One difficulty here is what the 'sighted'
state will be known as in the
non-German encyclopedias. In English, "Sighted" in this context is odd and
doesn't communicate much (in my estimation). Maybe it can be used, or maybe
some other term that is similar in theme, such as 'seen', 'surveyed', or
The terms will be "gesichtet" (see [[de:Wikipedia:Gesichtete
Versionen]]) and "geprueft" (see [[de:Wikipedia:Gepürfte Versionen]]).
"Sichten" means something like browsing/skimming through text.
However, I have absolutely no idea about the connotations a native
speaker has with skimmed/browsed/sighted/whatever, so please help :-)
In that vision theme, one 'positive' icon
would be an eye (eyeball). In
American slang, 'eyeballing' means going over something with some, but not
overly much, attention.
As long as we are not associated with the Illuminati ;-)
