I have two questions regarding the way the flag system operates.
I understood that the germans were testing it right now, and had chosen
by default the situation where anonymous editors see only the flagged
version (rather than the current version).
The test in the German WP has not started yet and so far there is no
fixed date for it to go live.
What happens when an anonymous edits an article ?
First, when he comes and visit, he sees that there is a mistake or that
he might add content.
So, he clicks on the edit button.
First point: There won't be an edit button in a flagged version! The
button in the usual place will say something like "there may be one or
more newer, yet unchecked versions". Only by clicking on that button the
anon will get the latest version (that may or may be not identical to
the flagged version) and the edit button.
My first question here is
* is there anything special planned from a social perspective, to
explain to the anon editor that what he seems is not what he gets (the
editing version might be different from the version he just visited) ?
Yes, see above.
Then, let's imagine that he improves substantially
the content. Click on
save (still as an anonymous editor).
Now, my second question is
* after he saved, which version does he see (as an anon), the current
version (the one he just edited) or the flaggued version ?
From my understanding: As he can use the edit button only in the mode
that shows the latest version, he will see his version. But anyone else
will still see the flagged version.
