for EDITOR CONFIRMATIONS. When it becomes white, the score cannot be changed unless you submit a new upload.(similar to the tournament) This will signify that the score is confirmed at the highest level. Either white text or a star next to the score will suffice here.

What do you think of this idea? If it's a good idea - I'll submit it to Zwaxy and Keiichi.

NOTE - this is on the editors board. GB9

i agree with this but i don't agree that anyone has a pure authority with the tools we have to say that someone really legitimatley made a recording. If we are going to have different confirm states I propose one more than just three.

(0) green, no confirmation

(1) orange, confirmers confirm (it plays back to be allowable in marp)

(2) yellow or cyan, editor confirm (analinp, speeds ok if recorded secure mame, and eyball viewing says it's a legitimate play)

(3) white, secure confirm (editor was witness too someone record this recording and verified the frame rate)

one more request, since we are making changes, i propose we have two description collumns in the database for each recording, both are appended to each other during upload display. one can be edited by the uploader and one can be edited by the editor.

ok so it takes three messages for me to explain fully what i'm trying to say, nothing wrong with that :p heh

i meant two description fields, both can be edited by the editor (only to fix typos of the uploader or obscenities) and another description field that can ONLY be edited by the upload author so people can't change (delete) what an editor has stated. Then display the uploaders message immediatley followed by the editors message in [] brackets, perhaps even color the editors message similarl to the color chose to denote a editor confirm color.

I think we should stick with three levels as proposed...

Green - no confirmation (INP has not been viewed)

Orange - playback confirmation (INP plays back to claimed score)

White or Orange with a cool MARP logo - full compliance (INP passes ALL confirmation tests)

A separate message area only viewable by editors is also a good idea!
