Hey there,

What is the Status field used for, if at all, for Albums. Currently no one has either "flagged" or "approved" an album. And possibly related, when does an entry become "fully moderated"?

Thanks Chris

It was a way to label items as okay even though they might seem incorrect. Mainly used for the automatic need checking listings in the admin of common mistakes that need fixing, such as all the titles letters are capitalized or have an ampersand or comma. Those entries that are okay with all capitalize, etc are set to "Approved". Example movies are "XIII", "JFK", "TRON", "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover" they no longer appear in the list. Hence why the status is only visible from the admin interface as it's only relevant there.

For the pedia moderator collections in the programs we use the number of moderations that have been done on an entry. An item that has been looked at by two moderators is assumed to be in good condition.

We have never used flagged, but are thinking ahead in case we need a flagging system that would put items on the moderators top priority list to look at. And we might expand the status similar if needed.
