I don't know how feasible this is, but it could be helpful.

Sometimes, when entering data for newly added albums, more than one person will be working on the same album at the same time. This results in one person's work having to be deleted, and a big one of these:

Brick wall

What if we had a button in the album moderation screen that one could push when moderating an album? The button would then turn on an "in session" light on the list of newly added albums, so that others will know not to go in and moderate it at the same time, and to move on to the next one. When the moderation is completed, the light would go off. Also, after a period of, say, 5 minutes without the entries being completed, the light would be turned off automatically so that people don't stay in the same album for long periods of time.

Also, a limit of one per user at a time: this will keep people from claiming more than one album to work on.

Again, don't know if this can be done...but it is an issue that does come up when doing a lot of data moderating.

Thanks!

good idea, it seems to have happened quite a few times recently. I think each entry could be automatically locked for editing by a single user when you enter the screen, and the item could be unlocked, either when the item is saved or after 15 minutes has elapsed (which should be long enough to edit most albums). The item could appear read-only to other people while the item is being edited.

Sounds good!

Yeah, earlier this year I got angry when I'd added an album and another user already made additional edits to it, thus stealing my thunder!

Shame on you

sorry for being slack, this is on the list of changes that I'm currently working on so will be released fairly shortly (I'm hoping within the next week).

This is working, btw....thanks!

However...shouldn't a user be able to only be editing one album at a time?

Did you see a user editing more than one album at the same time?

Comment above got me a little paranoid as I was the only other person editing albums at the time. I don't consciously remember opening more than one at once Shocked Although... I have close to 20 tabs open right now, maybe I did something without knowing.

Whoever just had to go through all my new obscure hip-hop additions, thank you! You're a lifesaver.

In fact, anyone that adds the information is a forum hero. I can never be bothered (though I really should). Thankyou! Very Happy
