Editors: If You Transfer A Review, Does It Count?

cherryredhead88 cherryredhead88
I transferred a review to an admin today for the first time. I have been having a hard time with the particular reviewer because they don't attempt to improve their writing, and I'm not going to constantly re write their reviews.

But now the task market isn't letting me do my last review for the day, saying I'm at my limit of 3/day, but I have only edited 2 aside from what I transferred.

So, does this count as a task completed even though it isn't?

No. Unfortunately, you will be tied to that task until it is completed.

I wish the system would allow editors to send reviews back to contributors or to forward reviews to admin without it locking the editor to that particular job; but unfortunately, that is the way it is, and once you've submitted a task to admin or back to the contributor to revise, the system will not allow you to pick up anything else until everything is squared away with that review. I mean, it could take days or even weeks for a problem with any specific review to be resolved (or possibly even never if you submit a review back to the contributor if the contributor never submits it back).

That's weird, because I submitted a review back to the same contributor before this and it unlocked the task somehow. But when I transfer to admin I see that there is no way to go back and release it to the market.

Forwarding a review to Admin counts as one of your daily allotted editing tasks. I no longer use the forward to Admin option because of this. If I have a review with an issue, I typically email JR with the details (Task number, review title, reviewer name) and he takes care of it. However, the ones I have notified him are for reviews that appear glitched or spam reviews.

Yeah, we're brainstorming good ideas to fix the count too.

Best bet is to email me with the review name, reviewer name, and the task number.

I just had this happen today. I transferred a review, and it is counting it as my 3rd review of the day. Honestly, the situation with this review/contributor is so bad that I don't mind giving up the points I would get for editing the review, but still, it really shouldn't count.

I just transferred my first review to an admin. The review was at least partially plagiarized, with information being directly copied from another review.

I was kind of irritated to see that it's being counted as one of my 3 reviews for the day. I mean, I can see a lot of editors choosing to just publish anything, because if they contact the admin they're losing out on points. It just kind of ends up feeling like, reporting a plagiarized review to the admin somehow counts against the editor, as they don't receive their points for it, or the ability to go on to edit other reviews. It's a shame.

Put it in the community planning forum that there should be a change.

You can email JR with the information and he will remove the review. I would also suggest leaving a note on the review indicating that you are contacting an admin (don't state for plagiarism since that will be EFs call to make) so other editors don't accidentally publish it.

This issue was brought up when the program first started but I don't think any changes have been made.

I sent JR, Stormy, and Sammie a note about it last night, but so far there's been no response.

It's a shame that the editors get penalized in cases like this. Unfortunately, I've already sent it to an admin, so there's nothing I can do with the review now -- except accept that it apparently counts as one my three. Not really fair, but nothing that can be done about it.

I do hope that some changes get made to that aspect of the program in the future though.
