Delayed Edit extension

Jump to: navigation, search

A great thing would be to have a delayed edit ability. It would definitely help administrator (myself) to run this site, and perhaps help out other projects in the meantime. The idea is to be able to make an edit, but for it not to be visible until some time in the future. It can perhaps use the same structure from the 'unconfirmed edits' that are used on many of the projects.

Things to think about:

  • How would one go about editing the page that has some edits waiting to happen. If it is an edit on the different part of the page, perhaps the problem can be rectified, otherwise something needs to warn the new editor or the original delayed editor of the issue so that they can resolve it.
  • Should delayed edit be another right? It seems like a great feature, and doubtful that it would be abused since spammers normally try to make their spam seen by spider-bots before admin can catch the edit. But there maybe some use case where an admin would want to separate edit and delayed-edit rights.
